Last week I received a call to schedule my surgery. It is scheduled for March 27th, 2013. Next Friday I have a mammogram also so I'm pretty nervous about that. Mostly because I've heard it's pretty rough, but its gotta get done. For now my goal is to stay as healthy and fit as possible until the surgery. Stay off the caffeine, alcohol and try to exercise as much as my schedule allows.
Mammogram and ultrasound are done, I am good to...

This is what drives me crazy, after all these years of people hearing me complain about back/neck/shoulder pain and seeing me on pain killers and muscle relaxers and seeing how I can't sit or stand for too long due to back strain, and I still hear how silly I am for doing this. It's good to be somewhere, even if it is a cyber community, where you are understood. I appreciate everyone sharing their experiences, so I felt like I had to share mine as well. My mother and husband are supportive, and that's all that matters to me. I look forward to next Wednesday, March 27th!!

My doctor has been so great and helpful throughout the whole process. I am so glad that I requested another PS after my experience with the first one. Pain is tolerable, I take 1-2 pain killers in the span of 24 hours, except yesterday I didn't take any. I am starting to feel the itchiness and the zingers everyone has been talking about. More so on my left breast. I added some more pictures. So far they look like frankenstein boobies, but I look forward to seeing the healing process.
And please do not send me creepy private messages offering to pay for more pictures of my breasts. It freaked me out a bit, I am only sharing my experience and pictures for others to learn from my experience, not to get paid for it, thanks.
I went in for my consultation in December and spoke with two different surgeons. The first I wasn't too happy with so I requested a second opinion. Mostly because the first surgeon I spoke with was really short with me and I wanted to feel comfortable and happy with the person who is doing the procedure. The second surgeon, I really liked. He was informative, answered all my questions and was very patient with me.
