The Recovery Pillow was designed as a post-op support pillow for breast (mastectomy) surgery or other surgeries (heart or other). It relieves underarm pressure to sensitive surgical areas or it can brace painful areas. It is heart-shaped and covered in a silky, green removable cover (can be removed, if needed to wash). It is stuffed with microbeads to allow the pillow to adjust to each individual's comfort needs while still maintaining the needed support required. The pillow is 10 x 12, contains polystyrene beads, 84% nylon and 16% spandex. Although it was designed as a post-op surgical support pillow, it can also be used to bring comfort while sitting for long periods of time and for travel. This is a great gift for post-surgical patients to provide comfort and relief during healing.
