I had my surgery yesterday, it was successful! I'm sore and tight but meds are keeping pain in control. I got 500cc underarm saline behind the muscle. Today sore but able to move around. Little bleeding under left arm I think I been moving too much. Been icing my breast and I have little pain. Iluvit
Congratulations on your surgery! Lots of rest and relaxation coming your way, take it easy and enjoy being taken care of. Wishing you a quick and speedy recovery.

Congratulations! Do you have any help...especially with your children while you're recovering? You might enjoy recovering with some other women in a forum who also recently had a breast aug this June 2014. Keep us posted as you continue to heal!

day 4

Feeling up been on Tylenol only to stay ahead of pain but only tool pain meds 3 times yesterday. So feeling fine. Breast still swollen, however I'm starting yo get feeling back into them. They've been a little numb. Still wear breast strap. I also wear sports bar due to guests coming over.

day 6

Been feeling OK lately occasionally take pain meds maybe 1x day. Some bruising I've noticed day 4 set in. Each day it seems to get more feeling in it. Stitches taken out on day 5. One scar is worse than the other, but the better one is fading pretty fast. Stitches being removed hurt in the arm with the worse scar. Because I moved that arm too much day one.
Wow! You look amazing already! I had 475ccs, saline, under the muscle, incision in breast fold on the 27th and I'm still riding high and tight.

I've been constantly icing them and wearing the breast wrap. Good luck on your recovery!

Thanks! My PS doesn't do breast wraps! Maybe I should consider buying one. It obviously work wonders :-)
