  1. @I HaveBoobs yes it was more upper back pain. I’ve never had a pinched nerve so maybe that was it. I’ve never really been hurt before in terms of broken bone or sprained ankles so I didn’t realise my pain threshold was so low. I told my sister who has kids that I was never giving birth even though I love kids but once the pain subsided I was like hmm maybe I could handle it... 😂 the memories of the pain fades when there’s something to enjoy after. I’m loving my new boobies 😁
  2. Hey @I HaveBoobs thank you for sharing. I should have scheduled 3 weeks off. Had my first shift back today. Was only a half day but I wish I had stayed home :( had to run for the train, work was really busy and I was on my feet all day. The trolleys weren’t as heavy as I’ve had in the past but I’m definitely not anywhere near ready for the work I’m supposed to do. I took half a muscle relaxer tablet before I left home for work and spent the whole day so groggy and yawning. I can’t believe how even just half the small tablet made me so tired. I’m going to a gp tomorrow and going to see if I can get a note for more time off.
  3. Yeah @sabP that’s a great idea. I definitely feel more comfortable taking more time off to be on the safe side. Always better to be safe than sorry.
  4. Hey @sabP he actually said I could sleep any way I felt comfortable (including side and on tummy). I have been mostly on my back though because I’ve found it easier to get up in the morning. I had no pain killers left. Went to my local gp today and he was just awful. Didn’t even look at my incision sites and was obviously furious that I asked for endone at the request of my nurse.
  5. Is it normal to have extreme back pain 11 days post op? It feels like someone is stabbing me through my back to my heart. I haven’t slept for longer than an hour and a half since surgery. It’s really affecting my mood. I can’t stop crying and I’m angry at everyone. My PS is at a conference so I don’t know when I’ll be able to visit him for a checkup.
  6. Hi all, Can you please share your experience with how soon you were able to get back to work and what type of work you do? I’ve taken 2 weeks off but my job is occasionally physical. I work in a library so I sometimes have to push heavy trolleys and some of those cook books are ridiculously heavy haha! I’ve paid a lot of money and I don’t want to take any risks plus I obviously don’t want to be in any more pain.

    Surgery booked!

    Had my first post op meeting with my ps yesterday. He said everything is looking on track. I really regret not begging him for painkillers. Panadol is doing nothing. I’m in so much constant pain under one boob at the incision site. He pulled that area down to try and even everything out. Beauty is pain and I know it will all be worth it. But right now I just keep crying from the pain.

    @MellieMoo so happy for you! Yes, I agree can’t wait for shopping! I’ve started taking less of the strong pain killers but really struggling to sleep sitting up. I can’t wait to hear everyone’s progress as I don’t know anyone personally who has done this.

    Surgery booked!

    @DDaa thank you! I’m all done. Was feeling so great but since I’ve gotten home I’ve been in so much pain. Can only take short breaths and every few minutes my body seems to panic and attempts a deep breath. Did you find it hard to walk around? Really hoping this passes soon. @MellieMoo aww happy birthday for yesterday and all the best for today! What a wonderful gift you are giving yourself! I’m in Sydney.
