32 Years Old 1 Child 38 DD .....i Think? - New Orleans, LA

I went from a petite size B after birth control...

I went from a petite size B after birth control and a child & breastfeeding to a DD.....last i check..... I'm looking forward to the breast reduction still waiting for the insurance to approve.... I know it would change my life I recently just had neck surgery... I'm tired of the pain in the neck and shoulder im always rubbing Icy Hot, on my shoulders... the stories on this website has been very inspiring.... have anyone else have to deal with insurance and how long has the approval process been?
Still waiting should know something by mid May

Welcome to the community.  You will feel pretty amazing once this is done.  Your story sounds the same as mine!  It's just not fair that the girls have to grow as we age.

I am hoping you hear back quickly from the insurance company.  They are all a little different with approval times.

I Got Approved

I finally got approved now waiting on a surgery date.....do anyone have any suggestions on the things I should buy for after surgery
Congratulations! The members of this site have given some excellent suggestions for post surgery. You will need some Tylenol to help with pain mgmt even though you will get prescription meds from the PS. Bring a pillow for the ride home to put against your chest & seat belt so you don't feel every bump on the road. You will also need some comfortable sportswear that hook in the front. Can get some Hanes ones at walmart for $8. But other women have recommended several other bra just search the site. Also you will want some extra gauze badges. Once your incisions are healed you will want to get some bio oil. Get some comfortable sleep shirts & regular shirts that button in the front. If I think of anything else I will let you know.

Surgery date is in!!

My breast surgery date will be June 19th I'm so excited it hasn't sunk in yet

pre opt appointment

Had my pre opt today 17 days left!
Congratulations! One thing I didn't have which was very helpful was a bigger mirror I could hold to look at my incisions and apply tape, etc. My bathroom counters are high and of course, bending leaning up isn't really a good idea after the surgery. I have some bio oil stuff too. And I really wish I would have been more diligent about moisturizing before surgery.

swollen veins

So I'm 4 weeks into my healing sage...when I start to notice an achy feeling..right under my breast...asked my nurse what could it be....and she told me it was swollen veins that happens sometimes after your breast reduction....that it will heal itself.... Have anyone else ...who may have dealt with this?
