Well that's it! Finally had my BA yesterday and I'm now 11 hours post op. Not feeling too bad to be honest. Didn't sleep much last night..felt like jet lag from the anesthesia! Very pleased with the result and keep having a peek down my pj top ! The pain I'm experiencing is more muscle at the moment. It's bare able though with the help of meds

Post op 11 hours

1st day at home

Suffered with burning sensation yesterday afternoon and through the night in my left breast. Pain relief didn't touch it. The tightness that comes and goes I would liken to when your milk comes in after giving birth. Better nights sleep last night. Sleeping almost upright, finding that's helping. Breaststroke are softening slightly and have noticed swelling is stating to reduce. Still feeling lethargic so it's a definite do nothing day today

Day 3 post op

Had really strange intermittent buzzing feeling in my right breast last night. It lasted for an hour or so then disappeared. Much better nights sleep. Finding getting in/out bed or from lying to sitting is pulling around my armpits so have adopted some of the most obscure sliding techniques! Feel much more human today have managed to wash and put on my own sports bra! I have achieved! Still feeling tired though so just sleeping when I need to. Lovingredients the look of my breasts, the pics just don't do them justice. I'm liking the new areola/nipples look too, hoping that stays! As soon as I get a visitor I will post more pics

Day 4 Post op

Return of the sting/burn in left breast yesterday and noticed that because I'm trying to avoid using that arm that the muscle was stiffening and hand clench felt weak. Odd because the right side is recovering at the rate of knots! Felt up to and managed a slow walk out yesterday and felt good for it. Still no bowel movement despite the fluids/Prunes and senokot! Next stop rocket factory! No meds needed through the night, comfortable upright sleep , I feel it helps with gravity, moving about pain and meds free so far today. Breasts feels like they're becoming more me rather than glued on objects that are just in the way. Loving how good they're making me feel

Day 5 post op

So..last night my twins made it through the night with nothing to help either them or me sleep! Bowels have finally been opened, complete meds free for over 24hrs and a short walk in the sunshine to the coffee shop for an americano. Did receive some odd looks though as my hair that hadn't been washed for a week was neatly tucked behind my ears and I was sporting my baggy gym top and 3/4 leggings in 29° of heat...there was no way my unshaven legs were coming out as well as being in public with no makeup !! Who cares though?? I was out and nobody knew that the big grin was because I'm almost back in the land of the living and my top is hiding my precious new bigger/fuller breasts!!
Can't see any physical changes from yesterday so pic. Did notice that when I took my bra off that the "buzzing" in my right breast had made an appearance again. ROM in my left arm is almost as good as the right now a though will need the help of my boyfriend this weekend to shave both armpits as can't quite see how I can do that myself yet. Surgical stockings came off today as I'm more mobile now and am checking breasts lots for any changes positive or negative . At a bit of a paranoid stage thinking something may go wrong with them

Day 6 post op

I've gone into paranoia mode! Things have gone so well that I'm looking for problems now. I've become completely obsessed with looking at my boobs! I'm feeling slightly spaced out today and quite tired so instantly I start thinking there's a problem brewing..I've noticed that my left breast is definitely the slower twin in terms of swelling reduction. I've been for a gentle walk because I'm wondering if being stuck at home is heightening my sensitivity with everything physically and emotionally

8 days post op

Finally managed to have a bath yesterday after a weeks strip washing. Not because I couldn't but because I was scared to. I shook with nerves and shaving my underarms was an experience! Trying to do it when not lifting up too high was like trying to feel your way in the dark. Breasts felt strange just sitting there, they look like they belong but just don't feel like it. Today I went shopping with my OH looking at bikinis for our holiday in 2 weeks ..now that was exciting! I'm so so pleased with my size..I think it suits me perfectly and I don't feel I'm suffering with boob greed but I did think they were going to be a little bigger than they are at the moment ..just hoping I haven't got too much more swelling to lose. My left breast is still quite swollen in comparison to my right. Feeling pretty good today in the grand scheme of things, more energy and movement and so looking forward to enjoying the new me. For the first time ever I look at my body and think I look good!
Latest pic..my left nipple looks slightly turned out but it's not ..thinks it's the angle I took it at

Day 9 post op

Couldn't resist trying and buying a couple of sexy little bralet's to be kept in waiting for my holidays in 2 weeks. Never thought I'd see the day!! Thought they'd tide me over until I'm measured and have an idea of what my bra size will be. All good today, just a bit of sunburn type stinging, more so in my right breast which surprises me as this has been the best behaved of the two.

Day 11 - back to work

1st day back and so tiring. Driving was better than I thought it would be but I did cushion the seat belt strap. My back was aching a bit. Nobody noticed any difference but then they wouldn't..I've been wearing heavily padded bras. Apart from mild sunburn sting my breastson felt ok..Although the minute I walked in through the door my sports bra was off for some relief!! Post op appointment tomorrow

12 days post op review with consultant

Consultant very happy with result. Talked through before and after pics and concerns. He reminded me I'm still healing and despite being back at work to take things easy. Mega happy with result so far. Felt tired all day. Mild burning sensation all day in both breasts relaxing after work and trying to ignore the mounting dust!!

2 weeks and oh so happy

Happy boob day to me and my girls! 2 weeks ago today I want sure I could look at them let alone touch them (minor meltdown as foreign objects had taken residence in my poor excuse for mammary glands). My God I wished I'd done it years ago! Feeling sexy and confident. Went back to work this week but kept it simple and office based. Tired and bit achy at the end of it but loving the new me

Interim bra measuring instore

Decided today that I would pop along to have my new breasts measured to see where I'm at. I have been told I measure at a 34d but to use it as a guide as we all know that bra sizes vary from store to store. Odd thing was that I tried on 34d and 34dd in the same store ,same bra and fitted both nicely, don't quite know what to make of that! Be interested to see if my breasts reduce in size any more. I hope not they are a perfect size as they are now for me. Irritable burning sensation across both breasts all day today. I'm seeing that as a good healing sign . Got back into my pj's and spending the rest of he day resting up and watching tv

18 days post op

I've never been so obsessed with breasts! As soon as I'm home from work sports bra has to come off..the tightness is sore and restrictive. Thinking of switching to bralet's. Burning sensation has become more in the background today. Mild strangeness still to knowing these babies are here to stay! I've been lightly applying bio oil to the scars. Tried sleeping on my side last night. Slight stabbing pain but soon settled...did feel odd though. I put a pillow under my breast to support a little

I month post op holidaying in Turkey

3 weeks post op with the ok from my ps I took my beautiful girls on holiday to Turkey. I was very careful and applied factor 50 for the first few days then dropped to factor 30 with 50 on the scars and nipples. The heat made them feel like they had swollen more so initially but they soon settled down. Was such a great feeling sunbathing top less, I even stood up top less! And to top it i walked along the beach top less!! At 48!!. I'm out of support bras now and into pretty bralet's. My scars are healing so well. Bio oil is the way forward! Lying on my side still feels a bit weird but getting there. My OH is as pleased as I am. He can't believe how natural they look and feel. My confidence had soared. I'm happy beyond belief. I've a couple of people I considered friends who have been less than so, hard to get your head around, my OH thinks jealousy..I hope not. Still experiencing slight sunburn sting and boobs feel heavy in the morning ( holding them for a few minutes helps to regulate) little bit of bruise lie feeling just under left breast (rib area) from what I've read it's normal.
