After years of debating on whether to get implants or not, I excitedly decided to do it. I'm kinda big boned, 5'8", 160 lbs. and have worn a 42a forever. Went to preop yesterday (7/18/12), spent at least an hour trying on sizers (think the nurse got a little agitated) and finally decided to get 380cc hi profile saline implants. She measured each of my breasts width to be 13cm, so the 380 should be a good fit. I wonder tho with my wide chest if they will look to small, but I really want them to look as natural as possible.
The surgery is scheduled for 7/31/12. Started taking the preop vitamins today, they are huge. Now that everything is set to go, I'm getting scared to go thru with it, there are so many 'what ifs'. The odds of something going wrong is kinda high, and with my luck, it probably will, lol.
I've read a lot of the stories on here an the different experiences people have gone thru, I've learned a lot. I'm trying to stay strong with a positive outlook.
5 days to go, come on already, I hate waiting....

I slept in my recliner last night and actually slept quite well. Must have been really tired since I got very little sleep the past two nights. I still have very little pain, my side boobs are fairly sore but the rest of boobs are ok, still a little numb from the anesthesia I'm guessing. Breasts are still high of course, and there doesnt seem to be any swelling, but I'm loving them already and I know they are only going to get better, I am sooo glad I decided to do it, should have done it years ago. I've still been peeing a lot which is good, I know my kidneys are getting flushed good. Havent pooed much tho so I started wifh the milk of magnesia this morning, maybe it will start working this afternoon. I dont feel very bloated tho, so all is good. I made a little chart on my computer so I can keep track of taking meds on time and stuff so I dont forget any. I am a bit forgetful these days lol. PS didnt say anything about using any creams or lotions, but I've been using cocoa butter just on my areolas, they arent very big so I thought that maybe if I kept them moisturized they would stretch out a bit. If they do, great, but if they dont, oh well, its not that big a deal. OK, maybe thats a little to much info, but......... lol We did stay with the 380cc saline unders, and it seems like they are gonna be perfect size i was wanting. I didnt want to be real big so I think I made a good choice. Sorry if I'm just rattling on, but I'm so pleased as to how everything has gone so far. In a few days if breasts drop some, I'll post some new pics.

Its been a good day. No pain to speak of, course I took my meds as directed. I'm really surprised that I've had so little pain, I expected it to be much worse. If I'm feeling this good in the morning, think I'll lay off the valium and hydroco an see how that goes. I've just been lounging around all day, a little time on the computer, watched some tv, went out an filled the bird feeders an bird bath. Got tons of colorful little birds that come feed an get water. Especially when its real hot, they hit the bird bath a lot. I tried to measure my new boobs an maybe get some idea of what cup size they might be, but that didnt work to good cuz I know they are bigger than an A, lol

Slept on my recliner again last night and slept well. I feel great this morning. Side boobs are still a little sore to touch and skin feels tight, but other than that they are terrific. Not having any pain at all so I'm not going to take the hydroco pain pills and see how that goes. My nurse had said that the 5mg valium was for the muscle spasms (tightness), which they do feel a little tight this morning but they dont hurt so not gonna take the valium either. Just gonna stick with the vitamins and antibiotics, for now anyway. I'd rather not take the two narcotics any longer than necessary. I'm obviously not ready to run a marathon yet, but I really am feeling great. Occasionaly when moving my arm I hear that gurgling sound, its so funny lol. Its a beautiful morning outside an I really wanted to go out an sit in my hot tub an tan a little bit but PS says none of that for several weeks. :( Boobs havent seemed to have dropped any yet so no need in taking more pics yet, but will keep posting updates.

