Big Boobies No More - Fort Worth, TX *UPDATE - 2 months PO photos*

I went for my first PS consult April 30th, 2012 after seeing my gyn. The PS sent all the paperwork into insurance to see if I would be approved for the BR. I was a 36DDD (at least), 5'3 and around 165lbs. Went on vacation and enjoyed my summer. :) Heard back from the PS after July 4th holiday that insurance approved and had my BR on Wed, 8/1/12. Will update more later. :)

I'm going crazy with itchy boobies!!! LOL Things must be moving right along and healing up nicely. ;) Had my first shower since surgery today and it sure felt great! I've been busy today getting my house back in order and getting a little laundry done. Hopefully I will sleep well tonight. I would be feeling great if it wasn't for the itchies... UGH!!! Hope everyone is doing great!

Doing good today. Post Op day 4. No pain meds today, just some advil this morning. Boobies are starting to take more shape now. I posted a picture in my sports bra.

Post op day 5 =D. I am doing good. Really...

Post op day 5 =D. I am doing good. Really surprised by how quick everything seems to be improving. I was a little worried at first that I was going to be too small however, my breasts are taking more shape every day. I am very pleased thus far. I will definitely have some serious scars. I had a keyhole incision around the nipple and down then an extended incision following the breast curve completely around the underside of my breast. I'm not worried about scarring just about proper healing. I seem to have full feeling in the right nipple and sporatic twinges on the left nipple. I am posting more pictures. Definitely need to go on a full scale diet to remove the midsection! That has been to most depressing sight. *sigh* The girls really did camo a lot of the extra weight I am carrying around. I am having some bothersome neck/shoulder pain (more than breast pain!) due to lack of comfortable sleep positions but I am able to sleep on either side which is good. :) I'm not good at letting anyone do things for me so I have pretty much been self sufficient from day 1. All is well and hope it stays that way. Next PS visit is Friday, 8/10. Happy healing!!!

I am 1 week po today. I feel pretty good BUT I...

I am 1 week po today. I feel pretty good BUT I haven't done any driving and have only left the house for dinner last night and the Dr appt last week po. I do have to go to the grocery store today so I'm a little anxious about that.

I'm not having a lot of breast pain/soreness but do have some. I have chronic neck pain due to a herniated disk so that is worse for me. Prescription pain meds give me a migraine worse than the pain from the BR too so I usually just take some advil at night. I think the itches may do me in though! LOL If I take the benadryll I get so much drainage it makes me sick so I am struggling some with that the last couple of days.

Yesterday I didn't do anything besides go to dinner last night. I'm just trying to take it one day at a time and give my self a chance to heal. I know it's hard and some days will be better than others but I LOVE my new little itchy titties! LOL I don't spend too much time looking at them just yet cuz they are a little scary! I just keep praying that everything heals ok. Friday is my next PS visit. Not really sure what to expect at this visit. My PS is a man of few words... LOL

9 Days PO - Had my visit with the PS today. He said everything looked good. I go back next Friday and he may remove some of the stitches. I'm updating some photos. =D Happy healing!!!

12 days PO. The last 2 days were rather difficult for me. I had some extreme itching. I finally removed all of the steri strips under my breasts. I looks like I am developing a reaction to the adhesive or something. Benadryl was not really helping but I found some cortizone 10 cream and put some of that on, (careful not to get it on the actual incisions) and finally found some relief! YAY!!! I am adding a picture that shows some of the irritation from the tape. Other than that, things are progressing well I guess. Will be glad when I can start focusing on weight loss. I don't want to do anything to delay the healing but my midsection is really bothering me. :( Hope everyone is doing well! Happy healing!!!

Added a couple of pix 2wks PO.

Just got back from my follow-up PO visit. PS is very pleased with everything and said I am healing better/faster than most. :) He removed the last of the tape around my nipples and removed a few of the stitches from the nipples. I think they look pretty darn good!!! LOL I will post a new photo soon. Good luck to all the ladies who are waiting and happy healing to those that are PO!!!

3wks post op update - I am getting more used to my new tatas everyday. :) Still have occassional pulling and pains but nothing that requires any kind of meds. I updated a few photos. I still have some dried blood around the nipples but afraid to scrub too much so I am just leaving everything alone. lol I think my size is going to be 34D/36C which I think is going to be perfect. I had a swim top on today for the first time and it was amazing to see how much better I look with "normal" size tatas! Love it!!! Hubs is very happy. ;) I want a tummy tuck so bad now though!!! UGH!!! :( Hopefully sometime in the next year.

Hope everyone is doing well and happy healing to all!!!

Yesterday was 4wks PO. Don't go back to the PS until next Friday, 9/7. Looks like a couple of the stitches are poking out. Other than that, everything seems to be progressing well! ;)

Well, it's been over 2 months now and I am so glad I did this and have it behind me! YAY!!! I am updating a few pics. I am very pleased with the way the scars look. I think they will almost be undetectible by next summer. :)
