Hi folks,

Had my surgery on the 28.10.09 ( 2 days ago)! at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, sitting here in my compression vest and bandaged scared to move, All went well the surgeon Mr Watson was FANTASTIC, he saw me after i came round and told me he removed roughly  half a pound of fat from each breast and that he weas very pleased it went well, unlike the anestatist who apparently after i drifted off i was violently sick , i fasted from 8 pm the previous night he put this down to being anxious, i had to have an xray to ensure nothing was in my lungs and i was intubated throughout the procedure, i am just taking it easy, slight pain yeah more uncomfortable, am lying on about three pillows at night to higher myself up, is this ok, am bathing daily and keeping the compression vest on night and day, to go back on Thursday for dressings to be changed but i can tell you O.M.F.G  WHAT A DIFFERENCE, i look in the mirror :), as you do, i need to get shot of the hunch walk, a nurse clocked it right away, just findin the new me, early doors but on the whole i pleased and prob still under anestetic, xcuse ramblin!! any suggestions post op care it would be really helpful  Thanks this site and the support i've recived has been amazin Thanks :D

Hi mate,

Glad it all went well. The feeling is incredible, isn't it? You'll lose the 'hunch' walk quicker than you may think - i think i stopped doing it after 2 weeks! It's just the mind adjusting to the new body ;)

Did you just have lipo done or gland too?

Grab the moisturiser, where i had the lipo i have found the skin to be dry.
