Surgery done on mar 26.. I wanted maybe a small C..he said he would try. Depended on blood supply, density of breast, nerve and skin quality..ok..i thought anything was better than what i had...it took over four hrs! He took a little over one pound out of each side.put my aerolas back where they were once upon a time..like birth! He couldnt do some lipo because i had the max of lidocaine in my chest for a day, and was already out for a long time. He also felt that he cut through me so much, that i didnt need the extra lipo pain..i wanted the side boob gone..it is significantly less, but maybe later we will re visit. I had drains for one day only.
So the wierd thing for me is that he used only dissovable staples. I had never heard of it, but i was like ok..so i am healing and doing well..good home care etc..taking my meds and making progress..at about three weeks, my left aerola is just burning and puffy and swollen a little bit. I called it an angry pepperoni! I still have weight and apparwntly very dense breast so the bottom is pulling on the incision, and thus the aerolas. I feel like i am being shot with a staple gun...all day.. Three staples have decided not to dissolve and just pop out my damn incision and aerola..imagine that pain..especially the aerola..the other parts are kind of still numb, but i was freaking out. Went to the doc asap..and he had to pull them..i was shaking like a leaf..it wasnt as bad as i imagined it would be..but my breast really hurt always...except when i am sleeping. They feel every pot hole here..every breath of wind, every article of clothing or guaze. I would love to go to seep and wake up in four weeks and be better. Doc says the first six weeks is rough..well silly me, i thought ok, i am just about six weeks..i should be good...well im not...i have no regrets..except that should have done this years ago..this kicked my ass...my nerves in my breast are like what have you done? They are paying me back for cutting into them..anyone have ideas on relief for aerolas and nerves that hate me, i would appreciate it..oh i also got a mean paper tape reaction on day two! Haha that was fun..it spread across my top right boob. Thought i would rip my skin off...finally got better and less angry with gold bond powder...no one is touching me with a scalpel for awhile!!!
