Breast Reduction Scheduled for March 19th - Calfornia

Hi all... well with my insurance approval and surg...

Hi all... well with my insurance approval and surg date I'm ready!!(I think anyway).

To give you a little background I am a soon to be 40 yr old mom of 2 (5 and 2). My life a s a professional ballet dancer was not easy with size C breasts and then age and breastfeeding etc resulted in one breast being a 34 DDD and the other 34 DD. I am a 5'8 122pd girl who can't stand the boobies anymore...I long to be a B (always have).

Any suggestions for surviving home life with small ones and is it crazy to think I may go back to teaching ballet the next week if I "keep elbows in" and just instruct from a chair or is that crazy!!?? This website is great!! Excited to be part of the community

The countdown is on....March 19 is approaching...

Good Luck! One more day, you must be so excited! I would stay home 2 weeks and don't pick up your kids. The hardest part is you can't really hug. I don't have kids but I miss really hugging my hubby and 2 dogs! Let us know how you do.

Welcome Elizabeth! I think one week may be a little soon. I just think you may tire way too easily. At two weeks I think you should have no problem. My kids were older so I can't be alot of help with the little ones, but be so careful with lifting! Good luck!
