Started out with breasts that were large for my framd but not overly so. Sailed through 20s and 30s with 34 C cups. My son died when I was 40 and that started me on a spiral of binge eating and shopping. I am now 55 and I have 38 G cup breasts that hang to my waist. Photos later. Had my first appointment on February 27th with PS. All documentation in. Insurance company has not received the info yet. Should I hound the doctors office to get the info to Healthkeepers? Does anyone else have Anthem Healthkeepers and did it take long to get approval. Also, I am so thankful for this group of women on this website. I check in here 10 times a day for all the support here.

Today I called Healthkeepers and they received my information today. Now I feel like I can start the countdown for approval. One more step taken towards my reduction. I am feeling hopeful today.

Woo Hoo!!! Just checked my messages and the PS office called to tell me I was approved !!! Ashley brought me good luck. Next step is a date for surgery.

PS office called this morning. Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday May 28th. I am so excited. I can hardly sit still at work today. At my office we are referring to my surgery as The Cruise. All the girls are excited for me and one is hoping to have it done after me.

7 week countdown. I am creating checklists for the things I need to do and buy. How many people think a recliner is a must? How about the wedge?

6 weeks to go. I am creating checklists and thinking of treating myself to a professional house cleaning service right before my surgery. Did anyone else do this? Going to schedule a mani pedi for one week post op. is that too soon? We can't wear nail polish for the procedure so I will need that mani pedi afterwards.

5 weeks to go before surgery. After reading everyone's reviews, I can't wait until May. 28th. I keep trying on tops that are too tight in the bust and wondering how they will look post op. I have dresses I have never fit into well at the top.

Found out today that my co-pay will be $300.00. I'm happy about that. I can afford that. I'm sure there will be other expenses but I know the surgery is covered by insurance. Woo Hoo!!

17 days and counting. Finally starting to get a little nervous. I have a lot of shopping and cleaning to do. I think I have read too much information. I don't know which way to turn. Info overload. I have made a million lists. Today I broke down and bought a dress that is too small in the chest but I will take it back tomorrow. I don't need to buy a any new clothes. I'm like a crazy person running around without direction.

Two weeks until D Day. I got the best pajamas at Walmart yesterday. They have buttons down the front, short sleeves and shorts that are long enough to be comfy. I'm taking them to the surgery center so I will already be in my pajamas when I get home from the hospital. I went looking for recliners but bought two club chairs for my family room. They are large and comfy with high backs so I will sleep in one of them with an ottoman for the first few days. They are also slipcovered so they can be washed. I couldn't pass them up. We need furniture because we bought a fixer upper last year and all of our money has gone for things like roofs and washing machines. I think they will work great. I have my preop appointment today at 2pm. Sooooo excited!!!!!

Heart Bypass surgery
28 May 2013
Day of treatment
Todaybis one week since I had open heart surgery. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. I hope to go home soon. My family has been so good to me. I'm glad to be here but keep thinking how I'm gonna make it with these gig knockers after looking so forward to it for so long.
On the mend!!
I am 9 weeks post op from my heart attack and bypass surgery. Working half days and going to rehab. Still want my breast reduction because shoulder pain is still no joke. Thank you all so much for your prayers and positive thoughts. Hope to be on the flat side with you one day.
Saw Plastic Surgeon Today

I was told by my cardiologist that I can have my breast reduction. Saw surgeon today and we discussed doing it at the hospital instead of the surgery center. He doesn't anticipate any problems but we will be at the hospital as a precaution. So, here I am again waiting for approval. Thank you all for your good wishes on my recovery from bypass surgery. I'm doing well.
