I have lost a lot of weight and my tummy has the extra skin that will not go away. I went in to see my PS and as part of my visit we discussed the overly large breast that sag to my belly button. Because of neck,back and shoulder issues my breast reduction is covered by my insurance. To have both procedures done I save on cost for the surgical center and anesthesia.
My procedures are scheduled for April 29th. I'm excited and glad to have everyone here giving advice on the recovery process.
So I think I've accomplished all my tasks. Laundry...

I usually take a water pill for my blood pressure I've been told not to take it because it may kick in during surgery...duh why didn't I think of that.
I was told to bring photo ID and my insurance card. My BR is being covered by insurance.
They gave specific directions to the surgical center.
I'll post more updates as soon as I'm able.

Well I'm almost 1 month PO. I'm happy that the...

My ps said that my upper abs did not require a lot of muscle repair but that my upper abs are more swollen. He said it should look great by the three month mark. I just have to learn to be patient.
Onto my breasts. I went to VS Wednesday to be measured and measures (after my reduction) at a 36DD I'm really happy with the size but I thought I was going down to a full C but with my body type he felt this was the perfect size for me. He said he took 4 pounds off my breasts ... can you imagine??? So needless to say I still need to relax and fall into a normal shape but they look good. I'm still not too happy with the left nipple so he said If at 3 months it still hasn't resolved he will correct it in his office. So I'm cool with that.
I'm just excited to be able to go swimming on Monday it's supposed to be about 90. Plus I can sleep normally now yay me.
I promise this weekend I will post some pictures. That's all for now.
Hey all. It's been a while since I've been on here...

Dr Wolf is so nice. His bedside manner is lovely. He made me laugh so I did not feel my nerves kicking in. He explained things in a way I can understand.
