It happend so fast!!!

I'm sort of driving my self crazy Ha! I have been researching on BR for about a year now and getting approved and picking surgery date all happen within a week! Seen the doctor June 25, 2014, without taking off any clothes or giving my story that I had worked so hard on lol. The doctor show's me pictures , ask me if I was having any more kids, told me how he does the surgery and told me to pick a date and call the office back. THAT WAS IT!.. After working it out with my job to be off work for up to 3months I had my date set Sep 4th 2014. With a little under two months I don't know what to do with my self. Everyday I go to the mirror old my breast up to try and imagine what I will look like with smaller boobies. Also I've been working on the stomach cause reading and watching videos of other women who have had BR say you now see it lol and its bigger than you thought!
Hi, are you really planning to take 3 months off work? what do you do?

Hello, No not gonna use the entire three months but I have the option through my job Family Medical Leave for surgeries, pregrency. I work in a warehouse, desk job mostly but I do have packages that come in and I don't wanna have to lift anything before I could heal good enough. I'm thinking 1 1/2 months will be good enough. But just wanna keep my options open with my job.

I know how you feel! I'm struggling with what I will look like after! I am presently a 40 M and my surgeon asked me what I want to be etc. I FEAR that they will be too small - if that makes sense? The smalles I ever was - with boobs - was a D when I was 14. So I don't want to be that small - even though it isn't! I'm a big girl and I think a D would look like fried eggs on me - as it is the band size that is the deciding factor - as in a 40 D (look) is a LOT smaller than a 34 D! Just worried that I will hate the size - do you have the same feelings?

PRE-OP TODAY

So today was my pre-op! This just makes me even more excited!! Got some blood drawn, asked lots of questions. Gave me all the paperwork for work ,instruction and stuff. Also doctor isn't giving me a surgical bra he says bring an old bra and they will take the wire out for the next day when he removes the drains. "I guess" Also I'm scheduled for the first BR that day 7:30am.:-) So two more weeks!!!! :-) :-)
Hi, we have the same date for BR on Sept 4. Sending you best wishes!

Warm wishes for a smooth recovery!

IT'S DONE AND WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!!

First I would like to thank you ladies for you encouraging words it's means alot.:-) So I arrived at the hospital@7 am checked in around 745. Anesthesiologist came around 9 and asked if I wanted to get this fairly new numbing medicine that's goes straight to the nerves in my breast he said this would help with the pain up to 16 hrs after surgery so I said why not!!! So got that done made me a lil drowsy. Waited another 45 min another anesthesiologist came in asked if I was ready and if I was sure I wanted to do this. Next thing I remember was my hubby rubbing my hand asking if I wanted water it was done I blinked and that was it. My husband said they took me back around 11 Dr said I should be out @ 230 but didn't come out until 330. It took me 4 hrs to wake up good enough to go the restroom. It was so hard. But finally made it home around 8.

And

I've been taking my pain meds every 4 hours so I feel no pain. I pray this continues. And antibiotic every 6 hrs. I go get the drains removed today. So far I am happy with my decision.
From the looks of it your girls look high up and "perky" Can't wait to see how they look! Congratulations again, glad you're not in pain - keep on those meds, don't play catch up!
Reply
They are perky lol for now. But from I've been reading they will drop some I hope not to much. Thanks I kinda wanna see if I don't need the pain meds because I think they are keeping me from going to the restroom #2 :-)

Increase your water intake, be careful that you aren't chasing the pain - as that never works! In a couple of days you will be able to just have Advil etc. They look GREAT - hardly any bruising or crusties etc.

THE FIRST LOOK

So here is before and after I can't believe it, I did it ,I did it lol.
Glad you're doing well. How much did they take off? Did the PS what size he was taking you to? I was a 32H, and I am about a 32C now.
Reply
He said he took 1.5 pounds each side idk if that alot or not. He says they don't really go for size but would make sure I was around a DD

Good looking result, hope you feel o.k.

