Husband asking what to buy wife for her hysterectomy

Suggestions on what husband should buy for wife’s hysterectomy?

Question: My wife is scheduled for a hysterectomy in the next few weeks. Do you have suggestions on what I could buy for her?

We love getting this question! The Hysterectomy Store is full of great products that are helpful and soothing for any hysterectomy patient.

First, it might help to know that 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, many women enjoy have a tummy pillow for their tender belly. The Hysterectomy Store offers beautiful tummy pillows with a pocket. These arrive 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!

Woman asking what to buy for upcoming hysterectomy

If I can only buy one item, what do you suggest?

Question: If I can buy only one thing to prepare for my hysterectomy, what item do you recommend to be the most helpful for surgery recovery?

Answer: Good question! We get this question frequently so we can try to help you in a way that provides you with the information to help you decide.

The top sellers in our store are these five items.

  1. Post-op Panty
  2. Abdominal Binder
  3. Pocket Tummy Pillow 
  4. Pocket Binder
  5. Cold pouch package

For women who have already had their surgery, their choices are different than if their surgery is upcoming. The purchase decision is then based on how far along in recovery you are!

First, women seem to buy the tummy pillow and one or both of the binders for early in their recovery. Secondly, the Post-op panty is the purchase our customers typically make after the first week, as they are feeling better and moving around more.

We suggest you click on the above links to read more about each of these products and how they might be helpful for your specific kind of surgery.
