First off congrats to all the girls who have been bestowed with beautiful boobies this week. I am one of the many. I had a fabulous experience overall. I had my surgery 3 days ago and while there has been the obvious pain( thank you Percocet and Valium) things have gone pretty smoothly. Today was my second day home and I feel and appear much larger today which I assume is due to swelling. Is there a point in your recovery when the swelling maxes out. The first day I was swollen in between quite a bit. That seems to have subsided. Now they feel much fuller today. Very tight on the sides and such. When will that stop. I don't mean go away. Just stop getting larger. I hope that makes sense. also, anyone that had a surgery date close to mine, how is your recovery going? Happy thoughts to all.

Congrats to you and your new girls! I had mine recently as well and was full/swollen with armpit boobs for several days. They seem to have gone down a bit and are less in my armpits than they were initially.

The post-op bra that I was sent home in was so painful the first two days, I called my PS and asked if I could take it off early (she wanted me to wear it for the first 72 hours) and instead replace it with a super stretchy, regular sportsbra from Walmart. LOvely lady that she is, she was okay with it.

I just tried on that same bra last night and it fits much better now. Still tight but not nearly as strangling as it was in the beginning so that leads me to think (this is just occurring to me now as I type this, LOL) that my swelling has gone down significantly.

Hopefully yours will go down soon as well! Drink lots of water - that will help.
