Its About Time for Me. - Jefferson City, MO

Like most of you I developed very young. I remember wearing my first bra the end of my 4th grade year. By the time my 8th grade year came around I was already a c/d bra. I was called many names and teased growing up. By my senior year in high school I was a size g and captain of my swim team. I always wanted my breasts smaller and was not allowed to try younger. College came and went got married. Six years ago I tried to get a reduction and was denied. I forgot about it until we changed insurances with my husbands company when a friend of mine in town told me I should try again because BCBS of tx was the same insurance she was approved for and did not have to jump through any hoops. January 11 of this year I made an appointment with the same ps. She sent my information off and by January 30th the predetermination of benefits was approved. I went on a cruise on February 9th and got back the 21st. to find out I was approved for surgery. My surgery is scheduled for May 3rd. I am a size J/K bra and looking forward to a c/d. I will post pics soon. I have been reading the site for a couple of weeks now keeping up on most of you who recently had theirs done and the ones that are about to go under. I find myself like everyone else a little nervous. I have no idea why this is not my first surgery. I do have one question though. I do not like the button down pj's that are out there. I have been looking at tube dresses for the recovery. I have one now that will fit my j/k breasts and was wondering if anyone thinks those will be to binding? Any help will be appreciated...

Just got done with my pre op. Surgery is scheduled for the 3rd of May. I am looking at a 6 hour surgery with at least 2600 grams removed from each breast. I am looking for some zip up tops and tube dresses to wear after surgery. Here's to 13 days and counting.

Tomorrow, tomorrow I love you tomorrow.. You'll...

Tomorrow, tomorrow I love you tomorrow.. You'll only a day a way.. Woo Hoo. not that I am excited or anything. Surgery will be around 6hrs. I am getting things ready for tomorrow. I am sure as he night goes I will start to get nervous. Good luck to all of the other ladies out there who are getting this done.

I had to be at the hospital at 6am and surgery was at 745. Like most of you have said. WOW they were on fire when I woke up. Nothing like Morphine to cure the burn. Now to answer all of your burning questions. I had 6803.8 grams removed total 15 lbs.. wow.. Trust me I can feel it. So I started at a M and made it down to after swelling of course a d. That is fine by me. She said recovery will take a little longer then most of you guys. I lost a little over 1/2 liter of blood. I hope all of you who had surgery yesterday is recovering well. I am off to bed well my recliner that is. Try to update tomorrow.

Sorry it has been awhile ladies. Long story short....

Sorry it has been awhile ladies. Long story short. I lost my nipple and areola on my left breast. Also had the fat inside it rot and die. I have been going through her cutting out and packing my hole with bleach and saline soaked guaze. I have no feeling in that side so I don't feel her cutting away or poking around. Good news is I do not have an infection was tested a couple of weeks ago. I still get tired really fast. I am up walking a bit during the day but mostly when sitting in a recliner reclining so my body will spend the energy healing itself. Its funny how I can wake up with full energy at 8am and need a full nap by 1 or 2pm. This has not been an easy road but I would do it all over again. In a heart beat.

I posted some photos and they are very graphic but I wanted someone who might be facing the same fate to see what the process was for me. If you have a weak stomach I would suggest that you skip over them. When I change my dressings I will take another one and post it so you can see the difference of the ones posted. I hope every one is healing well and has not had any complications.
