15 Days Post-Op

I became very large breasted as a teenager and wanted a BR. Eventually, I decided not to pursue it in case I wanted to breast feed and for other reasons. I ended up not having children, and also gained a lot of weight. After a number of important life cycle efforts, I made peace with my issues and decided to get healthy, fit and lose weight.

About 18 months ago, I had a BR consultation. I had only lost 35 lbs by then and knew I needed to lose more before proceeding. Now, I lost 72 lbs and have the BR scheduled. It's odd. For years my large breasts were a big problem for me. Then, I made peace with them. I think it was all part of my bigger life issues. So now, I like my body more than I ever have. I think I look good, and have gone back and forth on the BR several times. I can't imagine it. You know, the idea that I can sleep on my stomach (long after the surgery of course), reduce back, shoulder and neck pain (I hope) and have people actually talk to my face instead of my boobs. (Although I do use the boobs against them. I mean it only seem fair.) Anyway, I still have time for my pre-surgery panic . . . so there's that to look forward to. LOL. This group has been a great find, and I thank you all.

So, I'm trying to lose another 15 lbs before the surgery and get caught up on work. I see my PS this week for my pre-op. Yes, its early, but he will be out of town for a while. Well that's all for today.

Pre-op Appt
I had my preop this week. I am very happy with my PS. He is supplying so many of the extras you have written about including arnica. We went over everything again soup to nuts and I'm pretty excited.

It felt as if this was so far in the future, but soon it will be only four weeks away. I scheduled my Pre-op tests at the hospital and I'm really getting revved up about this. Omg. I am super excited, thenp omg scared, then omg what if I'm too small, what if I'm too big. I have too many things on my to do list. Yikes. But then I'm super excited again. I guess this explains why I am so tired all the time. Lol.

Is it too late to add a tummy tuck? Getting excited!

Still have pain/discomfort. No sensation in right nipple. :-( Not sure if this is a permanent thing or will come back. I see the PS again Tuesday. Any thoughts from our community?
