Four more days until I go in for surgery. I got breast implants when I was 22 in Sept 2004. I was a 36A and weighed 112lbs. I got 350cc in each breast and became a 36 C/D. I am now 30 and weigh 145lbs and now have 2 kids and my breast size is a 36DD. I am 5'1 and I feel like very top heavy. I can't weight to get the implants taken out and also get a lift. My surgeon told me he thinks I will be a B/C after the surgery. Which will be much better than a DD. I am very excited to get them taken out and can't remember how it feels to have normal size breasts. I will have general anesthesia which I have never had before. The costs above cover 5 visits. The consultation was very helpful and I spoke with Dr. Mcfadden and he went over everything and showed me before and after pictures of the surgeries he has preformed. The second visit was pre-op visit. During that time they explain everything that you ill need to know before surgery. They also give you your prescription to the medicines you will need to take the day before, during and after surgery. The nurses there are very helpful as well. The next appointments will be the surgery, day after surgery and 1 week post-op to take the stitches out. I will up date everyone soon and I will also make sure to post plenty of before and after pics as well.
I can't say I regret my implants completely....

I have 3 more days until surgery and I am very excited and a little nervous of course. I am currently taking Bromelain 3 days prior to surgery. I was told to take 2 pills 3 times a day 3 days before surgery and 1 week after surgery. Along with arnica after sugery for 1-2 weeks to help with healing and brusing. I am also prescibed oxycodone, an antibotic and a medicine to help with nausea. I currently take methimazole for my hyperthyroidism and I am not sure if it will effect any of the other percriptions I am supposed to take after surgery. I will make sure to talk it over with my doctor to make for sure.
I started taking my Bromelain today and will...

2 more days til surgery and I have been trying to catch up on all my school work and house cleaning to prepare for surgery. I even got a bed rest pillow with arms and a u shaped neck pillow as well. I decided to buy some special pillows since I am going to have to sleep on my back and I am a side sleeper all the way. To me laying on my back is what I consider to be the "wake" position.
Tomorrow is the big day. I am feeling a little...

I was then wheeled to the operation room where the surgery took place. They placed an oxygen mask on me and then switched the IV to the general anesthesia to knock me out completely. The next thing I could remember was waking up to the nurse asking me if I needed any pain medicine and I told her no. I was informed that I had peed on the operating table a little. I had asked if I should have gone to the ladies room before surgery and they figured that it was just my nerves. So from now on I will make sure to use the restroom before surgery and especially after being given an IV. After I woke up I felt drunk and hungover at the same time. My husband then drove me home and I was was home before I knew it. When I got home I felt groggy and immediately went to go lie down to get nice and comfy. I got home at 12:30pm.
The pain was very minimal and it just felt like a sunburn. My throat was a little sore and I didn't feel like eating anything. Peppermint Candies are the bomb when it comes to soothing the throat. After I ate I felt a little nauseated and sleepy so I took a nap. After waking up from my nap I didn't feel as groggy and my head felt much clearer from the general anesthesia.
I was also told that my implants were 390cc per breast instead of 350cc and that one boob would be a B+ and the other a C- after surgery. I hope that it won't be too noticable and from what I understand that is fairly common for most women to not have proportional breasts. My breast droop stage was a 1 1/2 on a scale from 1-3.
I have to go back tomorrow and I will update soon.
I just got home from the doctors office for my...
