I had my follow up with my plastic surgeon this morning and thankfully, he removed both of my drains. He is very happy with the way everything looks.
I can drive now, but I still can’t return to work. I can’t exercise. I can’t lift anything more than 10 pounds. I can’t lift my arms over my head. But I can take a shower without having to worry about those stinkin’ drains getting in the way!
I see him again on Monday to have my stitches removed and then I can go back to work.
I have to wear a supportive bra 24/7. Right now I’m wearing a post-surgical bra that they gave me at the hospital. After my shower tonight, I will try on some of my other bras to find the most comfortable ones and to figure out if I really am the same size. 🙂
Now I will enjoy the rest of my week at home.
P.S. I did work for about an hour today from home and it was more comfortable than being at the office.
