6 weeks post-op - feeling soooo much better!

I am now 2 days post op. I don't know why I chose...

I am now 2 days post op. I don't know why I chose itty bitty as a user name, I guess I'm not used to them yet! I am 34 years old. I weigh 100 pounds, and I've never had boobs. They got even smaller after breast feeding. Operation went great. Dr. Husain was wonderful! I am feeling pretty sore and I am still getting sick (not sure if it's from anesthesia or pain meds).


I went with 290cc because I wanted them to look proportionate to my body. I find them a bit big right now, but from what I've read, swelling is normal.

Changed my profile name to no more padded bras because that was all I wore!

I thought I'd add information about the day of operation. I think the hardest part for me was not eating from midnight until after the surgery. The nurses were great and kept my mind off of things. They were very professional and friendly. I was there two hours before surgery. A lot of waiting but because nurses were so nice, the time flew by, oh and my husband was there too! ha, ha. The doctor marked where the implants were going to lay and where he had to make incisions. I walked to the operating room but some places wheel you in. The anesthesiologist put in the IV. I felt dizzy and nauseous, and I was just thinking it's going to be two hours from now, but I will feel like it's one minute. And sure enough, I woke up and it was over! I had new boobs. You have to stay in the post-op room for about an hour, I stayed for about two. I started feeling sick right at the end, because I ate a piece of toast. I took extra drugs because I was feeling sore. Came home and rested, but I did get sick a few times. And I have no appetite which is weird because I'm always hungry.

I guess I should add that I got moderate 290cc sub...

I guess I should add that I got moderate 290cc sub muscular. I hope I got all the terminology right.

Is anyone out there worried like I am that something will go wrong? That they'll collapse or they'll end up looking crooked. I feel like I'm constantly questioning if I should be doing the things I do around the house, like I did the dishes today. I just want everything to go right. I love the changes to my body and don't want to go back. This almost feels like it's not even real. Anyway just having one of those days where I'm thinking too much, ha ha! Glad I took today off of work. And I hope no one notices when I go back to work, although I had done a gradual increase in padding leading up to surgery.

Woke up fine. Thought I was back to normal. ...

Woke up fine. Thought I was back to normal. Yeah, I'm not on meds any more! Yeah, I can actually get off my couch. I have two toddlers, so this point is pretty important. I played with them, we went to Costco. As much as it was nice to be out among the living, I think I did too much. Very hard to do things when you can't lift them. My girl wanted to go to the public washroom and my husband isn't taking her to grosse boy public washrooms. Washing hands looked ridiculous when she had to stand on my knees. She thought it was fun. I hope I don't do anything to screw up the recovery process. Well, I guess we'll have to play "sleep", the wonderful game of taking out all the blankets, making beds and pretending to sleep. I have a wonderful husband who is helping out which is why I have a few minutes to write this (amazingly), but I feel like I should do something. And just realized that I finally have bigger boobs than before mentioned husband! I'm so excited; it's so worth it all!

Went for my week after post-op appointment. ...

Went for my week after post-op appointment. Doctor said everything was looking great. I think I'm just impatient for them to drop and soften. They are so high.My doctor said it wasn't necessary to massage them, but he did show me how to if I chose to do so. I am still very satisfied with the results, and can't believe my eyes whenever I look down and see boobies! I am feeling more and more like myself every day. This surgery so far is totally worth it!

2 and a half weeks and they are super sensitive!...

2 and a half weeks and they are super sensitive! When will they start feeling like part of my body? Is this normal? They look great but I can't stand to have anything touching them and feel uncomfortable most of the time.

6 weeks is where it's at. I feel so much better...

6 weeks is where it's at. I feel so much better and have since I was about 4 weeks out. They have dropped nicely and am loving them every day!!! This is the best decision ever and the only thing I regret is not getting this done earlier! - new pics of 6 weeks
