I am a 34A, and so is my 12 year old daughter. I am 33 years old, about 5'3 at 115. I have never had a problem with my breast, but after i accidently put on my daughters bra i figured it was time, and besides it will be a gret birthday present to myself as my bday just passed. I was advised to go 500 cc's per doctors request, the nurse who has them and close to my size suggested 450 cc's as i did but i think when i go in on friday i will change that to 400.

So today I went to pick up my Meds. I know there...

so today I went to pick up my Meds. I know there will be pain but I didn't think I'd get this much! I guess we shall see just how much I actually need! Im still reviewing other reviews pics just in case I can't go forward with the recommended 450cc

So thanks to the feed back from the girls on the site, and looking at some results from some of the girls closely to my size. i have gone on to chose 425. lol Since i am torn between 400-450. I have one more day to make up my mind and then the big day is friday morning. I am still not nervous about anything. My daughter (12) asked me to document everything so she can see lol. i guess shes heard me talk about it so much. But i think the anxiety will kick in thursday. I will be posting my size as of today on the site by thursday. i want the new members to see the size before and after, that really helps in deciding your perfect size.

So last night i did more cleaning, laundry, changed my bedding, washed my hair, cleaned out my closet (why i dont know), took some before pics of what will be the old rack (if you'd call it that) that i will submit by tomorrow and started packing my overnight bag. I really can't tell if i am nervous or not, i dont feel nervous i think i am a little anxious.

I'm ready to get this ball rolling. This site and the responses i received really help me on the decision on size. I guess i will update again tomorrow. I'm at work right now and needed a break and decided to give an update.

Can't wait for the day to be over. We have rain all week. That works for me. i hope the sun doesn't come out until i'm healed.

This is the morning before i have 24 hours to go...

This is the morning before i have 24 hours to go until surgery time. I am about 75% prepared. I am not as excited as i thought i would be at this point. I came into work early just so i can leave early. Not sure how productive i will be for them today. I think the excitment will kick in once i'm free from work.

And i have to go shopping for something to wear tomorrow sad, i dont have any loose fitting clothes. I have some button ups (fit snug) wont work post surgery. I have some sweat suits (fit snug) wont work post surgery. Since old navy is down the street from work i will take lunch and buy something comfy to wear tomorrow and for the weekend from there. They said wear slip in its storming down here in the bay not sure about in rocklin, but my uggs wont work? ill have my sister put them on and take them off. lol.

So i have been prescribed meds and was told to start taking the antibiotic tonight, and an anxiety pill i guess to calm my nerves but i really dont feel like i need that. But i will follow the docs orders

I have exactly 40 minutes of work left. i am so ready to go. I have been pretty productive but i think that is over with for now and i want to head out. Tomorrow is so close and i still have some last minute things to do. Ah how slow the time goes when you have plans.

I found the cutest bcbg sweatsuit to wear tomorrow I had no nice comfy clothes. Got a deal 45 out the door from ross yea....I just took the anxiety pill as instructed dont really feel a difference a little tired, but I think I was sleepy anyway. Well good night ladies.

Going to try this again, The bandage pink pic is me a few hours after i was released from surgery. My memory after being released was not very clear due to the meds. I do remember it being very painful. I didn't realize how much we use our upper body to do just about everything. It was hard to sit up,lay down, turn from left to right and even lift anything to drink. My surgery was over at noon and i was pretty much out of it for the rest of the day. I did wake up that night to take the pic for you guys (pink bandage) just for the site and i was groggy and barely making it. I stayed in a hotel that night due to having to see the doc in the a.m. and i was comfy. As long as you take the meds and rest the first night i think you would be okay.

Saturday (day after) i slept off and on from 3-7 a.m. i had my sister and bff there with me so i used up all the assistance i could knowing it will end soon lol. I felt a lot better than the day before and i was able to get up and down on my own. The pain today was more like a shooting pain, my breast were very swollen, felt tight and warm to touch. I wanted to loosen the bandage so much because it hurt after having it on for almost 24 hours. The pics in the white strapless shirt, and bare breast are the very next day post op apt. The doctor said everything looked great, i went with 420 ccs, i had no bleeding just very sore. At times i wanted to cry but didn't want them to see me sweat lol.

