Need advice: Will I have to tell my kids something after BA surgery or can I just say I'm sick for a few days?

I am having surgery in two weeks. Just going from a b Cup to c cup. I was hoping to just tell my 12,10, and 7 year old boys that I was just sick for a couple of days!? After reviews I worry that recovery may be worse than I thought. My husband planned on picking up slack and I was just hoping to rest while they are at school and resume normal activities at night after a day or two?!  Is this realistic or should I tell them something about a procedure!? I don't really want them telling entire neighborhood though?!?  What should I tell them if I have to say something? Could I just say I hurt myself working out or playing tennis after the first few days?! Thanks!

I told my 17 yr old (almost 18 yr. old) daughter and wasn't sure how she would react since she herself is always wearing push up bras! If, for whatever reason, you are embarrassed or don't want to tell them, then don't! They will never know the difference and probably think you are wearing a push up bra/swimsuit. I think this post is probably too late but I would also not plan on lifting so much as a FINGER for 5 days and for 3 weeks not lift more than 5 pounds .. hope you took it easy!! :) P.S. Let us know what you ended up doing/saying!

Thanks so much! You were totally right. The boys have not noticed at all. My plan was/is not to lie to them if they ask or notice. I went from b cup to almost d cup and they have not said anything. :) My husband took care of me for first two days and told kids I was sick. Recovery wasn't too bad. Day 3 - i was feeling much better and just rested while kids in school. Day 4 I felt totally back to normal! Thanks for your advice. It worked out great the way I did it. I'm sure your daughter understood since she was 17. I think I would have been honest with her too, as you were. She'll understand after a kid or two! :). Thanks!

LOL .. yes there was no 'fooling' her so I had to come out with it ha ha. She knew how small I was and going from even my push up to what I have would be noticeable plus the recovery. Glad you are enjoying them!! =)

I would just tell them. It's nothing to be ashamed of. I have a family that is open even with my kids. who are 2 older girls , 9,&11 and younger 6 yr old. They knew i had surgery and why i did it. ANd they were fine with it. Of course they told me i was fine the way i was, but i told them i needed them to support my decision. Thats what we do as a family. I don't know your family dynamics, but honesty is the best policy and we teach our kids not to lie correct? i think they are old enough to understand. AT least this way they can help u out if you need them.

If your augmentation has anything to do with losing volume during pregnancy I would just tell them it's reconstructive. :0)
