Hello all my name is Letitia I am 44 years young,...

Hello all my name is Letitia I am 44 years young, my bra size is (40 i), I am having my reduction on April 23,2012. My mind is racing with all of these negative thought. My husband is trying to fix it but he can't. But he is trying.. Dr. Frost and his staff has been very nice and helpful..... I think that the longest part of this process is waiting on the day of surgery, it gives you too much time to have crazy thoughts of all of the cons, never the pros. IS THIS NORMAL???????

10 days and counting. Goodbye 40i, Hello 40D.....

Hello ladies, 9 days and counting until surgery. I have not been able to sleep at all, I have read every testimony and comment on this site, and I am still worried.. Getting ready to do a little house work to keep my mind busy.

On January 30 I had my first consultation with my PS, I must say it was a fun meeting. We talked about all of the pros & cons about surgery. He asked when I go out to dinner do I put my boobs on the table for a little relief on my back and shoulders?? I answered yes and laughed very loud. Then I asked him if he saw me doing that at T.G.I. Fridays the night before my consultation.. (LMAO) I am sorry to say that I did not have a lot of insurance issues. Blue Cross blue Shield was very understanding with my PS and his staff, It took my insurance company only a week to send back APPROVED!!!!!!!!!! The only problem I had was that my allergies are very very bad so I could not have my surgery at the AMBULATORY CENTER because I am allergic to latex, so my surgery was put off a week. Blue Cross needed to change the surgery to the Hospital and not the day surgery place.. That took all of 24 hours.

Good morning Ladies, I had to be admitted into the hospital because my allergies went crazy durning and after surgery. (HIVES) everywhere!! It is about 2:00am right now and I can't sleep, some pain but not a lot, Meds are working great. NO MORE I's. But can you say D's. Overall surgery went great.

Morning Ladies , My new girls are 3 days old, and looking good.

I am also a smoker, or was a smoker I have not had a cig in 2 weeks and counting it is very hard. I think that is part of why I am so blue.. I tore something on the right side. In 10 days I have seen my PS 4 times, he took out my left drain 2days after surgery on the 4th day he took out the right drain. I did not get one of those fancy bras that everyone got, but it does feel good not to wear a bra. On Friday I get to see my PS again to see how my infection is coming along. THANKS ALL!!!!!

Hive and more hives, I have been breaking out in hives all over my new small breast for weeks now. When I had large breast I guess I could not feel the hives because my breast were so big, now that they are small I really feel these hives itching really bad. After my reduction I realized that I have a belly that was under my large breast!!! I am so upset!!! Most of my friends have small breast and big bellies, they would always say that they wish they could have a flat stomach like mine, now that I know that my stomach is not flat, I got depressed and I have been in bed for 4 days...

Hey Letitiah! I'm so glad you are doing well. You are frequently on my mind and I appreciate you checking in with us. Sounds like you are doing great. The whole tummy thing is so much easier to work on without the extra load on your back, neck, and shoulders. Plus you feel so good about your amazing looking breasts that you are more motivated to get the rest of you in shape. You will do great...and the Wii is great! Amazing that a toy can make you sweat!!

Hello GymnastGirl86, thanks I am still a little blue about that stomach thing but I have been talking to a few of the ladies on here and they tell me in due time it will go down with a little work. Happy Healing to you too!!

Hello mshill, we are not trying to scare you, I do not miss those 40i's at all, can you say no more back pain, no more grooves or pit on my shoulder and no more buying 80 dollar bras.

You're right. I'll be working hard toward a flat tummy now instead of spending all my time at the gym working on chest and back machines to help hold up those humongous tatas.
  • Reply
My thoughts exactly, GG! Though I'm looking forward to push-ups again. Somehow the flabby triceps don't match the gorgeous Tatas.

Hi there, you're looking great! And congratulations on the no smoking, I know first hand how hard that can be. This month on the 20th I'll be 6 years smoke free but it wasn't easy.

A website you might like is quitnet.com They have a lot of cool info & you put in your quit date & how much you smoked,price per pack, etc & you'll get updates telling you how much money you saved, home long its been since you smoked & how many days you've added to your life, I'm up to 11 months, 9 days, 1 hour. :)

Best of luck!

That site sounds really cool. I'm going to check it out! Maybe I can justify that new purse I've had my eye on :-)

Hi Letitiah. I'm glad you updated. I had been thinking of you. How are you feeling today? Are you still smoke free? I hope you are feeling better. Just remember that in another month or two you will be back to your regular activity level and you can start working on that stomach. I seem to be a bit obsessed with my middle as well, and I think it is just because we can see it more now. And since you stopped smoking you have more time to focus on other things. Just remember that your top priorities right now are making sure you are recovering from surgery as well as you can, and that you have completely kicked the smoking habit. If you feel strong enough and recovered enough you could start doing some yoga. You would be amazed at how good that makes you feel physically and mentally. Your middle would start to firm up, you wouldn't think about the smoking, and you would just feel more relaxed in general. We are all here to cheer you on!

Hello Iowa71, yes I am still (SMOKE FREE) But now I am eating everything in the house I am on steroids for my hives, I am waiting to play my new game on wii. I am feeling better about myself, I have so much support on here that's why I try to keep updating on here I love this support team!!!

UGH...double whammy...quitting smoking and prednisone both will cause you to eat. Just try to make healthy food choices. But I always say, "We can work on the weight, do whatever it takes to keep the cigs out of your hand!" Once you get your fanny on that Wii and also able to get out and about more, the weight will start to come off. Heck, if you can keep yourself from smoking, you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to! Good luck!

Letitiah, I'm just a few days out of surgery and it is great to read your story, thank you for sharing. I think you are beautiful! I'm sorry you're feeling bad about your body. I notice that I'm having lots of feelings about the size of my lower half. I wonder if we just get so used to having our top halves be so big, that when they get proportional to our bottoms, we just feel all unbalanced - I certainly am having those feelings!! Yesterday, I was feeling really blue and then I remembered how heartbroken I was when my breasts first grew (I developed late, in high school). I just felt like a total freak. It took me many years to come to love my breasts and feel they were sexy and beautiful. Once I remembered that, I felt better about having these feelings now. Of course it will take me a while to get used to these new breasts! Of course my body seems out of proportion. Add to that the fact that I just look kind of pale and exhausted from the surgery and it's a recipe for feeling bad about myself. So I'm cutting myself lots of slack and deciding not to worry about feeling blue and just using this community to feel better. Hope it's helping you, too.

Hello Se1f 1ove, I hope that you are feeling well today, thanks a bunch and you are right I will start giving myself some slack.. Thanks

Hi Letitiah! Once you are able to exercise again you can do pilates and core work, but most people I know who've had the surgery say that they've lost weight and their stomachs get smaller. About the hives, have you been using anything on the scars? I know a lot of women who break out from Mederma or other scar reduction products. Hope things clear up for you!

Thanks Serenepeace17, I just picked up zumba for my wii I can't wait to use it. My hive are still bad but I am on steroids right now for it.
