I did it! My surgery was two week’s ago today so i thought that now would be a perfect time to share with you some helpful item’s to aid in your at home recovery.
I have heard they are a life saver when you have T-Rex arms after surgery and can’t lift your arms above your head. Best kept secret is the MIENA ROBE with BELT: comes with detachable drain pouches & belt so your drains are out of sight out of mind and your free to relax.
2 YOGA SOCKS:
Your bound to feel a little off balance from all the medications after surgery. Yoga socks will help you get a grip. The soles are rubbery and made to create traction so you’ll feel a little more stable when moving around.
3 FACE & BODY WIPES:
All the wipes. Since I wasn’t able to shower while in the hospital these Summers Eve wipe in coconut helped keep the funk at bay while helping me feeling like my fresh clean normal self.
4 DRY SHAMPOO:
Taking a shower is a bit of a production the first few weeks and you definitely need assistance washing your hair while your sporting those obnoxious drains. Living Proof Dry shampoo will leave your hair smelling great and looking oil free.
This is #1 the most important must buy!! Knowing that after surgery my arms will be in full T-rex mode from my chest muscels being cut, poked, and prodded. I hear that pillows are the key to finding a comfortable position to lay, sit, and sleep in, and this pillow is by far the biggest bang for your buck!
YOGA SLEEP PILLOW: This amazing Yoga Sleep pillow can be folded into various positions. Whether your sitting or sleeping this tri-section design allows full-body support that promotes relaxation and a good nights sleep.
6 DRAIN HELP:
Belts, camisoles, Lanyard etc… There are so many options for what you can do with your drains. I went for some incognito options.
FLIP BELT:The Flip Belt is a great way to go incognito mode just slip them in the pockets and poof no more drains hanging all over you. Plus I can reuse the belt for running when i get back to feeling more myself.
Makes showering/Bathing once you get the go ahead less stressful and more enjoyable. Just slip the drains through the clip hoop and your good to go hands free. No worries about exposing your drain to water or geting tangled up.
