Yay! So glad all is well! I'm excited for you. I have to ask though... Big panties? You are smaller? And if you are comfortable I'd love to see pics (you can inbox)

You aren't allowed to have any constriction near the incision so I bought size 7 Hanes briefs. Normally I wear size 6 bikinis. My doctor said it would ideal to have less constricting waist band so I bought size 8 briefs. They are pretty big hahaha but just for a few weeks until I am better healed. I will inbox you my pics

Yes I wear a binder with a foam pad underneath. It's kind of like a giant ace bandage and goes from right under my boobs down to my hips.

It's not so bad but I'm a little sad I can't really start wear form fitting stuff til it's gone since it's bulky.

Tuesday I go back to work but I am planning to work a half day, maybe a little longer. I have been taking 2-3 naps during the day.

I am trying to go from the Norco pain med to Tylenol only today
