Well I'm 45 in April of 2010 I had breast cancer, and had a lumpectomy. Last summer July 18th 2011 I had my right kidney removed due to kidney cancer. I went down to 80lbs and went from a c cup to an a on left and almost b on my right. I was feeling like less of woman and very self conscious and embarrassed. I would like to be a full c again. My surgery is in 5 days. I hope I choose the right amt of cc's. Im afraid the 300 is gonna be too small. I'm so confused I thought it would be easier. Like just tell ps I want to be a full c but no such luck. Reading others stories confirms my thought I don't know what to do!

So my ps did order them larger then 300cc I feel...

I don't even know what I need! I was wondering today if they give you some type of bra? I wanted the antibiotics before I went in and the pain meds as well. Was told I was getting the scripts on wed day of surgery would have preferred to have tues so I can just go home what do I need ? How long will I be in pain? What do they give for pain? I'm going in like Bambi lost in the woods clueless. Help!!! Thanks lol

Thanks fitLuv. It's been a rough journey. But I have 2 children. I didn't have a choice I had to fight. I was lucky /blessed that both were found early enough. I was a first responder for ground zero 9/11 and the oncologist is not sure if there's a relation because they were 2 different classes of cancer. In 4 more days I can't wait!!!!!!
