I want to thank you so so much for sending the pillows out to me so promptly. They arrived at just the right time. They are soft and mold nicely under my arm. I like the heart shape, mostly because I place the "valley" at the top of the heart under my armpit and it fits perfectly. They have been very helpful in my recovery.
The pillow was the perfect gift for me after my mastectomy. It feels great and takes the pressure off my incision. My daughter came to visit me in the hospital and she borrowed it to rest her arm while nursing her baby!
Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful heart pillow. I tucked it under my arm immediately and it felt so good!! Before its arrival, I kept saying I felt as if someone had kicked me in the armpit… probably from all the probing to get those sentinel nodes out. It is also a great prop for keeping my arm at a good height when sitting. Can you explain why they feel so good? Is it because the pilla allows the lymph nodes more space to function? Or perhaps, it is taking the pressure of the arm off the incision site?
Hi there — I am sitting here recovering from my double mastectomy and am IN LOVE with the cushie axillapilla — feels like heaven under my arm. I received a BFFLBag care package from the hospital and it has made such a difference in my recovery!
Dr. Thompson, I went down to the Breast Center and raved about the AxillaPilla. Told them I would not have been comfortable at all post-op without it and that the hospital needs to send patients home with one after each surgery. It is extremely helpful!
