Hi ladies ;) I'm about a month out. And the middle area between my breasts is hurting me. Does anyone else have this problem??

Yep.... Right along the sternum. If I reach too far, reach too high, or do too much it is on fire! It will also swell up

Yep. 11 days out and I have it.

Really?!! BAfromLA & M50> Ok then it's is something normal. And M50 that is EXACTLY what happens to mine. I guess no more housework. Lotsa bending, stretching, pushing and lifting involved. At least I'm not alone but wish u guys didn't feel the ouchies !!!

Reached across my husband last night to grab a phone from someone. ...all the way home I held both breasts. The right felt like it was on fire near my sternum, swelled up too. Kept thinking. ...can't get to my peas fast enough! Did it again tonight putting casserole dish away on top shelf. One step forward, 2 steps back. I don't remember being this useless after getting my neck fused, or gallbladder surgery, or having the nerves in my neck burnt. I suppose tho....this DOES have 2 perky benefits the other surgeries didn't have. Patience patience patience

Aye. Good things come to those who wait! The problem fer me is NOT being able to keep my household together. Ya know moms run the house. I'm on my feet as soon as 5:45am and in bed (fingers crossed!) by 8. But always moving. It's sooo hard to slow down because then housework piles up and I feel as if I can't breathe. Crazy, I know...... I also feel guilty. :(

I know how you feel....I was that way when I had young ones and worked. The last 9 years working I was up at 3 am, sometimes 5am and didn't sit down until 8 pm. I also weighed 10 lbs less, lol. The last two days I have slept 8 hours and only waking up once in the middle of the night so I can't complain.

;) moms understand moms!! R u serious. U weighed 10lbs. less?!? Your pics look soo skinny/healthy. And they say that a picture adds ten extra pounds. M50 sounds like u earned your rest! I'm still earning mine. ;)

BAfromLA>what r u doing to manage the sternum pain? And how do u think u got it?

Maybee it's the pectoral muscles, it takes time to heal and we use them in all our arm work, but call your PS office to be safe and sure. Hope you get healed fast

Hi Ladies- I am going in tomorrow for a BA. I am feeling alot of anxiety, almost want to back out. I am not new to this, I had a tummy tuck last February and I felt the same way. I feel selfish, I worry something will go wrong and what have I done at the cost of my family. Anyone who had this done in the past month - please provide me any encouragement you may have. Thanks Ladies.

Hi there! Welcome! There are a lot of ladies in here and they are great support and full of information. I am almost 1 month post op. I almost backed out of mine and everyone encouraged me to go through with it. I am soooooooooo happy I did! It is amazing how different you feel, how your clothes fit, and how damn good you can look in a bikini! No more negative thoughts when you see your boobs in the mirror! It is totally worth it and it's totally normal to have second thoughts. You will do great ! Can you update your review to include your BA journey? Good luck tomorrow!!

I am 12 days post op. I was SO nervous about the surgery, recovery, results and even questioned my sanity!! I am SO happy that I did this. The surgery was a breeze, the recovery so far has been so much easier than I anticipated. I am happy with the results so far. It has boosted my confidence and the man in my life is in love with them!! It is so worth it!! And remember YOU are worth it!! I understand your anxiety and hesitation but just try to envision the awesome results!! Good luck and keep us posted!

Just think of how great you will feel and the great boobies you will wake up with :D do something fun tonight to keep your mind off it, treat yourself go to a movie, hang out with close friends! I'm sure they will help keep your mind off of the scary side of it

Once it's over you'll be fine! It's the Mom coming out in you lol, we always feel guilty putting ourselves in front of our family. I know that feeling myself. I did back out of my revision surgery with my first PS, was having reservations like yers and wasn't happy with what he wanted to do. I'm also a Gramma and was thinking what the hell am I doing when I'm helping take care of my grandson, do I really need this? Well my awesome hubby helped me see how unselfish I am and that I needed to do this for myself if I really wanted it, and he reminded me that I was nervous of my implants getting old. Course I said but it's so much $, he said really? You never spend $ and I've got everything I want it's yer turn. Brownie points for him :) my revision is Aug 13th! Good luck to you and I hope all of us on here can help, very deep breathes and remind yerself that even though yer a Mom you still have wants, needs and desires and every once and awhile you do deserve to come first :) best wishes for yer surgery tomorrow keep us posted!

Hi their, I kno how you feel , I felt the same with my first BA and am looking to get a revision and it's not any easier, I'm trying to remember that theirs thousands that have this surgery and I personally never heard of anyone dying, and millions have surgery for many things, even unhealthy people and they survive well so I would think a healthy person has very little to worry, I'm sure you have put trust in your Doctors team.

Found out today my surgeon does not provide a post op bra.... I only found out because I asked if I could take a second one home after surgery next month... I didn't realize when you spend $8000 that they would be THAT cheap...... I must say I was a little unimpressed by that.
