The surgery went well and the pain was not as bad as I thought it might be. I was fortunate to have a nurse who visited me at my home and was able to assist me with my bandages. Since I live alone and couldn't get regular help, she was a life saver! Frozen peas and ibuprofen were my best friends for a while.
My breasts didn't heal very well. My body didn't respond well to the stitches and so I dealt with ongoing infection both post-op and post-revision. The scarring's significant. I'm pleased with the overall shape but I wish they were smaller. I was really looking forward to being able to walk into any store and find a bra that fits, but I still have to buy bras from specialty bra companies.
