Day 16 Post Op - Guilford, CT

I finally got approved after all these yrs. I am 36 yrs old , 5'4"and overweight. I have an hourglass figure, but still look good. My first concern upon approval was the pain of the surgery. Then will my stomach be too big after. So I have come to accept my belly may big after but I will be able to see it without looking in the mirror. I will be reminded everyday of what I need to work on because I will finally be able to see it among other things.
I just hope I like the shape and my hubby does as well.
Oh, I am a "M", going to a "D" per doctor suggestion. I hope he is right bcuz I want to go smaller, but it might not go with my frame. Hoping at the same time I don't go too small. My hubby is used to me being bigger than a DD.

I woke up yesterday in the operating room feeling like my chest was on fire. So they gave me pain meds.
I've been taking my meds on a regular basis. I have been sleeping on my wedged pillow surrounded by two pillows to cradle my head.
I keep waking up to turn on my back. I can move around comfortably. Constant bathroom.runs. Other then that I am resting and healing.

I've been really itchy so continuing to take Benadryl. I am 7 days post op and no longer taking pain pills. I am feeling pain at different points of incision, it comes and goes. I had my bandages taken off two days ago because it was getting very loose. The swelling has gone down a lot. I can wait until the oozing at different points stop. Here is a updated pic from my doctor visit.

I am totally off pain meds and am back to work today. The day is half over and I wish I was home. I am feeling pain where I haven't before and am scared to pull a sitch. I am taking it easy today, but it feels like I am doing too much activity. Today is day 10 post op and I go to see the doctor for the first time tomorrow.

I took my shower and it felt good. No pain as I had feared. Here are my new pics.

Noticing the tightening of the stitches and it hurts. I am usually in constant pain. Out of the blue I will get really sharp pains. My aereola's are staring to itch so that a good sign. I still feel that my breast are to big, but everyone else keeps telling me they are a good size. My husband keeps making up songs about how I took his pride and joy away, but I love being smaller. Can't wait for the pain of the healing to be over.
