EEEEEEEK! Only two more weeks and I will no longer look like a 12 year old boy!!!! I am a 33 year old Momma to two wonderful kiddo's ages 4 and 6. I am 5'7" 135lbs, addicted to Hot yoga, running and lifting weights. In the last couple years I have worked very hard to get my pre-baby body back, and I have succeeded, minus the boobs......well, I never really had those to begin with, HA! I am super excited and nervous about the procedure. I have had two C-sections, so I am not so much worried about the pain, but I am worried about being put under anestesia. I am also worried about not being able to work out for 3 weeks. I work out or run 5-6 days a week for the past two years, so taking so much time off freaks me out, but it will be worth it in the long run. For those of you who are runners, how is it running with boobs?? I could seriously probably run right now without a sports bra and be fine, so I am nervous about how this is going to affect my running. I am not going to go to big. I am a small A now, and I am thinking about 335cc's silicone subfascial. I am hoping this will make me a C-ish?!?! I have my pre-op appointment on Tuesday to make the final decisions!! Also, have any of you taken Dilaudid for pain?!?! It looks like that is what the Dr. is going to give me, and I am kind of nervous about taking something I have never had before. Oh my gosh, I cannot believe only two more weeks!!!!!
Had my pre-op this week!!! So excited! Decided...

Had my pre-op this week!!! So excited! Decided for sure on the 339 cc's, I think the size will be good on my frame. Got my meds and all the post op instructions. One thing I noticed is that it doesnt say anything about icing?? I am going to have to call my PS and see what they suggest. Are you supposed to ice? Also what is Arnica? I have read some posts about people taking it......

I am on the other side!!! YAYYYY! The surgery went well, piece of cake! The worst part for me was my surgery was at 1pm, so I couldn't have anything to eat or drink all morning. When I woke up from surgery I just wanted a big glass of water! After my surgery I had a hard time staying awake, I pretty much ate dinner and dozed off and on for the rest of the night. I am a back sleeper, so sleeping wasn't an issue. I stayed on top of my pain meds every 4 hours for the first 2 days, but today on post op day 3 I am stretching it to just over 6 and I am feeling pretty good. I got to see my "girls" for the first time today and I am so pleased! I couldn't be happier with my results. My left one is a tad higher and more swollen than the right, but I am sure that will change. So so so happy!!!! I have to say the entire process has been pretty easy!!!
8 days post op.

I am now 8 days post op and doing great! I have been off the narcotics sinc day 6, I am still however takng Tylenol a few times a day. I have been getting incision pain the last couple days, but my PS says its normal as the nerves are starting to come back alive?!? Its not all the time, mostly after I have been doing to much. I have to say that is the hardest part. I have a 4 year old and a 6 year old, and a hubby who travels for work. I have been on my own with them for the last couple days, and it is easy to over do it. I have to keep reminding myself that I am still recovering and to sit down and rest once in awhile. I have felt so good through this whole process, it is easy to forget!! I am excited that I only have 2 more weeks and then I can workout!!! I am hoping to be able to start back with spin and hot yoga ASAP!! I am sure my running will be a little slower, but that is ok!! SO HAPPY!
Kind of freaking out

Okay, so I know it is still way early, but I am kind of freaking that my left boob is still higher and smaller looking than my right. I didn't have much difference in size between my left and right before my BA, so I am worried as to why there is a difference now. I know they drop and fluff and different rates, but my right seemed to be lower since day 3. Help!!!!!
