I am 4 days out!! Thursday is the big day. Trans axillary, 450cc saline is what we decided at my post op. I'm currently a 34B and expecting to be around a D. I've been watching videos so I know what to expect on the day of. Tried looking for low suppression sports bras today but they were all ugly! :( Hopefully I can wear pretty bras sooner rather than later.
I hope your surgery went great today and you are resting comfortably!! :-)

Thank you so much!! I was so nervous! I'm home and relaxing comfortably. I haven't been able to eat yet because I'm still nauseas. Crackers are the only thing I can keep down. Oh...I ended up finding a couple at WalMart. :) thank you!!

Hematoma drainage, 4 days post op.

BA recovery was going just fine. On the 4th night I started getting a terrible pain in my left breast. It felt like a muscle cramp that would not stop tightening. It was so swollen, I could see my muscle through my skin. I called my surgeon and he told me he'd want to see me the following morning. I woke up with a horrible black and purple bruise covering part of my upper left breast and going up to my armpit, which is where I had my incision. I was soooo bummed!!!! Dr took one look and said it was a hematoma so he had me return the following day to drain it. The procedure went well, I woke up from it better than I did from the BA. I'm not as nauseous. My breast already looks so much better and I'm so excited about that! Dr said he removed 250cc of old blood which seems like a lot to me considering I had 460cc in that breast. I have a stupid drain I will be wearing for the next week and will have to continue to drain, but I'm thrilled I'm ok and I'll be back on the road to recovery in no time!
How are you feeling?? Do you still have the drain? I'm so sorry to hear that you had to go through all if that!!

I'm feeling better now. PS took the drain out last Friday. It was absolutely the worst experience and I'm sooooo glad it's gone! I'll upload a pic of my little baggie lol. Thank you, dear! Hoping I have a smooth recovery from here on out.

Hematoma + Drain = No Fun

Here's the pic of my little drain I had to keep in for about a week after the drainage procedure. Removing it was a little painful. So glad I'm done with this dreaded thing!
I hope you're feeling better but you look great! How do you like the saline? I'm getting 450 saline implant march 28 and I'm getting nervous from hearing that they won't look and feel natural. How do you like the look and feel?

Hi!! I feel great now, thanks! I love the saline! I had the same fears/worries you do; however, I'm pleased with my choice! They look great (I'll upload a pic for you) and they feel soft. It's only been 5 weeks so they haven't dropped completely but they're def soft and looking more and more natural daily. You're gonna love them!! I'm excited for you! :-)
