Hi Everyone! I'm 19 years old, 5'2", and have always been very, very full-busted. It runs in the family and has always been a love-hate relationship for me. I'd been playing for the idea of getting a BR for a couple of years when I decided to schedule a consultation for September 15th.
Ultimately what did it was the fact that my 36F's make exercising the most awful experience on earth - the shoulder and upper back pain, as well as the grooves in my shoulders and severe headaches, has made me hate exercising more than ever and has made me unable to lose the weight I've gained from avoiding exercise.
Today, my procedure was scheduled for December 16th, so I can do the surgery during winter break from college. My doc says that he's seen girls my age have the surgery on Friday and go back to school on Tuesday- I just worry that I won't be able to wear a normal bra to school and that I may still feel discomfort at the point (based on the experiences I've read about on these forums & others) so I decided winter break would be the best time.
I'm trying to lose some weight before the surgery, but am hoping that afterwards it will be a lot easier for me to succeed in that realm. I just can't wait for the day when I can walk into a store and buy a pretty bra and not have to order some massive harness-type thing online, haha!
