My story to getting my body back...... :)

Well I'll start off by saying that I come from a large family lots of sisters and brothers. I am 39 years young...lol my 40 bday is september 26:) I have 3 children two of them are adults and one just turned 11 she's my little sweet heart. And I am married to a great man who says there's no need for me to have this BR surgery he loves all of me the way that I am. I work in the health care field very loving and kind and full of life. And that's why I'm taking steps to get my body back on track. I hurt my back at work many years ago and that's when my body just starting giving me a hard time. So last year July 2012 I had a full Tt butt injects lipo of the back and sides. And in 2013 feb. I had more lipo done just trying to get my sexy on...lol To make a long story short find out a couple of months ago that I have disc bulges from the c2 levels down to c7 I have a lot of shooting nerves muscle spams my neck and back is a HOT mess... I've tried the chiropractor I've tried physical therapy and injects into the back And NOTHING HELPS at my doctors request we try a reduction and go from there.. Well I hope the reduction gives me some relief because I DON'T want neck and back surgery.. Soooooo BR surgery here I come...

Pre-op update

Ok I went too my appointment this morning and I found out that my insurance require the removal of 550g. Ok here's the problem my ps say if he take the 550 I will be a small b is a small b really that bad? The way I feel I would be happy just to have them back up where they belong...LOl my doc think that I may not be happy because they will be small but HEY only time will tell.. Anyways I will be having the surgery at the hospital and staying over night. And I will have drains they will be removed the day I go home. And I asked about the caterer he was not sure about it they would let me know the day of surgery. He was so pleased at how prepared I was for my appointment HEY I got a gooooood looking doc... Lol the surgical bra's I took with me he said was great and would work just fine.And my insurance will be covering the surgical bra that i will be coming home in. And yes my pictures I took with me again he was pleased and now he knows the shape and everything I want. Just hope I'm not to SMALL.. With the big hanging no shape breast that gives me so much pain I'm looking forward to smaller tits.... :) :)

Here is for your Ta-Ta's, have fun with your surgery sisters! http://www.realself.com/forum/august-2013-breast-reductions-check-in
I know most insurance up front have a requirement of removal, are they saying 550 for each? I was curious, in case I missed it - what size are you now? You'd be suprised though how nice they can be with a lift & volume no matter what size - especially if the pain is driving you crazy. Not that I advocate fibbing but how does the Insurance know exactly what the dr took out? I had my 3 letters to turn in & especially one from my Chiropractor, thank goodness I started going for my tennis elbow, didn't realize how much that would help my case. Though I am pleased 1 wk out from my Operation, my dr did suggest if I was unhappy I could always consider implants (he's not the sales kind even). So that's something to think of - and who knows with weight loss/gain and even pec muscle building you might be super happy with a B. I mean what we had before wasn't EXACTLY Average or normal or we wouldn't be doing this. I wish you a smooth journey.

What's a girl too do :)

Well with the news about my insurance company and all I've been trying to figure out what to do about my surgery. Should I have the surgery and take the chance of having small tits or should I just say forget it and save up the money and just pay for the surgery myself. So much to think bout well I guess I could always buy them bras that makes you look bigger.Lol. The thing about my breast is they are really not that big they hang and pull on my neck shoulders and back pain pain pain.... The last couple of days I've been tossing and turning with all this on my mind. Ok after talking with my ps he tells me that he will do what he can and everything will be ok so with that said I will trust my doc and trust in god that it will go good..

Two more weeks :)

Time is moving so FAST now just TWO MORE WEEKS... I'm still tossing and turning about if I'm really going to do it.. Been feeling nervous and scared is all the pain really worth it..

I know what you mean! I'm not all too big (in my opinion), I'm a 32 G and wouldn't mind having smaller boobs so I can actually buy a bra from a normal store, but my main reason for this reduction is to not have them droopy. I want them smaller and perkier! ..but don't know how comfortable I will be if they take me down too small. I'm sure even if they are a bit smaller than you may have originally wanted or would have gotten if you were paying for it, you will still be in love with them.. They will be uplifted and so beautiful and perky, you are going to be so happy!

Thank you so much. I have researched Dr. Hardaway. There seem to be a lot of really good doctors out there. It's difficult to choose. It seems there are a few ladies that get their surgery postponed at the last minute, that's frustrating but I hope I would look at it like you do.....a little longer to get into better shape!

So many questions is it worth it, am I making the right decision, will everything go ok, how will the recovery be, how long is the recovery, how will my breast look afterwards, questions questions questions lol. I'm starting to get scared I'm starting to get nervous I've been through surgery before you would think that it wouldn't worry me so much.. I guess last minute cold feet.

You can do this.....the only surprise I had was the amount of time it took the general anesthesia to wear off. Anyway, I only needed over the counter Tylenol Extra strength 2 times a day. I had no trouble with arm movement either.

I'm On The Smaller Side...

My surgery was Thursday and as soon as a walked in the hospital door they stared getting me ready meet with the nurse meet with anesthesia meet with my doc and got my road map done.lol everybody was so nice and took the time to answer me and my family questions. And before I knew it I was giving my hubby a kiss and down to surgery I go. I can remember being put on the or table and my arms being strapped down and that's it.. I wake up in recovery NO pain just feeling VERY sick from anesthesia for me they was the worst part. And the nurse asked if I wanted to go home or stay I said stay and down to my room I go. The nurses and staff are GREAT. I sleep off and on all night me and room mate looked at the wizard of oz and that help lift my mood.. I went home Friday the 11 and I am doing just fine. Go back to see my doc on Monday.. Yea by the way I got a quick peek at my breast and they are looking GREATi will post pic Monday...

THINGS ARE GOING GOOD!!!!

Went to the doc today for my second check up and everything is healing just fine. The only thing that I'm worried about is under my left breast at the incision site the skin flap is taking its time to heal and come together with the rest of my breast.. My doc say don't worry and it will get better and if it don't come together the way I want he will fix it. The only bad thing about that is I will have to wait 6 months :( that's ok I've came this far but hopefully it will come together,, I go back to the doc in 2 months. O yea I've been having a milky looking fluid come out my right breast doc says its normal and it's nothing to worry about.. So for now IM GOOD :)

Ok it will be two months tomorrow and I must say the surgery and recovery was not all that bad I got myself soooooo worked up about it all and I can truly say if I had to do it over again I WOULD. I've been having so much FUN playing dress up and my hubby REALLY LOVE my little BAD GIRL outfits..lol it has been such a Blast and I will tell everyone and anyone if you want a reduction GO FOR IT. Do something good for yourself and if your married your husband as well. No problems to report everything is going fine I'm not really sure what size I am but I'm going to find out I'm thinking that I am somewhere between 38b-42-c I'm just soooo happy to have nice shaped breast again everything is back up like its suppose to be, and I must say the GIRLS are looking HOT...
