i am so sick of looking at before and after pictures, i swear i have seen all that there is ... watched all the live procedures there are out there , for hours . i dot think i will ever look at boobs the same again . i keep having these little anxiety moments where i get all stiff and take a deep breath , the wait is killing me , i bet i could count the hours . monday at 7 am is fastly approaching !! im getting so anxious i have to remind my self that i want this ! , i actually said bye to my boobs today. kinda weird but not realy at the same time .

wow i had expected to be in more pain then this, i am 5 hrs. post opp and have pain only from where i had muscle repair. when i stand and try to move, its a whole different story... makes me realize how much i use my abdominal muscles . my boyfriend has to dead lift my back up until i am leaning over enugh to not be using my abs , and a whole lot more, he really is being sooo patient. i am drowsy from the pain meds so sorry if this does not make any sence. i had my ps take a pic of me before he bandaged me up , i remember being happy but i cant picture it at all now

3am had to pee.. , cant get up with out my boyfriend/saviors help.i immediatly realize there is alot more pain when u have been sitting still for long periods of time. i started shaking/having muscle spasms. it felt like beginning of labor , but alot shorter. i took 3 vicoden and one valumne and slowly got in to bed with the help of my bf. i kept waking up just to make sure he was thre(really weird). i after realized it was because i had twilight sedation and would wake up when there was an extreme pain and ask the nurce to up the meds . is it common to remember alot of twilight sedation and also some of the pain ? and in one of my after pictures , one nipple is higher, will ths even out a little ?

constapation sucks, i was taking way more stool softeners then needed but it still happened. plan ahead for this, it was about the worst part of recovery so far . i also got my drains out, that does not hurt, dont be scared, really easy

Lying awake... Day like 18 po, uugh... Can't get comfortable. I am swollen, well I hope I am. No one can seem to say how swollen or how much my breasts or tummy will go down. I just feel like my stomach is the same as far as not being comfortable looking at it, it still sticks out... Hmm it's just one of those nights I guess . I am thankful for so much tho ! this is just a place I feel comfortable expressing my uncertainties and :( moments. I just miss the comfortableness of simple things like pajamas with no underwear, I hate this tight clingy spandex crap... Blah blah blah..

Swelling goes up... swelling goes down .. my smile...

swelling goes up... swelling goes down .. my smile goes up then my smile goes down. my body is just constantly morphing , so weird !! looking through my pics, some from last week look better then this week :/ dear self be patient ! grrrrrr
