I've been lurking on this site for a min and I have been reading everyone's encouraging posts and I have finally decided to encourage someone else.
Where to start...? I am 21 years old, 5'1, 200 pounds, and tired of dragging around laundry bags. I am tired of too small bras, stupid looking button ups, and having to dress like my grandma when going out with my friends... lol!
I've had large breasts since I was 11... and I've been a G cup since i was 13. Funny enough they didn't start bothering me until I got to college. I started to notice back pains when doing things like sitting on my floor studying. I tried yoga, pilates, I lost weight, gained it back and no relief.
I finally ran into someone who told me about the surgery and how insurance would over it. So I went for it... I changed doctors, got referred to a plastic surgeon and 4 days after my consultation, I was APPROVED! I was amazed at how simple the process was.
So here I am, 2 days before my surgery, nervous, anxious, and super excited. Also Im a little disappointed that I have to prolong graduation for this surgery... but hey, c'est la vie right?
But anyway... Thanks to all who have posted and shared their stories... You were a bigger help than you know! I'll be sure to update soon!
Warning! please excuse the non cohesive run on...

Hey everyone! Im 3 days post op and not in too much pain. i just feel uncomfy. I had a little bit of leakage on my bra when i woke up yesterday but i dried up. I also washed up yesterday and took the surgical bra off. That felt awesome. Overall I love the way the girls look. I look much smaller.... i barely recognize myself. I hate being restricted though! I cant do anything but sit, sleep, eat, and watch tv. Its getting booorrrinnng!!!! lol! I went to walmart with my mom today and that exhausted me. I never realized how big that store was. I've been trying to drink coconut water but its disgusting! blah! But minus all of the childish complaints... it was super worth it. I never realized how big of an effect my breasts had on my life! sheesh!
Some questions for the post op ladies:
Are you always tired? I take at least 2 naps during the day and then still sleep through the night.
Did you have any leakage early on?
Did you get a little bloated in the tummy area?
Hey Ladies... I am currently 18 days post op and...

Has anyone else dealt with wound separation? How did you all handle it?
I really need some positivity and encouragement... because all i keep thinking about is my breast falling apart. = (
