hello! I had bmx with tissue expanders placed on 5/12. At my last visit with ps he gave me the ok to start running in 2 weeks!! :) My question is about support. My tissue expanders feel huge! and bounce when I walk. I can't imagine running with them but really want to get back out there. I'm hoping things will feel a bit more settled in 2 weeks and this won't be an issue. I wear a light sports. I have tried to wear tighter sports bras (I have a whole drawer of them that don't fit anymore. Ugh) but that really hurts. If anyone else has been through this or something similar I'd love to hear your remedy. Thanks

You're only one month post exchange. Wow. Every doc is different, but I'd make sure to wear those really tight, confining bras for now.
