No problem - glad you got out and about today. You always think that people are looking at your boobs but in actual fact they aren't. Wearing ear rings is another good way of deflecting them 😉
Your sausage shape squishy item doesn't sound like my seromas, mine were really painful. If you are still in a lot of pain you could ask for Tramadol or Dihydrocodiene - I prefer the 2nd one personally. I have never had a C section so can't work out how big your scar is. My recon was LD flap and small implant, and last month I got a new nipple. I am still on painkillers for that but only at night. If you can't get comfy in bed I can highly recommend a V shaped pillow.
Let us know what the BCN says, and PM me if you want any more advice.

Did you have any recon with the Mx? It seems very early to get your dressings off. Mine were on for longer than that. I didn't want to look at the wound when I was in hospital but made myself do it as soon as I got home. I think the sooner you do it the better - although it is hard. My hospital supplied soft bras to come home in, cotton front fastening ones. I then wore pull on bras from Asda. Is the swelling where you think there is a seroma sort of pointy and squishy? Mine was like a mini boob at the side. Getting a seroma drained is pretty sore, and you can try to put some heat on it to help, like a covered hot water bottle for example. I think you need to phone your Breast Care Nurse to get some answers to all of your questions. It does seem as if you have been discharged without any advice at all. I had seroma drained twice, and basically I got it done when I couldn't stand it any longer!
I feel I haven't really offered you any real answers but I would definitely phone up tomorrow for some specific answers and ask them whether you need to go back to get the seroma dealt with. The swelling may not be due to that at all. Are you still taking painkillers?
