Crazy in 72 hours I will be getting in the bed for the last time with "the girls" . Still mind blowing. I picked up some new tank tops today, with a little elastic shelf bra & picked up my Arnica & Bromelain. I also rented a recliner from Rent A Center. Can't say I have ever stepped foot in that store & kinda wish I hadn't!! Not sure what I was expecting, lol! Oh well I rented it and I will sanitize the heck outta that thing. Just looked nasty. I didn't think you literally get was is in the store :( Yuck, but the chair has a button which lifts the leg thingy-ma-bob. I heard from my friend that the lever was difficult for her to pull after BR, so this is great.
Only thing that has me concerned today is that MD is expecting a Snow Storm starting tomorrow evening. Ranging from 8-14"! What the heck??? Seriously, why now? Praying its all cleaned up by 8am Friday morning.
Today is yet another day closer to March 8th :)...

Can't be late I've got a very important date!

Greetings SBC's & BBC's, its official I am a in the SBCC (small boobie chick club). Surgery was a breeze, hell I only remember getting my gas (knocked me out pre-needles) & then recovery room where I was as loney as a bed bug.
I asked my Dr to make sure I was a C and not a big C. I also told him to make me look like Halle Berry, not sure which one I am more looking forward to seeing the results of ;)
As for my first night at home checkout my blog today. I will say out of 10 being the worst my first night post op was a 7 with a few moments of 8.
I added a fee pics. Really bleed through and although Dr said not to change dressing I just have to. Drains are a little odd, like they get clogged and seems like its not moving much. Also I think I can feel were the drains are inserted, that hurts pretty bad 8 for sure on the right boob.
Overall I feel great considering I just had major surgery. I am proud of myself, I did it ;)
Feeling extremely sleepy today. My boobies feel so...
Feeling extremely sleepy today. My boobies feel so tight they could bust!! So not cool, hopefully losing the drains will give some relief. I am about a 7 again today due to this tight feeling and the neck, back pain!
Back to sleep I go.

Had my 1st PostOp appt today. He took the drains out and all I can say is OMG OUCH!!! Not to mention I caught a glimpse of the drain he pulled out, disgusting! Kinda made we want to puke. Today I have really still been battling the after effects of being constipation if ya know what I mean ;( no real appetite & still quite sleepy. I haven't taken any pain meds today which is a good thing. Thinking I will only do tylenol tonight. Boobies looked nice today will take pics tomorrow. Oh did I tell ya I got to shower, amen to that!!
Feeling great today! Sleep last night sucked, but...
Feeling great today! Sleep last night sucked, but I think its because I only had 1.5 doses of pain meds yesterday. Today I am only doing tylenol. Overall as of last night & this am I am painfree. Well mine was more discomfort, so discomfort free! 1-10 easiely a 1. Heading out today, lets see how this goes!
Well I made it through the 1st week. All in all I...
Well I made it through the 1st week. All in all I give it a 4 on pain & a 6 on plain ol discomfort. The back pain, constipation and crappy sleep were the worst of it. The swollen boobies hurt like hell, but really much better than I thought. Starting to see some bruising today & really don't like the ripples on the skin. Hoping that goes away when they soften & fall. Either way being in the SBCC ROCKS!!!
Sort of cool news the comfy bras I bought from...
Sort of cool news the comfy bras I bought from Nordstroms the Amoena-Francis is far to loose now. Annoyed a bit cuz $80 down the drain under 2 weeks, but happy still. Going to try & sleep in the Hannah tonight. It is tighter for sure, so we shall see. Stomach is at about a 30% still not quite right.
Missed my appt today to have tape removed due to lack of sleep & freaking stomach drama. I also really don't want my tape off. I feel like keeping it makes so much more sense fir the healing process. Going to get the silicone sheets for sure, seems worth the expense.
Crazy but almost at 2 weeks PO!! SBC ROCK for sure!
Just want to let anybody reading my review know as...
Just want to let anybody reading my review know as you must wonder why I have all these crazy notices on here. I have a blog that I begin before I found RealSelf. I just wanted to document my journey from pre BR and beyond. I thought it would be a cool way to help other women. At any rate shortly after I started I found this site, literally hours later. I fell in ? here. So many great women willimg to share. I begin to share my blog website to the ladies here. Garnering great feedback each day I posted I would let you ladies here know a new post was up. Well a week or so in I received an email from RealSelf advisors that we are NOT allowed to post websites on this site to other sites, its in there rules. So although I found that to be a wierd rule whenwe want to share tidbits with each other I stopped posting my website in the various forums. A week or so later the ladies & I in the March forum decided we wanted to start a Weight Loss group, but wanted to be able to freely post links to other helpful sites. So I said I would look into it. So once I secured us a new forum to share info on I Private Messaged it to some of the interested ladies. Once again I was repremanded. You are not even allowed to PM a link to somebody else. That is obnoxious to me, but they say its the rules. Now you will see a link or two from other ladies, but I think I was "flagged" because I had done it more than 5-7x's. Soooooo long story short this is why on a few of my posts you will see my comments removed. I just didn't want any new people thinking I had done or said something rude or disrespectful to others. Many still ask to see my blog idk if this is allowed, but it is not a link so I don't think I am doing anything wrong. Quite a few of our ladies here are guest bloggers sharing their journey & tips to help the next ladies along in the BR Journey.
