Well today,,12 days after breast surgery, I managed to drive into town and bought an extra high impact sports bra in M&S in the hopes that it would holed everything still and enable me to run (before the surgery I had completed week 8 and I'm totally frustrated). Having completed four 5km walks last week, I thought I would start again with week 1.
All I can say is that running with your hand clasped to your chest is not the best style of running, but the only way I could even contemplate 1 minute without being in excruciating pain - this was despite dosing up with paracetamol and ibuprofen 20 mins before setting off. I don't know what the people on the golf course though but I don't really care, as I managed all of the runs, and managed to complete 5k in 37.07 minutes (which is my best time since the op).
I just wondered if anyone else had a similar experience and how they overcame it.
