I am 2 weeks post-op from a Breast Reduction and I have to say I has not been a bad experience. I took pain meds for only a day and a half and then there was mild discomfort and some itching. The itching was relieved with some cocoa butter.

One of the breast still has swelling and bruising but I love the way I look already! Completely worth every penny and minor discomfort!

I had a breast reduction 2 wks ago and my right breast has bluest bruising and feels tight and solid. The left breast felt this way to begin with but now feels soft and natural. Should I be concerned about the swollen bruised breast. I have been taking Bromelain, is there anything I can do to relieve the rt breast?

I took Arnica and used cold compress's after my reduction. Mine were very tight and very swollen. I unfortunatly had infection issues with my stitches. I had the same after my hysterectomy. I would do it all over again, I can stand up straight now and have no more back or neck pain.
