I stayed overnight in the hospital. There was this one tech named Sheila who was so patient and gentle with me. She showed me how to get out of bed and helped me to the bathroom as well. She made my stay there so pleasant.
Dr. Steely checked on me the next morning and said I was released to go home after urinating successfully. He said there was no rush to leave which was nice. He was right because I didn't leave until around 2pm. I thought they would kick me out much sooner lol.
I barely had any pain at all with the breast lift. I did have pain with the tt but I was prescribed enough pain meds to last me until I felt I didn't need them anymore. I weaned myself off on post op day 11. I had a rough patch of pain and I was emotional thinking why did I do this from day 5-7. But once I got my drain out on day 8 I was feeling much much better. Plus I ordered another compression garment that was much more comfortable than what they sent me home from the hospital in. The more I get up and move around the better my mobility. I'm making sure not to overdue it so I won't have any setbacks or complications.
