Protect the integrity of your sternal closure after surgery with Heart Hugger Sternum Support Harness - a simple, on demand, patient-operated harness that provides full-time wound stability, sternal support, pain management, and fewer wound complications.
Hi y'all - I'm excited to have found this site and this community! I am scheduled to have surgery (aortic root and ascending aorta aneurysm repair - not sure of specific surgery yet) at Cleveland Clinic on 5/12. We are traveling from Chicago to Cleveland and plan to be there a few days before and for 1 month after surgery in a rental home. Would love to know what items people found helpful during recovery (I've already ordered a wedge pillow, button-front shirts and a few other things but would love to make sure that the home is ready to go for when I am discharged - God willing!) Any and all advice appreciated. Thank you!
