This is the best way to ice after surgery. Used one for my shoulder 20 years ago. And was so pleased I didn't hesitate to order one for me knee surgery.
The pad wasn't as cold as I expected and was vey hard to secure on my knee. I left it on for a couple of hours but still didn't feel right. Checked the directions and I was doing everything right. I ended up switching to the hospital provided ice pack. I received the order on Feb. 17th and surgery was the 20th so I didn't get to use it until the 22nd when I was home. Now I see the timeline for return is only 14 days soI'm worried I won't be able to get it pack up and returned in time. I know it has worked really well for others but doesn't seem to work for me.
Works very well for post op ice applications, keeps cold on container for 24 hours. Arrived quickly. We had a knee one from my daughter’s previous knee surgery, got the foot one to fit better.
Good price and shipped quickly. Since I received been using it a few times a day to alleviate swelling in my knee and ankle. The ankle cuff works great for achilles tendon issues. I feel like the knee cuff could allow for more ice around the knee. But overall great product.
If you're going to have shoulder surgery... GET one! It is AMAZING! It helps when nothing else will.
