It actually wasn't too bad. We have awesome PCTs so I didn't do any lifting/patient transfer/repositioning for the first 2 weeks. And of course all the other nurses on the floor knew about the surgery as well and were helping me out if I needed them. I was just running up and down the halls, passing meds, charting, ...

Trust me. Be kind to your body!! If you do too much too soon, it could delay the dropping of your implants. Even little stuff like repeatedly reaching across a desk for a phone. Stuff like that. At 2.5 weeks post-op I got sick and threw up, and it caused bleeding in my left breast. Now I might get capsular contracture, we have to wait and see. So, just shows that you can damage things even if you're feeling better (I was already back at work at that point). Be careful and take care of yourself!
How did you know you were bleeding !!??
