  1. Feeling a bit crappy today...2 weeks post op from my breast lift and augmentation and struggling bit with pain. Wondering how long it's going to take to turn the corner? First week seemed easier to handle (lots of pain meds) but this 2nd week has been a struggle...by the end of the day my chest is aching and I need to lay down. I don't think I've been doing too much but I'm not sure. I don't work and my husband is at home with me taking care of kids etc I am just pottering around really. My next check up with Drs is Friday...how much longer till pain starts to subside without pain meds?????
  2. Hello, I am off to Thailand on the 28th of August to have cosmetic surgery at PPSI with Dr. Pongstatorn. I will be having mid-lower facelift and neck lift with under chin correction as well as blephorapasty (upper and lower). I have a question for people who have had procedures done regarding outpatient pain medication. Do we get pain relief even though they are very strict about it in Thailand? The drug laws are so strict I was wondering will patients get strong relief like panadeine forte? Over should I bring my own ( which I understand I need a note and not 30 days
  3. Hi girls! A quick update! I'm in so much discomfort and pain today. The pressure on my chest is almost unbearable. I went through labour and emergency caesarean before and I don't think it was this painful. I only had 270cc! Anyway I'm happy with the result, still high and pointy but I can see their potential for the future D&F. I'm on prodeine forte and endone... hopefully tomorrow is an easier day! How is everyone else doing today?
  4. Hi all 3 weeks post BA and am having most awful pain in left breast. It hadn't dropped yet like my other one and is very tight. The pain I have is a burny, sting pain which Drs say sounds like nerve. It's debilitating and I nearly dropped my baby yesterday at the sudden sharp pain. Dr has given me meds but they either take a while to kick in or are not working. Have ultrasound tomorrow. Has anyone experienced this and will it go away?
  5. I have had 2 BA's in 18 months....... The first was November 2014 - 450cc mod profile I had continuos pain mainly in the right breast/under arm and the breast implants were slipping out to the underarm. After I called prior to the 1 year post op appt, I had a consult and saw the Dr and was booked in within a few days free of charge for a revision. Due to constantly feeling like my arms were out off my body as the size implant was too wide for my chest, I asked for smaller implants however was advised that they would not fill out my breast. So they could change the profile and
  6. Hi ladies, Repost as I accidentally posted in the wrong forum! I had had my BA This morning at 7am. Feeling fine from the surgery itself and the pain is really manageable around the incisions with only a little pressure. The panadeine Forte prescribed is doing just fine for this. Unfortunately I had spinal surgery 5 years ago and have two long titanium rods and screws through the length of back - used to straighten a 65 degree curve.. Both surgeon and hospital were made aware of this and were only concerned about my ability to lay flat etc which is all good. I do however now have stabbing re
  7. Hey ladies, I'm now 9.5 weeks post op from my tuberous breast correction and wanted to thank you all for your support and info during my recovery from my BA. As some of you would know my recovery was the PITS, and I have since spoken to Dr M about my whole experience. I felt like I was being a sook, couldn't handle the pain, there was something wrong, was having a bad BA experience etc etc....but that was all put into perspective last week with Dr M. I told Dr M how disappointed I was in myself that I couldn't 'go out the day after surgery and go shopping and to the movies' like so many ladies
  8. Hey Ladies, I just need confirmation that this feeling I am getting is completely normal.. I went to the cosmetic institute on Monday the 27th July for a BA with Dr. Jim Kenny. My experience with him was great and he was very professional. Im just concerned that something is wrong with my left breast because my right breast has pretty much all feeling back and i am able to lift my arm above my head but the left breast i pretty much constantly have a really sharp shooting pain through my nipple and side... Has anyone else experienced this and if so what should I do? Thanks xx
  9. I have my two week checkup on Wednesday and just waiting for my Surgeons office to open so I can call and talk to them about my pain management moving forward. I have had a pretty good recovery apart from during the night. I think on day 7 I slept through the whole night without needing any extra pain meds. Prior to that I was taking some before bed at say 8-9pm and then needing more at around 4am. I am now finding that since I'm not taking anything during the day or before bed that I am waking up in the middle of the night and needing some. I want to go back to work in a few days but am worri
  10. Hi Ladies, Long time reader, first time poster here So, it seems that one of my implants has bottomed out. It has been quite painful and looks lower than the other. I have been resting up hoping it won't drop any lower. Do all ladies who bottom out get it repaired? I hope that if I leave it, it will just stay put and not continue dropping. I would really like to avoid revision surgery and just put up with one low boob. Problem is, it still hurts. Does the pain from bottoming out ever go away? My implants are 12 months old and the bottoming out started about 3 months ago. Thank you.
  11. Hi Ladies, I'm wanting to go brunette in the near future and thought when better than when I get my BA in March! I'm going interstate for it, but was wondering if it would be too soon/painful to get it done 2 days after surgery? Surgery is Wednesday and was thinking hair Friday. Obviously not the hair or sitting in the chair, but where they rince and wash your hair and you have to lie in that uncomfortable chair! Any advice or help? Thank ladies!
