Tired of the CONSTANT PAIN! - Houston, TX

Hello All, I have been trying to find a doctor...

Hello All,
I have been trying to find a doctor who has reasonable rates for Breast Reduction surgery. I am not looking for someone with CHEAP rates, just reasonable. I have been denied by my insurance company UHC three times and each doctor that I've seen have deemed the operation MEDICALLY NECESSARY. But they still won't cover it. I'm sooo frustrated. My only other option is to pay out of pocket but as you all know BR are EXPENSIVE. I am a single mother of three and it is hard to even begin to save the money it would cost to have the surgery. My current breast size is a 48JJ and I am 5'1 and weigh 230 lbs. In January 2012 I weighed 272#s. I knew I had to change my life so I could be here for my children. I began dieting and in June I weighed in at 231#s. I continued to diet but it's hard to keep exercising with my breast being this heavy. If anyone here know why I can get my BR surgery for a REASONABLE rate please share. I tried to get financing but with that my credit did not allow. DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO... PLEASE HELP !!! I ONLY WANT A HEALTHY LIFE.

Ok so after being denied by my insurance company...

Ok so after being denied by my insurance company UNITED HEALTHCARE 3 times in four years I decided that I had to pay out of pocket if I wanted relief. I searched for a doctor who was GOOD not CHEAP because I believe you get what you pay for. So tomorrow Friday, March 22, 2013 my life will change. I have been carrying these things around for too long. I will be able to exercise like I want and NEED to without my large breast being in the way. To date, I have not posted any pics of my breast mainly because they are HUGE.. I have seen the pics on here of several woman who claim that they have LARGE breast ( and for many of you I would imagine that you do consider them large~not minimizing anyone's issue) but mine are REALLY GIGANTIC.. But tomorrow means a whole new ME!!! Wish me LUCK and PLEASE EVERYONE PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR ME... I am really nervous... I will post again in the morning. I have to be at the Surgery Center for 6:45 am so I will begin posting when I get up at 5:30 to discuss my feelings.

Ok so I am six days post op and I am a little sore...

Ok so I am six days post op and I am a little sore but no longer taking the pain meds. I was really scared giong into surgery but I prayed so I knew it would be okay. I was a 42 JJ anf now I'm in a 34-36 C. The relief I have experienced is wonderful. My doctor is AMAZING (Dr. John T Nguyen- Houston, TX) . I will be postun

I am feeling much better now, I am two weeks and...

I am feeling much better now, I am two weeks and two days post op and feeling so much better. I have not had any back pain since after week one. And again I am no longer taking any pain meds. I will be posting more pictures in another day or so. So many people ask me if I had Liposuction on any other part of my body because of how small I look now. Thanks everyone for your support.
