Almost 5 weeks post op
Today was a pretty big deal for me. I went to be fit. I went early in the day, as I still get swollen in the evenings. I was a 34H and today I wore 36DD. Although I've never worn a 36 band and it MAY be due to the swelling, I have to tell you how happy it made me to be able to buy a bra that didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I literally found a really nice (normally expensive) bra at Macy's and paid $12 for it including tax. Feeling motivated, I went to Victoria's Secret, since I've always been able to purchase panties, but never bras, as they never carried 34H. I had received a free rewards card for a free pair of panties anyway, so thought I would also try on a bra. I saw the cutest bralette for $10 that matched the free pair of underwear I had already chosen. So I ended up leaving VS with a complete set for $10.80! Although I am still wearing my $8 walmart fruit of the loom or genie bras for the first 3 months, my PS did tell me I could wear the occasional bra for a short time (my daughter's wedding for instance in a couple of weeks).
Just had to share. Felt so great to fit into a DD cup!
So far, so good. Dr. Vento is a nice doctor who speaks clearly about what to expect and the risks involved. Day 3 postop Dr. Vento pulled my drains out. I was happy to see the results. I felt like he listened to me. I told him "take no prisoners" in deciding how small to go. I didn't want to stay on the bigger side. I already feel relief in my neck and back. An added bonus I didn't count on was that I look thinner. Just grateful everything went and is going as planned. I go in Monday for my 10 days post op check up but so far my healing seems uneventful.
