Well I have been considering this for a long time.. but just recently decided to go ahead with it! And I am very excited to finally get rid of what exercise can't! I am 43 years old, a mother of 3. My oldest 23 and youngest 5. I feel like, with some guilt (as us mommas do) that this is my time. Am so ready!! Boy this day can't come soon enough for me! I also am pretty nervous too. Praying and hoping for a quick/smooth recovery! My pre op was on the 5th. I talked to the Anesthsiologist, OR Nurse and of course my PS. Everyone was so warm and caring. Very nice. Completely answered my questions and concerns. :) My husband came with me. Which was nice since he will be my immediate care giver over the next 2 days Post OP. So all of his concerns were answered too. Fun part was he was very happy to help me chose my breast size(of course) Now I am a 36 saggy C. We together decided on 400's and saline. DD Ahhhh my goodness! Am thrilled and this just sometimes seems like a dream.. HA! And when I awake I will be perky and with a flat tummy! I think I am most nervous about my tt! I do have a high tolerance to pain so am hoping I won't have to take my pain meds for too long! Right now I am 155lbs at 5ft 3'. I am hoping to lose a good 5lbs or more before surgery. Wish me luck! II am so glad to have stumbled across this site. So much info and so great to have support from others who have or are going to be doing the same or some sort of procedure. I will post pics sooner to my big day! :) Also since I paid with cash.. I received a little % off! Nice!!
Today is day 7 post op! Feeling pretty good today!...

Had a consultation with 2 other PS's one in Bellvue and one in Seattle. I decided to look for a hometown PS and Dr. Kierney is like literally 5 min from my house. He had great reviews and I liked how I actually talked with Nurses and the Dr at my consult. He was very kind and answered all of my questions and explained ever little detail in a gentle snd caring manor. The nurses are all so very sweet and wonderful. Not once have I ever felt rushed or like a inconvenience. (as you do at some Dr offices) Tomorrow will be one week since my surgery and I have talked with the nurse once and the Dr 3x's. He was so kind and genuinely concerned with my issues I had going on at that moment. And this was over his weekend. Such a wonderful staff! :) The other 2 PS office I only got to meet with a personal consultationist (receptionist). Wasn't very personable, esp when this was such an important and very personable decision. So happy I chose Dr. Kierney!
