I know alot of you live with hot water bottles attached to you everyday like me.
I seen my consultant the other day and when he was examining my stomach he said to me that I use a hot water bottle alot and I said I hadn't used it since the day before and how did he know, he said I've got marks on my stomach from using it to much.
I've never even noticed them before but they are like red blood line marks.
Apparently one day they won't ever go, luckily my consultant told me about this or I would just keep using my hot water bottle daily . He advised me to buy a electric head pad, it cost about 20 pound and attaches to yours stomach and back like a belt. It's not come yet but hopefully it will work as well as the hot water bottle does.
Just thought I would warn you all about it. If you do use a hot water bottle keep it covered with a towel or cover at all times. We all have enough marks on our stomachs from ops and we don't want anymore
