Day 2 of my Breast Reduction Journey

13 January 2013

Click HERE to view my new YouTube channel that is dedicated to my breast reduction! (MrzMills3 is my user name)

I went to the Doctor today for my next day follow up appointment. I filmed the appointment, so click on my link above to watch the video.

Today I've been a little sore. My pain level is still about a 2 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest. I don't really have any pain. It's all soreness. The doctor had to do a little bit of Lipo on the side of my breast as part of the procedure yesterday, so that area has a lot of tenderness.

Around 4:30 pm I took a two hour nap. That is the most sleep that I have had since surgery.  I don't know why I can't sleep. The medicine makes me drowsy but I don't fall sleep. It's so weird. It's like I feel tired and exhausted but I can't sleep.

I don't have much of an appetite at all. I only ate once today and it's already 10 pm. I plan to have something small and light if I get hungry later. I have been drinking a lot of water. I have to stay hydrated. Here's some before and after pictures. The after pictures I have on my surgical wrap. This will stay on for a week then I will receive a surgical bra that I will wear for 4-6 weeks.

AFTER



I'm not sure if you can really see a difference in the pictures. In person there's a huge difference. My breast are swollen plus they are wrapped tight inside of the surgical wrap that I'm wearing.

    1. I think the recovery is going really well for me. The doctor said I should be done with my pain meds by the end of the week. That's the only thing that's preventing me from driving. I'm only sore and that will go away in a few days also. I think I will be happy with the final results in a few weeks.
