Just went thru surgery a week ago, and I am a little worried. I'm not sure of my size beforehand, maybe 38 DD. My insurance company was requiring my doctor to take off 850 grams per side, so her original estimate was that I would end up a large B. Now, looking at myself I do not think I am any smaller than a D. This is upsetting to me because I still feel I am too big - ideally I would like to be a mid-size C. Also my breasts still feel very heavy.
I'm sure once the swelling goes down I will be smaller, but will I still be big? Is the heavy feeling normal? When I tried weighing my breasts before the surgery, they were each about 5 pounds, if the scale could be believed. Did my doc not remove enough??
I spent so much time before surgery worrying I would be too small that I did not even consider I might be too BIG. And I would rather be a B than a D! What am I to do if I'm still left with large, heavy breasts? Continue wearing expensive bras that leave shoulder grooves? Get surgery AGAIN? Help!

Sometimes she seems moody and unwilling to answer questions and concerns.
