The surgery date is just around the corner... 10 days and counting. This is something I've wanted for a very long time!
I had my first child at 16 - prior to that I was physically fit (ran distance in track) but the toll on my body was life changing to say the least. My daughter was born at a whopping 9lbs 12 oz and I went from 115 to 184lbs during that pregnancy. Since then I've had 3 other kids, each an additional blessing in my life, but also an additional sacrifice of my figure and confidence. I'm now 35 and can only vaguely remember wearing a bathing suit the summer before my first child.. 20 years ago!
I'm feeling so many different emotions - elated, excited, nervous, scared...
I've done so much research and seen more boobies in the last couple of months than I've seen in my entire life! I've looked at silicone vs saline, different incisions and submuscular vs subglandular. I've even watched videos of actual TT procedures. I've talked to other girls to find out what to expect, but in reality, I don't think I will ever be able to get ALL the answers and have to be willing to leave some of it to the unknown... for 10 more days at least!
I can't wait to be on the other side of this, working through recovery and able to share my experiences with the girls on here that are wondering and feeling the same things I have. I will post pictures of the before and after and details on the process as I go!
Tomorrow is the day! I'm excited and nervous but...

My breasts are have been going thru changes.. starting to soften, but appear to be rising higher on my chest. I know that its going to take a while to see the complete results, but its hard not to worry about complications.
I think Dr Katsaros did an amazing job though!

The shape of my breasts seem to change by the hour, they are still high, but aren't as hard. The bruising between and under them is definitely more noticeable than before. The drains are starting to be irritating. Follow up appt with the dr today, so we will see how everything is progressing!

I'm getting around on my own (and have been for days now), standing up straight (will be slightly bent and stiff after periods of sitting or sleeping).
