Post Op Pressure Cushion

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good pressure cushion after surgery, I am waiting on a date for total proctocolectomy with permanent ileostomy and just trying to get organised and take my mind off the upcoming surgery!

Many thanks

i cant be of any help on the cushion, but i can wish you good luck with your surgery and recovery Smile  the waiting is the hard part, i remember it well even tho its been decades.

The EHOB inflatable waffle cushion is the best! It made life bearable after having my rectum/anus removed. Wishing you the best on upcoming surgery.

I'll second that, this is the only thing I used after my proctectomy.  My surgeon gave me mine after surgery, didn't cost a dime.