  12. Hey ladies, I'm sure it's normal but I just want another option. I'm just over ten days post op and wow under my boobs where the incisions are is still very painful when I was washing today I noticed on one side it's a little more swollen just at one end under the skin, it kind of feels like a lump?? The cuts themselves are not red and look very good and healthy, and my surgeon said everything was good at my one week check. Side Boob is also very sore. Lol I'm sure it's all part of the journey but just wanted reassurance
  13. Hey ladies, I have been wanting to get my breasts done for quite sometime now. I'm 21 and live in cairns (FNQ) I have been researching about the cosmetic institute in Bondi and the price is amazing and I don't mind the twilight sedation either. I've never gone under any sort of sedation before so of course I am a bit nervous! I do suffer from anxiety which I control myself without any medication but I've heard if you have a high anxiety rate it could take sometime for the twilight sedation to work? is this true? I'm not too worried about the sedation but I am quite nervous about the pain after
  14. Hi ladies! I booked in my BA 6 months ago for the 3rd of October. I now have a charity ball to attend the weekend after and a wedding 2 weekends after. I am freaking out that I will be a walking zombie or be in too much pain to attend. I know everyone's experiences and pain thresholds are different but I was hoping for a few opinions. It would be great to know how people where feeling at the 1 week and 2 week stages (eg 1-10 pain). Unfortunately I am unable to move my op date due to work annual leave restrictions.
  15. Day 1 22 July 2014 @ 7:45am appointment for surgery at kingsgrove day hospital. Luckily I was the first patient. Gave the hospital my forms and signed my life away. They took me into the locker room and gave me a locker and hospital clothes to wear. Unfortunately I had my periods (3rd day) thankfully it wasn't a heavy flow and I was allowed to wear my own undies (must be cotton) and my own pads. Once dressed, I walked into the cozy waiting room and sat with the nurse (Victoria) and she went through my forms with me and taught me to use my abs when I get up or sit down to prevent using my p
  16. Would like to hear from Post op girls that have experienced sharp pain due to nerve endings healing. Anyone experience this? if so how long did it take for the pain to ease up and or go away. I'm now two weeks post op and the the sharp pain is agonizing it starts the minute i pick up or pull something, even when stretching like putting on a jacket. I feel like a cripple Also any suggestions to help ease the pain?
  17. Hey ladies, It's my 3rd day post op yesterday I moved a lot and used my arms yesterday but today I'm in major pain. It was 7/10 pain yesterday today it's like 10/10! Is this normal or should I be concerned??? I'm a im stressed as I thought pain should be less as the days go on but right now every move or breath I take I feel pain and it is excruiitiating!!! I'm still taking endone one tab every 4 hrs wat else can I do for my pain?
  18. I'm one of the fortunate few, I guess, that has not had separation or herniation of my abdominal muscles, even though I have had three boys (now aged 25, 20 and 15), with the largest 9 1/2 lbs. Also, I don't have the stretch marks or skin laxity of a lot of typical tummy tuck patients, but my particular issue is the localized depositing of fat as I get older above the mons and below the navel - caused in part by genetic factors but exacerbated by previous surgical scarring. My PS said I was a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck but I kind of figured, if I'm getting the scar I might as well g
  19. Hi guys, It's day 6 post op me pretty much from right after surgery my right arm if I move it in a strange way or try and raise it up over my head fully extended, I'm getting a sharp piercing nervish shooting pain from my boob to under my armpit and half way down the inner side of my arm. It's like the implant has been placed on top of a nerve or something as my top part of my inner arm kind of feels numb.. Has anyone else experienced something similar?
  20. I'm day 5 post BA and since surgery I have the very painful sharp, burning shoots going from under the arm pit to the right breast. Occasionally on the left. They happen when I move about. The shoots last several seconds and I freeze up because of the pain. If it wasn't for this pain, recovery would be better. Has anyone experienced this? And how did you manage it? I have read that massage, icing and anti-inflammatory medications help the pain. Lidocaine patches, a form of local anesthetic, can also help. But my nurse adviced me not to use anti-inflammatory and also it's too early to mas
  21. Holy s*** im in sooooooo much pain! I had my surgery at 7am yesterday and i've nearly fainted eveytime i get up from the pain and not being able to breath properly. I have panadine and it is literally doing nothing im going to ask if i can get anything stronger today at my checkup. I have a fairly low pain tolerance so that doesnt help haha. My back is killing me from how im sitting in bed. Does anyone have any tips or advice on how to reduce discomfort and strain on your back? I will do a massive update story when i can move my arms without wanting to die and rip these things out of m
  22. Hello So I'm 2 weeks post op today and I still have a lot of swelling around the side of my boobs/like under my arms and I'm still in quite a lot of pain all over. Does this sound normal? Thanks !!
  23. Hello lovely ladies, My surgery is on the 16th of April and from what I can see a lot of people are very exited about their upcoming surgerys. I however am not I am actually consumed by my fear of what the pain is going to be like as I've never experienced any pain, ive never been to hospital, had any major dentist work, or had surgery before, there isnt a scar on my body. I feel like a pregnant mum who isnt exited this isnt right lol! please tell me what it was like for you and if the pain meds actually made the pain go away...is there anything else that worked? Yes I am
  24. I'm still in a fair bit if pain after 4 days, this does sound a bit stupid as it is not that long, but reading ladies recovery stories on here I was lead to believe that recovery was fairly quick. Is it normal that I still have quite severe pain on day 4? When did the pain stop for you?
  25. Hi Ladies So, I'm all booked and ready to go with Dr Miroshnik on the 9th of August:D! I'm SO scared,nervous,excited and happy all at the same time. What is everyone doing to prepare themselves? Any tips or advice for aftercare?? The thing I'm scared about which I'm sure everyone else would be is before the op (so being put on the surgery bed etc) and waking up to BOOBIES (I'm expecting excruciating pain!!) Ahhh! So any advice, tips or info would be REALLY appreciated. Even if there are any girlies here who have gotten a BA with Dr Miroshnik?? Thanks Ladies xxx
