So, now that I’m healing from my hysterectomy, I realize that I made a lot of mistakes after my mastectomy. First, I sold the medical table that I had bought. That table was so useful in carting around laptop, tissues, snacks, phone, etc – I could push it all over the house and/or keep it near me in bed.
Second, I threw out all of the abdominal binders I had. Now that my belly is sore, distended, and painful, I realize that having that pressure would probably help. They sell these on the hystersister website, but I’m too annoyed with myself that I got rid of my free ones that I can’t bring myself to buy new ones at $40 a piece!
I also got rid of all of my granny panties. Those were the panties I found that had some tummy compression. I bet that would feel good too now, especially because my current underwear waistband is rubbing my bellybutton, and there are stitches there. I did get those at Target though for $6 a pair, so I might be able to just get some more pretty easily.
