First of all let me say that this is completely...
Anyway I am a 34 year old mother of one, I am 5' 5" and 169lbs. I have been well endowed since the fourth grade and complaining about my breast ever since then. I was working one day and my back was killing me and my ribs were hurting. Something made me grab my bra straps and lift up my breast (just trying to get some relief) and wouldn't you know it, I felt relief instantly. I had an epiphany and that was all she wrote....got online that night and started doing research and surgery is day after tomorrow.
Initially I was a little worried because I have never had any surgery and so all the what if's were bombarding my mind but after a couple of consultations with my PS, I felt a lot better. I can actually say at this point I am excited about my surgery and looking forward to it. Hope I still feel that way tomorrow. I'm sure I'll catch the anxiety bug at some point.
Ladies please know I am open for any last minute suggestions or advice. Obviously I want to have this whole process go as smoothly as possible. Oh yeah, I am a 36 DD/DDD depending on the bra and time of the month and my goal size is a C cup. Yay!!
On The Smaller Side
I am very pleased with my results so far. Not much pain at all. There was a little discomfort where the surgical bra was rubbing my incision but once I adjusted that it has been smooth sailing in regards to the pain. I try and stay on top of my meds which helps a lot.
The day of my surgery I arrived a little about 20 minutes early and the staff was ready for me right away. I was on the operating table within 45 minutes of my arrival. All of my emotions were completely under control until the PS started making my markings and suddenly I was almost in panic mode. I started feeling sick on the stomach because the reality that he was going to be cutting those areas off of my body just freaked me out. The last thing I remember was lying on the operating table, crying, and saying a prayer and then waking up needing to use the bathroom. No nausea or vomiting but I did have a serious case of the shakes. My husband and my parents came into the room, boy was I glad to see them. Next thing I know I was in the car on the way home.
Car ride was a little rough just because it was so long. Got in the house and made it to the couch before the snow started. Yay!!
Anyway, The girls are nice and perky. They look like a nice C-cup not to big, not to small, just right. I do have a little asymmetry and sensation only on the left side so far, hopefully the right one will wake up soon. All in all everything is going great. I feel good except for the fact that I'm sleepy all day and kind of restless but I pushed a little to much earlier today and realized I have to stay put. That's it for now I will update soon. Thanks
I'm In Serious Trouble
2 Days Post-op
Change of Heart and One Week Post-Op
My 1 week post-op visit was today and I am feeling pretty good. PS says everything looks good. I do have some asymmetry but hopefully that will get better with time. Starting to get zingers as well and some itching. All signs of healing!!!
It Finally Hit Me
I even went through this little emotional bit I've read some of you talk about, wanted to cry. For no apparent reason, just felt like it. Anyway I'm still loving my results and looking forward to what tomorrow brings.
I hope that all of you are doing well at whatever phase of this process you are in. Happy Healing!!!
Almost at a month post op....
One Check Up
I have already and will continue to recommend anyone considering this surgery to Dr. Stoeckel. He and his staff are great and I enjoyed working with them very much!
