If you’re reading this, I’ve survived my surgery. Then again, since I’m scheduling ahead, you could be reading it because I possessed your computer and made you check out my site! In either case, I’m thinking about the things I’ll need to help me out after surgery.
I had a hysterectomy, but I think these products are perfect for any surgery. Also, I’m trying out this postpresso thing, so these are affiliate links.
Must-Have Products to Make Life Easier After Surgery
Snoogle Chic Total Body Pillow
Snoogle Chic Total Body Pillow
I first got one of these when I was pregnant with my son. That was like 9 years ago. I’ve gone through three more since then! My current one is on its last leg, but I still love it for recovering from surgery. It’s so supportive, especially after a c-section or hysterectomy (hey, both surgeries happen in the same spot!).
Bedlounge Hypoallergenic Ultimate Back Wedge
The Ultimate Back Wedge, Bed Rest, Back Support, Comfort Reading Pillow
This guy is kind of pricey, but oh my gods, do I ever want one! It’s hard to lay down flat after surgery, especially after the kind that involves getting your uterus ripped out. I love how supportive this back wedge looks!
Galaxy Tab 3
I have a Galaxy Tab 2, and it’s a lifesaver when you’re stuck in bed! I’m supposed to spend the entire week after my surgery resting, but I’ll go stir crazy. Plus, I need to check my email daily. My business can’t survive an entire week down. Well, maybe it could, but I couldn’t. I can stay in bed like a good girl and still check in on my site and email with my tablet.
VERB Dry Shampoo
Showering after surgery is tricky enough without having to wash my crazy long and thick hair. I still have some of my Dry Shampoo left over from my VERB review before Christmas. It will help absorb any oil that builds up from laying in my bed all day!
wireless Indoor/Outdoor Portable Intercom
I absolutely need one of these so I can issues orders from my bed! I probably won’t get one, as I would drive everyone nuts with it, but seriously! Ever post-op person needs one!
What do you think? Do you have any must-have products to make it easier to recover after surgery?

I hope your surgery went well and you will recover quickly. You’ve got some great advice in this post regarding items to have on hand after surgery. I’ve actually been looking for a back wedge like that for a bigger sized person, the others feel like they are made for little people and don’t provide proper support.
Thank you! I know what you mean about smaller wedges. I like to feel like I have room to move, like I’m not confined to support in a tiny area.
First, I want to wish you a speedy recovery. I hope you are comfortable with minimal pain.
Thank you for the helpful list for life after surgery.
Thank you, Deborah! I really appreciate your good wishes! It’s been a week and I’m finally able to sit without getting tired after ten minutes, so that’s progress!
I’d also love to have one of those back pillows but at least I do have a tablet to play with when i’m not feeling well
