Day 5 post op! Yeah they were just too big so I may go again with smaller but I seem to have a pattern of reactions to surgery. The PS said that my left side had an immediate reaction to the removal and that is why it is so swollen. It really didn't get super swollen until 24+ hours post op though. It has gone down some but my left side is pretty big and I have a nice bruise under my eye. My right side has just a tiny bit of swelling. It was a tough decision for removal but I should have been more involved in the the sizing. It was just too much. Some people didn't recognize me at first and that, combined with the one side appearing much larger, were enough reasons for a removal. It has been quite an ordeal and lots of $$$$. While I was knocked out the PS asked my wife about why I was set on removal. He commented that when he puts in smaller implants people complain and want bigger ones. This seems like bad communication. It might have been successful had it just not been so drastic (IMO of course).
I am using a pineapple extract pill form and arnica (sp?) pills and creams too. That is good to know about the pineapple juice not really working due to processing - we bought a bunch and then figured out that might be the case.
I have some more days of before back to work. I am not looking forward to people seeing me with another interesting change to my face! I might still have a nice black eye still. Oh well it is done. I really needed to hear people's experiences when I was going through all this so I am hoping people can use my experiences too. Thanks for the reply la_angel
