Hi I’m 4 mpo from BA/BL. I would say recovery isn’t too bad. Just a lot of soreness and pressure. You may feel a weird vibration or like shock/pinches that’s normal. Nipples will be super sensitive so I used nipple cream (for when breastfeeding) it helped some. I took my pain meds the first 2 days and then after that I only used them at night in conjunction with my muscle relaxer to help sleep better. I went back to work 4 days post op and it wasn’t bad at all. I felt more like myself about 2 weeks after minus lifting things. Everyone is different just take your time and listen to your body.
One thing I will say is when you see your incisions don’t be alarmed and give them time to heal!
Congratulations! I’m excited for you! I had my BA/BL a week ago and I totally agree with the ladies above. The first couple days can be a bit rough, but the tightness was the worst for me, no incision pain. I only had pain meds, no muscle relaxers...and also was able to quit taking them a couple days after...but I was also instructed to do arm raises (just out in front and up slowly) and I have had no issues with arms and moving around...I feel great for being a week out. Just do as your PS tells ya and listen to your body I think is the best. My kiddos are a bit older so I’m thinking for you if yours are little just take it easy on the picking them up and stuff and protect your incisions for a few. I also iced the mess out of them...that helped a lot with the swelling. I also slept in a recliner with a neck pillow...was able to get up and down better that way. You’re going to do great!! I’m happy for you!
