Car seatbelt support. After a mastectomy, lumpectomy or biopsy, the chest area can be very sensitive. The pillow can be placed between the safety belt and surgical site to provide comfort and protection during bumpy car rides home from the hospital.
Underarm pillow. Underarm incisions for lymph node removals and biopsies can be painful. The heart shape stays in place under the arm and can provide pain relief to a sore shoulder, chest and/or arm. Radiation treatment can create tenderness and discomfort as well, and the pillow can protect against accidental bumps.
Sleeping at night. Many have difficulty sleeping at night post-surgery. The pillow can be placed under the arm to provide padding and facilitate side sleeping. Stomach sleepers can use the pillow after recovery to elevate an arm or help with position changes.
Arm rest. It can be helpful to take the pillow to chemotherapy appointments. The pillow can be placed under the arm for comfort during long infusion sessions and relieve shoulder tension.
Lymphedema support. Patients who are experiencing the effects of lymphedema may find relief from arm swelling and tenderness using their Angel Pillow. After a long day, the pillow can provide a comfortable way to prop the arm when it gets tired.
Back or neck pillow. A nice way to find comfort during long chemotherapy infusions, traveling or while relaxing at home.
