Terrified - Saint Petersburg, FL

At 18 (doctor should have taken my hand and told...

At 18 (doctor should have taken my hand and told me to rethink this) I got 375cc from a small c to a large d. Now at 27 I regret it greatly. They feel heavy and bothersome, not to mention my left breast is becoming hard and painful along with becoming slightly different looking then my right.

I am in the process of looking into doctors to get them removed (1st consult on Friday March 16th), but I am terrified of them looking like empty tube socks hanging on my chest. I have looked at some many pictures on this website and pretty much all of them look better after the implants are removed...but it's always that one bad photo that sticks with you!

Well, I had my first consult on Friday, March 16th...

Well, I had my first consult on Friday, March 16th. It seems I have developed CC in my left breast which is causing the uncomfortable tightness and it appearing bigger then my right breast. The price I was quoted is $3,880.00 (yikes)!!!

Well, I have come to the decision of removing them...

Well, I have come to the decision of removing them. I feel a little better with that decision out of the way! Now I am torn between straight removal and a small lift or just straight removal. I wanted to combine them because its less expensive and I know if sometime down the road I needed a lift I wouldnt be able to afford it!!!! I am so sick of thinking about boobs, I cant wait for it all to be done with!

So, as it creeps closer to surgery time at the end...

So, as it creeps closer to surgery time at the end of October I am becoming more scared. My husband keeps making little comments here and there about it or just flat refuses to talk about it sometimes, which has me so nervous he won't love me anymore or want me if my breasts aren't these fake bags!! I love the days when I feel positive about my choice and then I have days where I start second guessing myself. It's all so confusing, I wish they were out already!

Still awaiting my funds to have these silly things...

Still awaiting my funds to have these silly things taken out. It is just annoying really, but I guess it will make me appreciate having them out even more when the time finally comes! I have good days and bad days, sometimes I think how great it will be to have smaller breasts, then there are days where I am terrified I will look deformed. But my guess is everyone is having those same thoughts.

Well I just happened to stumble upon my Mentor...

Well I just happened to stumble upon my Mentor implant card and looked up my implants online.....turns out there are siltex moderate profile 275 cc overfilled to 300cc. Which is funny cause I remember telling my doctor I wanted high profile overfilled to 375cc. But I guess the smaller implants work in my favor when I finally get them out!
