Wedge pillows after tummy tuck

Hi, I’m just wondering if anybody purchased any wedge pillows for when they got home from having their surgeries. It was recommended for me to get one and also a knee support one. Is it really necessary ? and if so could anyone recommend where I could buy one from ? I’ve found a few on the net but not local… Thanks x

    I have a memory foam wedge pillow at work as I broke my tailbone and has a hole for the tailbone and loved it … So I got myself one for home after the surgery they were just from officework and make it really comfy for driving! However my sister in law brought the foam from Clark rubber for after her hip replacement and I’ve even seen some wedge pillows at spotlight! There not surgical/ medical pillows but her surgeon said that it would be fine and my office work one is a little on the thin side but takes the edge off and helps with my back when lying down

    I just used 2 pillows stacked for 1st six weeks and now still sleep with a body pillow (10 weeks post op after tummy tuck)

    I had pillows under my knees and built my own wedge with a European pillow and normal pillows so a wedge would be handy if you can find one!

    I reckon it would really help

    I slept with the U pillow for weeks. It got me in bed as soon as I came home from hospital. Best thing I bought
