I had mine done on June 2. I still have some loss of muscle use in my arms and small shooting pain. Other than that I am pain free. The real bad owie pain only lasts a couple weeks. Then is slowly goes away. I took pain killers and muscle relaxers for the first two weeks. If you are in pain take them. My doctor kept telling me that over and over. It's very important for your muscle to heal back up and if you over do it it won't heal right. If you have any more questions at all let me know.

Be consistant with your pain meds... don't slack off taking them because you "think" the pain is starting to go away. At least for the first 2 weeks.

And make sure Matt waits on you hand and foot.

Cheers!

HEy girl! cheesy.gif

I will share with the world also-my breasts are also not real!

My advice to you-are you sleeping upright?? This was huge for me...finally when I was able to sleep on my side, I used a pillow for support. I was on Oxycontin(SP) for the first few days but then went off and started to take Advil. The pain will be around for a couple weeks at least...and obviously try not to lift anything!!

I found the easiest things-like opening doors or doing up the buttons on my jeans to be a challenge for the first while too!

Also, I'm sure the doctor has told you to do your "boob exercises"...lol.

Not sure if this helped at all, but I am more than willing to answer anymore questions you may have! cheesy.gif

Try not to move them at all lol. I mean you can move them but no raising them and no picking anything up heavier than a plate or a cup. I was given nasea meds. I was so sick that as soon as I would stand up I would throw up. Lucky for me Ryan was amazing and literally kept a chart of my meds and when to take them and would carry me to the bathroom if I needed it. But really you need to take it really slow. Someone mentioned about sleeping upright. I did this also for the first two weeks. Some nights I couldn't sleep. Ryan would go take the big cushions off the couch and set them up then set up a bunch of pillows and that usually helped. Make sure you wear your support bra all the time. Don't take it off if it hurts and make sure you wear the strap they give you. I freakin' had to wear that thing for about a month and a half. And it hurts really bad. But keep it on, it's so your boobs don't set too high.
