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.:)

Good luck on your upcoming surgery.

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.
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. I will check in soon:) thank you all for thinking and praying for me.:)

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.
Im sorry I thought I lost the update from last night and so basically repeated myself. Sorry guys!:)

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!
How are you feeling about your results of the procedure now

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.
