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.

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.

I did not have one or need one.

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

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
