I'm glad my posts were helpful and I'm jealous yours was so easy. Mine was difficult to recover from, although it was well worth it and I'm doing great now. Mine was a pedicle, not free TRAM. I have quite a bulge, but hopefully the PS will make a correction when I get the nipple and reduction on the other side (AUG 10).
As for lifting, I was able to lift (a little at a time) by about 8 weeks out of surgery. It still hurts a little if I lift something heavy. PS said I can start doing abdominal exercises.
L & H,
