The seller and the product are both wonderful!! My moms surgery was scheduled very quickly and when I contacted the seller to see if I could get the jacket in time she was very responsive and made sure the jacket arrived before the surgery. My mom was very happy with the jacket. The material was nice, it fit well and has been extremely helpful with her drains. With the jacket on no one even knows the drains are there. I highly recommend this jacket for anyone who may have to go through this type of surgery.
Got this for my sister who had a double mastectomy last week ...she really loves it and needs it. My advice would be to buy two so you can wash one as you need it 24/7. Seller was so helpful and supportive giving her contact info for both me and my sister as she has been through it herself! My sister said it is very soft too! Highly recommended!
I can not say enough GREAT things about this product and customer service. It is well made and serves the purpose with style. I messaged the owner telling her my Aunt was having surgery that week and she put it in the mail with 2 day priority. I can’t tell you how happy my aunt was to find a product that would help her recover. I recommend over and over! Thank you for what you are doing for breast cancer patients!
My sister and I were looking for post breast surgery comfort clothing for our young (32) niece. We ordered 2 Surgical Drain shirts. I asked to have the package delivered quickly enough so she would have the shirts when she got home from the hospital. Carol couldn't have been kinder. The shirts were there on time and we immediately got feedback from our niece as to how comfortable they were, especially compared to the hospital's solution of pinning her drains to the inside of her shirt. The drains moved with the shirt so they weren't pulling on her when she moved. We're so glad we found this site at a time when even the smallest of comforts make the healing process more tolerable.
I purchased this for a friend who was having a double mastectomy on the 24th. I gave it to her ahead of time and she loved it! She said the fabric was very soft (I agree) and the pockets were going to come in very handy when she went home. Thanks, Carol for all of your help!
Our goal is to provide patients needing surgical drains with a discreet solution for going about daily activities.
Our surgical drain jacket is uniquely designed to help you throughout your entire healing process. It is ideal for many types of surgeries such as Mastectomy, Reconstruction, Breast Reduction, Abdominoplasties, many back surgeries, and all other surgeries that require surgical drains. It's so comfortable you can even sleep in it!
I found it much easier to sleep upright therefore, a recliner is a great option. Also, Contour Livings sells a Foam Wedge System that is a good option as well.
You may want to have some prepared meals made and frozen so that you can take time to rest and not have to worry about meals.
If you have time to get in shape before your surgery this will definitely help decrease your healing process.
After Mastectomy my doctor advised me to stretch and reach my arms above my head as much as possible right after surgery while I was in the hospital. I found this extremely helpful and I was back to myself very quickly. Physical Therapy is also an option that is available after many surgeries.
Arnica has been known to help reduce bruising and help with pain reduction. Always ask your doctor before using anything other than what has been prescribed for you. It is available in tinctures as well as creams and gels to apply topically.
With a prescription, insurance companies will cover two therapeutic garments per year. (Insurance code #L8015)
