What did you tell your kids?
By Iowa71 on 04 Jul 2011
I'm trying to decide how to approach this subject with my kids. I have three boys at home, ages 16, 14, and 10. Pretty sure they don't want to discuss my boobs with me. They are going to know that I am having surgery, and I'm sure it will be evident what is going on when I am home, but I don't know if it is a subject they are going to be excited to hear about right now. When I went for my consult I told them I was seeing a doctor because of my back pain and let them hang out at the mall while I went for my appointment. Do I just tell them that the doctor said that the pain is from the extra weight I carry around and that a reduction would help alleviate a lot of that pain? Appreciate any advice!
