I just had a breast reduction and am bigger now than before the reduction, I look like Dolly Pardon if not worse.  I am so worried and upset that I went through this procedure to have these results, I know they will be smaller, but when?  I have called my PS and he says it is normal, also one breast was bigger than the other one , he said he would fix that as well, well it still is much bigger....Help...I am so depressed all I did was lay in bed today.  Any words of encourgement or explanation would be most helpful.   I so want those smaller shirts and bra's....

You are swollen..only five days...i am almost four months and still have swelling..somewhere within you, you will find the patience that we all are lacking and teying to find!!! We have all wanted this for so long, i think we have such hi expectations..well i know i did/do..there are days still when i go shoot, i wish i was smaller, but then i look at my before and realize i am..and pretty well,proportioned too...it is difficult..you just need time to heal..this is a big surgery..not nearly as easy breezy as i thought. I thought i would wake up, and be ready for the itty bitty committee...i was so wrong..but let yourself recover..stay in touch with your ps..hang in there friend..aloha

could it be that the swelling hasn't gone down yet?

Are you not swollen? Are you the size you want to be? My PS and all others have told me it takes upwards of 6 months for everything to stop swelling, fluid to go away etc...I am still filled with fluid....are you? Its been 10 days for me..lets keep in touch and see how we are doing.....I just want to be the small c I asked for.....or at this point c period
