Hey everyone. I am new to the site, though I must say you all seem great on here!!! Well I am scheduled to have my surgery May 31st this year. I am having the TUBA method over the muscle with saline. I am going from a 34 A to a 34 D. I was looking for feedback from people who have had this procedure done before. There isn't much info on the procedure from girls who have experienced it.
I know there will be some pain involved of course and that things will be awkward for awhile. Though I wondered what everyone found as far as things like bruising around the navel, pain, and things like this.
Also I know I am crazy but here's what My husband and I are planning. I have plane ticket vouchers that I have to use by June 10th. I took the time of the 31 st to june 7th off to recover from my surgery. I was thinking of taking a low key trip from the 2nd to the 6th. I figured it would give me 2 days to get used to things a bit and figure out how to control the pain. Based on experience, what is your take on this. I am not planning on anythign crazy, just somewhere I can walk around a bit, and relax. I am just worried because I really don't know what to expect. It seems everything I have seen is girls who have either had their BA done by a different method or had implants under the muscle. Any feedback would be appriated! Thanks!
I am sorry I cannot help with experience with the TUBA method, but I hope someone will post soon who can help you.
Regarding the travel. I personally would not enjoy traveling that early, however, some people actually plan travel early like that as they prefer to be away somewhere relaxing and different as they get through those early days. Not something you can do with a lot of surgeries, and usually it is more for facial type things (nose, FL, etc). However, if you had no complications and your doctor said you could, I don't see why not.
I would be worried about things like being bumped in the airport, or sitting in the seats even. So you want to be careful. Of course no lifting or pulling your bag, and most likely no reaching, etc. Literally TAKING IT EASY!
But, that said, this is up to your doctor. Some doctors do not want their patients flying so close to surgery, due to blood clots. Yet,that said, many people travel to have their surgery and they often fly back home between a week to 3 weeks after, depending on the aftercare required and post op doctor visits.
Thanks for the reply!!! Hmmm yea alot to consider. Maybe I will wait and do a last minute trip if I feel up to it. I Have my surgery on a Thursday and I was planning to leave Saturday. I will ask my doctor about it, and kinda see how I feel. Thanks for the words of wisdom
If you are able to do a last minute trip, that's the way to go. Leave it up til the time and then figure out if you are up to it or not. Make sure to have all preparations done prior to surgery though, because you just won't feel like doing them afterwards. Then if you get to the time and feel you want to go, you can (if doctor allows). If not, then not.
One never knows how they are going to heal and you'd hate to feel you had to go on the trip if you weren't up to it.
Good luck and please let us know how your surgery goes and what you decide regarding the trip. Win win situation no matter what. After all, you will have a new and improved set of girls and those alone will make you very happy!
Hi there---I had TUBA-placed implants a couple of years ago, and I travelled for an unexpected funeral about two weeks after surgery with no problem...mine are under-the-muscle, which is supposedly more painful for healing than over-the-muscle, I think you'll be fine. Not sure why your doc would be doing over-the-muscle though if you're starting with A cup, you might want to double-check with him/her on that...
