Day 2 of my BA... Swollen!

Recommended Posts

Hi lovely ladies,

It's all done! OMG I can't believe it! I am lucky because I sleep on my back and so slept well after my morning op... I actually slept the whole day with the help of oxycodone and apart from some general expected swelling and tightness, am feeling okay.

Have also been guzzling fluid to help with water retention and drinking this miracle formula my doctor gave me to keep regular :p

Question for u ladies, when do you start putting bio oil?

I'm worried about stretch marks so I want to get onto it as soon as I can!

Also I have to say that my experience with Dr. Richard Rahdon and St. John of gods hospital has been amazing. If you live in Melbourne or Geelong I highly recommend him!

Now fingers crossed for a good recovery and no cc.

Good luck to everyone else lined up for surgery this month!

Hey trixiepixie! I waited until 5 days post op, which was when I had my post op check up. I asked if could use bio oil or palmers cream and the nurse said no worries just don't put it on my incisions yet. I massage it in and am just careful not to get it to close to the incision area. Which is easier with cream then oil :)

So glad to hear than everything went so well for you! How are you feeling today? Did you get lactulose? It works pretty damn good haha. Bio oil should be fine to use from around a week I would think, if you are unsure give body recon a call and I am sure they can help you out.

I wouldn't be to concerned about stretch marks though, I didn't get a single one and I didn't use any bio oil. Even if you do Richard will help you out with laser treatments at the clinic! I am back there on Monday for scar revision! Make sure you put up some pics for me to check out :D

Hey ladies,

So Day #4 and things seem to be going blissfully well. Hopefully it stays that way! ATM the only thing i am worried about is sitting on my arse all day and its going to get huge! I've been reading up on other people's BA and its so different person to person! I dont have a strap to hold down my girls but hopefully it'll still drop nicely... lol

in other news, I have heard my first official BOOB FART. LOL.
