Lateral chest wall swelling over the drain port is often the area showing the first signs of swelling. This pad addresses swelling that extends into the armpit and directs fluid toward functional alternate pathways. Pad fits into most mastectomy or standard bras, and works very well with the Bellisse Compressure Bra. Outer fabric is Polartec Power Dry in buff color.
NOTE: This item is not returnable once worn. Ships in approximately 1 week

Until I received the JoViPak Serratus Anterior Pad w/ Axilla Pad in the mail, I used a folded hand towel. Using the JoViPack Pad was much more comfortable. In addition to reducing the pain and swelling along the side of my ribs, it also reduced the swelling in my armpit. I wear it backwards to give me more compression on my back/ shoulder blade.
