    Yep, sleeping upright does suck! But think of the pain if you were lying on your back and having to use your arms to get up!! Auughh!
    Try not to move your arms at all! 2 weeks is still very new, so try and rest as much as you can! I had a hard time sitting still and went to the gym (1 week after) thinking i could just walk on the treadmill, and almost passed out...so rest rest rest!!!

      My roommate in university had the surgery and I was the lucky one who got to take care of her! She took LOTS of Percocet, I think every 6 hours or something and she was way out of it...so for about 4 days we watched all of the sex and the city dvd's and then she was fine! She did say that it felt like a truck ran over her chest though.

      I think she went back to work a week later. She visited her surgeon several times though in the course of 3 weeks following and received specific instructions. Do you have any more follow up visits booked? I think it's important to have the dr. provide you with what you are/aren't supposed to be doing!!

        My doctor told me not to do that. That it was shown not to help. But who knows I guess every doctor has their own way of doing stuff. I didn't do it though and I had no problems.
        I can't believe you went and exercised a week after?! I didn't even want to get out of bed let alone go running!! He made me wait a month before I was cleared to even walk around the neighborhood. Even then I had to wear two sports bras!

              The pain really depends on how you had them done (under or over and did you go in via armpit, tummy, nipple, or under the breast). I chose the most painful way (didnt know this until after) which is through the arm and under the muscle. I used to work out constantly and had no body fat (man I miss those days) so he had trouble with my muscles as they were too tight.

              Best things to do if you did yours the same way is to keep your arms at your sides (have FI wash and blow dry your hair so you do not lift them up over your head). Sleep upright on a pillow (my dr. made me do this for a month so I took sleeping pills to help at night). Do not lift anything over 5-10 lbs.

              Don't worry it gets better and I promise what they look like today is completely different than 30 days from now...don't worry!
              congratulations

                Yeah, don't freak out at what they look like! I had people tell me this and I still freaked out! Mine are still changing a bit. People that know I have them done are shocked at how real they look now. You really can't tell! Just hang in there!

                  I can't believe I'm actually posting this, but I also had surgery in July (I wish I would have not listened to my mom and gone a little bigger!) Anyway, I was in pain for only the first few days, 4 max. I slept upright for MAYBE a week and a half. After thank, I had to be very careful about how I moved, but I was pretty much functional and pain free by the second week. The first few days are rough though, but just remember it's worth it. Make sure that you have someone to help you sit up if you need help, don't try to do it yourself! My big thing is... take your antibiotics. My doctor put me on 7 days which was not enough, I had to go to another doctor and get back on the meds for another 10 days. I promise you are almost home-free from the majority of the pain! I dont know if you're big into working out, but I love to run. I waited 6 weeks before I tried to run and it was pretty odd at first. I think what really helped was my sports bra. I bought an UnderArmor sportsbra which is AMAZING and I highly recommend it! If you need to know anything else, you can PM me, I'll be happy to help in any way!

                    Oh, I started at the gym at 4 weeks just doing the bike. I was getting bored at home and had to workout.
