Ice or no Ice?
I even had like 5 ice packs in the hospital that I kept filled on a regular basis and I just rotated them out. THere was no such thing as 20 minutes on! :-)
I may have had a few extra potholes along the way, but the journey has been good!

The surgery center sent me home with a list that said ice was okay. I haven't needed it for my TT, but it actually helps with the itching, tingling and swelling on my breasts.
I am two weeks out of my TT also and I have been lucky to not have alot of swelling there. I am not sure if I am just lucky or if its because of the drain or that I wear my compression garment all the time. I hope my luck continues with that, but wish the swelling in my breasts would go down.
