Period/Menstrual Cycle while using Faja Compression Garment

Postby Pixie2dust2 » Tue Feb 28, 2017 5:17 pm

My period is set to start the day before my abdominal liposuction and is always right on time. I don't take any birth control so I can't use that to skip my period. My periods are extremely extremely heavy. I always have to use the most absorbent Tampons and a pad. I was told during surgery I can't wear a tampon and they will put a pad over me. My concern is after surgery. I will be in a Faja style compression garment that goes from under my breasts to my thighs. I am also not supposed to take it off till my post op appointment which is 3 days after surgery. How do I handle my very heavy period in this garment? And how do I ensure I do not get blood on the garment? I do NOT want to go back into the surgeon's office for the postop appt and have the garment be dirty, that would be extremely embarrassing. Thanks.
