Episode 33: Recovery & return to exercise post explant
Some of the most common questions I’ve been asked since sharing that I had my breast implants removed 2.5 months ago is, “what is recovery like?” ”How do you feel?” “How was returning to exercise?” I cover these questions and themes in this episode. There’s a lot of fear around surgery because of the recovery process. It can be intimidating and hard to know what to expect, from the early weeks (navigating wound care and swelling), to easing back into exercise strategically, knowing what to watch for, what to do and not do. If you’re wondering what recovery and return to exercise looks like post explant, I think you’ll appreciate the personal and professional insight from this episode.
