3 Days to Go, and Been Sick for over a Week, but Anxious to Do This - Long Island, NY

I am a young 55 yo, 5ft4in, although I weigh 185lbs, I am a size 12, as I work out with weights, although my breast size is a like a 40G, I have always shoved them into 40 DDD's, lol, the things we do! I am schedueled for my reduction in 3 days. I have found this site helpful to me, as making me more comfortable with the expectations, and anxiety leading up to surgery, and I will post my progress in the hopes I may be of help to someone else. My insurance is paying entire cost.

no go

My surgery was canceled, too risky due to the congestion I have in lungs. They wanted to reschedule for 3 weeks, however, I have decided to wait until the end of summer. Major dissapointment. >_

2 days to go

Started antibiotics, also got anti nausea meds just in case, feeling excited????

Made it !!!!

Finally had surgery yesterday 1/12 hours, feeling sore mostly from drains so far I'm please with results will post more soon , this is my before picture, will post after soon

Done !!!!

Surgery was yesterday everything went well my ps said she took a total of 5lbs off, will post more when I am not so groggy

3 days post op

Having drains removed today, I know I will be much more comfortable, I am amazed at how high my nipples are, &!how perky my breast are, I feel the difference already

Drains out 4 days post op

My ps told me to take a shower on my 2 day out , however I waited till my 4 day, after drains were out , still very little brusing, have gauze padding under surgical bra, although I ordered the marena bra from Amazon, I find it totally useless as the large doesn't fit, too tight , and cups are cut like a Demi bra , what a waste , thankfully my ps gave me 2 bras, will shop for others later this week

6 weeks post op

still a little swollen hope these scars fade more, otherwise, very pleased , feel like a different person
