Silky Sac – wash with care

We love multi-use products which is why Silky Sac is one of our favorites here at Hysterectomy Store. It’s perfect to wash your abdominal binders and Post Op Panties, and maintain their integrity. The Silky Sac will make sure they get cleaned, but without getting stuck or caught on other articles in the washing machine.

The Silky Sac is great for bras, panties, and any other delicate items – multi use! I personally love it, as it’s easy to separate the items that shouldn’t go in the dryer!

Stay ahead of the pain

Stay ahead of the pain!

As you head home, your doctor or hospital nurse will discuss pain management with you. You may be given a prescription or you may be encouraged to take over the counter Tylenol or ibuprofen. Make sure to ask your doctor about any questions you have about your pain.

Keeping a notepad next to your bed or chair will help you track your dosages. Those first few days/weeks of surgery can leave you feeling very tired, and it’s easy to be confused. By keeping track you won’t forget a dosage or take too many.

But, of course, don’t let your pain get away from you. Take your medicines on schedule. If you ignore your pill schedule, you will find that it is hard to “stay ahead of the pain”.

The use of ice packs will often minimize your need for pain medicines. We know from personal experiences, our pocket abdominal binder with ice packs helps a great deal to provide gentle compression along with cold packs.

Ice on your incision will be something that will help your incision to heal faster and will help you to minimize your overall pain level. Feel better soon!

Stay Loose

A big tip that we share is to wear loose fitting clothing post op.

Now is not the time to try to get into your skinny jeans. Wear clothes that are not binding across your belly for your best comfort. This is just temporary! You will get back into your favorite jeans, but give your body time to heal.

During your recovery, your belly is likely to be tender and swollen. We love this “Wear Around Shirt” made with 100% cotton and comes in several colors. They are customer favorites!

Stay comfy during your surgery recovery.
