Post-op garmen question
« on: May 12, 2008, 03:54:46 PM »
I did my surgery and feel ok but one think confused me. I got a surgical post-op garment but on the cover it said it was for abdomen area?? It doesnt look like a normal undershirt but rather as a large compression bandage for the chest area. Do you think this is ok or are they just saving money on me? ???

Yea, it's okey. I've got the same thing. It's annoying tho, cause it keeps slipping down.

It's not supposed to be that tight man :p. If you're feeling any discomfort - loosen it up a bit.

No actually the part that hurts is the bare lower back. the garment only goes from the belly button upwards
