Thank you, jJennifer! I'm still in hospital but I'm being sent home sometime this afternoon. The pain isn't bad, but then again asked for morphine last night so maybe that's still working it's magic. Just been given more antibiotics and I've no drains. All in all everyone seems pleased with my progress although I've been sick a few times because of the drugs. I'll let youu know in a few weeks how I'm doing, maybe once I've seen  Mr Tadros for a check-up. Just wanted to add that all the staff at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary have been great!

Congratualtions Heather yahoo  so pleased all has gone well babe. The injection in your stomach was just because you weren't moving around and helps against the risk of DVT.

Happy healing now sweetheart and do let us know how your healing goes. Xx

Re: Tubular breasts on the NHS...

Thanks for the lovely messages, ladies! I'm back home and resting until my one-week check up with my surgeon on Friday. I'm taking my antibiotics and my painkillers religiously and getting plenty of bedrest. Everything seems to be going smoothly, I'm not even in that much pain (though that could just be the drugs). 
Honestly, though, I'm having the worst time getting to sleep sitting up! I've built a sort of pillow fort but my bottom still gets so sore thatI ooften have to get up and walk about the house at night. Any tips?
I'm also going crazy trying not to scratch my itchy dressings. I've checked and there's no seeping or infection but some of the surgical tape has rolled up under my sports bra and is driving me crazy!  

Other than all that things are going suspiciously well, so I just wanted to ask how long till I can sleep on my side again and what can I expect in the next few weeks? How are you all progressing on your boobie journeys? xx

Its GOUNG to be at least 2 weeks till you can start side sleeping Heather. And that's not a given babe... Some women do take longer depending on healing.

For your pillow fort are you using:

Just one pillow or two, depending on what's most comfortable for you, plus your V-pillow. (No need to be 'sitting up' only head and shoulders need to be raised above chest height')

A pillow under each arm to support your arms

A pillow under your knees to take pressure away from your back and stop you slipping down the bed

A rolled towel placed into the small of your back.

You'll create a sort of comfy armchair in creating this pillow fort, but its what seems to work best to get our ladies comfy.

The itching is awful. Some ladies find using a anti-histamine helps, others find just using ice packs sat over tops of your boobs helps to make the entire boob cold including the itchy area (don't ever put ice near your incisions)

Where the tape is that's annoying you, try using a panty liner or sanitary towel (sticky side against your bra) to act as a cushion between skin and bra. It really does help babe.


More things you may have problems with, you might find in this thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Heather.


Really great that you're home now hun with all your home comforts. Nice walks in the fresh air will do you the world of good also now if you feel up to it and.... Happy healing! Xx
