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???????

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.

All smiles here today, my son came home to help his dad take care of me after surgery. Just can't stop the happy tears I have not seen him in a year. Sniff Sniff!! 5 more days..

Yay! Seeing your son has got to make you feel good! Enjoy your time with him!

Hi Letitia! Thanks for posting your review! Sometimes it takes a few days for a new review to pop up on our radars...but I'm glad yours got to me!

Try to stay positive about this. I feel so much better since I had my surgery. It is completely normal to have anxieties and worry but just trust in your doctor and the hospital staff. They know what they are doing.

I laughed when you talked about resting your boobs on the table! That is one thing I forgot about...I use to do that all of the time! But not any more. And guess what...I was eating a sandwich in the car a while back and a piece of lettuce fell out of it and do you know where it landed? Nope...not on my chest! It fell all the way to my pants! I've never had a stain on my pants before that...however I've had lots of stained shirts! I've never been so excited for a stain!

We are here for you Letitia! You will make it. April 23 is just around the corner!

Laughing out loud right now I think that seeing my son was over rated, because I have been in the kitchen most of the day. This young man is trying get all of the food of mine that he has not had in a year or so. I have baked cake, brownies, mac & cheese, blueberry muffin,and fried shrimp... I wonder what is in store for me on Friday!! LMAO!!!

Hi Letitiah, I had my BR done April 2nd and was the best thing I have ever done. I was scared and could not sleep for days before, but day of surgery was a breeze as my doctor was terrific. I am now 3 weeks post op and just have 2 stitches left to come out which will be on Wednesday and am healing quite nicely, just itchy skin right now but I am using Bio Oil which is working great. Best of luck!

Hi Letitiah, I have been thinking of you and remembered that your surgery was coming up soon. Isn't Dr. frost a hoot,lol. I'm praying for you and your upcoming surgery. You're in the best of hands and will feel so much better when it's all said and done. God bless.

Congrats Letita!!!! Sounds like a great meal prepared for your son. I had my reduction on 3/2/12 and what a difference. I had 900 grams off each side. I can tell you that following my Doctor's orders was the best medicine for my healing process. My scars are healing tremendously. After 3 weeks, I was able to use Vitamin E oil, this is a great product to have, as you will have alot of dry skin when the healing begins. Best of luck to you.

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.

I really don't know about the clots in the drains, though I would say it is better to have them going in the drains than staying in your body. You may want to call your PS just to make sure though. Hope you are getting plenty of rest and letting your men take care of you!

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

I will try to put up pics later today...

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!!!!!

So thankful everything is going well for you! Hopefully that eases your mind some.

This really can be emotionally draining. Give your body time and rest and you will be back to your regular routine before you know it!

Hi Letitiah! Just had to tell you what a GORGEOUS job your PS did! You must be thrilled!! I cannot imagine what a relief it must be...and I can't WAIT to find out for myself. Also, congratulations on the smoking. I know exactly how hard that is and I hope and pray you're able to keep it up (I'm SURE you will be! You've already come so far.) Congratulations on 2 huge accomplishments! :)

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...

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!

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!!
