Hey guys, so I am new to this site but have found...
Forgot to add my "wish" pics!
The nurse advised me to not pick up any other bras then the one they give me post-op for about a week. So I may just wait to go ahead and pick up some comfortable sports bras or compression bras this week so I can wear them 1 week post-op. Any suggestions for comfortable 'bras' post-op? Something not too expensive because I know I will be getting all new bras when I drop and fluff!
I also went ahead and ordered some Arnica Montana to take after my surgery! Working the four days before my surgery so I could have the whole week off. I'll be sleepy, but I have movies downloaded, books to read, and Netflix :) Thank you everyone for your kind words and suggestions! Looking forward to updating everyone come surgery day :)!
Day 1 Post-op
I was in and out all day yesterday and in a decent amount of pain. I've been taking Percocet every 4-5 hours as needed, and it takes the edge off, but truthfully I'm still hurting. I also have been taking Arnica tablets, but can't imagine that has helped yet. I slept about 4 whole hours last night so I'm a little out of it today too. Sleeping on your back upright is no joke! Something I read a lot about, but really couldn't anticipate the feeling myself was how tight my skin was going to be. That's been the most uncomfortable part so far. That, and my upper back is killing me from going under my pec muscle with the implants so I'm laying on a heating pad.
I have my post-op day 1 appointment today and get to see the new additions!!! Hoping I can get some rest today and some more pain relief as the day goes on. I'll update in the next few days!!
After I saw the doctor!
Day 3 post op
Finished my antibiotic and have been able to take my pain pill every 6-7 hours now without any problems.
Boobies are still swollen and high! I've been icing on and off today and was able to get out of the house for lunch :) Pain and tightness are finally under control, so I'm very excited for the next few weeks!
2 weeks and feeling great!
Finally able to workout next Monday, I'm so antsy to start running and lifting again! My body has gotten fluffy from not working out and kind of eating whatever I want so I'm looking forward to getting into great shape and having the girls look even more amazing.
Currently wearing comfortable bras with no under wire, supportive bralette-type bras from Target and I love them!
Dr. Schmidt is phenomenal. So professional with great bedside manner. He answered all of my questions before I even asked them in the consultation. He has always been on time with appointments, and the staff that work with him in the facility are fantastic. Always smiling, asking how to help, and very knowledgeable. Surgery day was a breeze. OR nurses were so sweet and friendly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Schmidt called me personally the night of surgery to see how I was doing. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my choice to get my breast augmentation done by Dr. Schmidt. 10/10, would highly recommend!
