About one week before you are scheduled for your surgery you need to start getting things together and plan ahead for life after surgery. The first week after your breast implants, you are going to experience a lot of pain. Planning ahead will help make your life easier. Trust me! If you listen to me and follow these tips, you will be thank you that you did. If you don’t you will regret it and know why I recommended the following:
Find articles of clothing that are easy to wear and that do not require you to pull over your head. You are going to have problems lifting your arms. Lay out those clothes. Gather bottles of water, juice, soda, and whatever else you like and put them in your bedroom. Buy so simple snacks and put those in your room. Take anything that you might need in high places and place them in easy to get to locations.
Clean your home and do all the things that you need to do prior to surgery. You are not going to be able to take advantage of your time off to heal. You are going to be in a lot of pain and the only thing that you are going to want to do is to sleep and take pain killers.
Buy ample tissue paper, paper towels, and place them in your bathroom. Gather your extra pillows and towels. It’s going to hurt to lay down and to sleep in any position. The extra pillows and towels will create support around your body to basically keep it still. You are going to want to sleep in a upward position. Kind alike sitting in bed because it is going to hurt too much to get out of bed to lay down. It also helps to keep the swelling down to not lay down flat.
Consider sleeping in a big crazy boy chair.
Find someone to stay with you during the first week after surgery. You are going to need their help for even the littlest of things, like going to the bathroom. So make sure it’s a close friend or family member of the same sex. Buy frozen food or microwavable food. You won’t have much of an appetite in the beginning but once you do, you won’t be able to cook. Like I said you are going to be in a lot of pain, its going to hurt to move around, it’s going to hurt to do anything.
After about a week the pain will demise and life will be bearable again. The amount of pain that you will experience will vary with each person and the type of implant procedure that you get and the size of the implants.
