So, thanks girls for your support. I had my surgery on Tuesday night 7.30pm. Dr Marie Rostek was the plastic surgeon who did my surgery as Tim Brown was overseas. I was the last person on surgery list late in the day which bothered me a little (because people are obviously tired etc) but after meeting her I felt like I was the first person she was seeing for the day. All of the support staff & nurses were truly amazing (at Belura Private Mornington) at a time when I was utterly devastated and vulnerable. They really cared. I had both implants removed, my right breast had a 60ml haematoma which had pooled under the nipple and my left breast had 15ml haematoma. Right breast implant was replaced with a fresh implant and my left was removed, cleaned out and replaced. So I'm back to square one with recovery but feel better this time. I was terrified my boobs would look like a dogs breakfast after second round of surgery so soon but this is not the case. They look amazing now and will hopefully continued to so so. This has been a massive setback for myself and especially my family who rely on my. I will be very interested to see how well I recover without complications. The blood clots were the reason I felt no improvement over 3 weeks after the 1st surgery, but it's hard to know what to expect when you're traveling down a new path. 

I am still in hospital taking IV antibiotics and pain relief and will possibly go home tomorrow or Saturday. 

I have attached a picture I took yesterday when dressings were removed. I am also wearing stretchy tubing to help keep things firm. 

This is obviously not what I anticipated (apparently 1 in 20 BA/BL patients experience haematoma) but I am grateful and happy to have been in such wonderful hands to correct the problems.

Now I'll get busy (Not busy) healing! Hope you are all well xxx

So glad the surgery went well and you are getting great medical care from everyone.  So interesting that the pain levels you were experiencing from the first op were obviously a sign something was not quite right.  Hopefully everything will be back on track for you now.

Your scars look suprisingly good for just having a 2nd op three weeks after your first.

Take care and all the best with your recovery ?
