Anxious but SO SO Ready! - Savannah, GA

I am 34 yrs old and have been wanting to have a BR for many years. I am 5'2, 205 lbs and my bra size is a 40 "G". My surgery is scheduled for 12/19/12 and my insurance is covering the procedure accept the $750.00 deductible. I was scheduled when I was 22 yrs old but I chicken out and I really didn't have any support. I decided to go ahead with the surgery because I am really tired of carrying around all of this weight. I really want to be more active like jogging but my Chi & Cha : want let me. I am getting lots of support from my hubby, sister and bestie but I still feel anxious :( mainly because I have never had surgery before. I think about the surgery every Other minute of the day. I am so grateful for this site for providing me really great advice. I am scheduled to be back at work on 1/2/13. Approximately 15 days out of work praying for a smooth recovery :) The Journey Begins...

I do trust my doctor she is great. She has been very attentive

My Pre-op was today my surgery is scheduled for 12/19 and it is quickly approaching. I had my blood pressure checked, my blood work done and a EKG. My PS and I talked about size and she said that she will try and make them a small "C". I rather be a small "C" I just don't want them to be too big :) She said, we will discuss it before the surgery because often he patients change their mind. I will also be getting drainage tubes not sure about these but this is her policy.

9 days to go and I have my Christmas decorations completed just last minute x-mas shopping and wrapping presents this week. I might have to get some anxiety meds to help me out. I can't stop thinking about this darn SURGERY!

2 days until my BR and today I am freaking out! Have been having terrible thoughts of complications and have even thought of cancelling my procedure. I think I am exhausted with trying to do so much and I am not sure if I should go into surgery this exhausted? I even broke down last night crying so many mixed emotions and just overwhelmed... Then my 5 year old said, to me mom "I love you, your the best mommy I am glad I have a mommy:) This mad me feel like if something goes wrong I didn't have this to do? I'm I just overreacting or should I just cancel this surgery? HELP!

Thinking about you this morning...

Don't cancel! You are having normal feelings that most of us have experienced. I cried up until the night before my surgery. "Should I do this, I am not that big, I have lived with this all my life, etc..." I don't regret having my procedure done at all. You will fill the same way too. Hang in there and good luck.

I chose Dr. Davies after going to another PS and wasn't confident with him. I asked around and many people highly recommended her.
