Flying after augmentation

Did anyone have troubles flying after having the augmentation done by dr revis? I will be flying out the day after and am concerned about not being able to take my meds or if the airport will harass me because I won't be able to raise my arms very high.

I called the airline and requested wheelchair assistance, just encase. They wheeled me right through security and didnít require me to go through the scan thing where you lift your arms, just a regular metal detector because of the surgery. I brought all my meds on the plane with me, I times it to where I took my pain pill one hour prior to take off. I didnít need wheelchair assistance when we landed but it was an option if needed.

I flew out the first or second day after my surgery with Revis too, but I had a friend and thank goodness I did.... I was so tired and sleepy from the meds, I think I would have missed all of my connecting flights because i would just fall asleep waiting in the lounges at the airport! But aside from that everything and everyone else was fine. If you can, like Undergirl said, request the special assistance!

I'm wondering if special compression socks for blood clots might be a good idea? I'm not a medical professional and do not know the answer but I had the socks after my BA and know that flying might be connected to clots.
