Out of hospital today following DIEP and reduction last Thursday. It is so good to be back home and in my own bed. I have to admit that it was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done but I would do it again (although I might not have said that at 6am on Saturday morning when I was at my lowest due to no sleep and not having been out of bed in a room with a tropical temp and with me having continual hot flushes).
I can't stop looking down at my cleavage and loving it. DIEP side looking a wee bit larger than the reduced side but not going to worry about that as will take a couple of months for it to all settle down before any 'touch ups'.
Lisa- I have been preparing myself for a year for the surgery with weight loss, Pilates and running and whilst nursing staff say I have done really well, I get tired after each burst of activity needing an afternap this afternoon. Whilst i want to get back to normal as soon as possible i am so grateful for my husband being around the next week to look after me and the kids.
