Exercise after breast reduction- your experience?
I'm having an oncoplastic reduction in 2 days, about a week after a lumpectomy. I feel like recovery from the lumpectomy was fairly easy but I know the reduction will be a bigger surgery. I'm moving from a 38G to a C or D.
I'm curious to hear stories of similar recoveries. I have a vacation planned about 2.5 weeks post surgery. My surgeon feels like it is doable, barring any complications. I won't be super active, but resting on a beach with friends is better than being in the cold and snow. I'm overweight, but active, playing sports and walking 3-5x/week.
How did you feel 2.5 weeks past surgery? Will I be able to manage the airport? I know I won't be swimming but can I walk the beach for 30 minutes? Or should I postone this trip?
