3 weeks post op today! It has gone by so fast, and yet so slow... Today is a good day :0) my swelling is going down slowly, but I still feel "fat". I accomplished a couple loads of laundry (washing, drying, folding, and putting away)! Dishes are done, and counters are spotless. Now I'm taking a little break before I go on an outing this afternoon.
This whole process has been way more emotional than I planned, SO BE PREPARED!
Healing is a lot of work especially when you're used to being independent and taking care of the house, kids, husband and work!
I'm having a few issues. #1- my scar looks terrible! I have ugly ripples and wrinkles and swelling! Ughhhh... The swelling :0( my PS says that it will smooth out as the swelling goes down, but I'm not sure I believe him. All of the TT pictures I have looked at, and stories I have read, none of which have I seen or heard of this problem. Everyone brags how smooth their scar feels! Maybe in the end I will have a good outcome...
#2- one breast is significantly higher than the other!!! Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!! It's like the fears I had before surgery are reigning true! My right breast seems to be settling nicely into its pocket (looking great actually), but my left one is still "riding high". I sure hope they even out. I have been doing all that I'm told by my PS, so I don't think it's because of anything I've done wrong. This really worries me because my mom had the same thing happen with her first BA!!! It never did drop, and then she ended up with a defective implant on the other side and had them redone a couple years later. I don't wanna do surgery again!
#3- I have a fairly large gap between my boobs. I know that "bras create cleavage" but, I feel like with the size implant I got (500cc high profile silicone) they should be closer than they are! I don't know, maybe I'm being over critical and too much of a perfectionist, but I wanna feel good about my results. I know it's way better than I was, but I'm still struggling.
Has anyone else had these issues? I need friends to help me thru this. Thanks and good luck to all you mommy makeovers!