After the doctor removed the bandage i was able to go shopping for sports bras, my pace was slow i was in pain but it was bareable. I was still ready to get home and get in my own bed. The day wasn't that bad i just wish they didnt feel so tight but had to realize it was only 24 hours after the actual surgery.

Sunday - (yesterday) i was a lot better, i was able to take a long shower. I still had the incision (areola) covered and i can't feel that at all. i think i am happy with that decision. Overall the process minus swelling and tenderness was a breeze. Today i feel much better, i was able to play around and try on some new shirts i bought last week.They look good, i was told that i will probably be mid c, possible d, but i actually like the size now. I posted a pic of me in the sports bra (day 2) post procedure. They are still swollen and i keep ice on them at all times. I think i am going to take one more day off from work and return on wednesday. All i do is sit at a computer so it shouldn't be bad for me. I'm ready to show them off. Sorry i am so late with real time posts i had some problems with my computer. The pick in the white sports bra is me 2 days later.

I am going to post a pick in a few days to show an update after a week time, hopefully the swelling goes down. And from then i will do month post up until month 6. I'm sorry i wasn't able to express myself as things were happening had issues with updating so if you have any questions or concerns that you think i can help with let me know.

I'm back to work its wednesday 5 days after the...

I'm back to work its wednesday 5 days after the surgery. I feel fine today. I will let you know how things go once the day is over. I think i'm healing pretty quickly. I am not sore just a bit swollen now, i dont have the sharp pains anymore, but can feel when i pull something. I'm overall okay.

5th day and first day back to work! if you can id...

5th day and first day back to work! if you can id say take a full week the day for the most part was okay. by the last two hors of work my chest started to feel tight i figured it was the end of the day and took a muscle relaxer that helped until i was able to get home. i wish i was able to set aside a full week of recoop time but i think ill be okay i have two days left until the weekend.

2nd day at work, today i feel much better than...

2nd day at work, today i feel much better than yesterday and using my arms a lot more, yesterday my chest felt really tight today it feels weird, not hurting but sort of like the muscles, blood, implants are doing there own thing in there. I can't explain sort of feels like a massager is in my chest and moving around. I'm assuming its progressing and taking its shape or form. I go in tomorrow to have the steril strips removed so ill ask those questions at that time. It actually feels good lol. I hope that is what is going on and nothing serious. My process has been a good one. Even my sleep last night was great, i can sleep on either side and it doesnt bother me, when i lay flat they tend to tighten up. Getting up from lying use to be an issue now i dont have any pains when i get up or lye down. Sudden movement i get what feels like a stretch feeling in the inside but its not burning pain.

I haven't given an update in a while but i guess...

I haven't given an update in a while but i guess its because i really dont have much to complain about, everythin is super well, i really stopped having pains 5 days after surgery, i was back to work on the 5th day and only rested the weekend after surgery because it was storming out. I plan on going out for the first time on saturday i will be sure to explain the feelings i get if any. Other than that I am fine and the process was a breeze. I hope this isn't a begining to years of PS. I must say i have been caught twice by my daughter bursting in my bedroom and i'm trying on tops and dresses to see how i look now. Really embarassing, but i was like oh well.

So i missed my apt on friday to take the sterile...

So i missed my apt on friday to take the sterile strips off and check up, and i went in yesterday. I had the incision at the areola (no pain after AT ALL) and look the new pic shows i have no visible scar. The red underneath is some brusing that reappered after massaging. The doctor said that the majority if not all of the swelling is gone and i have progressed very well. He says that one appears a little higher than the other and to keep massaging it. And of course i asked the big question about the size changing during the settlement process and he says i am good as is/so i take it i can go bra shopping this weekend yes. I will be sure to let you know what size the 400's results in. Lucky me my family chipped in and got me a victoria secret gift card i can't wait to use it.

It has been 3 months since the surgery and i feel like i have had these things for life. I have no had any problems. The only thing i noticed is that one breast is alot softer than the other. I am working on massaging hopefully it isn't too late. you can't notice it i just touch them alot and have noticed a diffrence.
