What do you think of when you hear the word "healing?" It is a term that has countless positive connotations throughout our society. To be healed is to be cured of some pain, illness, or problem. To be healed is to feel strong and whole again. To be healed is to place a bandage over the wounds of the mind and the body--a bandage which, though it may work slowly and steadily, has the power to repair what has been broken. Of course, "healing" also has more literal meanings, the definitions that conjure up images of white lab coats, bottles of antibiotics, and glimmering medical utensils. However, no matter what comes to mind when you think about healing, the truth is that healing of all kinds can often use a helping hand.

It sounds so simple--but, in reality, "getting better" is actually a pretty big concept to focus on, especially after cardiac surgery. Rehabilitation requires lifestyle changes. It requires determination. It requires work. In order to recover from cardiac surgery, you often have to focus on things that we've all spent a lifetime taking for granted, like breathing, moving, eating, and sleeping. Even though "all you need to focus on is getting better," there's still a lot to do--but with a surgical support garment like a Postoperative Bra, you can mark a few things off the list.
