Post op day 5 wow I can't believe that it's done....

Post op day 5 wow I can't believe that it's done. First day I stayed in bed with loads of pillows lol. I had two pain pumps so I didnt need any pills at that time. I got up to pee and walked around my bed in my room with my wonderful husbands help then back in bed did that for the first two days then my ass started to kill me so came downstairs on the recliner let me tell you it was better. Day 3 my husband took out my pain pumps the Dr. showed him how to do it and he did a great job I didnt feel a thing. My friend came to visit me that day and it was a warm beautiful day so we sat out back and we got up and walked around and sat and just enjoyed the day I was feeling good. Today I'm feeling great boobs are high and big and I feel them moving and I think it does feel like when your milk comes in and the baby is ready to eat... I had a BM not fun stool softener omg I want to take the whole bottle wow but anyway I go to the doctors tomorrow I'll post something then. I hope everyone is doing good.


YEA! how nice to be able to go outside. (I had mine done mid winter) So glad you getting up and around and be sure you give your hubby lots of hugs.. they arent use to us being down like this
