Ladies getting ready for surgery, here’s a really great video on how to make your own drain pockets for just $4. Got a sewing machine? You can do it and they will come in handy!
Also, see my checklist for other things that make recovery a bit easier.
Thank you so much for sharing! I have been reading through your blog and am very quickly realizing that we should be FRIENDS! I think we have a similar quirky sense of humor.
You’re welcome. I’m looking forward to seeing more awesome vids. I hope that your appt goes well and you get some good news!
Wish I would have had one or 2 of those. I had drains in for at least a month each surgery.
Yes! Those would’ve come in really handy. I had the giant hemovac pancake drain reservoirs and they didn’t fit in many pockets. I know I’ll have drains again, but hoping that they’re a distant memory for you, Sharon, and you don’t ever need drain pockets. 🙂
Did you ever make them?
No, I haven’t made these, but I think it’s a great idea! I use a lanyard or wear hoodies inside-out and put bulbs in the pockets.
