21 years of these awful implants -hard and painful...

21 years of these awful implants -hard and painful so after a health scare (mammagram showed a mass -ultimately, everything okay), I had them removed.
My PS indicated my CC was close to a 3. April 12 was the day. PS did not want to do a lift.
It was tough since apparently, the right implant had ruptured even though the mammagram said it was okay! I'm so happy they were removed since before any health issues, I was o embarrassed to hug people because of my hard implants.
It now has been 8 days. Must say, the second day was the worse for me but after that, things get so much better. Also, I thought I would be way flatter and even though I haven't gained any weight (pre-implants) my breast are no larger. The PS indicated it's very common to have breast change. Now, the fluff fairy may add a wee bit more, I will be happy.
18 days post explant and it has been an experience...

Can sleep, at times, on my side but still aware of my breasts -quite sensitive still. Is this normal?
9 weeks since explant

So, when I first started out, my breast were quite "full", then, they seem to shrink ("noooooo....) but lately, I notice they seem to be gaining more fullness. In addition, my left was quite smaller now it seems to be "catching up". I don't know if they will shrink again. Is that it or will the "fluff fairy" make a visit?
My scars are healing nicely and in a slightly padded bra, I'm very comfortable and no one seems to notice my smaller size. I just wish I did the explant sooner. I love hugging -- who knew???
Even though things are going great, I do note that if I hit my breast by accident, still tender. Is this normal?
14 weeks and it's all good....

I am healing nicely. No longer need to wear 2 sports bra to work-out -no longer super-tender. Enjoying wearing t-shirts and tank tops. My "go-to" bra is the Genie bra -slight lift and slight padding. So comfortable.
I think some fluffing is happening? Not sure but no longer as obsessed. My left was much smaller for a while but it's catching up...
Anyone thinking of this surgery, it's so nice to exercise and hug without hard fake rocks.
