Well, I am officially out of my compression bra. I went to go by new pretty ones but still can only wear ones without underwire because I had developed big holes and they had to be packed so it irritates my scars. As of now I am a 36 c and he thinks it may go down a little bit more when the swelling subsides. I have bought all new shirts because none of my old ones fit. I am super happy :)

My body rejected the dissolvable stitches so they had to dig them out. I also had the pocket holes and I had to have them packed with bandages twice a day for about 1 month. My surgery was on Aug 23. I was in my compression bra for what seemed like forever because of all of my holes.

so glad to hear your doing good. sorry about having to deal with the holes. you dont find the regular bra irritates underneath? i bought a fun bra wire free and it irritates me. i am still wearing the support bra. my doc said i have to wear it still til my next follow up which is nov 9. i bought some tops and a dress that i dont have to wear a bra at all and i am loving it. my sis in law gave me some tops that dont fit her right now so i have been wearing them. they fit great. not all big and baggie. thank god for plastic surgeons! LOL...

funny you mention dissolvable stitches. The other day I was scratching and this thing that looks like a plastic staple pops out! I was like ummmm, was this supposed to happen. Called the PS and the nurse didn't know what I was talking about. Turned out its supposed to be a dissolvable staple. I'm sorry you had the complications

Ohh sounds kind of painful, hopefully everything is good now. I had a hole develop under my nipple ( I think from overdoing it.) and I didn't have to pack it, but did have to clean it twice a day and fill it with Neosporin. Like it's been said, it is funny how each PS is so different.
