Healing Comfortably: A Comprehensive Guide to Surgical Recovery for Patients & Caregivers


This 26-page guide includes some of our favorite insights gathered over the last 8 years for making it through surgery gracefully. This guide is tailored to those going through breast surgery but the tips and insights are useful for most people walking the road to recovery.

In this little booklet you'll find the following: 

Before Surgery

  • About the Recovery Brobe
  • Mastectomies: What to Expect
    • Before Surgery
    • On the Day of Surgery
    • During Surgery
    • After Surgery
  • Checklist: What to Pack
  • Prepping Home for Post-Op Life

After Surgery

  • Caring for JP Drains
  • Five Little Things the Make A Big Difference While You're Recovering

Caregiver Resources

  • Comprehensive Guide to Caregiving
  • Long Distance Caregiving
  • FAQ: Helping with Medical Decisions
  • Helping Hands & Resources
  • Brobe Recovery Items
  • Surgeries that Are Better With Brobe


Some other items to consider if you are purchasing this bundle for post-operative recovery:

  • Hot/Cold Packs: Cold or Hot therapy packs fit perfectly into Recovery Bra (included with every Brobe) or Comfort Pillow to help reduce pain or swelling
  • Post-Operative Drain Belt (AKA The Shower Belt): Originally designed for wearing into the shower, but routinely worn under clothing for optimal comfort. Pockets are made from moisture-wicking fabric, to dry quickly.  
  • Post-Operative/Thermal Comfort Recovery Bra: Bra includes inner breast pockets for Ice Packs or prosthetic breasts. Having one recovery bra is essential, but it's always a good idea (and very convenient) to have an extra bra to wear while the other is in the wash.
  • Thermal Comfort Contour PillowSuper soft, machine washable pillow, designed to hold hot/cold packs for targeted thermal therapy relief & hot or cold relief.
  • Cooling Wrap: Scarf designed to cool core body temperature for 3-4 hours of relief via crystal polymer cooling technology. Non-toxic, completely reusable & tucks discreetly into your favorite summer scarf.
  • Extra Recovery Brobe (Robe + Recovery Bra Combo): Most women basically live in their Brobe for the weeks following surgery, so it's good to have an extra Recovery Brobe for a little variety (and post-op hygiene)
