I am a recently divorced 33 year old and have two young children (ages 3 and 5.) I am scheduled for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation on June 28th. My sister is going to help me with the kids the first week but I'll be on my own after that. My boyfriend will be around but he has to work. He has taken two days off work to help me out but what's involved for him? Will I be able to clean my own drains that first day? How long until I get up on my own or drive?

Here are some great answers from some RealSelf doctors. Take care with the heavy lifting. You should ask your surgeon about cleaning the drains and you will probably need help for your first few showers post-op. Good luck and please keep us updated on how it goes!
