Getting Started At 17 Years Old - New Brunswick, Canada

I'm not quite sure how to start this off.. Im around 5'3", weigh between 135 and 140 pounds and am a bra size of 34DD. I'm quite nervous I'll get a lot of harsh judgement for my age as I am only 17 years old. So I'm feeling a little uneasy posting this. I'll hope for the best though because I've seen nothing but support for others on here.

As I said I'm only 17, but with the pain my chest causes me I feel much older. Ive had trouble with my back for years. More then once I had gone for X-rays to try and figure out what was wrong, yet nothing would ever show. We came to realize the problem wasn't my back. I work in an environment where I am constantly on my feet now, and will in the future as well as I am planning on becoming a hair dresser. Although the way it is now I won't be able to do so. I constantly find myself twisting and turning or bending over to try and relieve my back and shoulder pain throughout the day.

Along with the pain I'm not comfortable with my chest at all. It just doesn't look the way it should. Im very embarrassed of it all the time, especially seasons where it is harder to hide andnp conceal. Trying to find a bathing suite during the summer, and then after finding one constantly readjusting in it to make sure nothing pops out just isn't how it should be. I should feel comfortable and happy with how I look.

I've always wanted smaller perky boobs. And now it seems like that might happen for me. After speaking with my family doctor about it she referred me to a plastic surgeon. I expected it to take forever but within a month and a half of being on the waiting list I got an appointment!

I had my consultation this past thursday. It was fairly quick and to the point. Ive had this doctor before when he was working on my keloid scar, so I was familiar with him. He looked at me, answered my questions, told me about the incisions they'd be doing ( which is the anchor, what I was hoping for ), and then gave me the okay.

We're now waiting to hear from his office for when the surgery will be. They're booking it in December, we're just hoping it coincides with my winter break from school.

I'm unbelievably excited. I spent so much time on this site reading others' stories and couldn't wait to have my own, its finally going to happen! Of course the doctor said I still have the option to back out, in case I change my mind, but this is like a dream come true. I can't wait for the relief it'll be and how great it'll feel to have the pain gone!

Ive been reading through different posts on here and I've seen lots of people talking about drains and how painful they are. I didn't think to ask about this at my consultation. Could anyone help me out and inform me of what these are? I'd really appreciate it!

The countdown begins today, I got my date for surgery! It is booked for the 19th of December. I am so excited! Finally having a date set makes it feel so much more real now.

I can't wait for how much better I'm going to feel about myself. I'm anxiously awaiting being able to be comfortable in my own skin.

57 days to go!
