Hi everyone, I have been reading some of your reviews on this site for a while now and it has definitely eased my troubled mind a bit....especially on issues about the side effects of surgery :( I am terrified of never waking up from surgery again or going brain dead or in a coma for years etc etc :/
My surgery is for tomorrow! I am soooo excited to be small...I started developing early...I think about 11-12 years old! and they just kept growing and growing for the past 10 something years! I think I am currently about a 36DD, I know I def dont fit into anything smaller without spilling over...and I might be slightly bigger than a DD even....not sure. but I have also gained about 20-25 pounds over the past year :( personal issues and stress had me eating way more than I should have had and not exercising much...I am right now about 30 pounds overweight and am hoping to lose most of it over the next few months...however these balloons on my chest have to go....NONE of my clothes EVER fit right... all my friends ( even the heavier ones) have tiny boobies and I am always the biggest one and this has had a HUGE effect on my self-esteem and confidence levels...I hated being this way to the point that I started to avoid parties, gatherings, and just even going out much...I always wore layers to make them as small as possible...also being only 25, they sag like they are at least 100 years old. I am not sure why :S:S
I know I should have lost at least some of the weight before the surgery and I did try but again, due to things i was going through, I never quite managed to lose any significant amount.... but I also tend to carry most of my weight on my thighs (they are humongously huge) so I am hoping after I am all healed up from the surgery, I shall be able to rollerblade/run my way to smaller thighs and flatter tummy and hopefully a smaller breast size...
I told my surgeon I wanted to be a size B...I would have said 'A' but even I know that is pushing the limit...but she said a 'C' is most likely...but I really really want to be a B :( We shall see what happens after the surgery I guess. I know its unrealistic to want a size too small, but I do think a B would be perfect my body size/frame and that a C might still be a bit too big...but also again, when I do lose some of this weight, I may lose some off my chest...hence may go down to my desired size.
Anyway, I shall update you all after surgery. plz keep me in prayers. I am really worried about it :( I have not told anyone about it except my mom...my surgery is around 11 am that morning and if all goes well, I should be home by 6pm. I have not told my friends...to be honest, I dont know quite what to say to them...they may not understand, and even if they do, i feel so embarrassed about it :s what do you all think? should I tell them? I was thinking of telling them after the surgery is done...but I dunno :s and these friends I am talking about are like sisters to me..I have known them for more than half my life and trust them and love them...and i know its stupid to think they wont understand...I guess I am just scared about the process and what if everything doesnt go right...
Ive attached some pics...mostly with clothes on but you get the idea of how big they are... :)
here's to hoping I come back all happy and ok wed evening to update you all. :) xx
Tomorrow is the day!! scared out of my mind but if...

I actually came home the day of surgery and rested...I was only on percocet and I am off it now...I took it for about a day and then thought I could handle the pain :)
I am now 2 days post-op and am healing nicely :D
I dont remember being put to sleep at all, one second I was on the bed being told I should feel all relaxed, the next I was being woken up in the recovery room....I was very groggy and was mostly in and out of sleep in the recovery room, the pain wasn't too bad (probably a 5 out of 10)....I was on Percocet for the next two-something hours before I was sent home.
I was bandgaed up really tight for about 24 hours before I went into post-op appointment to get changed into a bra...and that is when i really got to see them....they are so small! :):):):):):) probably a small C right now...but I already feel so light...you read all these stories where women have gone through this and say how light they've felt and you expect to feel that way as well...but you truly only feel the benefits once you've gone through the surgery yourself...the lightness, the feeling of not being 'pulled forward' by the huge weight on your chest....I can already sit up straighter.. :)
Right now, I am in my old DD bra and it is so much looser than before yay! But I read somewhere that even when the sweeling goes down, the final size tends to go up as the breasts get rounder/fuller? is this true? What do you ladies think? Will my boobs get bigger or smaller as the swelling goes down? also I have this excess weight to lose and really hope my breasts dont start sagging...they are so perky right now :D also, ice helps with the swelling right? and how important is a surgical/compression bra? My surgeon told me to not worry about that and to just wear a bra without an underwire :s I am not sure what to do about that...
If you have any questions please ask! Id love to answer all of you :)
In a lot of pain right now. I think the whole...
