Hi, ChristineH - I’m so happy that your pain has come back down to a more manageable level. I hope you keep on doing what I used to say to my little dog: “Heal!” And, I hope those pain levels just keep on reducing.
I’m now 2 weeks out of surgery and healing very well. I have only 1 out of 4 drains left. I’m sure it will be taken out within the week if I behave.
Recovery is slow, due to my back - I guess humans are not meant to lose a 4” strip of back muscle, top to bottom of our back. It’s just mending itself. My breast is doing really well. No pain per say. It’s amazing to be getting on with 2 Tylenols per day instead of 8 Percocets.
Overall, this surgery was a big success and I’m very happy with it 😀
