It has been a while since I last posted but I have been checking posts on a regular basis. I am recovering well since my reversal, although it was a bit rocky at first. I am back to work full-time which is kind of unbelievable coming from where I was! I arrived just in time to see my 401K turn into a 201K! Ha, Ha, a little accounting humor (very little!).
I know many of you, like me, have had several abdominal surgeries. Needless to say, my abdominal wall is really weak and I know that I am prone to having incisional hernias. My question is, has anyone had experience with an abdominal support wrap. The hernia supports I see in the catalogs are kind of "low riding" and my area of weakness extends north of the navel. I have seen some "slimming wraps" but I am not sure if that would be appropriate although it looks like it might fit the bill. I'm probably in-line for hernia surgery at some point but I would like to put it off as long as I could.
If anyone has any thoughts on the matter it would be appreciated. Thanks,
