A great product for TRAM Flap recovery
I wish I'd had one of these
This evening I was hunting around on the internet to distract myself from poor sales of my book Cancer Time Bomb and to get my mind off of all the resumes I sent off today to jobs that likely won't have the courtesy to send a response, when I came across this product at GAIAM.
It's a bit expensive, but boy, would I have liked to have one of these bed and leg lounges after I had my TRAM Flap breast reconstruction. In the months that followed my return home from the hospital, this would have been terribly convenient; something that would have been wonderful when I had to remain sitting up at night because my stomach was so tight and reclining was impossible. My husband wouldn't have had to pile up loads of pillows to achieve the same effect.
If you can't afford these costly cushions, there's still the cheaper bed lounges that can be found at Target, WalMart, or Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Anyway, if you are heading into a TRAM, my best wishes for a speedy recovery.
