The Countdown .......

Hi everyone my name is Shakia and I am a single...

Hi everyone my name is Shakia and I am a single mother to a lovely little three year old girly. I have finally decided after going back and forth with this dilemma for 10 years. I am finally deciding on have breast reduction surgery to minimize my 42H breast. I am currently in the process of losing a substantial amount of weight which started at 260lbs. I am not 248 and slowly losing. By the time I have surgery I am hoping to be at a whopping 160! I am 5'4 and I feel most comfortable at around that size. But my breast on the other are an achy pain in the butt and they have gotten me enough attention for two life times. So I begin here and thank everyone for what ever input they can share! Thank You!!

You will feel so much better. My surgery is in 13 days. Good luck with your surgery? When is your surgery date?

I made a couple of typos in both my post and my responses to other members. I apologize. I had a very rough weekend because my back spasms have been very frequent lately and very unbearable. I couldn't get an appointment sooner with my PS because he won't be back in the office until the 1st week in April. :-( I would really like to get this ball rolling so I can prepare myself full for this surgery. I started physical therapy again and this time I plan on finishing it because that will be the deciding factor if my insurance will cover the procedure or if ill have to finance it. Plus I have the pre spring break blues because I feel so lazy and tired.
Good luck with your surgery! I had mine last Friday and I went from a 40H/I to a D (possibly even full C!) after my swelling goes down. The surgery is SO worth it!

I have an appointment next week with my plastic surgeon and I am so amped up! I have finally started the ball rolling with my fitness routine and research for clean eating and I'm trying learn how to do yoga. Wish me luck!
Good luck, im in the same boat as you and this website has been a dream. I went to see my PS yesterday and this waiting on my answer from the insurance company will be the death of me. If you could believe me my breast are bigger than yours, not sure of exact size but to put it in prospective i can not fit any bras in lane bryant and i have a fairly medium frame. I look forward to taking this journey with all you ladies. I hope i get the confidence to post pics, you ladies are inspiring though.

So ladies its happening quicker then I imagined and I went to see my plastic surgeon and she told me that I was approved by my insurance to cover the full cost breast reduction surgery. I'm so excited I cannot wait till the day that I am fully healed so I can see what they look like. I'm excited! I know that the road will be very hard to recovery;but all in all I'm just so excited that I got approved I'm very excited that I have support from my family, my friends and the people on this site. I appreciate everyone!
Cool
