Hey everybody I'm getting breast reduction surgery next Monday (10/24/11) . Words cannot describe how I'm feeling.
I'm 18 years old, and I started growing boobs when I was 9. Now I'm a fully 38DD and I'm only 5'3 and my weight is 120. I've always hated my self for having large breast. I feel so insecure and have very low self esteem . My dad felt my pains but couldn't do anything because he has no money and also bad credit for loans. I thought I would never get rid of my large breast.
To make a long story short, I decided to try my insurance but many people told me that the insurance hardly pay for this procedure. I was discouraged. But I still went ahead and talked to my primary care provider. He told me flat out that the insurance would not pay for it and that I was wasting my time. I was discouraged again . But still I asked him for a referral to go see a surgeon . He gave it to me and there I went.
I explained to the surgeon my situation and she perfectly understood me. I told her I'm also interested in joining the military right after high school. So she file a claim to the insurance she also included my symptoms, me wanting to join the military . She did tell me that I might not get approve because I don't have any documentation from physical therapy , or chiropractor . Anyways she did file, and exactly three days later , I was Approved.
I was mad excited. My insurance ends in two months so I schedule the surgery right away. Insurance paying for it 100% I'm lucky. I'm on Medicare ( priority partners ) .
I just have one question. What can I do to reduce swelling , and recover quickly so that I can return to school because I'm taking two weeks off . Thanks for reading.
