Post Mastectomy Pillow

The recovery period after a chest-related surgery can be extremely difficult and overwhelming. As such, you’re going to need all the help and support you can get, and you can count on this mastectomy pillow to be there for you. It’s a must-have for post-surgery care and can help with a speedy recovery by protecting the affected area from any accidental bumps or contact that can prolong the healing process. It also helps lessen the discomfort while lying down and helps make recovery a lot more manageable.

If you’re looking for a way to stay comfy during your surgery recovery, then this post-mastectomy pillow is for you!

Here are some features of our mastectomy pillow:

  • Unique design
  • Machine-washable
  • Adjustable straps
  • Secure buckle closure
  • Gift-ready packaging
  • Soft material

A more restful sleep

Sleeping can be a challenge right after a surgery, especially if you’re not used to sleeping on your back. The lack of proper sleep can also negatively impact your recovery and mood.

This padded mastectomy pillow is designed to rest easy over the chest and tuck neatly under the arms. It fits with just the right amount of firmness so the arms can rest comfortably. The foldable pillow is also designed to bend perfectly along the torso instead of pressing down on it.

A more comfortable recovery

Coming home after major surgery can be difficult, especially when it comes to putting on the seatbelt. If you’re not careful, this may affect the injured area and make the healing process take longer.

This mastectomy pillow helps provide a barrier so the seatbelt doesn’t press or rub against the injured area. Despite the padding, it won’t negatively impact the position of the seatbelt nor put you in a compromising situation during the ride home.

Thoughtfully designed

With everything you’re going through, the last thing you need is a pillow that gives you more problems than solutions. This is why we’ve designed our mastectomy pillow with your comfort and convenience in mind.

This pillow is machine-washable and the removable insert makes cleaning so much easier. The strap secures the pillow in place and prevents it from slipping down or twisting. Also, the handy pockets help keep everything you need within reach.

    When you are first diagnosed with breast cancer you are so overwhelmed! I had a double mastectomy so I knew I had to sleep on my back. The pillow rest easy over the chest and tucks under the arms so it helped me to not toss at night. I also slept in a recliner which helped me to keep my head elevated. I am so happy I bought this pillow because it really helped me get thru a very difficult time!

    I bought this for my grandmother who just had a cancerous lump removed from her breast. She said it was lightweight, comfortable, stayed on, and the pockets were perfect for holding nice packs inside and her items on the outside. She especially loved using it to sleep with while healing from her procedure. It prevented her from rolling onto that side while being able to sleep.

    This pillow was amazing after my bilateral mastectomy. Having the seam line under the arms helped the pillow to bend perfectly to where I needed it without me having to hold it down & it rested my arms on the pillow instead of along my sides where part of my incision is.

    Love this product!!! This is my 2nd battle with breast cancer, and could have used something like this 15 years ago!! Also would be great for C-Sections, because this is nice and big to cover your entire front. If you have gas, you can put a hot pad in it and put on your intestines. Cold pack for swelling and healing. Or just if you are not feeling up to par to cuddle like a teddy.Front pocket can be used for your medications and notes on when you took them last and next time to take them. Phone numbers for emergency too. So glad I purchased this. Will not have to hold my seat belt away from me the whole ride home in the car this time either!!!! Thank you so much.

    I had a breast reduction surgery and had a very hard time during healing. I have two young children who love to crawl all over their mother and this pillow really saved me in helping protect my incisions. I used it on the car ride home as well to help keep the seatbelt from hurting me as well. The pockets in the front make it so very convenient! I don’t have to strain to try and find my phone, book, remote whatever. I use it to hide my snack as well!

    This pillow has been perfect for my recovery from a single mastectomy. The firmness is perfect for supporting my arms in any position while keeping pressure off my torso. The cover is so soft and includes two pockets for keeping everything I need close by. The inserts can be removed for washing so no worries about lumps after laundering! I wasn’t sure if I would use the strap but it is absolutely perfect for keeping the pillow comfortably positioned in the car, on the couch and in bed. I have plans for reconstruction and know my trusty pillow will be helpful then as well. One thing I will add is, as a friend, I had always wondered what to do for loved ones going through breast cancer. Now I know…BUY THEM THIS PILLOW! ❤

    I bought this for my sister who recently had breast cancer. She said this pillow has been a God send! It has helped keep her comfortable while sleeping. The material is really soft. Good quality!

    I find that this pillow gives both support and useful pockets. Definitely something I will donate to the breast cancer oncologist office I used to help the next warrior but I do believe that any one having abdominal or any breast surgery could benefit from it’s support. I didn’t use the strap but I think it would be helpful for others.

    I am IN LOVE WITH THIS PILLOW!! I just had a liver transplant on 6/23/21 and this was an absolute life saver!!! I still use this pillow every single day! As soon as I was out of surgery, I had this pillow on! It is the comfiest pillow that I could have imagined having after surgery. It has pockets on both sides- which I used for just about everything since I can only lift 3-4 lbs. (holds phone, glasses, keys, a small lil wallet/money clip, my mask, I even had a book in there at one point! After surgery, I don’t go anywhere in the car without it- it protects the seatbelt and if anyone stops short while driving. I take it to all of my dr appts, anywhere I go!!! I would absolutely 100-% recommend this to everyone!! I got SO MANY COMMENTS AND COMPLIMENTS on the pillow out and at the hospital. With this pillow, I was completely prepared after surgery. I also use it for a cough/sneeze pillow!! Thank you for making this and guys- please buy this! It is not only for a mastectomy!!!!! Love it!!!!!

    My mother had double mastectomy and I purchased this pillow for her to use while coming home in car and during her recovery. It allows you to strap around the back so its nice and tights secure and she very much appreciated that! Well worth it soft material and easy to clean.

    I received this for use after mastectomy. I absolutely love this! I have been using it constantly since my surgery for sleeping (the cut outs for under the arms is perfect for reducing pressure on the incision for my sentinel node biopsy. I also use this when I travel in the car as a barrier between the seatbelt and my incision site. I also have used this when hugging my family members as a barrier to protect my incision site. I would recommend this to anyone undergoing a mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstruction surgeries.

    This pillow came into my life almost a year after my double mastectomy. While I can see how people would find this pillow and others like it to be very helpful after surgery I already found several pillows in my house that do the trick very well. Actually, I like mine better. I have several with varying degrees of structure and density.
