    I had my surgery on 14th August and am seriously regretting getting it done i cant stop crying. I’ve not had much pain in my boobs its more my back and feeling crap in general. I don’t know if its normal to feel like this but i honestly feel like I’ve made a massive mistake, i feel like a completely different person and just want to be back to myself.

    I’m also a major worrier and can’t stop thinking about all the things that could still go wrong, my mind is just consumed with negative thoughts and regrets. Has anybody else felt this way and is this normal? Its something I’ve wanted to do for so long and just never expected to feel this way afterwards x

    Honestly, I felt exactly the same. I’m 10 days PO now and it’s only in the last 2 days I’ve started to feel ok,
    I felt really down, my mood was so low, all I could think was why have I done this to myself!
    I was also the same in regards to thinking about what could go wrong, I thought my incisions were infected as they were painful, but I had a dressings change yesterday and they’ve healed so well, so don’t be worried when feeling pains and aches – it’s completely normal!
    Your body has been through a massive operation, and it will take time to recover. Don’t compare yourself to people on the forum that were up and about in a day or 2 as I did this and thought there must be something wrong with me as I felt so rubbish!
    Give yourself a week and you will feel completely different and it will be worth the pain and the money spent!
    Hope this reassures you a little bit! Xx

    Hi lovely,
    I posted the exact same thing on here days ago! I was 2-3 days post op and had cried every day all day I was in a lot of pain and discomfort and said if someone give me the option to get them out I would have to take the pain away. I am now 1 week 1 day post op and feeling much better I did by day 5! It does get better although at the time you think it won’t because I was thinking the same! I seen my nurse yesterday to get my dressings cleaned and she also said she’s found the anesthetic has made loads of women very emotional and upset so just added to the side affects!
    I honestly cannot sympathies with you enough because I know exactly how it feels, did you get under the muscle too? Because I did and it’s meant to be the worst pain but the first 4 days are the worst once past them it’s easy! I’ve just been trying to move around abit more daily because like you my back was killing also and I thought it was because of been sat propped up all day & night.

    It’s worth it in the end ! xxx

    Hi girls this has really reassured me knowing that I’m not the only person to feel like this thank you, I think the fact that I can’t do much for myself is playing a massive part in me feeling so down as I’m used to being so independent, it just feels like the pain and discomfort is never going to end!
    Yeah Georgia I had under the muscle also and was warned beforehand that this could be more painful than overs but I guess I just wasn’t prepared for exactly how I would feel!

    I’m feeling slightly better today after managing to get a bit more sleep last night so fingers crossed it can only get better from here! xxx

    Glad to see you’re feeling a bit better today Sophie. I also had an emotional first week, everything from wondering what I had done to myself to feeling helpless and frustrated, plus the discomfort and just general weepiness. I found my emotions levelled out once I stopped taking pain meds on day 8, I think they were affecting my mood. I’m nearly 6 weeks po now and almost back to normal, it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster but I am so happy that I got it done, absolutely no regrets at all. I’m sure you will feel so much better in no time. xx

    Honestly you will get there eventually, I hadn’t anticipated the amount of pain I would be in either, I thought I was good with pain having giving birth with no pain relief but i said I’d rather have done that again.. I was the same been very independent and I have a 2 year old who I’ve done absolutely everything for since he was born and not been able to bath him, cuddle him etc was getting to me also cause he was a mammys boy , it is definitely worth the pain though just hold in, and you’ll love your new boobies within a few days xxx

    I have been feeling the exact same! I am 3 days post op and just feeling so emotional for no reason, I am really happy with the outcome so don’t actually know what I’m upset over it’s pathetic really haha. I think it’s probably just the operation, plus the not being able to do anything for yourself and being independent, I’m just hoping each day will get better xx
