Has anyone been told they will use a compression garment after Sleeve surgery? I asked my dr nurse and she said the dr would decide after my surgery.

Your medical team's answer, actually, is the only answer that matters.

What we say, as you know, strangers on the internet, should not matter to you at all.

But, you do you, I guess.

Good luck,

I woke up with one on and it’s been very helpful and at times annoying & irritating.

If your team doesn’t recommend one and you feel like maybe you want to wear one, ask them why they aren’t recommending one. They may have a very good reason for it and following your teams plan is always best.

Best of luck!

I woke up from surgery with a stomach binder on. I was told that it was for my comfort and I could remove it or put it back on as desired. I didn’t have a lot of pain post op and I took it off when I got home from hospital and didn’t notice a big difference but have heard people on here say it helped them a great deal. They do sell them on Amazon but I agree with above post that you should probably ask your surgeon first.

I had one after plastic surgery, but not bariatric surgery.

I was given one in the hospital but it was more annoying than helpful so I never used it.

My team didn't suggest it one way or another, but when my sister had her surgery (gastric bypass), she swore it was a life saver. I asked a nurse when I was in the hospital if I could wear one and she was more than happy to give one to me.

It was helpful for me, but everyone is different.

Thanks everyone for your responses. Definitely following whatever my dr says. There are so many varied requirements by doctors for before and after surgery, especially the pre-op diet that I have read on here. Not comparing, just wondering.