Its been an uneventful day, rather boring actually. Other than breasts just being sore, there's been no other pains. I've just lounged around today, not much to do, boring lol. Its just too darn hot to go outside an do anything in the yard, Weekend coming around so I wont be doing any shopping, I hate crowds lol. Maybe I'll hit the gun range early in the morning before it gets too hot an shoot a box or two of rounds. I have a beautiful S&W model 1911 45, polished nickel, love it. Have several other guns but the 1911 is my favorite and its heavy enough the recoil shouldnt jolt my chest much. It will prolly be months before I can shoot my AR15 tho, :-( I'll post a pic of my 1911

Was a restless night, couldnt get comfortable on recliner, so I moved to couch for a little while, that didnt work so I layed on my bed for bit, that didnt work either so back to the recliner. I'd get a little cat nap but would wake up and move , nap and move all night. I did keep having this really strange dream tho. It was like my breasts were making these 'things'. Kinda like a white mist or fog about as big around as a golfball and about 3 feet long and made them in sets of 3. There were all these unknown people lined up at my door wanting to buy these 'things'. Now is that strange or what? lol
My breasts are still sore to touch, mostly on the sides and feeling real tight. They dont really hurt so still not gonna take the narcotics. Other than a little tired I feel terrific, about ready to go dancing :) I'm sure my breasts hadnt changed much but gonna take some more pics anyway.

I'm feeling really great, breasts are still a little sore so still not making any sudden or strenuous moves. Stitches are getting a bit sore (underarm), will be glad to get those out tomorrow. Not much change in appearance, but that should start to change after tomorrow when he shows me how he wants me to massage them. Ready for them to at least drop a little an stop that 'in the arm pit feeling' still pretty firm an not very squishy. I have been sleeping flat in bed and sorta on my side, not having any problem with that, they aren't hurting when I get up in the mornings anyway. Still taking the vitamins, finished the antibiotics. I still feel very lucky that this whole experience has been so easy and near painless for me. I hope the same for all of you that are fixing to have yours done.

Went to the PS yesterday for a 1 week followup. He says all is looking good, stay on light duty, no heavy objects or straining and no bras and continue taking all the vitamins and pain and muscle relaxer as needed. He was very surprised wheen I told him I hadnt been taking the pain an muscle meds since 2nd day and none of the nausea pills, said I must be really tough. lol He shows me a simple massage he wants me to do. Put one hand on lower half of breast, other hand on upper half of breast then alternately squeeze the sides of breast firmly together, one hand then the other. Do several repetitions on each breast at least 5 times a day. I told them there wouldn't be any problem for me to squeeze my new boobies several times a day, They both laughed. His nurse takes the stitches out and says they look a little irritated so to use alcohol swabs an wipe them down 2 or 3 times a day till they stop hurting or redness goes away. Come back in 3 weeks for next checkup.
I had mentioned in a earlier post about sleeping flat in bed on my side, but what I didnt mention that I was using my snuggie pillow. The extra long pillow I can hug and put between my knees. It allows me to sleep on side without rolling over an sleeping on or squeezing my boob therefore no trauma to breast. Still having wild, crazy dreams.

Things are all good, except for some soreness, couldn't ask for better. Incisions under arms are still a little sore so I've been wiping them with alcohol swabs. Have been doing the massages like the PS showed me, but think I might have been a little to aggressive cuz they sure are sore now. Reckon I should be a little more gentle an work up to the firm squeeze like he wanted.I'm pretty sure they haven't dropped a darn bit yet :-( Wish they'd hurry up.

I've been going easy on the massage the PS showed me to do, but they are getting so sore I dont even want to touch them. They hurt mostly on the sides and on the bottom, not to mention my nipples are very sensitive and sore as well. Sure hope they get better soon. Is this normal? I realize it takes a long time, but geeeez.......

Its been 5 weeks and not a lot has changed. They are still high and tight and may have dropped a little but not much. They are still a little sore but not as bad as they were, except my nipples are still very tender and almost hurts to just look at them, lol. On my 4 week checkup, PS says I'm doing just fine and to keep up the massages except do them harder. I'm think 'huh', I'm squeezing them as hard as I can now. So, I reckon I'll just have to get rough with them. Maybe they'll deflate so I can get bigger ones. LOL posting a couple new pics
