Well it's been 2 weeks since I've seen the new PS...its really depressing to play the waiting game. Reading all the posts and seeing the photos gives me hope.

Waiting for the approval is horrible, but as Natalie says it does give ample time to read reviews and learn about the process ahead. Even though I was inpatient as h** I am now glad I had the extra time. Thanks to RS I learned about what bras to get for post op, scar treatment (I'll follow my PS instructions and use tape for 3 months), what things indicate trouble etc. This community has been of so much help :)

I've been reading but not updating, I have been a little depressed because the process is taking so long. Yesterday I FINALLY got my letter from my primary doctor. I know it was because I had to go to my followup but I'm still happy none the less. Everyone's updates are very informative and it's great to see all the results, good and bad. Tomorrow I send the letter to my PS so he can forward all to insurance...I know my time is coming soon.

Ok so I met with the new PS today...I liked her and her staff. She asked if I had a choice would I want to be 'too small' or 'too large' and since I've never had the experience of being 'too small' I chose that option. LOL She also said that she would take between 750-1000 grams out of each boob...if that happens, I will be at my target weight w/out working out...yay me. Now I start the waiting game again but I feel so positive that this time is my tim

I've been reading all the posts and I must say everyone that's crossed over your pups are amazing. So happy for you all. Keep updating all your experiences for all us waiting our time. Be patient for the end result, as I understand it it could be 6 months before you are there. Happy healing...be blessed.

Getting closer, had my preop yesterday had all my questions answered. I'm not too sure I can handle the drains but my daughter will be here to help me. She is a future nurse so she can take care of mom. Lol. I am sooo ready to be small but I'm really nervous too. I told her to go as small as possible but I don't have a clue what that would be. I see everyone getting extra sports bras one band size greater but I tried my on for giggles and laughs an I don't see how it will work. Being 29 in the rib cage was/is really had to shop for. Oh well I have 11days to find one.

I'm hoping to be a full B or small C...I told her to go as small as she can with the blood supply she has. She believes that she will take 1000 off each side, I'm hope so. I'm getting older and my back is already curved so I need as much weight off as possible.

7 days post op

So I'm just now reading my post after surgery, lol I guess I was still a little drugged. Pain level is a 5, I wanted to go as small as possible and I'm really sore on the sides. It took a minute, but I am happy with the outcome, my ps isn't the most talkative young lady but she did a great job. My only concern now is the numbness I have..oh well I will continue to take one day at a time. Will update photos soon.

You look great, and with your small frame, I am sure the smaller set (although they still look like a good size) will help with any neck/back pain you may have had. I just had my surgery on Tuesday....and am so damn itchy. Currently looking for a PO bra, any suggestions?

Thanks. I took Benadryl and if it got too bad I rubbed Bactrian on the spots that itch. I was definitely at the beginning of the healing a couple days after po, I just ordered and received my marena bra. It's compression fit and helps me to feel secure. I've tried danskin at Walmart but the support wasn't enough for the pups. Some say they like the fruit of aloom front closures but I couldn't find a size to work. Good luck and happy healing
Mrs.Soup the Marena bra is awesome .At 7 weeks postop I wear my Marena bra during the day and the fruit of the loom front closure at night . At the end of the day I like a little softer grand on my girls at night . I plan on wearing the Marena bra at least another month . Even though my PS said I could wear any bra I wanted . But he also said the longer I wear the surgical bra the better results I will have with shaping . It took me a long time to get my surgery . So I want to make sure I get the best results I can .

They are smaller just not as small as I wanted

Doing great I go back to work on Monday so I'm getting myself mentally ready. The pups are still swollen and the ps said it will probably be another 3 months or more. My incisions under the breast have hard bumps along the lines but I massage them as much as possible. Now on to full workout mode...totally released to do as I please. Yay! Thanks for all your well wishes and I hope everyone else is happy and healing...smooches!

This is my 2nd go around, my original choice turned out to not be as concerned about me and/or my money. After I was denied the 1st time for lack of information(from the DR). I have changed DR's and this one made me feel very comfortable from the time he shook my hand. He seemed to geniuely be concerned and advised that him and I will really get to know each other over the months after surgery because he does follows on a regular basis. I found him by viewing his website and calling in December the nurse was very helpful. She wanted me to wait until the new year because he had a few cases already dealing with the insurance companies and wanted to finalize them.
