How long would you say that it took for 80-90% of your swelling to go away? Was it mostly gone within the first 2 weeks? or longer?


Bambu, I already know about your situation, so the question goes out to anyone else.
Thanks,

I didn't really have swelling, but I had lots of bruising. It was pretty much gone after 2 and 1/2 weeks. It's about a month and 1/2 since my op and there's still some slight pain with the scar tissue behind the nipple, but only when I lie on my stomach really.

Hi Raven,

I believe we had the surgery on the same day (Oct 5).

How are you holding up?  I'm still pretty swollen too...Can't wait to stop wearing the tensor wrap.  The swelling sometimes condenses in one area...

Hey Fourrings
Yes indeed we did.

The tensor wrap is not really bothering me, it's sleeping on my back everyday that bothers me.. lol

Im holding up ok, I really hope that I still have swelling, because if thats the case, then I know it will still go down some.

So how much swelling do you think that you still have?
I mean in a percentage figure?
I feel like 90% of my swelling is gone now.

I'm not to sure on a percentage, but I am still swollen and my chest is really hard.  I've actually managed to start sleeping on my side lately.  As for the swelling, I'm pretty flat, but I can still feel it and when I bend down it all kind of droops.  Do you have this as well?

I stopped swelling after a week, but my chest was still not stable. Like when I tried to run across a street I could feel it bounce up and down--that hurt. After 1 month I started jogging, but I was a relatively mild case.

I'm 3 months post op and my chest feels and looks almost normal.
