I wore mine for a couple of weeks. It really helped with those unexpected coughs and sneezes!

The BariatricPal Store carries the Premium Abdominal binder for Bariatric and plastic surgery by Deroyal at https://store.bariatricpal.com/products/premium-abdominal-binder-for-bariatric-and-plastic-surgery-by-deroyal. I personally didn't use one after either of my weight loss surgeries but patients tell me that it makes a HUGE difference. I used one after RNY reversal since that was an open procedure and I don't think I could have managed without it.

They gave me one at the hospital the first time I got out of bed. I used it about a week or 2. It helped quite a bit because you don't have to use your hands to support your sore belly when moving around. Also, it makes walking more comfortable.

Thanks everyone! I had an open procedure the first time and the binder was a Godsend so I am hoping for Lap this time :)

Does the hospital usually have one available if you ask or do you need to purchase one?

Some do and some don't. I'd ask your surgeon prior to surgery.

Never was even offered one- maybe my surgeon doesn't believe of them ?

I am just curious if they still have you wear a binder after surgery?
I will be 3 weeks out on Wednesday & I've wore mine constantly. I did remove it to wash it and could tell the difference in aches while moving around, bending etc.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
