Day 2 post op

Post by Boobiesplease! on 31st October 2015, 9:34 am

Morning ladies,
Today I have much more use of my arms and had an amazing sleep (I'm a bit of an insomniac so I think the cocodamol made me sleepy because I slept 9 hours) anyway this morning my arms seem much more mobile but my chest has swollen and my collar bone feels super bruised. Just wanted to check that it's normal to be bruised that high up really. 

Thanks :)

The bruising will be full torso, from your collar to the bottom of your ribs. Makes you wonder what they do to you in there! But its all normal. Keep on top of your pain meds and get as much sleep as you can :)

Not laying flat when sleeping helps with the swelling, I stayed on back at angle for 4/5 weeks and my bruising and swelling was minimal. Happy healing xx

I'm sleeping propped up but I haven't needed any pain meds today since about 11am. My collar bone feels much better today, I'm a little bit bruised along my crease where the incisions are but fine otherwise x

The main bit that's hurting is the tape on my incisions itching me. Does anyone know if I can take my strap off for say half an hour this evening. It's really irritating and a bit restricting and I'd like to feel free for a few minutes lol!

You shouldn't really take it off. How long have you been told to wear it for? I had mine on for 6wks, so obviously got to take it off for showers after the first week. But if he's only got you in it for a week (as some do), then you really need to have it on full time...Maybe take it off, slather yourself in moisturiser, keeping clear of the incisions, and find some nice soft socks that you can cut the toes off and thread through to make it a bit more comfy.

My instructions at the moment say 3-6 weeks. I took it off for five mins and then put it back on again. Maaaaan it felt good whist it was off. I think it's uncomfortable because it's pushing my boob down which means the bottom band of the macom rolls up and rubs on my incisions. I've put a load of cotton wool pads around there.

Totally different area of wound but when healing my c-section incision I used the cheap thick Sani pads, made undies and clothes so much more comfortable, you could cut one in half for a bit more padding xx
