Im 42.Had my 1st child at 40.Great experience! Tried 4 a 2nd child last yr when I found out I had breast cancer. Because the cancer was hormonal Dr. said no more kids.I gained 70# while I was expecting. Ive always had curves. But breast grew from 40F to 40I. I went back to pre-baby wt 225 after birth.

Decided to lose some wt, now Im 207. My breast have been droopy for yrs. but I had 2 wait til after cancer treatments(1yr) 2 do any procedures. Ill b having a full TT & breast reduction 11/19/2010.

Im sooo excited & alittle nervous. Ive been reading reviews tryin 2 plan ahead purchase things I may need, gettin my house in order as well as my mind & spirit. If there is anything anyone can think of let me. Ill keep u guys posted. Ill try to get some pre/post pics. God Bless

Im 6 days post op. I feel fine with tha help of meds, but taking less. Im sleepin on recliner which helps me 2 get up by myself. I had my 1st post op Dr. visit. Went vert well. I got a chance 2 c my body. Tha drainage tubes will b removed monday. Im very pleased & excited. My tummy is still very swollen. My breast also still swollen & my scar from breast cancer surgery is gone:)Ive taken showers with a shower chair which is helpful. My tt scar is nice & low. I were tha wrap/corsit daily, but i take off at times. I dont know if im wearing it tight enough, maybe thats y my lower tummy is still swollen. If anybody has any suggestions let me know. Thank God 4 stool softners which i started takin a wk before surgery. I will post some pictures but they dont due me justice.

Atlanta Plastic Surgeon

Yes he is great !!!!! He said he would take care of me & He did. He was intially my Dr. 4 follow up from breast cancer, not even thinkin about tt just breast reconstruction. But he said i had 2 wait till my breast heal. Later i thought about tt & he said he could do it. He has agreat personality & I loved since day 1
