I'm one week away from surgery and I still can't convience my boyfriend!
Last week I bought 3 post surgery bras, today I ordered my scar gel, Kelo-Cote. My house is clean, laundry is done, but I just can't seem to get him to agree. He gets very upset just talking about it. I have been considering the reduction for about 5 yrs now. I'm a 36D but I'm only 5 ft. tall and weight 125lbs. My boobs are saggy..I don't like what I see in the mirror. I'm nervous and scared, but I know I want to do this...The boyfriend stresses me, and at this point I'm not sure he will be there for me... if I move forward I'm taking a risk on loosing him. :(
Today marks 9 days post surgery. What a great...

The day of my surgery was unbelievable. I arrived at the hospital at 6am, the hospital staff was amazing, everyone was extremely nice and friendly. After my vitals and IV were done I got to talk to the anesthesiologist, he talked to me for about five minutes...that sure helped my nerves. At 8am, I was taken to the Operating room, the room was a bit cold but as soon as I pointed it out i was covered with two warm blankets!!! the OR was extremely clean and the bed was so comfortable. There where about 5 hospital staff in there one of those was my PS and my anesthesiologist. Although the others introduced themselves to me, I don't remember who they were. After my PS was done with measurement I went into a deep sleep. Three hours later I woke up in the recovery room, there was a nurse checking my vitals, she asked if I was nauseas and immediate gave me a shot of phenegram...not sure on the spelling. Other then the nausea I had no pain! As soon as I got home I took a vicodin per doctors orders and went to sleep. I woke up three hours later and had a Campbell's chicken soup with crackers. I went to bed at 10pm and still didn't have any pain. The next day I woke up and went to my PS office and had my drains removed...still no pain. After I left his office
I went to the park for a short 20 mins walk. After the park I had lunch and then took a nap. On day 2 post surgery I went to Macy's looking for a comfortable bra. And still no pain. On day 3 post surgery I went the movies and still no pain. Well needless to say, I've been pain free since the surgery. I am extremely happy with this experience. My boobs are perfect. My boyfriend is still mad and won't look at them. He has been at my side since the night before surgery but won't really talk to me. He bought me a lot soups and juices and even helped clean up a little but overall he is not being very nice. He is distant and hasn't shown any affection.
