I only wanted to go from a 34A cup to a large C cup. I was booked in for my op with consmedical in Liverpool and a last miniute change of the implant size from 390cc to 360cc was made as the surgeon said I would end up around a D if they used 390cc.
I ended up a 34DD, I am glad they didnt put the larger implant in me but didnt exactly get what I had asked for, however, at the time and up until the rupture, I wasnt complaining. My mind has been consumed with my breasts since I discovered I was one of the victims of PIP and I had a rupture, I had no symptoms whatsoever and at the hospital I was queued with 7 other girls being checked who all had symptoms of swelling, redness, pain etc.. I had none of this infact, I thought I would be fine. 4 out of the 7 of us had ruptured implants.
Anyway, I think about how I will look and feel every minute of every day, I am consimed with it and want to move on from it so much. I am excited and embracing this as much as possible but I am terrified that I will hate myself but only time will tell.
Nobody other than my partner has ever seen my breasts, I dont wear low cut tops or show them off I enjoy the shape they give me and I wonder if I will miss that or be ok.
I will let you know how I get on.
Got my Pre-op on Friday. It occured to me the...

I cant wait for my thoughts to not be about myself, i feel so selfish and self obsessed, "what will this top look like, what size bra will i be, will i look like I have lost weight, or will i look chubbier, will i be able to feel sensations again, what will that dress look like"
Roll on the days after the surgery and when I have healed when I have the answers to these questions, Its just a shame that there is no sign of justice yet. Lets hope the lawyers put thre pressure on!
Had my pre-op yesterday, went through what to...

I have been counting down the days to the surgery for almost 5 months and now that It is a week away, I am starting to worry. I was so looking forward to moving on and hoping I will be happy with my body after the surgery and focusing on being positve.
I bought some small sports bras yesterday which made me feel quite sad, it is now dawning on me that I have a hard time ahead, emotionally. I just hope I feel like so many of the women who have posted thier images and stories.
Only a couple of days left for me now!! I am lost...

I cant wait to go shopping, I have saved a bit of money so i can go and buy myself lots of stuff, retail therapy, I am looking forward to buying pretty little bra's and not the horrible DD's. But then in the same moment I am s frightened that I will become more insecure and hateful towards my image, which makes me angry for still being the person I was before the implant. But.. i am speculating on how i might feel and will not know until after the op so i just need to relax! EEEK!
Had my op 2 days ago, I am not in too much pain...

The doctor too pictures of the implants after removal. the right one was ruptured and my right breast is a little more painful as the doctor had to give it a thorough clean. I am on pain killers but I am not in terrible pain and I am generally more comfortable and less sickly than when I had the implants inserted. My mouth has a few ulcers which isnt helping but I am getting there. I havent looked at the breasts yet, I am waiting for the drains to come out before I have a look. But I will keep you posted, Thank you for your well wishes xxx
Had my drains out today, It wasnt as bad as i had...
