After recovery will you just want to sleep and feel weak?

Post Op Fatigue
You should certainly be mobile post op but many people feel a little tired and groggy for a few days after anaesthetic and stronger pain medications may affect you this way as well. I recommend that my patients walk around a little- not spend all day in bed- but you will want to have time set aside to relax as well.
All the best
Breast augmentation recovery - what will one do in the first two days?
- Assuming your implants are under the muscle and you do not have Exparel injections for the pain, your first 3 days will be ones of rest, taking pain meds and having pain when you move.
- Usually the pain subsides after 3 days - but it can last longer especially if implants are very large.
- Since every person is different, ask your surgeon if this seems about what to expect for you.
