Post surgery pics

I wanted to update folks on my surgery again. I know there are a few folks interested in seeing and leaning more about the process of my top surgery. On the 26th of Feb. I had top surgery (bilateral, with nipple grafts) with Dr. Kuzon (University of Michigan Hospital).

I had drains in for about a week and had my first follow up appointment today. I got the drains out, got the bolsters of my nipples and some of the stitches and bandages/tape removed. The doctor thinks that everything so far looks good. My chest is still very very swollen and pretty painful (although the exhilaration of seeing it for the first time definitely helps). I will still need to come back in a month, wrap with bandages, cover the nipples to help them heal. I also had to order another compression vest and will be wearing that for about 6 weeks or more.

I still can't believe how flat I feel. :)

I will be resting at home the rest of the week, feel free to drop me a line....

OKAY and now for the pics. Not the for the faint of heart. The real deal. One week after surgery. A lot of swelling will go down and this will probably look a lot different in a few weeks.
