So the big day was yesterday December 5th. I had a...
When I woke up from surgery I was in way more pain than I was expecting and I think I cried most if not all the way home and I was regretting my decision. When I got home and got into bed and was able to take a percocet I felt a million times better. I tool a valium 3 hours after the percocet (which does nothing for pain and was hurting really bad about an hour later but had to tough it out for two more hours when it was time to take the percocet again. I took 2 percocet the next time and 2 more 4 hours later then I figured out if I take 2 percocet then 1 valium 3 hours later then 2 more percocet 3 hours later its enough to stay on top of the pain.
Today December 6th is my first day after surgery and I'm feeling a bit better already. I was able to take off the tightly wrapped ace bandage and I think I got used to it being on and actually preferred it that way even though at first it was the most uncomfortable thing and made it feel like I couldn't breath. I was also able to unhook my bra and see how the new girls look, I was pleasantly surprised so far.
Tomorrow is my first post op appointment so I'm crossing my fingers everything goes good.Updated on 7 Dec 2011:Just got back from my first post op appointment and so far so good. I'm supposed to start massaging them now as well as take 2000iu of vitamin E a day to help with the scar formation around the implant. They feel pretty swollen and tight right now so hopefully that subsides soon. I will try and post some pics soon.Updated on 8 Dec 2011:Day 3 post op, feeling better everyday. I was able to take a shower today. Having my bra off wasn't the most comfortable thing. I have been massaging like I'm supposed to. Both breasts are still swollen. They seem better after I massage them though. Not much pain today, incisions are a bit sore is all. I will post some pictures when I figure out how, I may not be able to do it on my phone so I will try on the computer later.Updated on 9 Dec 2011:Day 4 post op. Not much change from yesterday still taking 1 percocet every 6 hours but that's an improvement from day 1 taking 2 every 6 hours and valium in between. My chest is really tight still, I find myself hunching in on myself to relieve the stretched feeling. Still liking my results, wish swelling didn't last so long. I'm ready for the final results.Updated on 21 Dec 2011:Went for my 2 week post op on the 19th and got some of my stitches out. So far so good, they are dropping into place and I'm happy with the size I tried on bras and fit into a 34D. One more week and I can take off the medical tape over the incisions. The swelling is mostly gone and there is no more tight feeling.
