An Insight Into Our Post Op Recovery Cushion
A small hand-made, premium quality curved cushion that offers comfort, support and protection for anyone who has undergone specific surgery and requires an aid to enhance their recovery.
Whilst this specially shaped cushion was initially designed for women who have had a mastectomy or partial mastectomy, this product is also perfect for shoulder injuries and post-op shoulder surgery. It has also been tried and tested for knee injuries, again supporting the knee when resting after surgery. This curved cushion has been empathetically created in order to keep you cool and to provide comfort and protection for scarred tissue. The size and shape fits perfectly to aid pain- relief post operation.
The pillow is sympathetically tried and tested.
It is made from 100% Hi-soft polyester filling and a 100% cotton cover making it washable at 40C
Unlike most cushions, it has no fasteners, zips or poppers; instead it has been designed to incorporate an envelope style design for the opening to ensure the maximum amount of comfort.
An aid designed to help you adjust

In 2008 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, resulting in a mastectomy. No longer having a breast meant that the area had no padding, just bone. This made it very uncomfortable in bed, in the car or relaxing watching television. I designed this cushion, shaped with a curve, to give the maximum amount of comfort to the area so that it snuggled under the arm-pit.
This cushion went everywhere with me as it gave me the padding I needed. I also made sure that it was made from 100% cotton to alleviate the onset of hot flushes.
My mastectomy pillow became my best friend and made my life a lot less painful and uncomfortable. It certainly worked for me and provided me with a comfort and confidence I so needed in this difficult time.
The support I received from this simple cushion made me realise that other people would benefit from this design. I therefore decided to share it, not only with other mastectomy and partial mastectomy women, but also with patients with other specific injuries and recovering from post-operative surgery.
Customer Review: February 2016
‘ I received my cushion as a present following a mastectomy and what a lovely gift it was! The cushion allowed me to rest so much more comfortably. It was solid enough to support me on my surgery side whilst I had my drains in and I felt comfortable and supported at night without the fear of moving and pulling my drains out. The information sent with my cushion was a lovely touch as was the gorgeous design! Thank you so much for helping make a difficult time a little easier.’
