Hi,


I had my reduction on 12/23 and will be 4 weeks post-op this coming Tuesday. Guess what I still have some staples. My left breast is healing ok but the right one is giving me trouble probably because I use that arm more than the other. I also have an open wound on that side. I have a 5 and 2 year old and I have yet to try and pick up the 2 yr old. So my suggestion would be to wait before you try to pick up any children for as long as your ps tells you because you don't want to risk any of the wounds opening up and just take it easy. I didn't have any help really with my kids. I had someone that kept them for about 4 days after my surgery but that really wasn't long enough. So take advantage of the 2 weeks your mother is there so you won't over work yourself and even after she's gone still be very careful.