Day 6

So I just had my stitches removed can you say ouch! And Ps like ok lay down and I'm moving so slow lol. Then he's like ok sit up let me see and juggles them! Yes I said juggle. I wanted to die. But he's says I'm all good. Don't have to wear the pads underneath. And for itching only to take a shower and put lotion on them. Also says I can start a mild workout 5 mins or so. But I'm still gonna give it another couple of days. I'm doing good pain level 1~2 and that's mostly from itching. Haven't took any meds since Sunday. Omg sleeping is so bad on this couch/recliner I just wanna lay on my STOMACH.... Other than that I'm ready to get dress and show off my girls :-)
U look great. I cannot believe they still use stitches these days. My doc used desolved stitches. I went home with no drain. No itches what so ever. Im only on Tylenol and feel great. I was 40c now 34c. Loving it.
Reply
Thank you! Yea I do have the desolveable stitches he said the six he removed were emergency stich. But glad you doing good.
Reply
Wow you are doing well to be only 6 days. Can't wait for my post op journey.

Lil NERVOUS :/

Hi ladies so I have a lil scare here I don't know if I should call my PS or not. I don't wanna wait till it's worse or something and I don't wanna over react. So I think I have an opening like the stitch or something came out its really small but what if it opens ??? See picture
Doesn't look like an emergency to me - looks like you are splitting a stitch. Welcome to the (unfortunate) club! Call your PS's office tomorrow during business hours. They'll probably want you to come in so you can clip it. In the meantime, make sure to not lift anything heavy or stretch too far. You don't want it to become worse. I've been dealing with this since week 2 and it's not fun at all. For some reason, my body isn't a big fan of the stitches and it looks like neither is yours.
Reply
Edit- so that THEY can clip it, lol. Don't attempt it yourself!
Reply
Ok thank you I've been taking it easy I thought :( I'll call tomorrow. I pray it doesn't open more...

WEEK 2

Hello ladies it's 2am and I'm up with some pain I've been fighting it for a couple of days now but I gave in and took some meds, back on the codine. That's all I have.... I can't really take pills:/ so I have to make due. The pain is coming from all over, I would think this is how I should have felt week 1 but nope lol. It's really tender under my arms and these sharp pains in the nipple ain't no joke either. Lol!!!! And I just dropped the phone on my chest ok I'm done I think meds kickin in. Till next time BR friends.
Hope your feeling better today and I'veheard aabout those zingers and I must say I'm not too excited about that part I've heard they come and go thru out the year..good luck girl stay strong
Reply
Great a whole year lol. But it's well worth it. I'm doing about the same :/ thanks

I think the "sharp pains" may be muscle spasms. My doctor gave me a prescription for muscle spasms.

Healing :-) :/

It feels sooo tight under my breasts every time I move from being in a certain position for so long I get sharp pains. My incision from the middle off chest half way under have started keloiding I seen this from the first day, it's like when he sewed me back up it was pulled too tight. This is painful as well. I hope this gets better soon.

Everything else is cool the little stitch that came out a couple of days ago a scab is appearing :-)

***I slept in my side last night first time in two weeks YES !!!!

I haven't put any lotion or anything on them yet scared even though PS said it was cool to use lotion.

**I have driven down the street to store that's about it...
So ready to go back to work though cause sitting in this house ????!!!!
Hiya Virgo, just checking in! How is the scar the doc pulled too tight? I have same thing but it's along horizontal scar esp. on right. Did PS have any comment on when or if it'll settle? Hope you're pain free & perky, warm wishes, c xxxx

I think a D/DD is perfect for your frame! I had mine reduced from an M to a large D/small DD myself! Your results are gorgeous, just amazing! I'm happy to say also that I started sleeping on my stomach at 3-4 weeks post surgery, and i use a pillow under my chest when i do. So hopefully you will be able to soon as well. you never realize how much you miss sleeping that way until you cant!!! Happy healing!
