Hey all,
i am having a unilateral mastectomy with FLAP reconstruction.
can anyone please advise if i need to buy specific pillows to help ease sitting/ getting up or sleeping post surgery ?
Any links or recommendations?
Thank you all

@Sumi

i bought a wedge pillow on Amazon and I used it for about 6 weeks post left mastectomy. There’s a good assortment available. I also used a pillow to support my left arm while sleeping .
Good luck

@Sumi when I had my mastectomy in 2011 I didnt even know there were specialized pillows.. maybe there weren't. I had no problem without one but perhaps it is better to have one just in case. Everyone is different.
