Hi girls. I am so scared that words can’t describe it. At this rate by my admission time which is 1.30 pm (Natural look Clinic) I will be going mental. Do you know if I am allowed to take paracetamol ?Headache is killing me this morning . I cannot believe it’s actually today
I had a headache on the day, I think from the stressing and not having as much fluid as usual. I was told no paracetamol. Your headache will settle once the process gets started.
Omg Louise my operation won’t be until late afternoon. Thanks for letting me know thoo coz I would probably take one knowing me x
Dont take anything .. try and read to relax yourself or sleep if you can. My surgery ended up being 5.30 and I was like you so nervous. It will soon come around, what is the lastest time you can drink any water? If you still can have lots as will relieve headache and massage your temples. Can u watch a film or anything. goodluck it will be over before you know it xx
Good luck Maggie you’ll be fine. I’m a nervous wreck when it comes to hospitals and needles and honestly if I can do it anyone can lol! It goes so quick once your there and before you know it it’ll all be over with. Just keep yourself occupied while waiting and when your there take deep breaths I really found that helped me stay calm.
As for the headache try a cold compress or 4head
I’m scared as well, on the verge of cancelling. Worrying so much 🙁 xx
Good luck you are in the best hands you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Mr kazzazi and his team are amazing 🙂 happy new boobie day xxx
Amber don’t cancel silly. We ll be both fine . Xxx
Thank you Nadia x I shall keep u all updated. I know it s very helpful for other girls awaiting their surgeries x
You will be fine girls just enjoy it all and take it easy. Make the most of people looking after you.
Ok… so I’m here. Awaiting Mr Kazzazi to see me soon . Emotional rollercoaster is how I would describe it.
Before you know it you’ll be waking up in recovery, remember deep breathes, it really does help xxx
Its going to go by so quick. Good luck x x
Please let me know how you get on chick! Mines in 3 weeks & I’m getting worse as it gets nearer! Good luck hunni x
Let me know how it went, iv got my op at the natural look clinic on 3rd march and I’m petrified of the twilight sedation in case I know what’s happening haha xxx
Hi there ladies. Operation went well – as per what Mr Kazzazi said. Conscious sedation – nothing to worry bout guys – i was knocked out within 5 minutes entering theatre. Lovely staff ! Looking after you at all stages . I am back home now and the worst thing was a travel – each bump or turn – u can feel it. Im in bed now awaiting 24:00 o clock to dose myself up with paracetamol nd ibuprofen. I recon the worst is yet to cum but I am ready to take it on my chest now hahha. Results are not very visible due to strapping so after 34 years of life I will still need to wait another week to judge but they seem to look ok. Lets hope for the best now . Xxx
Glad your operation went well! So nice to read that the conscious sedation thing isnt anything to worry about! Im booked in for surgery on 23rd with Mr Kazzazi at Doncaster, got my pre-op on 13th, did they do much at pre-op? Thanks xx
Glad your operation went well Maggie, all the updates help. I was at my mums last night trying rice bags, as I have been having second thoughts about size ahhh X
Glad it went well Maggie stay on top of painkillers for 24 hrs and just get used to moving
Thanks girls. Taking it steady. Not had best sleep ever but hey I survived. I am trying to move about as much as possible but I can’t get up from bed without help. I won’t b lying – it does hurt but I org pain killers I seem to be ok. I don’t want to overdo it but at the same time do not want to get stiff. Trying to move my arms as much as I can as well. Nipples went a little bit swollen and extra sensitive. And yes conscious sedation is the way forward. Can’t imagine myself going under general anasthesia – that tube thing petrifies mi to death and lets b honest the recovery after it is not going he easiest either. I was told I may wake up for a little while but I will not even remember it. TBH I did not even remember how I moved from the operating table to wheel chair and how they put my dressing gown on. I ll keep u posted on recovery soon xxx
@katie26 -pre op is just the actual confirmation you want to go ahead with what you were suggested in terms of implants on the initial appointment. They go through everything all over again with you to make sure u understand risks and realistic objectives. What size r you going for ? Mine are looking perfect for the frame and I had 350cc . Never wanted unnatural look. Xxx
@louiangel -yes I’m on painkillers – I was expecting pain and I thought I ll survive without but gave up last night when the painkiller drip stopped working its magics haha
@louiangel – just bout coping with it. How is your recovery going ?
@louiangel- r u now mobile or still in bed ? I get up every couple oh hours to have a short walk around the house but I am struggling I must say 🙁
Day 1 i made myself get up every 90 min and walk round. Today i managed a 3 mile walk although it took 2 hours. Just build up slowly
Omg. You are only 4 days post op. I don’t think I’ll be anywhere near your achievements on day 4 but I ll follow your advice and do some more walking tomorrow nd gradually increase it every day.
I did a short walk yesterday probably about a mile so it was gradual. I walked to sainsburys yesterday had a brew and walked back very slowly. Today i walked to m&s had a brew and a scone and walked back again slowly. It was quite mild outside too wouldnt have done it otherwise.
Hi ladies, never posted on a forum before so sorry if this is not forum etiquette! I’ve got my op tomorrow at natural look. I’m so nervous but excited at the same time. I’m a big baby with needles so that’s scaring me slightly too but reading on here suggests I have nothing to worry about. Is there anything you wish you knew before you had you had your op? Any top tips?! I’m getting 450cc x
Prepare yourself mentally and physically that the first few days are gonna be difficult. You need someone who will look after you after operation for the first few days. Do not worry. The surgery itself is like a five minute thing – it will be done before you know it. Just prepare yourself that you might need to wait for your operation a little longer. Mine was approx 2 hours after submission time but there were girls who waited more than that. Take book, tablet or anything to keep yourself occupied so the waiting does not make you run away haha. Be brave. U’ll b just fine. Xxx
Aw thanks! I think I’ve got things covered for being looked after – the other half is in charge and I’m going to milk it for all it’s worth! I’ll make sure I’ve got something to watch while I wait – thanks for the advice! Hope your recovery is going well! Xx
@fh86 – im 3 days PO and I am still alive lol. Not feeling the best but that’s just due to lack of sleep. Just cannot sleep on my back at 45 degrees- whole body hurts like mad- I would say I get more pain from sleeping than from operation … mad but I’m sure I’ll get there eventually … good luck for today and keep us posted on your progress Hun xx
Wooo I did it! I was so nervous this morning! My arrival time was 2pm so having woken up at 5.30am it felt like a massively long wait. I’m home now and being looked after 🙂 the team at the clinic were so great! I can’t speak highly enough of them! On the road to recovery now. Feel so great!!!! ????????
Well done Faye . Happy healing xxx
