    The full heavey feeling you describe is whats ferered to as morning boob ( but not just related to the morning like morning sickness is usually all day sickness 😅) and thats quite normal and will settle over the next few weeks, i would say that you may also be doing to much especially if your running around after a toddler, If you need to pick him/her up squat down scoop them into your chest 1 arm around their back 1 under the bottom and use your legs to lift do not bend from your waist and use your arms as it puts to much strain on your chest which is trying to heal. Dont be to alarmed if you start to experience sharp stabby like pains as well as your about to come into the zingers stage which is just nerves regenerating and this can last for months but the frequency gets less and less.

    Oh gosh it is the waiting period that is the worst! Hopefully it is just a cyst but you are doing the right thing in getting it checked. My GP sent me off for a mammogram + ultrasound this year when she thought she felt a lump. It turned out to be a small fold in my implant. Hopefully it is something like this for you. Please keep us posted. x

    Compression Strap!!!!

    I've heard of many girls having to wear the strap and it did help you just have to give it time but yes if it dos'nt work then it may mean another surgery to release the pocket, keeping my fingers crossed that the strap helps.

    Hey @I HaveBoobs I'm sure you GP/surgeon can check and reassure you. It doesn't sound like ALCL - the symptoms are different. I had a small hard lump a few years ago and went to my GP then a specialist, they did an ultrasound and a needle aspiration and it was a cyst. Let us know how you go xo

    I know its hard with young ones as most of the time all they want is mommy , your ps is right try to minimize how much you pick them up for the next week or two if you can as you risk damaging your pocket or you could rip some internal stitches which may result in surgery to fix (i know its easy for me/people to say so sorry if it sounds harsh) but yes you did spend a lot of money so your just gonna have to improvise and get creative, if their mobile and totting around try to get them to climb (with your help) up onto a chair then lift them onto your lap then stand up or use the scoop n squat method i mentioned earlier, the less you can use your arms/chest in the first 4-6 wks the better off you'll be the pain yoyr feeling is a sign that your diong to much, i dont think by the sounds of things you've done any damage but if you keep diong what your doing you might. Hope i hav'nt come across to harsh i dont mean to just remember you've had major surgery and you need to take it easy. 😊😊. Keep me posted on how you go.

    Hey hun, it's hard to say really. It could be your bra too tight or doing too much too soon. Try to take it a bit more easy (I know that's hard with two little ones). Rest up whenever you can. The feeling of fullness is quite normal, you are still very much early in your recovery. Take care xo

    Awww damn! At least I’m not alone! I’m sure time is what will make this all better but I can’t help but scrutinise them every damn day! My PS told me I’m just going to have to be patient... he also said up to 3 months... . He did tell me that he may have contributed to it because he thinks my ribs are slightly asymmetrical but my video immediately post op was pretty much perfect! My left one (which is the one which has dropped already) was a bit saggier and had more loose skin pre op due to breastfeeding..... but my boobs weren’t obviously asymmetrical.... my right one now needs to drop and fluff like crazy and it’s almost like my left is already D&F completely.... but not sure that can happen in 2 weeks! But it looks pretty perfect right now to me! Not sure I really want my left to D&F anymore than it already has! ill post a pic of them in the morning! i hope your recovering well! I’m sure we all just need to be patient!

    They look wonderful already and you are healing really well. And yes you need to be patient with the healing process, then the drop and fluff. But such a great difference already in your before and after xo

    Glad you're feeling better and your results look great so far, once the brusing and swelling has settled i think they are going to look amazing. Hope the recovery goes smoothly.

    Anyone else worried about uneven dropping?

    Thanks hun! That’s comforting to know that u have seen results with time! I’m just a bit impatient right now! I just get worried that the strap is going to push my good side down more! I’m not seeing my doc for another 5 weeks.... already sick of this strap and it’s been 3 days! he showed me a video of myself immediately post op sitting up on the operating table and they looked so nice and even! But then said he may have contributed to this as my ribs are slightly asymmetrical so it may be internally sutured a little higher on the right!?!? I’m just hoping the fact that they looked so perfect immediately post op means they will drop into place the same.... I’m pretty lopsided right now!

    Surgery Day

    Ok....so I'm on the other side!! I fainted before the procedure when they put a fluid drip in as I was so dehydrated, was out of it when my PS marked me up and then felt 100% better after if fluids and panadol before being properly sedated! What a drama queen hey, anyways woke up well not too groggy. Slept on and off throughout yesterday. Was dying to drink but had to wait a further 6 hours after procedure to have fluids, nurses gave me ice cubes to suck thank goodness. Sore and swollen as to be expected, felt better after iv removed this morning and I'm now at home resting in bed with my mountain of pillows behind me. My bruising is quite bad as I needed to have clexane (anti clotting med) during and after procedure as I have factor V maiden (clot easier than others)..I'm not shocked at the result, feel quite pleased so far (I think looking at lots of before and after on forum has prepared me for worst) My left breast is sitting higher than the other but I'm well aware patience is required before seeing finished result. Have attached some pictures, thanks for your kind words and support!😘😘😘

    You can read more about PU implants and ALCL here https://www.tga.gov.au/breast-implant-associated-cancer-or-bia-alcl The risk of ALCL with these implants is statistically much greater than with micro textured implants. You may consider doing more research on them. There is a very good chance they will be banned by the TGA as they have proposed on 11th July.

    @margaretriver aww dw I keep getting same type of paranoia couple times I've over stretched to reach something and really hurt myself then panicking whether ive ruined something lol and couple times I got this weird slightly painful pop feeling in my breast like muscle snapping in place or something lol only happened a couple times not sure if it's normal or not i duno maybe is a spazam seems to happen when my chest tenses but not letting myself get overly concerned.. besides that I'm doing great the recovery is know where near as bad as I was expecting I'm already lifting my 12kg 11month old with no issues at all and I'm only just over 1 week po, but I don't make habit of doing it often only when I need too lol my 2 yr old I haven't been confident to lift yet but I probably could.. today is the first day I'm going to be completely on my own as my partner heads back to work and my 8 year old back to school so not sure how I'm going to go with putting them down to nap etc... my breasts are slowly softening they seem to feel alot softer when I bend down not sure why lol my breasts were very different too I think that's normal, from the moment I woke up from surgery my right side has been basically pain free, but my left was alot worse, now they both basically pain free only time I feel pain now is if I over stretch to do some thing and getting in and out of bed oh yes and after sleeping and getting up in morning which is what i think they refer to as morning boob lol..

    Adelaide - Dr Kollias - Subfascial/overs

    @MellieMoo, have you had a second opinion just for peace of mind? I consulted with Dr.Kollias and Dr.Cooter who both had very similar recommendations which made me feel better about sizing and profile of implants
