We’re almost a month out (this Wednesday) from my c-section and I’m definitely still working on healing. Saturday, my mom and I went shopping to pick up a few things and it was difficult walking for a longer amount of time. I still feel a strong tightness in the area. A pulling that makes me feel like I’ve been sewn together and could unravel. I’m still taking pain medication because by the end of the day, I’m quite sore.
When I left the hospital, they gave me this white compression bandage and told me to wear it. Shortly after I left the hospital, this bandage not only frayed everywhere, but also didn’t fit correctly. As my uterous shrank, I could not get the bandage to mold to my body. Instead it folded over and caused more pain then help.
I looked only to find something akin to the white bandage that I could wear. This would prevent the folding which was causing considerable amount of pain. I found the MS-Panty. The MS-Panty is a one piece that offers extra compression over the abdomen to shrink uterus, reduce swelling and flatten post baby belly. It was SO COMFORTABLE! I was immediately in heaven from the support it gave.
Fast forward a week and I found that my incision area was still really sore. I looked online and found the same company that creates the MS-Panty creates another item specifically for c-section mommies. I had no idea! I ordered the C-Panty and hoped for the best.
The C-panty offers most all the benefits of the MS-Panty but it also has a silicone panel over the incision which speeds healing & reduces scars appearance. It provided an extra piece of cushion I need over the area.
I’m still struggling with healing. But the C-Panty is a huge help. It’s very comfortable to wear all day. Honestly, I wish I had bought this right after the hospital stay (ordered online) because I firmly believe it is helping with my recovery. The silicon acts as a protective layer against my clothes. I think every C-Section mom should make sure to get a C-Panty for their recovery.
I bought both products myself and was not approached by anyone for this review. I’ve been on the hunt for products that help me heal so I can focus on being the best mom to pumpkin.
