Hello. I had a question for the ladies of FS that have had breast augmentation. I am scheduled to have it done on September 21st, and I have been pretty neurotic about working out 5-6 times a week for almost a year now. I'm getting a little nervous about having to take some time off after surgery, and I was wondering how soon after surgery you were able to start being active again? How long after surgery were you able to run again? I'd like to start training for a half marathon sometime in November, but I don't want to push it. Thanks in advance!

I was back walking after a few days, jogging about 2-3 weeks later, and boxing after 6 weeks. Had to wait longer before doing push-ups and such. Wear the band your doctor will give you to hold them down when you run, and buy a very supportive sports bra. I like LuLuLemon Ta-Ta Tamer and The Bust Stops Here bras. Good luck with the surgery and the marathon!

Thanks so much! She had mentioned that I could start to walk on the treadmill a few days post-op. I have a really bad habit of doing too much too soon, so I wanted to see what other people's experience has been afterwards. My pre-op is tomorrow, super excited!

Gotta tell you: it was pretty hard to get back in the exercise wagon after the surgery. But I did, eventually. Since I got mine, I wear two bras and have worn three while jogging! Keep 'em cosy! LOL

Listen to your doctors "orders" and do not push it. The last thing you want is for the stitches to tear and your implants to drop down below the muscle. You would need another surgery to fix it, and it is ugly. Trust me! Take it easy and just take care of yourself. There are plenty of marathons out there. I wouldn't train for one just two months after surgery. My 2 cents.

checking Weight
I weigh every day when I get up, after using the toilet, but before taking my thyroxine. I have nothing but underwear on when I weigh in.
