Bra after surgery?



Recommended Posts

I used some gauze for a while (or a really wide bandaid). Hope it feels better soon !

One of my incisions is right at my bra line. I didn't realize they did them there. Anyway, I've worn a sports bra and that was comfortable. Tonight I tried on a regular bra & it didn't rub the incision but I think I'm going to stick with the sports bra a little longer. The incision at the bra line is infected.

When I put on my regular bra tonight I was shocked at all the extra fabric in the cups. They have really shrunk!

I wore sports bras, or loose wireless bras (fortunately the weightloss in the first week make the cami bra fit well). I am 3 weeks post op and still struggle with a bra all day and at the end of the day I go home and put on a sports tank top with bra support. It's helped tremendously.

I said the heck with it and didn't wear one for 2 weeks. I also had carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand 2 weeks post-op. Dug out a front hook and managed to get it closed one handed lol

Same here! I bought bra with no under wires. That helped. I am now 21 days out and lost a total of 22 lbs. I guess I'm losing a lbs x day rate. I'll take that over not losing nothing at all. Hope everyone is having a great experience this far?

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
