Today is one week post op from having a mini arm...
My breast look great. My nipples are a little puffy. I don't know if they are just swollen or what, but I need to ask the doctor about that.
I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics that they gave me, but I called the doctor and they called in new ones for me. I have red blotches like a rash on me and around my incisions under my arms. It kinda hurts, but not too bad. I had my drains out yesterday. My right one didn't hurt much, but the left one hurt really bad. I feel lots better without the drains.
The day after surgery the doctor removed the bandages and it hurt bad. I was crying and asked to sit down and some water and the doctor immediately got me some water and let me sit.
Feel free to ask any questions

Two weeks and four days post op
I'm driving now, but still can't raise my arms over my head without it feeling like it's stretching under my arms.
I'm not taking pain pills anymore, just ibruprofen if I feel like I need it. Wearing this bra for 24/7 is driving me nuts. I can stop wearing it for 24/7 after two months, so that will be December 17 and I'm counting down.
The doctor and his staff are amazing. Every time I email them a questions, Elisa emails me back almost immediately every time. She is wonderful.
Dr. Horndeski is very intelligent and caring. His staff and assistant are wonderful. I highly recommend going to him. They answer questions immediately.
