I have always hated my nose. In fact, I remember the exact moment when I was 14 years old that I noticed I had a large nose. Ever since then I have assumed I would fix it at some point. As for my breasts, I am a 32A (if that). All the woman in my family have a larger chest, except for me. I figured out that a perscription that I took from age 7-17 is the reason for my poor breast development. Now, the drug is not even perscribed to girls under the age of 18. I am married and have two children under the age of 2, work and am in nursing school. My school only offers two breaks a year, so 3-8 is the only time I can have the surgery with 10 days to recover. Even though I have always fantasized about having these procedures done, I do not think I ever actually thought they would happen. I also never anticipated being this nervous and scared! I trust my doctors abilities 100%, and am hoping that my pre-op today at 5:30 will help ease my fears. I think my two main concerns right now are the IV sedation, and the pain meds after. Hydrocodone has caused me urinary retention before, so I hoping there is something else I can be given that will be effective. I did not take any pain meds after my last c section for this exact reason. :( Next is the IV sedation. I have had a "twilight" procedure before, and had no problem with it. The surgery on my forehead, and I remember maybe two minutes of it but no pain. I am so afraid of the IV sedation for procedure though. Not so much for the breast aug, but for the rhino. I am having a basic, open rhino. He is smoothing my dorsal hump, making the tip smaller, and shortening my nostrils to make everything even. I have done a lot of reading I guess my main concern is not having my airway maintained during the surgery. I read with a rhino, blood will pool at the back of the throat which can cause problems. Going under general is quite a bit more, and with me upgrading to silicone implants I do not think we can afford both. I would love to hear some positive stories from other people. :)
