I have had back and neck problems for as long as I can remember. I have went to physical therapy . massages , lost weight and to no avail did that help with the weight of my breast. I'm a little anxious and nervous. I have never had surgery before but I know its soooo worth it . I'm 44 and ready to make a change .

Im a 40 DD Or at least I though I was until the doctor informed me that I was a E or possibly a F ... I will admit I refused to buy a bigger cup size but the spillage is so not cute and always having to adjust them is too much .

Well day 1 on the other side . My surgery was yesterday February 15th. It was scheduled for 845 they called me at 7 and asked if I could come in sooner... I said yes got there and still didn't go in until 930. I have never had surgery so I was really anxious and somewhat scared , but the nurses and doctors were so nice and helpful . I remember going in the operating room and when I opened my eyes I was in recovery wow 3 1/2 hours later . The surgeon said he removed 1 1/2 pounds from each breast . I get the first peek at the "girls " on Tuesday I know it will change alot in the upcoming months excited about that . For the first time I can remember I didn't have shoulder pain this morning ...one word "awesome!"

Well it's day 3 haven't slept well since the surgery I nap throughout the day and night because I can't seem to get a block of consistent sleep. I have my first after surgery appointment tomorrow hopefully the drains will be removed ****note take pain meds prior to appointment **** I'm currently drinking prune juice on the daily I haven't had a bowel movement since Thursday it's about that time !!!

Okay its been 10 days since the surgery .. I'm going to my second post op . We shall see what they do. I'm supposed to return to back to work on Monday ,,, but I don't think that such a good idea. I'm a pharmacy tech. and I do a lot of reaching and bending plus carrying the medicine totes and sometimes they are really heavy. The holes from the drains are still there as well .. so I'm gonna ask the doctor to extend it. I have been healing well at least I think I am and I don't want a setback because I have done something to early. Well any who have a wonderful day ladies.. Ill post once I return with the outcome.

Nothing new to report Im healing fine .. The tape is still on my boobs though I go back to my PS next week for a follow up .. I need to ask how much he removed I think he told me 3 pounds total or as it 4 pounds.. One thing I do remember is that he told me that I had the most dense breast tissue that he has ever seen.. anywho I hope every one is doing well and healing well ...
