Awaiting Surgery! 1/4/2012 - Richmond, CA

Hey everyone! So first off I am 20 years old and a Junior in college at CSUMB in the lovely monterey, ca. I have been having back pain, shoulder pain, shoulder grooves and emotional issues surrounding my breast size for a while now. I am about a 38 DDD but maybe more like an E since most of my bras dont always fit well. I have always felt like my breasts were way too big for my personality and hated how my identity started to be 'the girl with big boobs.' Clothes didnt fit right and the ones that did, I didnt like. Shopping for bras especially sucked.

Anywho, on a happier note, my surgery is less than a month away! I am so happy that I found this site. I have been searching on the web and on youtube like crazy to get different people's point of views.

SO: i hope that a lot of you guys can respond to my posts and we can all relate :D I was really wondering what I can start doing now to prepare for surgery and what I need for it??

I know that I want to get some button up shirts so does anyone have any advice or tips on what to look for in the shirts or where/what brand are good??

I'm also semi-worried about going home with the drains. My dr says that I will have them in for 3 to 5 days which really freaks me out! Any advice??

Ahhhhh! 15 days left! It is not coming fast enough...

Ahhhhh! 15 days left! It is not coming fast enough... I am soo overly excited. How can I possible pass the time ?

Ok so my surgery is in two days and I am excited but worried at the same time! I have had this cough for over a week now and I'm wondering if there is any possibility they will reschedule?? I have had to make so many arrangements and so has my family that it would be really really disappointed. I don't have a runny or stuffy nose, no fever, just a itchy cough. Has anyone had experiences with this or know if it's ok??

Hey everyone! Day 4 today!!! Everything went really well and I think I'm healing up nicely. The drains are gross though and I won't get them out until Monday so boo to that but other than that I'm up walking around today feeling pretty good :)
