My surgery was at One Hatfield on 08/11/19, I got the train to the hospital alone and was so relieved when I arrived to meet friendly nurses who showed me to my room. The room was really lovely, super clean and comfortable and had the bonus of Netflix to get me through my overnight stay!
One Hatfield were exceptional throughout my entire stay, I am a needle phobe and I have never been under general anaesthetic but they eased any worries I had. I walked into a little room that had my theatre bed in and was told to hop in and relax whilst the anaesthetist got his stuff sorted, he gave me a pre med which made me feel so chilled out and the next thing I remember is waking up in a recovery section of the hospital to the voices of my nurses saying that they wanted to let me sleep some more. It turns out I was in recovery for 2 hours! Not because anything was wrong but because there was no rush to return me to my room, they just let me snooze with my new boobs.
The second picture was taken later in the evening following my surgery, about 9 hours after when I couldn’t sleep. You can see how high the implants are sitting and also how swollen my body is on my rib cage at the side of my boobs. All completely normal and to be expected! My Lipoelastic bra was extremely comfortable despite being so swollen.
The nurses checked on me every 30 minutes for the entire evening following my surgery to check my ops and if I wanted another brew. One Hatfield were amazing. My blood pressure was so low but that’s normal for me but that meant I got extra treats to eat from the staff to try and get it up a bit - sadly I had zero appetite so barely ate a thing but I did drink them out of water and tea.
