More Excited now!

I have always wanted bigger boobs but felt that I was pandering to the desire of the "playboy" image. I was teased by my family for having small breasts and my first husband constantly told me to get a boob job. Thank god he is an ex! Anyway, I have finally decided that the pain of worrying about my breasts has got to end. Therapy, self help books and acceptance of what I have, doesn't cut it. So I have surgery scheduled in 2 days. I am excited but now am super scared! What if I regret it?

My husband has told me that I am doing this because I am insecure. Two weeks ago he asked me for a divorce. I have my sister to help me with the recovery process. It's funny cause I just found out a month ago that she had implants put in 5 years ago, and I never knew(only her husband knows)! She loves them btw.

I am hopeful for an even higher level of confidence, I have confidence in myself, just some unhappiness with breast size. How do I deal with the negativity I am getting from my soon to be ex-husband. And the worry?

Surgery went well. Was home by 1:30 in the afternoon. Took Enodocet, a narcotic painkiller, and gravol, an anti-nauseant, and basically slept all afternoon. Pain is only bad when I walk around or move arms. My sister has been wonderful. Making supper and helping with my pets! I have only looked at my new breasts briefly. They seem so big! I am soooo not used to that look! I look forward to filling out tops better, just hope it doesn't look too obvious!

I don't want any one to know, so have told my kids that I hurt my back and have to rest and not lift things.

My surgeon ended up putting in 330 cc Naturelle silicone implants under the muscle.

Here's to a fast recovery!

Some pain today. My breasts seem larger than I wanted, but my sister assures me that it is probably some swelling. Feel pretty good if I keep taking the pain meds. Hurts a lot to get out of bed. Feels weird to have larger breasts. Will take some time.

Day 3 - Less pain, have stopped the narcotic pain killers, as I would like to go to the bathroom soon! Regular ibuprofen seems to help. But my breasts seem larger than I pictured. Also, had a shower today, felt nice. The implants are really high right now and kinda look funny to me! How long before they 'drop' and look normal? There is a lot of tightness, but not alot of pain. Thank goodness. I wonder what the final product will look like and will I like it? I know it is so close to surgery that there must be a lot of swelling and settling down that needs to happen.

Went to my Moms for dinner, was tired. But just sat there and ate. I wore a loose shirt and no one noticed. But I noticed! Wow they are big today, way too big. I don't like them at this moment. Boy I hope they go down in size. I never wanted to be in the D zone. I don't know what to think at this point. Today is the day I'm questioning my decision, big time (no pun intended!).

Day 5 (or 6 depends when you count from!). ...

Day 5 (or 6 depends when you count from!). Feeling pretty good. Sometimes stabbing pains but they don't last long. A lot of really tight feelings and general squeezing on my chest. I know that I have been overdoing my arms, but it is so hard not too. I had to get groceries, my daughter carried the bags and pushed the cart but still opening doors and such. My underarms are sore now. Will try to rest more tomorrow! I just want to tell you ladies with a supportive SO. You are lucky! Be grateful! I wish I had that. I don't and telling my kids I hurt my back does get me a little bit of help. But boy would it be nice to have someone who loves me hold me and rub my back! And do the groceries. Enjoy that if you have it!
Still waiting for swelling to go down. But it is only day 5 and it is hot as hell here and I've been doing too much today. All factors.

Take care.

Had one week post op today. He says everything looks good. The swelling should go down and the implants will drop and look more normal. I'm to start pressing down on the implant for 10'secs about 3-4 times per day and press in on the outside as well. The pains and shooting pains are normal, nerves starting to heal. I'm also to put paper tape on the scar and change weekly for about 2 months. And take it easy for the next 4weeks, which will be hard as I'm a single working mother. My kids aren't little but they still need groceries, etc. and lots of driving around. Hope it progresses quickly! Still hoping the final result looks more like I imagined it would!

