Today is the beginning of my journey. I had my consultation and the wait begins. Hoping that insurance will cover my BR. I am 5'2, 48 years old and about 170. My breast are size 36 G/H.

Today I called insurance and they gave me my approval. I am pre-op on August 29, surgery on September 4. I am so counting the days. Can't wait.

I had a pre-op and per-registration this morning. I am scheduled to be at the hospital at 8:30 AM on Sept. 4. Doctor said surgery should take 2-3 hours. Was a little disappointed when he pointed out that I might not be able to have a C cup but he would do everything he can to get to a C. He was really pushing a D. Oh well, I was hoping for a C, but anything will be better that what I deal with on a daily basis. So now it is time, to start getting everything together and try and calm my nerves.

My nerves are going every which way. So ready for Tuesday to be here. I have a question, I told my doctor I wanted a C cup, so what cup size sports bra should I start out with. I purchased a D, but not really sure.

Now is the time for rest and lots of fluids. Give your body a good solid week of rest (two if you can swing it) and you will feel so much better because of it. Now is not the time to prove that you are wonder woman...save that for later :-D

Sports bras have a tendency to run small, so it should work! That's what I bought and I was comfy

WooHoo! It will be here soon :-D Your bra should fit, but if not you could always use an ACE wrap until it does. Good luck!

You are going to do great and be so happy you did this. I was an H-cup and wasn't able to hit that C-cup size, but I can tell you that even though I'm not as small as I had dreamt of being, I am still so much more comfortable, mobile, and happy than I was a year ago. Good luck and keep us posted!

I have an appointment on the August 29, and my surgery is scheduled for September 4. I'm still waiting on insurance, when I called today they said I should know something by the end of the week. That was given to a nurse for review on Monday. I'm excited but scared.

Dear Had. It took about 3 months for me to get approval. Our stats are similar. And we are the same age. I am one week post op and it's a truly life changing experience. I am sore and still leaky, but I am so looking forward to living a much more active life than I had been previously. Sending good thoughts and prayers your way!
