Revision Surgery Day!

 This morning I am undergoing my breast revision surgery!
For those of you who missed my last mastectomy update: basically, after my exchange surgery my left implant slipped out of the pocket (that was created during my expander fills) and as a result noticeably sits lower than my right implant. Anyway, Matt and I had my pre-op consultation last week, picked out some new implants and the doctor gave me strict orders to not lift anything over 10 lbs again (specifically the kiddos), clean, cook, blah, blah, blah for FOUR weeks which is a super huge pain but necessary to avoid another surgery. Basically, I can’t do anything that engages my pectoral muscles while I heal because they keep the implants in place.

The surgery is a quick outpatient procedure and recovery should be a breeze (minus the lifting restriction). However, my biggest, biggest, BIGGEST fear is that I may wake up with a drain on
the left side. The doctor says it’s a 50/50 chance but he won’t know if it’s necessary until he gets in there. So pretty please say a prayer for me that I make it out drain-free this morning! I’ll keep you updated on Instagram!

    Praying for you! I hate boob drains, too. I didn't have to deal with nearly the amount you did from your one surgery, but I did have one for 3 weeks after a breastfeeding issue 🙁 I even had it while I was MOH in my sister's wedding. Ugh I hate boob drains.
