Well hi ladies, pre and post. I've been reading...
I'm a 40 year old with 2 baby boys, one aged 42 and one aged 2. I've been living with these monsters for years hitting a D cup when u was 20 and gradually increasing over the years hitting the I cup when I had my lovely boy.
I've loved even adored them for many years and presented them in the best possible way from sexy to somber but in the past few years my man killers ( they could have been;) ) have become a burden to me and interfered with my well being and the way I look at myself.they have served me well in their years but these babies gotta go now.
Things I hate about them;
Old men leering, especially here in Spain, big boobies are a local attraction
Gaping shirts or not being able to find a shirt and having to buy a tent instead
Not being able to wear dresses, terrible when it hits 35-40 Celsius
Not being able to run without holding them ( awful for a former x country runner)
Not Being able to exercise without a constant swinging lead weight on your chest
The way they hang down so far
The way the hang 'over the edge' when I'm lying flat
Only being able to buy bras online for god awful prices
The way they look
The weight of them
The pain between my shoulder blades
The pain in my lower back in the morning when I wake ( I sleep on my front)
The nerve knots I get beside my shoulder blades
My little man using them as a plaything
And that's just a few reasons.
I went to see my PS on 13 February , I had been with him before for bilateral carpal tunnel and the scars on both my hands are beautiful. My dad had the same op and you would think the surgeon had transplanted Frankensteins scar to his hands, you wouldn't see mine. Well at that time 5years ago he mentioned he did breast surgery and I made a mental note to myself to go back. I did and was originally told between end March and 10 April but then he broke his wrist so been given a new date of 27th. Not thrilled as my bro is getting married in mid June and I wanted to ensure I was on the best side of recovery. Was actually devastated as had my mind set for the original time period so another 7 weeks just sent me to melt down for a few hours. I sent a grovelling email so hopefully he will move it by a week or 2.... Fingers crossed!!! I don't want to go anywhere else as he's the best.
Cost is €6950 but now going to try my medical insurer as I have a longer wait
Anyone got a list for what to bring to hosp? I have gotten a few front fasteners and some 'genie' bras for after but do I really need a surgical bra?? Would esp like comments from Europe on the list thing as more likely to be able to get what's suggested. Hubby thinks I'm a bit mad preparing now but that's what he said when I put my suitcase in the car when I wS 32 weeks pregnant, little man arrived at 33w and 3 days... Can never be prepped enough in my opinion lol.
I have officially developed a boob obsession which has resulted in my 2yo shouting int the supermarket yesterday 'docka gonna cut mom as Bobbies with knife' good job not many of my locals speak English lol. I keep looking at them and trying to half them to get an indicator of their new size. Needless to say its a bit pointless but I like to show willing!
New date... 4 weeks!!!
Love insurance companies ...not!!
Post op apps
Sexy front fasteners
Anyhoo, here's one of the lovely soft bras in my soon to be gone boobs :))
6 days to go
4 days pre
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow :)))
I forgot oops
Post op care
In all their glory
2 weeks 2 days post
Here they are 10 weeks post op
I will say one thing that Mr Murray told me when I castigated him for not telling me how easy the recovery would be even though I did get a little infection which caused 2 wounds to heal a little slower (not his fault, mine completely). He replied by saying ' it's your mindset , you came in here positive wanting to change your life, you remained positive through the post op recovery phase and ate what made it easy' . A woman he did the same day had been back to him 10 times in between my first and second appt and she had no complications. If you go in with the thought of , I'm going to be amazing after this then you truly will.... Positive thoughts to all xxxx
Even improves your game lol
Mr Murray was in all senses the perfect match for me. He is professional, direct and most importantly for me warm which reinforced my faith in him and knew that he would do the best job possible. I would recommend him to anyone who wanted someone personable and highly skilled. I believe it makes a huge difference to ones confidence when they feel they have a good open relationship with their surgeon. I know it did me as I didn't really have any reservations at any stage about having the surgery or doubt my choice of surgeon.
