  1. Did you get dermal blocking injections ( a few in in your gum/lip to block the feeling in your lips)? That made it way less painful for me. Iv had my lips done 3 times and am going in for a top up tomorrow. I find it takes 5-7 days for the bruising to go away. I didn’t have bruising all over my lips just some spots. I put bruising cream on liberally, which helped. And I covered it with a good coverage natural coloured lipstick when I was around ppl. But did find it awkward at work, as I couldn’t keep the bruising covered all the time, e.g, eating and drinking etc. The swelling usually ta
  2. @DiamondC they do look amazing!!! Amazing cleavage! Best wishes @AllyT ?
  3. Oh good I’m glad to hear. It helped me to hear that from @JD* also prior to surgery. Yes keep us posted on how you go next week
  4. It is exciting!!! You’re welcome to pm me if you need to chat about anything. I’m on day 3 post op and am still not feeling pain. Just discomfort of heaviness of boobs, and not being able to pull or weight bare on my arms. But you find alternate ways to do some things! And I have only had Panadol occasionally since coming home. I thought I would be in lots of pain and bed ridden. So I’m very pleasantly surprised that I can do lots of day to day light tasks independently. I think the worst of it for me is not being able to sleep on my back. However I had 8 hours of sleep last night w
  5. Oh wow I’m feeling some grief and loss about being able to sleep on my side for a while!! It’s tough changing your position when you’re so used to it. It will be tough, but worth it (I say that after just 2 nights ?)
  6. Thank you @AS1, it will be you next week!! You will be in good hands! Nice to know it’s not just me!! I had a nap at home today and arranged pillows all around me lol. Was a lot comfier. Sleeping at home is sooo much better!! Even if it is on my back
  7. Thanks @I HaveBoobs. Yes I did have local anaesthetic. Makes more sense today. Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t sleep until 2am with the nurses coming in, and so uncomfy for multiple reasons (tubes, bed on a 30 degree angle, sleeping on back). Need to get used to sleeping on my back as I always sleep on my side. Anyone have that issue? I put pillows on either side and that helped after reading about it. It’s probably been covered in the thread somewhere.
  8. Oh good! I asked the nurse and she said the other 5-6 girls who had surgery today are feeling the same also. She said the anaesthesiologist probably put together a good balance of meds. My belly is so bloated though. But from what iv read that’s normal. I have degas tablets from home that the nurse said were okay to take. That has helped a bit. Roll call List is getting shorter!!!
  9. Thanks heaps ?. Went into surgery at 830 this morning with Dr K. Staying overnight in hospital. I’m feeling okay so far. Haven’t felt pain. I haven’t had strong pain meds since the morning. Napped for a few hours after surgery. But had my parents and husband with me, and have been normal (besides usual limited mobility). I didn’t expect to feel this okay after. I wonder if it’s the anaesthetic?? Has anyone experienced this and then the pain hits later or something? I haven’t asked for any more meds yet. @JD* sounds similar to your experience?
  10. Thanks so much @Tori14 and @Olivia81. Apologies iv been a bit absent from the thread. I have been really busy getting married and then honeymoon, then got food poisoning when I got home yesterday! But luckily I’m well just in time. Had just today to get the house in order etc. Has been busy! So I probably haven’t had much space to dream or think about surgery until today. Glad you are feeling better Olivia ?. The initial boxy look I know will annoy me too, but it’s comforting to see from others pics how they soften over time! Just like yours will.
  11. lol how annoying to wake up with a belly after all that! My hunger and thirst tolerance is low so I will struggle! Happened when I got my wisdom teeth out and it was so hard to not think about water lol no matter how much I distracted myself it was all I thought about! But this forum is great to have more details of some things that will most likely happen so we know what to expect ?
  12. Aww you’re in a difficult position. I didn’t realise you weren’t in Aus also. I need to change by surgery date to the 8th December. Am pushing it forward a week to fit in a honey moon before it ?
  13. I really feel for you also what a tough situation. I would agree with the others about going to a local surgeon if you can
  14. Aww often the uncertainty of not knowing can be one of the hardest parts. I would try calling the surgeon to try and get a quicker response.
  15. Hi ladies I have a date to add to the roll call, I just booked a surgery date for the 1st December 2018 with Dr Kollias ?