Today was good. Have some breast tenderness on the right side under the armpit. Hurts to move my right arm much and of course I'm right handed, so I just naturally use it. My nipples are really sensitive today. Seems like that's normal from reading other posts. I am kinda liking the look I have now. No padded bras!!! And I feel sexier. My breasts still are swollen and high but it's a huge difference from trying to get the bra not to gap. Went for a long walk today and was shopping. I'm resting now cause my boobs were telling me I was overdoing it. Here's to trying to take it easy!!!

Feeling pretty good today, not much pain. Haven't...

Feeling pretty good today, not much pain. Haven't needed pain killers for a while. I still get the odd sharp pain and I have to be careful how much I lift or move my arms. Not quite used to the size yet, still hoping for some reduction in swelling, but on the other hand - kinda like having them! Ha! Such a change, actually feeling boobs while you do things.

Posted a picture to how I'm looking today.

Feeling a little sore in the breasts and inner...

Feeling a little sore in the breasts and inner arms. Probably overdoing it. I walked lots yesterday and was busy all day today. Hard to make myself relax! Anyone have really really sensitive nipples? Even hurts to lightly touch them? How long will that last? My boobs are looking better every day and I can't believe I have them!

Breasts feel pretty good today. Not too much pain...

Breasts feel pretty good today. Not too much pain even though I went shopping for a few hours. My left breast has settled down even more. But I am still waiting for the right! It's dropped a bit, But looks way higher. Probably it's because I'm right handed and those muscles are tighter. I am doing the massage that my PS suggested but haven't seen improvement. Also wondering if I am doing it right. Is this normal? Like the look of the left one that has settled, looks less scary and more realistic and sexy. Be nice to have a matched set! Btw, my husband is missing me. He doesn't know about my surgery yet, as we have been separated for a while. He knows I wanted it and tentatively booked it. Wonder what he'll think. Hmmmm. I know it doesn't really matter to me, although his reaction will tell me a lot about our future!

Feeling good, no pain. Still some settling to do....

Feeling good, no pain. Still some settling to do. Trying to do the push down and in massages that my PS suggested 4 - 5 times daily. I am told that time will help and really settle things.

My husband and I talked about my surgery yesterday and went for a long walk. He loves my new set but was really quick to point out that he really loved the old ones. Nice reaction. Thats cool. We actually fooled around and it was fantastic. None of that insecurity about how they look in this position or that. That God! A really good bonus! And all the sensation is still there, so I am so grateful for that.

My big hope is that they drop and settle soon. I tend to be impatient, so this is a good lesson!

Worked a long day yesterday - man I was sooo sore when I was done. I had to lay down and go to sleep. Worked again today, and still sore. My arms especially!

Have some new pics - will post soon. Still riding high - especially on the right!

Husband likes them, although he says they feel "fake". Well, they are still tight and swollen!

Any ideas about when standing at work will feel better? When do the implants start to drop and soften? Wish I had the answers!
I am loving having something to fill out my shirts with, and they look pretty nice. I am glad I did this. Just need more patience.

Feeling pretty good. Have some really sensitive...

Feeling pretty good. Have some really sensitive nipples though! yikes - just having a shirt touch them is so painful. I had a few 'zingers' yesterday. man that hurt too. Have been sleeping on my side for the past 2 nights. Seems to be good and so nice to get off the back! My right boob is still high, the left is looking more normal all the time. I hope I even out soon! It worries me a little but I am only on day19. I'll try not to dwell....

Love hearing about all of your progress!

Feeling pretty good, looks better every day. ...

Feeling pretty good, looks better every day. Despite some negativity from a stranger, I feel confident I will be satisfied with the final product. Wish I knew how to block someone though!.... any way?

Any how, worked today and felt much better. Still tired, but way less arm pain. I still have quite sensitive nipples and "sore" areas on my breast. Not sure. I get my period soon, maybe my natural breast tissue is reacting to hormonal changes?

Thanks for all the support from my fellow "realselfers"! Muchly appreciated!
