I Got a Date! - Eastern Saskatchewan, Canada

When I had my children, the good Lord decided to "bless" me with rather large breasts. Went from a 36C to a 36EEE and stayed that size for a number of years. As my weight crept up and dropped over the past 18yrs, the girls continued to grow and are now a 38HHH. I have been waiting for over a year for the surgery and finally got a date yesterday...March 21st. I haven't lost near the weight I had hoped to but am down 15 pounds from my consult date in Nov 2010 and have a month to lose hopefully 10 more.

I have spent so much time online looking at breasts I'm feeling like a teenage boy! I've read everything I can get my hands on about the proceedure and what to expect and I'm still oh so nervous I could hurl. This all said, I'm still going through with it. I'm battling my fears and have come to realize my biggest one is "How will people look at me after the surgery?" Vain, I know. But, pardon the play on words, my breasts have been huge part of my life for most of my adult years. They're "there" all the time. I fear people looking at me after the surgery and laughing. "what a cow!" and "why would she do that? She looks stupid!" Including my husband. Although, I KNOW he would never say that...it sits in the back of my head as a 'what if?' Sorry for the ramble but this is finally happening and everything I've shoved aside regarding my feelings on this have jumped to the front of the line and have consumed my every thought for the past 24 hours. It's going to be a LONG month till the big day!

Wow...off for my pre-op today.Chest x-ray and blood work then shopping for wedge pillow, button up jammies and anything else I may need. Can't believe how quickly the days are flying by!!!!

Wow...four more days....can hardly believe it. I had my blood work and chest xray done on Tuesday...haven't heard anything so I'm assuming all went well with that. I've had to wear a bright red hospital bracelet that the lab put on. Was told I can't remove it till AFTER the surgery as it shows admitting @ the hospital that I had all my tests done. Not sure why they wouldn't give it to me and I'd put it on later. Sure wouldn't be giving it away to someone else! LOL! Oh well, it provides opportunities for people to strike up a conversation with me. "Oh you were at the hospital? What's wrong with you?" LOL
Still working on losing weight. Since I found out my date, I've lost 10 pounds. :) I'm psyching myself up for the fact I'll likely put ON weight immediately after the surgery due to swelling and fluid retention and from the sounds of things...constipation.Yuck! Will be picking up something from the pharmacy today to have on hand just in case. Oh and I got my bras yesterday. Hopefully they will work for me. I got one in the size I am now and one about 3 sizes smaller. Both "fit" as they're cotton and stretch but of course one is way tighter than the other.
I'm sure I'll be back to ramble some more Tuesday night...I know I won't be sleeping much that night!

Dr is very busy as most ps are in the province. He's a great surgeon, very to the point but thorough.
