I'be only just found this post again. Thank you ladies for posting.
Browneyes-well done for your fantastic weightloss and getting fitter. Only 1 more week for you now. Good luck and please let us know how you get on xx
Petal5- Thank you for your reassurance. I have heard that some ladies have been advised not to do anything at all for 2 weeks and then start dusting only and build it up from there. It's really good to hear that you managed to potter around, thank you xx
Pocahontas-thank you for your kind words. Wishing you the best of luck with your diep too. We'll both have a cleavage for Christmas Xx
Nonsuch-is all of your surgery finished now? Will you have a nipple tattoo? Thank you for offering to share your hospital list and other ladies experiences, I will take you up on your offer and pm you, thanks xx
I feel so lucky to be having this op in October. I finished radio on 15th Sept last year and was told I would have to wait at a years year. My breast surgeon referred me to my PS to get me on the waiting list ASAP in the hope that by the time I got to the top of the waiting list, the year would be up. It has worked out perfectly for me. How long do you think I will need off work. Do you think 8 weeks is about right?
My PS said the scar on my tummbe will be quite high because of where my blood vessels are and that my scar on the new boob will also be high because if where my mx scar is. Has anyone used kelacote gel or equivalent. I think it's a silicon type gel and is supposed to help the appearance of scars.
I have decided to decorate my bedroom. It's looking a bit tatty and if I'm going to be recovering in it for a number of weeks, I would like it tnil oil nice and fresh.
Thanks again for posting ladies, I hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend!
