I've got 4 children (I got a young start :) 9,5,2,1. I'm really fortunate to have a husband who supports my decision to do this. I gained so much with each pregnancy but always lost really quickly since I was in the Army and was always physically active, so needless to say I'm left with a flabby stomach and I can wash my feet and boobs at the same time. I'm so ready to get my pre baby body back. I'm so glad I found this site, I've learned so many tips already.
I was medically retired from the Army last year and I start nursing school in August so it's the perfect time to get it done and healed before the real craziness begins.My surgery is scheduled for May 17th. I feel like its a long way away but we're doing a lot of traveling in April and the beginning of May.
I had a few questions-
I saw on another post something about taking arnica tablets for swelling before surgery, has anyone else heard of this?
Any recommendations on compression garments?
Any other advice on making the recovery easier?
My PS immediately made me feel comfortable. I was getting ready to give up my search before I went to his office. I really didn't want to go to a male PS but I went to all the female PS in the triangle area and none of them worked for me. He took his time with my appointment and explained everything. His office staff is great as well. Every time I call they are always so sweet and helpful. I know he's going to do a great job with my procedures and I can't wait to take after pics!

I don't have any pain at all in my breasts until I lift my arms up to a certain point. My TT isn't too bad since I got the pain pump. Ive been walking around as much as possible. And a word of advice to the ladies who haven't gone in yet wear yoga pants that the top fold down. It helps keeps the drains in place, and they're super comfortable. I took before pics but I can't seem to upload them from my iPhone. I'll post them as soon as I can. Sorry for the rambling & tyPos. I'm so high on pills its rediculous!

I have a few questions for the moms who got a BA as well. My breasts weren't sore at all following surgery but yesterday and today they've been sore. It also looks like my left one is bigger. Is that normal? I don't know if maybe they've started to drop, or maybe I'm just doing too much. I don't know. I took my pain pump out yesterday turns out it wasn't working so my dr said hed reimburse me the $.
I took some after pics. I'm still so swollen....

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
The minute I met Dr Stoeckel I knew he was the perfect surgeon for me. He took the time with me appointments, he was patient, and he answered all of my questions. Not to mention his before and after pics were superb. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient. If you are in the Raleigh, Durham, Cary area then you should definitely check him out.
