34 yrs old, been large breasted since I was in jr high. Now a DDD & 5'6 160 lbs. I have had back pain, under breast rashes, shoulder dents. I have been approved by insurance and I have pre op tomorrow. I'm scheduled for surgery Thursday the 8th. "Just around the corner"! I've known for a couple months & discovered this site. I'm super nervous & I am amazed at the support from this site.

I lived in Livermore back in 2001 right after getting married, then moved to Dublin, eventually moving down to So Cal in 03'. I miss the bay area, it's so much prettier up there. How are you doing? I had post op yesterday & I get to shower tonight. : ). I'm nervous because the surgical tape is starting to come off & I don't want it to.

I lived in Livermore back in 2001. My hubby and I rented there when we first got married, then moved to Dublin. Now we are in no SD county and have lived here for 9 yrs. so how are things going? I am 4 days post op, and I feel no pain. I'm going in for a check up this morning. But I feel great, other than a bit of swelling, no bleeding, no pain, no bruising that I can see "I peaked a bit". Just some weird zings and throbbing pressure, but no pain.

So glad to hear you're doing well! How did your appt. go? I'm doing much better. It was a bit rough for me the first week but feeling better, I don't do well with all the meds, off everything now.

I have a ton of feeling in my left nipple and none in the right...I'd rather have all or none. Lefty is out of control! I'm hoping righty wakes up, I won't hold my breath. It's too soon to know.

Just had pre op yesterday!!!! Ahhhh I'm so nervous! Got my Percocet & antibiotics. What type of procedure are you having? My surgeon said I'm a perfect candidate for the lolipop incision. Well, she used the technical name for it. : )

I believe it's the same, anchor, and lollipop. I'm super nervous too, it's all consuming lately. I still have to get an EKG and blood work, I'm hoping to fit that in today.

I hope your tests went well today. The lolipop incision doesn't have the scar underneath the breast horizontally. Just the vertical and circle. I won't have drains either. Which I'm ever so grateful for... One less thing to worry about. Ps I used to live in Livermore.. about 10yrs ago.

Thank you, EKG was fine! My PS said I will have a small incision underneath the breast. So I guess it's not the same. You're so fortunate you won't have drains, I wish that was my case. I'm not looking forward to the drains. Small world :) How long did you live in Livermore? I'm out on collier canyon past the college. San Diego is by far superior to Livermore!
