How are you feeling now that you have had you BR? I am sure you are feeling better each day. Just think this time next year you will be sporting a cute bikini while at the lake or beach with your kids. Good luck with your TT in a few months and keep us posted. I am planning on my TT next winter.

Hi girls had my breast reduction surgery on April...

Hi girls had my breast reduction surgery on April 12. I was at the hospital at 1pm got register. the nurse call me in ask me all the question put the iv on she gave me antibiotic before surgery.The Anastasia guy came in ask me all the question. They call my boyfriend in then my Doctor came in did the marks and then another nurse came in she was really nice she made me feel relax and happy on the way to the surgery room it was #3.I got in the room my Doctor was there and other nurses on of them introduce them self and told I am going to give you something to relax you quick. I look at the clock it was 312pm I move to the bed I look at the clock again it was 315pm. I woke up and saw a nurse saying we are sending you to your room you got here at 6pm is 730 pm. I honestly felt the difference on my back like a weight lift from my back. I was really surprised that I was not in pain. I had a patch in back of my ear. I had a folly in. next morning my Doctor came took a look and said everything was fine I want to see you Wednesday. She said she took out 400 from my left and 250 from my right.

I got home with the drains they where no problem I just was really nervous my 16 year old did it for me until Wednesday. I got home it was a little difficult because I have 5 children and is really noisy and the running around etc... well it was hard to fall asleep I had the burning, itching hard to grab a cup. hopefully I went to my first visit after surgery I was more nervous than the surgery day thinking I was going to pass out when she took out the drains the Doctor told me relax breath in and out when I looked the drains where out wow it was that easy no pain. She said I was funny and told me I see you next Wednesday and you could take a shower. I got home I had to wait for hubby to get home finally he did. He help me take everything out when I saw my boobs I cry I didn't no what to say my hubby look at me n didn't say nothing. It was shocking to me what a different all this years since I was young I had my big daughter when I was 16 I was 38 size with my 2nd child I went to a size 40 with my twins I went to a size 42 and with my 5th I went to a size 44. I had a gastro bypass in April 2010 and lost 100 pounds and went down to a size 36n38. so imagine how I feel its has been a blessing I am so great full I have been thru some much in my life that when you do something like this its like a miracle thanks to God for everything.
thanks kim you too
