New Pics, and really worried about dropping to much and rippling....

Ok here's my story so far..... I am 32, mother of 5 and have the boobs of a boy....I have always wanted to have boobs, to feel like a woman and more confident. I am always hit on, so I'm not looking for that, this is for me. I am scheduled for my final visit and to schedule the surgery for sure on Jan. 17th.... One minute I am so happy and ready and willing to fight though this, but the next I read some horror story and im convinced I am making the worst decision of my life. I have read people having these horrible lifelong illnesses and people dying and bedridden because of implants (I know nothing is proven)...... I have researched every angle possible, it seems my world I'd wrapped around this for awhile now, but I want to know I knew everything before hand, that I didn't just jump into something, my goal is to have them done soon (by the end of Jan) as I leave for business to Germany the beginning of March for 10 days...oh yes and let me add my 12 yr old says to me mom don't get them done, did you see the episode of 1000 ways to die where the girls boobs exploded on the plane.....just lovely........I did look into it she was given plastic......


What I'm asking from anyone who's willing to respond (and I have read 100's of your stories). Is what have you learned, how do you feel, do you feel these diseases are really happening to people...was this one of your fears?? Any advice would be great...... I will eventually add photos...... And thank you in advance for any and all help!!! (And for those who are going to say talk to your P.S, I am believe me I have 75 more questions written for Thursday). :)

Hi all....well I'm 12 days PO, I'm doing better in...

Hi all....well I'm 12 days PO, I'm doing better in some things and really bad in others... I see my PS again tomorrow.. I have this horrible pain on the right side of my boob, it spreads through to my armpit, shoulder and shoulder blade....it feels like my muscle is ripping apart when I ove my arm, just walking around sometime it's hurts so bd I hold my right arm up and brace it like I have a broken arm.....the left one is the bigger one, and hurt more in the beginning and it's still sore, like I would expect (nipples killing me, twinges of pain, feeling like milk is coming in etc) but what the hell is wrong with the right one, is this serious, am I stuck with this horrible pain forever....I still can't life my arms all the way up, especially not the right one. I know recovery takes time, and I expect up and downs, but this is horrible pain..... Also another question....when were you able to life things etc....today we received and emergency situation and we took in my 5 month old niece into our custody....I know at this point I can't life her, but so many people have young kids and life them.....if anyone has any helpful tips....sorry to birch and complain...just really stressed and tired and I want to be getting better now in awful pain.... Ty to all.... Added a new photo too..

Hello all my Boobie friends :)... I haven't...

Hello all my Boobie friends :)... I haven't written in awhile, been slammed with a lot of personal family stuff and it's been rough especially right after surgery.....I'm doing better everyday mentally and the depression has calmed some too :). I'm still very sensitive, but I can shower by myself and actually lift my arms lol....they still fell like there ripping through my armpits and my left one is a so much bigger than my right one.....uuugghhhh that irritates me, especially because I like the bigger one better.....my nipples still feel like they are being sliced open :(, and I'm still wearing cozy sports bras, when I put a regular bra on I feel stinging pain by my incisions yet they are healing well...thank God!!!! They seem so far apart does this change when they D&F??? Will the sizing even out....will my armpits stop hurting....ohhhh it's soooo annoying.....hope all of you are doing great and healing wonderful!!!!!

Soooo...I decided today (1 day away from 3 weeks P...

Soooo...I decided today (1 day away from 3 weeks P.O) and I wore a regular no wire bra for the first time to work.....now on both boobs near the incision it's red and purple kind of......is that just from the bra, is that normal, I couldn't see having a hematoma on both in the same spot, but of course I'm a nervous wreck....I was allowed to wear a regular bra after 2 weeks and I pushed it a little longer and now I'm freaking out that I hurt myself....it was a pretty comfortable bra (as comfortable as you can get with boobs that still hurt)..... Did anyone have this???? Ty in advance!!!!

Added new pics, maybe you can see the redness by the crease...

So finally 3 weeks and 1 day P.O. I'm still trying to be happy and positive. I'm very sensitive to touch still and still achy in my muscles. Can't wear a bra, even my sports bra are e ginning to drive me nuts. Has anyone else noticed the sensitivity in your chest changed completely even the littlest pressure from a bra or shirt and it leaves red marks....kind of like when you wear clothes to tight but it does it even if its loose.....
I called my P.S about the bras and she said yes that's normal, but if at 6 weeks you still can't then we may have a problem.....I didn't feel very reassured at that moment and still don't. I see so many people with bras or bathing suits on..why is it so painful for me..... Hope everyone else is doing great!!!!!!

Hi everyone and hope you are all doing great!!! ...

Hi everyone and hope you are all doing great!!! I'm 4 weeks today....(never thought I'd make it this far) I went for my 1 month checkup, I'm doing ok, but I'm still extremely painfully sensitive to the touch, anything that touches me feels like fire burning me or razors cutting me....she says "sounds like nerves", I can't lean forward still, it hurts, I have to start massaging today, I've read so many people's ways they massage and mine is WAY different....I have to go about 2 inches up from my incision at the bottom of the implant and push to my ribs and hold for 10 seconds, do this 5 min. Each boob everyday.... I'm scared shitless I'm going to rupture it or hurt myself somehow....in the office she made me try it, I started shaking and pouring sweat. I've tried to start enjoying them more, but I'm so painfully sensitive it sucks....I'm still not sleeping very well at all.....we just took in my 6 month old niece who is severely going through drug withdrawals, it's been very rough but I know God put her here for a reason.....sorry I'm rambling.....I know so e of my booby buddies are further than me so maybe you have some positive insight.....I do remember one of you telling me to do the lotion and Saran Wrap...I may try that tonight..... I haven't had time to shave let alone anything else..... 6 kids, 1 with so many medical problems, God Bless her little heart, work full time, trying to heal, having an endoscopy on march 5th.....we found out my company may be closing and going back to Europe, I can't even try to explain everything else......guess I just needed to vent.... Thx for listening!!!!!

I'm very interested to hear how everyone else does...

I'm very interested to hear how everyone else does their massages....

If you don't mind commenting that would be great!!!!

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Hello all. I have to be quick, but I am 6 weeks this Friday and mu incisions still hurt inside they have like a pulling, burning sensation inside,depending on the sports bra I have on, sometimes they are irritated looking, I have been putting neosporin on them.....but I wanted to know if anyone had pain by them this far into it... Ty in advance!!!!

Hello all, Hope everyone is doing great!! I...

Hello all, Hope everyone is doing great!! I finally love them, yes I am saying that.. I love them, I cant imagine not having them. I do have boob envy..uuugghhh but I am so happy to have the girls as a part of me. They no longer feel like foreign objects, they are my boobies!! They are not 100% soft but I can move them, squeeze them and everything else!! The only problem I have been having recently is that I am spitting sutures..has this happen to anyone else?? I see my P.S next week and I have already called, they said it was normal, but it does worry me and it can be painful at times.
Well I am sooooo happy to say that I love them and hope to have them for rmany, many years!!!!!! :) :) I look forward to any feedback about the stitiching!!!
