I'm having both surgeries done together. I have no fears about the surgery only excitement and a feeling of "I just can't wait" .im new to this site but think it a fantastic way of helping each other and giving support where needed. I have always been shy and so embarrassed with large breasts that I don't feel so much of an oddity sharing with all of you.

Hi everyone,this is an update at 5 weeks tomorrow. My surgery for both ops went really well...possible better than I feared. I came through the anethsetic well and felt little pain. I stayed in hospital for 2 nights and had my 4 drains removed just before leaving and I was surprised how well I felt.At 4days into recovery my tummy started to swell ....and swell! I went to get my 7day check up with my ps nurse and she suspected a small seroma forming. 3 days later I was back in hospital , it had opened the wound and was draining down my legs. Hospital kept me in for 4days dressing it 4 times a day until I could go home. I'm now at the stage where I have it dressed everyday at my own Dr. Surgery and once with my ps nurse in the hospital and I have seen my surgeon every week since. Today the seroma is very small and my dressings are minimal but I'm still swollen especially on one side.I have felt very well throughout all of this and have had loads of energy. As everyone says swelling is ok in the morning but as the day goes on it gets tight and itchy. Today I go for another dressing and it maybe that I'll be able to miss a day in between from now on. I have a Xmas dinner this Friday and I can't wear the dress I was hoping to wear because of the swelling but will wear another that hides my swollen tummy more. Thanks for listening x
