A burst appendix and a QualiBelly abdominal support
Our Canadian distributor recently sent a QualiBelly abdominal support to one of his collaborators rather than flowers.
She had just been through emergency surgery for a burst appendix.
The day after she received the QualiBelly she sent an email to our distributor and the response that came back to him was great feedback for this product and we just had to share it.
Here is what she had to say:“Don't know how to thank u. Why are all hospitals not giving this to their patients with incisions. I was finally able to get out of bed in less than two minutes as opposed to ten and didn't have to find a way to hold my stomach with a pillow and try to maneuver myself up without falling out of bed all at the same time. This should be made mandatory :):):). Thank u. I owe u one and so does the rest of my family who didn't have to listen to me groan endlessly. “

Next time you hear about someone getting abdominal surgery send them a QualiBelly or QualiBelly Advanced instead of or together with flowers to help them recover faster and get out of the hospital sooner.

After major surgery, the last thing anyone wants to deal with during their recovery is excessive pain. Of course, some post-op pain is usually inevitable, which is why pain management can have a big effect on the recovery experience of a patient. Not only does this make the recovery period more comfortable, studies have shown that successful post-op pain management can prevent long-term complications and shorten the recovery time.
There are many ways to control pain after surgery. Doctors may prescribe a number of different courses of action, including pain medication. Some of the most commonly prescribed pain medications are opioids.
External wound supports have not yet been considered as standard adjunctive therapy in ERAS protocols. Yet, they could very well be an important complementary treatment that easily fits into the fast track regimes. In addition, they could help patients to be more compliant with the activity protocols in the hospital and at home.
