well for myself.. i had Ba with benelli lift and Overs with FTT...... PAIN PUMP... get it if it is not included.. i felt good... i haed 2 previous c secs and it felt like that.. tender to laugh blow nose bumps get up... but i was ok.. i had one drain in for 4 days and the other out at day 7 I didnt have any breast pain at all.. probably cause its over the muscle... I also had urinary retention, my bladder didnt wake up after surgery so i had a cath for 3 days and i also feel it blew my MR... anyways, if your not a smoker and healthy and take it easy and wear your compression garment.. then id say you will be fine for a light vacay, you WILL be bloated... You will still wear your old pants for awhile and WEAR your garment.. whatever is given or if not get one by CUPID at walmart for 10 bucks.. I lived in mine 4 months til PS sadi ok to not but i wore it nightly until after 6 month....
everyone is diff as to pain tolerence etc...but i highly again say get a pain pump for the first few days it will make the rest of your recovery easier
