Hi all,
We'll I made my schedule tt, 1/13/14, waited a long time for this. I had Brest reduction in 1983, when I was 26. It changed my life, and gave me so much confidence, I would encourage anyone to do it, it's really worth it, Best decision I made! It is wonderful to see all your comments, stories, and advise! I enjoy all of you. Looking forward to being a part of the "flat side"
Thank u in good luck

Pre op

So, pre-op called this morning, I go 1/8 already had blood work in November so I'm good there. Got most of my supplies rented a recliner with lift, it reclines all the way down for sleeping.
I sat in it and it feels really comfortable. Had dream that I had tt, when I looked down it looked the same, I said what no drains lol!, must be on my mind all the time.
Hurry up January 20.
Stevie, congrats on your upcoming TT... Wishing you all the best!!

Thanks Chica! Good to know all my tt sisters are here with me! :)

Stevie, I am so happy for you, you are going to be so pleased when it is all said and done. Very smart move with that lift chair, you will be really happy to have that. Lol, if your tummy's the same after surgery you make sure to let us know ok? Not! It'll be fine and you'll be incredibly happy and amazed at your new shape. You've got support here my friend, your very own cheerleaders :)

Good luck. Drink lots of water right up until the night before. I truly believe it helped me. Also, I ate very light the day before. My last meal was shrimp cocktail. I honestly had no nausea.

We put in a pool, I love floating in the pool in my bikini! Life is good! Hope you all are well.
Hello, Stevie1girl, I hope all is well with you! I just wanted to quickly check in to let you know that my consultation with Dr. Wojcik is coming up, and I am excited. I want to find out how you are healing. I have read other ladies' posts about numbness on and near their incisions. Any information about this or post surgery interactions that you have had with the doctor would be helpful. I look forward to hearing form you. Thanks!

I just came across your profile & your before & afters are amazing!! I go for my pre-op on Monday 9/22 & I am scheduled for BR (which got approved by my insurance) & a TT with MR & lipo of flanks on 10/7. I hope my results are as good as yours since my belly is similar to your before pics. If you dont mind may I ask what your before surgery height & weight was? Thanks in advance!! :)

Thank you! How are you doing? Have you posted any pics? Before my weight was 180 I'm 5'4. Now 155
