I've just tried to suck it up and surprising I got used to it quick. I've only been wearing it for about 4 days but I don't mind it. It actually feels like it keeps my breasts supported and in place. This is just part of the process. Take some of the pain meds while you get used to it if you really have so. I also work full time, have a 13 month old and a husband so I stay very busy, which keeps my mind off the band. It is SO worth it!!!

Definitely follow your PS's instructions to a T! It is really uncomfortable at first but I'm telling you once you get used to it when you start not to wear it your boobs won't feel safe unless in that bra haha its supposed to squish them to reduce you from swelling up even more at first when i took mine off to shower my boobs swelled up so much i couldn't get it back on!

You're talking about the strap right? I had to wear it 24/7 for a whole month but honestly, it's not that bad.
My only advice, put guaze or t.p under your armpits because the strap may start to rub/chafe ur skin
