Thank u! You're going to be very happy with that size. It's manageable from a clothes standpoint, and healing is easier when you don't go super big. I use InstaCollage for the side by sides. Best of luck on Friday and happy healing!... READ COMMENT

Be careful with the exercise too early. I was told not to get my heart rate elevated for 4-6 weeks. Light walking only @ 3-4 weeks. Back to full workout at 6. Best of luck with continued healing! READ COMMENT
