I had a double mastectomy on Tuesday. Came home next day. My amazing husband has make sure that I stay ahead of the pain. I was send home with a pain blocker and I will keep it until tomorrow. I am curious about what to expect. Has anyone else experience this? How was the pain after the port was removed?

Hi Grisol, no didn't have a pain blocker just had ibuprofen and paracetamol and a supply when I came home (had my mastectomies at different times though)... am intrigued through, what kind of port? do you mean the drains? I had great relief when mine were taken out ☺️..
Hope you're recovering well...
My pills were longer lasting than my drip! I stopped using anything stronger than paracetamol after about a week. This is just how I felt, and am thankful for my continued recovery! Rest! Accept all of your husband's help- I think I mopped my floors four days after coming home but I don't recommend that at all!! Feel better!!x
