I'm 26 years old with 36DDD to 38DD breasts. I weigh about 200 lbs at present and love to be active and excersize. Due to my big girls, I have excersize induced asthma, etc...This size of my large breasts has plagued me since I was 15 years old. I developed early and have had stress dealing with them since then. Due to the large size of my breasts, I have dealt with numerous back issues as well as rashes etc. with no full relief. I was very excited to have surgery until I went to my pre-op appointment today and the doctor and nurse reiterated that the insurance requres 500 g removed per side. I got a bit nervous about this, but then remembered the consult where the Dr. mentioned he thought I'd end up with a C cup, which would be my ideal goal. I sure hope they can make that happen. My main concern is that they can't guarentee that I will have back relief or what size I will be after...and there is no turning back the clock after the procedure is done...I guess my ultimate fear is that they will turn out too small in proportion to my body and that it won't provide the back pain relief I was looking for...but I keep thinking how could it not? Just a little nervous, but not willing to throw in the towel on the only light at the end of the tunnel I've had in regards to this issue in years...I want my body and independence back!

I have my first shower yesterday, that was by far the worst. Seeing and smelling everything was much too much for me and I almost fainted/vomited, but made it through...I don't have drains, but one side has an incision that is still oozing a bit but I had my mom look and she said it looks like it is healing very nicely...I will post pics later when i feel up to it...due to the short scar technique the surgeon used, they look very high right now and will drop down, but I think they will look very nice when all is said and done....back to relaxing for now...
Day 5...no real changes...feeling more and more...

Day8. I have a ton of itching, which I expected, however, around the left nipple there is a bit of a red spot that is radiating out that is making me a bit nervous...I'm watching it to see if it's just ready from the itching or possible infection. I've had cellulitis before and I'm concerned with that :( Might call tomorrow to see if I can have it looked at just in case, I feel like I'm being a hypochondriac, but after all...these are my boobs/nipples and I've gotten this far, I don't want to risk having anything bad happen! Although my experiences are far from ideal, I'm happy to share...
Other than that...my energy levels have been all over the place, yesterday was pretty good, this morning also good and then I had lunch with a friend and during and after that I was feeling drained. I need to keep telling myself that I need to have equal parts rest/work right now and I'm not good at that. In a way I feel ready to be back at work, but then another day ends an I'm happy I wasn't there because it would have really pooped me out. Thankfully, I have another week off if I need it.
Day 9 ...got in to see the plastic surgeons...

The girls shape is great and the pain on the left side is really dissapating as well, not sure if it was the infection or just healing...everything is looking good...a little bit of back pain just due to sitting so much, but hoping once i get back to the gym, this goes away...I'm also ready to get out of this ACE wrap and into another type of bra, we'll see what the appt Friday brings, last time they said everything, with the exception of the infection was healing very nicely...might take a nice nap today and take it easy.
