Day 6 after mini tt, mr and new implants... what was I thinking

Hi everyone!  So I was totally unprepared for this.  I don't know what I was thinking.  I am pain free (thank God) and swelling so far isn't so bad.  I refuse to weigh myself.  I have no appetite. And had a horrific bout with constipation yesterday.  I guess my question is/are how long will I feel energy less? I get up and walk. No pain in doing so but tired.  I go back to work in a week and am stressing about it.  I have a wedding in a month and scared I won't fit in anything.  I did take off my compression garment to shower and it felt so alien.  Its like I need it on.  I hate it though.  Also am feeling blue.  Have no idea why.  What is my problem? Just some background info I was 5'9 125lbs but had loose skin and stretch marks.  I now think i'm vein for doing this.  Help!

I'm 15 days PO and am more swollen today than I've been. I also saw the nurse today and she decided to drain me on one side. 30cc's of clear fluid... yuck! That did not feel good. Still no real pain and am back to work but really tired at the end of the day and of course... swollen.

Give it another week! The first week was so much harder than the second. I'm not at 100% yet, but with even being sick, I'm able to do household chores and such now. I also had a moment around day 5 post op when I felt down, but give it time and you'll be happy you did this for yourself! I know I am!

I'm sorry you're feeling blue. This is a huge recovery and it's normal for you to still feel pretty beat up and tired at this point. From what I've heard, great changes should come in the next week or two as far as healing. It's also common to feel very strange without your compression garment at first.

I'm glad you're pain free! That's a plus. Virtual hugs. This is just kind of the tough-it-out phase. Try to keep your eyes on the prize. I think you'll be glad you did this.
