I am not nervous at all, just very very excited! I will update again after the operation. I am also doing a BA which I am also very excited about. From A to full C.
I have done all my pre-op shopping and tonight I will be packing by hospital bag. I have to stay over for 2 nights.
My mom is coming to stay with me for 2 weeks to help with my little one (4 years) and the older two will be able to help me (16 and 13).

Morning all. I am at the office and cant wait for this day to go by. Tonight I will pack my overnight bag and take the before pics. This time tomorrow morning I should be in theater.
I looked at some before and after pics again last night and really really hope that my results will also be as good.
I am not scared at all. Just very very excited. I am worried that I will be disappointed though, cause everytime when I am this excited about something, it goes wrong. So for now I am couping my excitement a bit.
I am worried about the pain, what people may say, what I will look like...but never thought about not doing it anymore.
I will come and update again.

OMW!! What a difference between day 2 and 3. Felt like new person. Most painfull thing was the pressure on my breast due BA. Meds really doing their job well.
I even got up an looked for some movies to watch on my drive.
Still no appetite and nausius. Taking it bitr by bite :-). Dosing in and out of sleep the whole day so not completely rested nor tired.
The drains are currently the worts to deal with.
I can literraly feel how I'am getting better and stronger by the hour.
Thank you so much for all the kind words and wishes. I check in every now and again.
It means the world to me.

Love,
Lu

Feeling okay on day 8.
Can not walk upright at all. Should I worry?
Hopefully the drains will come out on Monday, I really need to feel water on my skin again.
Pain not too bad as long as i dont do too much.
Worried if I will be ready for work week from Monday.

Hi all,

Finally I was able to upload some before pics. Yuck!

Seeing my PS tomorrow and hopefully my drains will come out so that I can take some after pics for you.

My sister saw me for the first time today PO. She couldnt believe how flat my tummy is :-)

I am feeling great, just unable to walk upright 100% and the drains are killing me. It's hurting and in the way, I just want them gone. Draining less than 50cc/24hours.
I havent seen my bb yet, and my boobs are still very very hard. I feel my PS went overboard with BA, he inserted 400cc instead of 325cc. He said he went as big as he could without me looking "plastic". Yeah right...anyone who knew me before the op would notice the "plastic"now, he he he.

I am moving around but do get tired quickly.Luckily my fiance was on night shift the past week and I could cuddle the whole day in bed with him :-)

Good luck and do get plenty of rest.

Love
Lu

Hello all, yesterday was my 6 week mark for PO...

Hello all,

yesterday was my 6 week mark for PO TT and BA. My BA is healing so nice and I am very happy with the results. I hope the scarring wil fade too.
I had some up and downs with my TT. The wound teared and I had to get stitches as 5 weeks PO.Now I have some small tears all over my scar, which is healing but sore.
I am back at work for 2 weeks now and are extremely tired by about 4pm. I am swollen too and look a bit oblong as my one side is flatter and I have a more prominent hourglass on my left side. Has anyone experienced that?
I really enjoy my flat tummy and not having to feel embarresed anymore about looking 5 months pregnant. It's still winter here, so I cant wait for summer to put on my sexy clothes and parade around. *big smile*
I experience some odd pains and aches and if it's very cold during the nights I am sore in the morning and walk hunched over, but during the day I am 97% upright.
I will take some pics post them and would like to get some feedback from you all.

Enjoy your new bodies and happy healing to all.

New pictures and please be brutally honest.
