Back story: I am a 22 year old, 5'5" and 105 lbs I naturally had a 32d growing up and then had my beautiful son I got up to a 30 DDD, yikes! Through losing baby weight and geting back in shape, I have lost my breast fullness. We wanted to shoot for a full C!

I got my BA today and I will say I am VERY sore. Was anyone else really sore the first? I can barely get out of bed, or raise my arms. I am have been naping all day, off and on.

Got to my doctors office at 7:30, out of there by 10! We did 325, moderate plus profile, silicone. Any info about getting through these first few days, let me know! Thanks

Just had my first post op! She said that they are looking really good and healing well. I am now in a surgical bra and still pretty sore. I have noticed that my left side is much more sore then the other side (she said she had to "scrap" to make room"

still happy, just sore :)

Today has been a rough day! I got out of the wrap yesterday and went shopping today. I got very swollen on my left side and a little bit on my right.

Im supposed to fly to Arizona tomorrow for vacation, but my doctor wants me to wait unti Monday to see if with rest, ice and compression if the swelling will go down.

Has anyone else had issues with swelling or anything? Im not sore, but definately swollen.

Hi I'm having my pre-op with Dr. McMillan on May 6th. Did you get exactly what you asked for as far as size? At your pre-op did you get to try on sizers? Did you decide on a few different cc's before surgery, or did you just let her decide? I'm a little nervous about not knowing the cc amount... Thank you

How are you feeling today? Did you go on your trip? One side might be swollen for at least 2 weeks...and take a full 3 months to settle in. Is the icing working? Take care!

Congrats on your twins! I had mine done yesterday and sore seem to be the norm! Pain meds and Vit C to help you heal will be your BFF for the next few days! Good luck and looking forward to your updates!

Congratulations! Yes, the soreness you are experiencing is very typical. Many women say they "over did it" the minute they felt better, and then were painfully exhausted the next take it easy while your body is healing! Some photos would be great if you're comfortable posting them!
