I had had my BA last Wednesday morning with Dr Tavakoli. Nicest guy! I was meant to have my drains taken out the next day at 9am at his Double Bay Surgery. But because my drains were still filling up with blood/'fluid', I had to leave it in for another day. I went back in Friday morning to see him, and he advised me he's not going to remove the drains but text him, Saturday and Sunday morning letting him know how much fluid I've been losing.
I texted him Saturday morning advising him I've emptied 70mls (from 10:00pm to 6:30am) from my drains. He then replied that's ok, it will slow down. Then called me 10 minutes later and told me to go to the nearest hospital to get a blood test. So my hubby dropped me off to Royal North Shore Hospital Emergency. Stayed there for 2 hours, blood test was all normal. But Those 2 hours felt like I was there for a whole day. It was so stressful for me. I started googling possible reasons why I could still be bleeding, is there a possibility my body is rejecting the implant. I was pretty scared to be honest. This whole time prior to BA I was so blaze and happy and excited. Didn't even think about complications, and then BoOm, post BA, Dr T wants me to message him daily, so he can monitor me, doing blood tests on a Saturday afternoon in emergency.
On Sunday morning, I messages Dr T again how much I had drained. Think it was still about 70mls (from 10:30pm-7:30am)
he texted me back and said meet him at his surgery at Greenwich Monday morning 9am. I freaked out and thought I had to go back into surgery. But lucky I asked him, and he replied it was just to take the drains out. Phew!
Monday morning 9am came, Dr T checked my boobies and said they are recovering well. But just to be safe, he wants me to do an ultrasound this Thursday. Which is today. And go see him again next Tuesday. My drains were finally taken out on Monday.
I Just want to know if any of your girls have had similar experience or know of anyone with similar situation? I still don't really know what's going, but will definitely ask Dr T when I see him next Tuesday for 2 week Post Op check up. He mentioned something about my muscles, hence why he wants me to do an ultrasound. Kinda don't like the unknown feeling.
