Ha Ha! I knew the bug would catch! I cleaned the downstairs and FINALLY got hubby and daughter upstairs to paint rest of bathroom ceiling and clean upstairs. I stayed up until 1a.m. to pick up daughter so am absolutely exhausted now. So watching film "Cool Runnings" which is filmed in Calgary! 

It is a funny film. Then Frozen. Got that xmas feeling now.

It can affect some people that way I believe,I was the other way round, needed bigger bras. Do you have a contact number for the hospital where you had the surgery? It might be worth checking, just to set your mind at rest.

From what i can remember I was swollen. Think just depends where they cut you and we all ready differently like rileyroo said. Just do the exercises and anything you don't feel comfortable with ring your nurse. Xmas is coming up so perhaps a call today would be a good idea depending on how you feel. You're one step further so keep warm, rest and eat healthily. I think my nurse told me to ensure I wore a very supportive bra on as much as I can after op. Hope it improves.

Hello ladies. Hope you all have had a good day with your loved ones and have enjoyed it in good spirits.

Today I have also reflected on the here and now and how incredibly lucky I truly am to have people to love and who love and care for me. I feel complete with my son here and have had an amazing day with my 2 kids and hubby. A truly magical day and feel very blessed.

Take care ladies coz we rock and we got this!

Can only second that, and remember that some of those that were on the site when we arrived, confused, unsure and angry are no longer here. My thoughts are with their families and friends also.

Sorry to butt in but I wondered if anyone had heard from Chrissie.  She was so nice to me when I first started to post and I keep telling myself that she has hopefully gone on a nice sun-filled holiday but I confess to worrying because she has not posted for a while.  I realise it is a bit of a cheek for a newbie to ask about someone's personal life but well I just wanted to know she was okay.  Feel free to get this post deleted and/or send me a message telling me whatever you want to say in reply.
