At this point i have not had my BA done, scheduled for Feb 5. Excited for my new look but nervous about CC. I have 3 children. Im 39 years young and have wanted this for a nnumber of years. Finally at a point where i can afford it and mentally ready for them. Im currently a 34 small B, goal of lg C - sm D. Im 5'4 and weigh 120-125. I have been reading this website to look for support, comments, feelings on the surgery. I plan on the TUBA proceedure, saline implants about 325 cc.

Im getting more and more excited everday. But i...

Visited my PS today with the bf. He is much more settled with me getting implants.my PS is awesome, spend at least an hour with us going over every part of the proceedure. I chose to go with 280 cc mod profile filled to 330. That will bring me to a small D,lg C. Yikes its happening and im totally excited about it. Oh im having the TUBA placement.

Got home about 730, went out to dinneron the way home. I feel ok. The numbing meds are wearing off but im taking my vicoden. Ill post a pic tomorrow. I had the TUBA and my belly is bruised, and swollen. YIKES! Good night all. I think i may be falling in love

Went for my post op today. All looks good. Although he went with 360 mod on both sides vs the 330 like i thought i was getting. He said the smaller was not enough so he went with 360. I also am now wearing a strap to pull these puppies down as they are riding high. He doesnt want me to baby them, move around as much as i can. He also says get off the vicoden and switch to motrin. Yeah well im not completely ready for that!
I do have a burning sensation at times on the outer edges of the breasts, probably where the muscle was "ripped" off per the doc! With the TUBA placement my abs are sore, i yhink more sore than the breasts themselves. Overall so far so good

This morning i feel pretty good actually. Im going to try not to take the pain meds and do motrin only. My right side under the breast on tge outside, hurts more than anywhere else. I feel like the meat has been scrapped off the bone, a burning sensation when i move certain ways. Slept wonderfully, on my side, on my stomach with no pain at all. I am a tummy sleeper so that does make me happy! Slept with the strap on too, whuch was fine but i took it off this am to give it a rest, those should be fur lined. Anyway im going to eat a little breakfast and ill post some picks of my BIG GURLS! Yikes

Tomorrow will be one week po. I havent had any pain meds except for motrin since wednesday, po day 1. Thepain has not been at all bad. Sometimes i get a burning sensation on my right breast, on the outer edge. They seem to be settling just fine. They have dropped a tad. They are huge, i live em. I bought a sports bra, large, its kind of tight! Yay me. The clothes i have worn in the past week fit perfectly fine. I had tge TUBA placement and i do have a small bruise at my belly button. I think the entry through the belly button is less painful for recovery, of course im basing this on others comments. Still a wee bit tired at times, taking naps if needed. But overall im doing great. Post visit wednesday afternoon. Get my messaging instructions then.

My back has been hurting constantly today. Is that normal??

Went for my one week po visit today and everything is looking good. My ps recommends message, so i will begin that process. Made my two month check up appointment. I have a band which he gave me last week, says i should wear it while im home to help push the gurls in place. I hate that band! Moving into sports bras thank god, the material on the surg bra is horrible. Other than that loven them. I do get little pains here and there but nothing terrible. Just pray no for no cc! That ismy biggest fear of this process. Fingers crossed.

First day back to work, not so bad. Im a little...

First day back to work, not so bad. Im a little sore when i bend forward. Im not sure i like sports bras either. But im setting nicely, sleeping in the band and sleeping on my tummy. Love that. Otherwise all is good in boobieland for me.

I have not had any issues with my breasts at all. They look great and feel very natural to me now. Its like I have always had them. I don't even remember what I looked like before, they are just a part of me.

I don't know but I can't seem to stand up straight. Hunched over. I have zero energy. How long will this last? I'm not that large. Also, I'm bloated. Which sucks because now I look fat. :(

My tummy was bloated too i think it is fluid retention. After my surg for the first few days i was peeing a lot, even having to get up during the night. I have increased my water intake and that seems to help withthe bloat.

There is this pillow I saw designed for women with cutouts for boobs so you can sleep on your tummy! I'm not a tummy sleeper but I thought it was really clever!

Babe, post some new pictures. :)

Glad to hear you are doing well! I was not allowed to take Advil because of something it did to your blood. I would strongly recommend taking the Vicodin and your muscle relaxers for a few days ... ;)

I saw an update but didn't see one?

I didnt sleep all that great lastnight, mostly because of positioning. The pain was not to horrible until about 3 am. Got up took some vicoden, 2, they kicked in really fast. My bf stayed the night and i didnt like the fact i could not snuggle up to him! I love that part. So he will be taking care of me the next few days.

Im actually not bad. Just took a shower blow dried my hair, put a little bit of my face on, as my mom called it. Then i got nauseated. I didnt throw up but oooooo boy. I took some zofran that i had, ate some lunch. Hopefully that will settle my tummy down. I feel so much better than i thought i would. I was expecting way more pain. I had the TUBA placement and i think that helps witg the level of pain.

Ok great - well get plenty of rest and don't overdo it even if you feel good. ;) xoxo

me too! 3AM was the unmagical time for me too! I would wake up and it was as if ALL pain medication ceased! I would run down stairs, eat a piece of bread and couldn't wait to take my pain pill! Keep ice packs or frozen peas on them, it helps so much! glad your bf is there for you!

The first few days I set my alarm for 2:30 a.m. and took pain meds then. I slept pretty well on my back and elevated, but now at 8 days post-op my back is not a happy camper. I kind of lean to one side or the other...but am excited for the tightness to subside and to be able to sleep on my side again. Post some pics when you can!

He has been amazing. Shhhh dont tell him that. Lol. I wasnt told to ice pack. Im trying to just do a little bit more and more throughout the day to increase my mobility without over doing it. This band sucks. Omg!
