Surgery on 10-25-16

My experience so far

Hi,My latest update so far has been great,healing nicely,drains Come out on wednesday and I am day 6 post op and just really resting Alot and taking it easy. I go back to see my plastic surgeon Dr. Newman on wednesday. Not much of a appetite yet but each day gets better and I have a nurse that Comes in every morning I got to do the drains as I am alone and all family up north. The 2 sports bras that I bought extra at Walmart are not Good! Do not waste your Money! They ride up on your incisions and pull on the drainage tubes but I just got these extra to have on hand while my compression bra was being washed so I went on line to carefix.com and got another compression bra that I put on the day of my surgery and I just love Them! Very soft comfortable and they have spandex in them so they stretch which helps alot,no pulling on drains either. I hope this helps ladies! Take carep

13 day post- op

Well I am healing great and I feel so much better since the drains came out! Sleeping alot better! Still swollen but each day gets better and the bruising is going away also. I just cannot get over that I have no neck,shoulder or back pain at All and I feel so much better.

15 day post- op

Just had my stitches removed and healing very Nicely! Still need to take it easy for the rest of this week and then I go up to 10 pounds of Lifting! Still swollen alittle and bruising is going away slowly. Bought some extensive repair cream from my plastic surgeons office and massage into breast 2 times a day. Allowed to go into a regular bra in another week and then wear compression bra only at night.
Energy is coming back each day better.

4 weeks post op

Here are my latest pictures !

6 weeks post op

Well ladies feeling great and I went back to work on tuesday the 6th after being off for 6 weeks. I had my check up with my plastic surgeon on 12-5-16 and everything is healing nicely and still alittle swollen but now I am using scar gel from his office to help with the scarring. I had a bathing suit on for the first time since 2002 and took a sister trip to seista keys and I must say it felt great walking on the beach!

3 month post op

Well ladies I had my 3 month post op today and I have been discharged from my wonderful plastic Surgeon! All is good and all swelling is gone and I have my beautiful shape of 38 d cup and perky! No more sleeping in my compression bra at night and I cannot wear a under wire bra for another 3 months and continue to use scarring gel for another 3 months. It has been a wonderful journey with all you ladies and good luck ! I am so glad that I had it done and I feel like a different person.
