I am now 2 days post op had a breast enlargement on Saturday 10th August, I had under the muscle. I was small framed with size 32a bras (which were still too big) I only went up a few sizes to match my frame and I swear I am in sooo much pain!!
I’ve actually cried the past 2 days because I’m in that much pain, please tell me it gets better? The tightness around my chest and boobs and don’t even get me started on how I can’t even lift my arms or move, I struggle opening a door handle, flushing the chain and even trying to pull my trousers up and down. I had my call today from the nurse and she asked me if I can make a cup of tea?! I can’t even lift my own arms without crying in pain never mind a kettle.
I am really starting to wish I never got this done, I have a 2 year old boy who doesn’t understand and keeps trying to get a cuddle and it’s heartbreaking having to tell him I can’t. My boyfriend works away and is going back to work next week and I’m really not sure how I’m going to cope on my own !
You will get better swelling it always going to get worse over the first 72hrs then it will start to subside. I felt pretty good after a week. Driving by day 8 x
Bless you, sorry to hear you’re in so much pain. The first 3-5 days were the hardest for me. I know some people only use their pain meds for a few days but I used them for the first 8 days. I would suggest you keep taking something for the pain until you feel more ch better and get as much rest as you can while you’re BF is around to help, the less you do now the better chance your body has of getting on with the healing process. My PS insisted I do absolutely nothing for the first 2 weeks. Must be so hard with a little one. Sending hugs xx
Thank you girls for your messages and support. I have been doing pretty much nothing but I’ve always been so active I went to the gym every day and was constantly cleaning the house and I know I’m in that much pain because it hasn’t even bothered me that my BF isn’t cleaning to me standards haha.
I can’t wait to be painless and back on my feet but at the moment I’m feeling that sorry for myself I’m thinking will this pain last forever haha xx
This is what worries me as I will also have a 2 year old by the time I get mine done and my pain threshold is low! But this is something I’ve wanted for years, hope you are feeling a bit better, try to keep up with pain relief lovely x
It is hard I’m not going to lie, I feel really emotionally about it all because since he’s been born I’ve done literally everything for him and I’m struggling with not been able to do that for him. He defiantly knows something isn’t right because of the way I am acting and keeps coming over to me and stroking me leg and trying to kiss and cuddle me.
I also have wanted these since I was 16 and finally plucked up the courage now at 24, I can’t wait until the pain subsides, hopefully worth it in the end! xx
Hope today was a better day for you. Xxx
