Hi I’m really worried I’m booked to have ba on the 23rd July but I’m starting to panic about how long it will be till I would be able to do things for my little boy he is 17 months and such a mummy’s boy. Anyone who’s been through this please share some advice xxx
I’m in the same position I have a 1 year old who’s attached to my hip 🙂 .. I think you will need help for about a week if your having unders it will be a little more painful and difficult x
Hi girls I’m 5 weeks PO had 450 unders and I have a 11 month old and a 7 year old, I’d say you need total help for at least a week but very very limited lifting for a good few weeks, they say to wait 6 weeks for healing .. I’ve just started lifting her more now, day 3 PO was by far the worst for me but apart from that I felt great If you need to know anything else just ask xx
I wont lie it will be difficult. I have a 7 and 4 year old and the hardest thing was not been able to cuddle them properly .
I have a 7yo also but she’s very independent but my 17 month is very clingy with me… I’ve got help for the 1st week sorted but sure if need more will be able to. I’m going to have overs but not seen surgeon yet so not spoke bout size but am an a cup now and would like to be a big c or d xxx
I’m in the same boat got a 10 6 and 9 month yr old dreading the recovery but hoping all my family pull through and help
I had unders 13 days ago. The first week u wil defo need help. Day 2 was agony for me. My little girls is 15months & accidently smacked my purse full of change off my chest. Actually took my breathe away!! The first 3 days were hard but after that i done everything for her. Now im hardly in any pain at all. Unders are worse aswel apparantly so u should be ok after a few days depending on ur pain threshold. Xx
I had unders, I have a 2 year old and a 4 month old. I really struggled and couldn’t do a thing for myself for the 1st week. The 2nd week I was a lot better but still couldn’t lift either of them. I’d say you deffinately need help for the first week and to still be as careful as you can after that. But if you have overs I think it’s less painful and a quicker recovery x
I didnt have any help, was a struggle but i managed.
I’m having mine done tomorrow and I have 2.5 year old twin girls I’m dreading it!!!
I had mine done on Tuesday and I have 2 older children 6 and 7 and an 18month old little girl. I feel awful that I can’t pick her up she has stayed at her nanans house since I have had it done because I feel shit and I can’t do anything with her anyway. I keep going round to spend time with her but I’m terrified of getting hurt xxx
I got a 21month old and a 4month old got my op on 1st june got help for he first 2weeks arranged but worried i wont be able to cuddle them. Also anyone know how long till you can drive
Hi ladies also in the same boat here 😀 I have a mummy’s boy aged 2 and being able to care for him is the only thing that is worrying me :/ I kind of feel selfish if I go through with it cos I’ve heard I not be able to lift/ cuddle properly for at least a week but I’ve always been unhappy with my breasts and even more so now :(.Also I’m sure he will defo not be my last 😀 xxx
Hope you don’t mind the add Abbie.We have more or less the same stats 🙂 I was told I can only have 275cc :/ would love to follow your story :).hope your happy and healing well :)x
hi ladies im after some help with the same question, im a mummy and im dying for a ba, but i am really worried about recovery, i dont have any family to help, and have a 3month old and 2year old, i am thinking of waiting until my little one is 9months (as she was 3months early and still in and out the hospital), and my husband will book two weeks off work were i wont do anything at all, do you think ill be ok on my own with them for the third week? i would try to avoid lifting them as much as possible. be great to hear off someone whos done it. thanks in advance x
I’m 1day post op and have 6 month old twins, a 22 month old and a 5 year old. Needing a lot of help right now x
I have a 4 year old and im 9 days post op I had unders and it was extremely painful for the first week day 3 was by far the worst but starting to feel more myself now and getting around after the first week you’ll defo need somebody to stay with you for the first 3 days xx
I’m also thinking of the same! Have my first consultation later on this evening and was wondering what the recovery will be like. I have a 3 year old who’s very independent and won’t need my help and will actually be able to help with my 9 month old. Only problem is she obvs won’t be able to get her in and out of the cot. So has anyone actually managed to lift their 9 month old or so baby? My partner is self employed so arranging time off is difficult as he will lose out on money. And anyone else than can help are all employed full time and I definitely wouldn’t even ask for them to take time off. I’m back at work from maternity leave end of Feb so hoping I could maybe get it done this month!
Anyone know what the nearest available dates where when you booked? X
