I am just starting my journey of hopefully getting a breast redution. My PCP has referred me to a plastic surgeon for a consult. I go on March 7th. I have been seeing a chiropractor for the last week or so as well. I am trying to get insurance to pay for the surgery. A little worried that I haven't had documented back pain for long enough. It will only have been 2 month at the time of consult. I have had the pain for over 2 years. I am a nurse practitioner and usually care for myself until the point that I have to go somewhere else. I have always have always had large breasts after my son was born 2 year ago March 7 & I shot up to a 38F. I am 5'5 and 170 (which I am workking to lose 20 lbs). My upper back and neck hurts all the time. Hoping that I can get insurance to cover this. I will still have it done if not but I will have to save for it and who knows how long that will talke? If anyone has any tips or advice please share.

Day 3 post op. Feeling better each day. Pain is not as bad as I thought it would be.

This was a big week back to work and back to the gym!! Things are healing well. I do have a dime size opening at the T junction on the right side but it appears to be healing well. The first couple of days of work I was so tired and really missing my daily nap but it is getting better. I am so ready to start back up with aerobics and lose this weight but I am not going to over do it. Right now just walking on treadmill and leg exercises.
My breast are shaping nicely and looking better each day. So glad I went through with this!!

Dear heavenly father, we come to you tonight asking for prayers for Msky83 as she prepares to have Breast Reduction Surgery tomorrow morning. God, please give her a sense of calmness and allow her to focus her mind on a restful state. God, please give your blessing and hold the hands of the doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and all of the other hospital staff that will be touching her tomorrow. Let her make it through the surgery with minimal pain and no complications. It is in his holy name that we ask these things, in Jesus name...AMEN! Let the church say amen!

This is a good site to be on. You may think your situation is so mounting and you may be scared until you look on this site until you see how may women are going through the same thing at the same time. You will do fine. And I guarantee you ANY problem you may be having and experiencing there will be some women that can give you advice about it. Good luck with your surgery. I will be praying for you and looking forward to your updates. Check my profile out. I had surgery on April 1st and made sure I did sugar coat any details.
