BR assessment- (in the UK ) on 13th April 2012. Scared and excited- help!!!!
By Deb uk on 04 Apr 2012
Hello there! Can anyone help? As i have stated above, i have my assessment and like most women on here (i've been reading your messages for months now) I am excited and terrified at the same time. A colleague at work had a BR in Jan 2012 and said it was worth it, which gave me the green light to get it sorted. Any advice or words of encouragement would be very appreciated. I think i am worried i wont get through the op or they will be too big afterwards or worse still, they will grow back.... I am 47 and had 2 planned C-Sections which were ok- not as bad as i thought (although i was terrified at the time) but now i am older i am really scared. I dont smoke or take the contraceptive pill and i weigh around 12st at 5ft 7 so i hope that weight wont be a factor. What is worse is my hips and legs are fine - i can fit in a size 12 (UK) -I dont know what size this is in the US-(sorry) but my rib measurement is 34 inches. I have to wear a size 20 top which meaks me look huge as my breasts are a 34GG. People always comment on how big and top heavy i look and it makes me upset. I so want to wear nice bras and get married in a strapless dress and wear nice things instead of struggling to buy tops and wearing black tops all of the time. I have always been top heavy even when i lost alot of weight following a nasty divorce, my boobs stayed a GG but i was 28 inches GG!! Horrible! Can anyone offer me some words of encouragement? I think the procedure is the same here in the UK as the US only we dont have a mammogram just a physical examination to check of lumps etc. I am paying for this myself and my only worries are about post op pain, will i survive (yes i am a wuss) and will they grow back and end up big again?? Silly I know but i am mworried about having to go through another op if something goes wrong. Can anyone help me please??? Thank you Debs UK x x
