Thoughtful Gifts for After Surgery

Okay, so you’ve done the worst.  You’ve injured yourself right before the holidays hit.  While you will have to make some changes to the way you celebrate this year, there is no reason to be in complete despair.  In fact, there are a number of products on the market that can really help you get through the recovery process.  And this Thanksgiving, you should be thankful for their help! Here are just a few recovery products to remember as you think about what you are thankful for.

Cast Toe Warmer

Thanksgiving is notoriously chilly and your toes would be freezing if it weren’t for the cast toe warmer.  This thick, fleece toe warmer fits over your toes like a slipper and attaches around the back of your cast or boot with Velcro.  It’s washable, easy to put on and take off, and best of all, it’s cozy warm.  Be thankful that both your feet can stay dry and warm with the help of the comfy cozy cast toe warmer.

Shower Benches

Have you ever tried to shower on one leg?  Until you were injured, you never had to.  Well, it’s tiring and it’s a second accident just waiting to happen.  If you want to enjoy your time in the shower without worrying about toppling over, you need to be thankful for the invention of the shower bench.  With this product, you can sit and enjoy your shower without worrying about getting off balance.

Alternatives to Crutches

Can you imagine going through your whole recover process on crutches?  It’s hard to get anywhere and enjoy anything.  With one of the devices that are considered alternatives to crutches, life seems possible yet again.  You can choose between the Hands Free Crutch, the knee scooter and see which device works best for your lifestyle and needs.  Whatever you choose, you will be able to resume your normal life and get around without so much struggling.

Cast Cooler

Even during the cooler months, things get hot and itchy beneath your cast.  In the past, injured people would stick a wire hanger down the edge of the cast to scratch.  This is certainly not advised and today, there is the cast cooler to help with the issue in a much more safe manner.  The cast cooler attaches to your vacuum and sucks the air from beneath the cast.  It helps with cast smells, moisture build up, too much heat, and just that overall fresh feeling.


First and foremost, you should be thankful for your family and friends and all of the love you have in your life.  But with your injury lurking in your mind, it’s certainly okay to write a couple of these products down on your “Things to be Thankful for” list.
