Do you have ideas to manage my hot flashes and other menopause symptoms?
Yes! Indeed, we do!
Don’t underestimate the power of a fan. And if you can’t be sure there will be one where you’re going, equip yourself with a handheld, battery-operated one or a fan that is USB for your phone. Some even have a spray feature built in!”
“Layers. Always dress in a way that if a hot flash takes over, you can remove a piece of clothing without over shedding!”
“Carry cold water with you and keep it by your bedside at night. Water makes for quick relief when a hot flash hits. You can drink it down or pour it on, depending on where you are and how desperate you are!”

Question: My wife is scheduled for a hysterectomy in the next few weeks. What do I buy her?
This is our favorite question! The Hysterectomy Store is full of great products that are helpful and soothing for any hysterectomy patient.
First, we’ve packaged some items together into “sets” to keep things easy for buying. One of the sets is the Great Binder Set with both Pocket Binder, an Abdominal Binder, two cold/heat packs and a Silky Sac for laundering the items. Click to see the Great Binder Set.
Secondly, the tummy pillow is a must have item for hysterectomy recovery. The pocket tummy pillows comes with 2 cold packs and are used to soothe and protect a tender, sore hysterectomy tummy. Click to read about the Tummy Pocket Pillow.
And lastly, of course, when in doubt, we offer a Gift Certificate that you can easily purchase and give to your wife for any amount. In fact, once you purchase the gift certificate, we send her an email with instructions on using it in our Hysterectomy Store. A gift certificate allows her to make the choices for her upcoming surgery.
We hope your wife feels better soon!
