Amazing Work!! - San Diego, CA

I had to get home and get back in bed. But when I...

I had to get home and get back in bed. But when I started the day I went in around 615 in the morning my appointment was at 815 so I sat in the office for a good two hours waiting for the doctor. Once they took me back to get my IV and my dressing gown on I was extremely nervous crying having panic attacks told my husband I didn't want to do it. He said I was fine and I would do great. The nurse came in and wrote silicone across My stomach and then she left and the anesthesiologist came in and talk to me for a minute then Dr. Pousti came in and marked me out to figure out where he wanted to go. Once all that was done they'd walled me back to the OR which was actually rather comforting area my nurse wrapped her arms around me the whole way back so she was really really nice. They had me put my butt on the table and then my head and I don't remember much past that up until I woke up dizzy. Coming out of the anesthesia was actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be it was dizziness and then I was totally fine. So all in all I've been pretty okay I didn't take the pain medicine at the doctors office wish I had because I really should've taken them. By the time I got home I wanted to die. I've had 2 Percocets and 2 Valium today. I'm doing okay. I just took a other Valium now. The nurse called not to long ago I told her one Valium one perc wasn't doing anything. She changed it to 2 percs every 4 hours. The staff was very friendly helped me through everything. Amazing!!

I had my 3 day appointment and my 10 day...

I had my 3 day appointment and my 10 day appointment since I last posted. I'm healing great!! The tingling and burning sensation has started which he told me was nerves coming back to life. Great sigh of relief there haha. I'm very high still but have been shown how to do the massage to help them fall into place. I'm absolutely obsessed already and can't seem to keep my hands off them. They are very pretty to look at and I can't wait to wear real clothes again. I started at a 34AA and at this moment look to be around a D but I'm not 100% sure. I just know they are big and fit my frame flawlessly. Dr. Pousti used his judgment on my size and its like he could see into my mind on what I wanted :D !!

Congratulations! It can be an emotional roller coaster but I'm glad to hear your gradually feeling better. Hoping you took something to counteract the constipating side effects of the pain meds. ;)  What was your pre op cup size? Had you been contemplating implants for a while? Looking forward to your updates!

I was 34aa pre op. I've been looking into this for around 6 years and am so glad I did. They are starting to heal up now and it's been a great recovery.

It's been exactly a week. I'm feeling pretty good I'm weaning myself off my Percocets and it's kind of still painful. I can't lift my arms above my head or really even away from my body but that's on doctor's orders. Ended up getting 500cc which he said will be a D. :)

I'm fully off them now. Not by choice I would love to have then for sleeping but the pharmacy hasn't been able to refill them. Sleeping is just plain awful right now. I wake up so swollen and can't get comfortable all night :-/ I'm still told to have my arms at my side and no heavy lifting as of right now.

well I guess it's better to not be taking them, but wont your ps refill the prescription if needed? ugh I know, I still cant sleep good and its 16 days post op. Morning Boob sucks hey? yes no heavy lifting. Well hopefully within the next week things will be getting more normal...its such a long process.
