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. >_

Oh well my surgery was canceled, anesthesia person said too risky to do it, because I still have a lot of congestion in my lungs from being sick. Talk about going from a high to low. I'm not going to reschedule until after the summer now.

I haven't even seen a PS yet but have been dreaming about this for years. I always thought I'd get it done in the dead of winter when there isn't anything else to do outside. Hope you feel better!

My breast also fits in the tanks like that also. Its like the built in bra does nothing for us. I know you can't wait for it to fit like it's suppose to. Good luck on your surgery and I can't wait to hear an update.

Shout out Long Island! I'm from Wantagh myself (in Florida now) and my surgery is in 10 days. I'm nervous, of course, but getting to the point where this has become a reality is like a dream come true for me. Mine will be covered 90%. Can't wait to wear the clothes the smaller women wear. I'm going to pack up my 40D bras and donate to charity. Happy thoughts!
