Post op, met my new friends today

Had my surgery at 8AM today. Everything went well. Honestly the worst part was the iv in my hand, I almost passed out and they had to give me oxygen, that stuff creeps me out!

I tried to nap after and was in and out because laying back or shifting at all really hurts. Just took another pain killer because I was due, hopefully that helps. Other than that just going to try and eat here and go look again. I know they're swollen but happy with the size. I just don't like that they are slightly pointy right now, I know they have a lot of changing and dropping to do though.

I'll keep you all updated, glad they're finally here!

Thanks all, quick question. Just showered and looked them over and it looks like I have a light purple line on each breast going from the bottom of my nipple to the base of each. Hope it's not a stretch mark and that it fades but not sure, anyone had this? Thanks!

It's most likely a vein. You may get very veiny for a few days while blood supply is re-establishing. There will also be weird pains, zingers, tingling, numbing...all sorts of wonderful new things that will come and go, pass in time ect. Do you have a 24 hour check up tomorrow? Ask your PS if you are concerned.

Ok thanks, I'll wait to ask her. Post op isn't until Tuesday, a little longer because of the holiday but I have her cell phone and can call her anytime if important.

dex is an unknown quantity at this point
Congrats!
I heard when you have 'unders' your best friend is a muscle relaxant as opposed to a pain pill.
You may want to ask your doctor about them when you go for your post-op appointment.
Take lots of pictures to compare your progress. It really helps to track the changes that occur.
