    RoxyA got a reaction from Iwantbigboobehs in June TCI Bondi Dr Dash   
    Morning ladies, about to fly out back to Perth! Had the surgery on Friday morning! Everything has gone so well, much better than I had expected. Dr Dash was good, quite full of himself (as most cosmetic/plastic surgeons are) and I could tell he is very over qualified for what he is doing at TCI, he was telling me he had done 7years surgical experience and had to reconstruct breast using stomach tissue and muscles, so no need to worry about his experience.
    He didn't give much guidance on size which I was disappointed about and I was just left to decide completely for myself. Besides that, the staff and nurses at TCI were absolutely amazing and so happy I went with them! They answered all my questions and make you feel so at ease! I only got nervous when I walked into the surgery but they put u out almost instantly and I don't remember anything until I woke up at the hotel.
    I had my surgery at 7am and slept most of the rest of the day, only had one panadeine forte before bed and woke up in a bit of pain at 3am so took a endone to help get back to sleep. I was very sore when I woke up but it's more of a muscular pain so when I got up and loosened up I felt great. Have had very little pain killers since then, went out for lunch and dinner yesterday and slept quite well last night. My incisions are hurting a bit today and the taxi ride to the airport was a bit ruff but besides that I feel good!!
    If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask, pm me!!
    Good luck u guys!! X

    Essential Lavender Oil is a very calming oil which can help with sleep. You can also buy Rescue Remedy specifically for sleep. Or if you don't want to take something too heavy like Valium, you could ask your doctor for Melatonin.

    Hey!!
    It is really hard to be able to know how much time you will need until you have had the surgery and know how your body reacts to it. You can't use other people's experiences as judgment.

    For example, I had mine on Friday and went back to work on Tuesday (probably could have gone back Monday) but others on here took HEAPS longer to recover fully.

    All I can say is I definitely would NOT go back to work until earliest Wednesday (TCI recommends 3-5days after surgery for recovery before returning to a desk job) - one day is definitely not enough.

    Remember your body will be in enough shock trying to heal itself and even if you are relatively pain free like I was, you still need to rest or your recovery will take a lot longer.

    Hope that helps!!

    Thanks for your input ladies! Sounds like I shouldn't be stressing out too much about it, I will contact TCI and see what they say too! Gosh I feel huge at the moment, can't wait for the swelling to go down, I feel like a body builder! Haha

    Good luck Roxy! I'd love to know how you go

    I'm going with Dr Dash at the Parramatta clinic on 24th June. Nervous and excited.

    There's heaps to do in and around Bondi. The shopping is amazing and there are heaps of nice cafes in the area. I can't help with accommodation advice, sorry! But I know you won't be bored there.

    How exciting for you RoxyA! I hope you enjoy this group as much as I have - such a supportive group of ladies I joined this forum after my BA on April 7th (so I'm not on the list).

    All the best to the 3 lucky ladies up tomorrow!! Those dream boobs are almost here!

    I did take out the CC. It works out $100 a year. Its a personal preference . Im still pain free so the flight was ok. I really really hate flying so the only thing different I did was have NO ALCOHOL pre flight .only because we are not allowed PO That's a first for me . My nerves weren't too bad though I did consider taking the endone to calm me but I didn't do it.

    I was pretty tired when I got home as we still had a fair drive from the airport home, but I had a good sleep when I eventually got home.

    Good luck for next week hun its very exciting Breast Wishes
