I was wheeled into theatre at 9.15am and woke in recovery at 2.00pm. As I'm allergic to Morphine, they gave me OxyCodone....and guess what? Allergy. Became itchy so they gave me Phenergan, which made me super drowsy on top of the anaesthetic. Endone is also a no no for me now, as its in the same group as OxyCodone, so Tramadol is my new drug.
Surgeon came late last night to check up on me and discuss the surgery. My left breast was bigger than my right. To me they looked the same, but he knows. He said approx 500gm of skin and tissue was taken from the left breast and approx 350gm from the right. I certainly didn't expect that much to be cut away.
Nurse only took three photos during the op and they're not as gory as the tummy tuck ones lol.
I go back Tuesday for my first post op review. Until then, I shower with the supportive bra 24/7 for a week.
Once I get a proper look at my new boobs, I'll post an update...depends if they look decent though 😕
