So Happy and Ready for my BR! - Fort Worth, TX

First I want to say how much this site has helped me in my journey to have my breast reduction. I have always had big breasts since I was 11 yrs old. I am a 42DDD and i weigh 190. I am 5'3. Everyone has been great on here and so supportive. I just had shoulder surgery last November and when I would try to wear a bra it would hurt so bad, I talked to my ortho dr and we discussed me having a breast reduction. He said that I would definitely benefit from a breast reduction. He wrote me a letter of medical necessity, which I took with me to my consultation with my plastic surgeon. I waited very impatiently for my insurance to approve it, which I got word today that it has been approved; )!!!!!! My personal goal is to lose wait after my surgery so I can feel better physically and mentally. I am so excited and nervous at the same time!!! I am on medical leave and I need to get back to work as soon as possible, the one great thing is I am on short term disability and since my breasts are a big cause of my shoulder problems the reduction will be covered under the disability which will help me financially until I'm able to go back go work.:)

Well I had my preop today and my surgery is on Wed at 7am! I am so excited and nervous at the same time.;)

Ok yall, I am all set. I have packed my overnight bag, changed the sheets on the bed, and about to finish folding the last bit of laundry. I am so nervous that my tummy is upset. I will probably have to take a phenergan before going to bed to help my tummy and to help me sleep. I will keep yall updated on how everything goes. Wish me luck.

Hi everyone! Well its hard to believe it has been one week today since my surgery!!!! The itching has begun!! Which means healing! I am still running low grade temp :( but it will get better as I keep getting better. I will update yall tomorrow. ;)

Well ladies I jusr pit on the aah bra and it IS AMAZING. So much more comfortable than the bra the surgeon gave me. It doesnt cut into by incisions under my boobs either.!!!!!! I would definitely recommend it after your reduction. I am getting stronger everyday. Ive lost 11 lbs now!!!! So freaking excited! I am definitely motivated to lose more weight now!!! Take care all and I will check in again soon:) God Bless!

Well I keep trying to update and keep getting interrupted. I got an aah bra from walmart and I love it!!!! Its AMAZING! It doesnt cut into my incisions like the bra that the surgeon gave me. I havent had to take any pain med for a couple of days now just ibuprofen off
and on. Im getting stronger everyday not ready for a marathon yet though. Lol! I went out to eat last night and went to walmart for a bit. I still get weak when I walk very far, but I have to keep reminding myself that Im only a week and a half out.:) I will update soon. Take care of yourselves.

Ok ladies I added some post op pictures. Sorry it took so long.:)

Well tomorrow I will be 3 weeks post op! I love my new boobies! I had to drive my husband yesterday to an oral surgeon for immediate removal of an abscessed tooth. The oral surgeon is quite a bit away from where we live but they were able to get him in asap. Boy am I hurting today! Swollen and throbbing. It made me realize how I still need to rest and not push myself like that again. My husband and I are quite a pair, he has a swollen jaw and I have swollen boobies!!! Lol! I will update soon.:) Yall take care!
Fort Worth Plastic Surgeon

I heard about him through the hospital I worked at. I also looked at his website on the internet and was impressed with the before and after pictures of the breast reductions he had done.

Well I went to my dr primary care yesterday to make sure I wasnt getting pneumonia. All is good, my lungs are clear. So i guess the fever is my body healing. Thank goodness. I went to plastic surgeon today and he removed all drains and changed the dressings. He said everything looks great and wants to see me in two weeks.

Hey everyone thank you all for well wishes and asking how I am doing:) Ive had a very rough few days. Im so weak. I was in surgery for 7.5 hrs. I have 4 drains that randy empties for me every 8hrs. He's soo good to me. I really think they should keep u for 2 nights for pain control before they send u home. He took 2 lbs from each boob and 2 lbs of back shoulder fat from each side. So im a small c big b. Its so weird when I look in mirror. Lol!

Wow thats a long surgery. Hope you are feeling a bit better now. 3 weeks will pass in the blink of an eye and you will feel much more human again. I feel like i can do pretty much everything again now.. I still have to be careful but i am not on any meds anymore. :)

Yes I've definitely been resting and taking my meds. Ive been running 101.2 to 101.5 off and on since surgery. I called dr and he advised me to take motrin in between the vicoden, too keep an eye on temp and he wants to see me Mon am. So we will see. It could be my body trying to heal, but ive been on Levaquinn (antibiotics) since Wed. So I don't know what is going on. I will keep you all updated.
