Running Post-Breast Augmentation

By: Jessica Azar Three days ago, on Monday, I went for my first run after having my implants placed. Running Post-Breast Augmentation is new territory for me… not too many articles online about it and no close friends who have braved it that I can ask. It was exactly one month to the day after I had the surgery… and although the Doctor had cleared me too for a run a week prior to this, I was still nervous about how it would feel… would I be sore? Would I feel like I had two waterbeds on my chest gurgling around? Would I have sharp pain of any kind? I also was concerned about how well I would be able to run after taking another month off from exercising… I had finally gotten back in the swing of running at the end of January, following a month-long hiatus due to lack of motivation and other things. Anytime I ever have to get started again, I always doubt myself…I doubt whether I will still be able to run as well as I did when I stopped running… and how badly my endurance has been affected. I worry that I wont get…

Breast Augmentation Update… Ready to Run

By: Jessica Azar I’ve had several emails and messages from readers asking about his I’m feeling and recovering from my March 7,2014 Breast Augmentation surgery, so I thought I would post an update! Thank you so much to all of you who have asked… I really appreciate the support! I’m feeling great… No problems so far (praying it stays that way) and I’m getting used to the new “additions”. I’m proud to report that the Squeaky Boob Syndrome has gone away! Can’t say I miss it… To read about my journey and decision-making process on getting breast augmentation, read this post: To Boob or Not to Boob My recovery has been an easy one… And at my last post-op check in, my doctor told me that I can attempt an easy jog to see how if my body is ready for exercise yet. I’ve decided that I’m going to wait until April 7th to go for a run, even though I currently feel fine and have jogged around the house some to see if the movement is uncomfortable at all. Thankfully it has felt just fine. It’s going to be interesting actually NEED a sportsbra for support rather than an…

Just Call Me Squeaky Boob… No one Warned me!

So sorry I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do this week! I’m happy to say that physically, in terms of pain and soreness, I was basically back to normal. The areas near the incisions itch a bit, as they are healing, and I have a bit of stiffness in the area where my new additions were built. The only truly rough, difficult side-effect of having had the surgery is that I am EXHAUSTED. Like… All of the time. It’s almost as bad as early pregnancy tiredness, where I just can NOT keep my eyes open and I have zero energy. My not not being able to exercise is also affecting my energy level, and it’s also been messing with my delicate bipolar emotional scale as well. But I think I made the absolute best decision for me, personally, on deciding to have the surgery. My doctor did a fantastic job… I love the way that I look and the way that it balances out my figure. Clothing now fits me much better, and even though they’re taking some getting used to, I can say without hesitation that this has been a positive experience. Another adjustment in having…
