Hi ... I am exactly 2 months post op, Breast Augmentation., and I am 33 years old. I had my operation on the 22.09.2012, actually 2 days before my period would start. My period also came on the 24.09.2012 as expected. Next month my period came on the 26.10.2012, 5 days too late. Now is the 26.11.2012 and my period still hasn't come.It's already 5 days late. I never had late periods before.My cycle is always 24-29 days. This is really strange, 2 months in a row. Is this normal due to the surgery?

Major surgery, like breast augmentation, can throw off menstrual cycle.
It is not uncommon for menstrual periods to be altered after surgery. There are certainly other reasons but my guess is that you will return to your normal cycle soon.
