Had BR Feb 24/12 and did not require no pains meds - drains out 3 days after - took shower 3 days after - very sore and bruised but overall very happy :) I smoke about 12 cigs a day and was up front with surgeon. Went fr 38DD to 38C. I live in NB Canada and as I have had bad back for years the Govt paid for the BR. Slept in lazy boy for 2 nights and now sleeping in bed - dislike sleeping on back but for now... boobs look like they went thru train wreck but applying bio-oil 2x day.

Been a bit more sore - advised by my surgeon to really massage bio-oil into sutures and nipples and to apply more and more pressure each day to avoid thick scarring.

Now 3 weeks since surgery - still sore and bruised but improvements every day. Most sore areas are where drains were and of course area of stitches - doctor did vertical only. Switched to vitamin e cream and apply 3-4 times a day. Look forward to sleeping on my sides again - someday :)

No regrets :)

Going on week 4. Had a set back - hit a very bumpy road and caused breasts to be ++ sore for a day or two. Still a bit bruised. Very sore where drains were - switched bra style but not much relief - is this normal? Vitamin E cream helping a lot as far as comfort to breasts. Wish the recovery would speed up faster than what it is - never expected that I would feel this sore still.

I am getting there ! Returned to work 2 weeks ago - I drive alot for a living so the long drives (specifically bumpy roads) are still a bit irritating - sore at the end of the day but overall recovering very well. Able to sleep on my sides and am able to carry on most household activites. Main thing - no more back issues ! I wish I had done this a long time ago :) Highly recommend this surgery !

Got put on cancellation list so instead of waiting a year it took less than 6 months.
