5 days post OP
« on: June 16, 2015, 08:23:33 PM »
I am 5 days post OP, i had a minor case of gyno and very very little lipo done as i dont have much fat on me and just minor lumps.

My question is, post OP i felt very little pain even without pain killers and the swelling/bruising was extremely minimal, this leads me to believe that my body tends to heal quite quickly, HOWEVER the downside of this it seems my body has formed scar tissue faster (only my left pec, coincidentally the one which had larger gland) my right side is perfectly flat with no scar tissue *fingers crossed*

On my left pec surrounding the nipple (not under it, under my nipple is completely flat, maybe even indented which im 100% ok with) seems to have scar tissue in the exact same spot the gyno was (minus under the nipple)

Could it be possible i have formed scar tissue this early on? I honestly dont notice/feel any swelling bruising or discomfort.

Thank you guys.

Give it time before you jump to any conclusion as full recovery takes time! Be happy that you have no or little pain!
I'd rather be hated for who I am, then loved for who I'm not!

I am who I am,  and I'm not going to change to please anyone!

It is virtually impossible for scar tissue to form in five days.  What you may be seeing/feeling may be residual gland and/or swelling (which can be remarkably firm as well).

Suggest abundant patience to allow for everything to settle down before you leap to any conclusions.
