I guess I'm just trying to figure out more of what to expect following my LBL and BL on Saturday. How easy will it be for me to get in and out of the car? Am I better to try and go home in my mini van or Toyota Carolla? Will my first few days at home be spent in my recliner, or will I be moving around a bit more than that? Will I be able to go upstairs?
Will I be able to have someone wash my hair under the kitchen sink a few days post op, or will I just have to live with really dirty, greasy hair for the first week or so? Is the dry shampoo really helpful?
I purchased some scrubs type pants/tops for easy dressing and I have some yoga capri pants as well, but will I even be able to put on the pants with the drains and such?
When I saw one plastic surgeon, he said no lifting of my arms above chest level for 2-4 weeks, but my surgeon has said that as I can tolerate more, I will be able to do more, and the rules are not hard and fast.
I know that everyone is different in their healing, but I'm just trying to get a mental idea of what to expect post surgery. Most of these questions are probably pretty redundant, and I've been reading several pages back, but I'm not really seeing these types of things asked or answered.
