I am almost at the 2 week mark, the compression garment they gave me is already showing signs of wear and I have to wear this for another 4 weeks. Do you recommend getting a different one? If so, which one? Stage 2? Brief? Spanx? Any help would be appreciated!! :)

Surgeons' may recommend different protocols for garment wear.. This may depend on the technique utilized for the procedure. Many will alter the regiment depending on the drain output as well. Discuss your plans with the surgeon.
