Been doing way too much research that I'm possibly freaking myself out, I was even thinking of switching my surgery to a TT instead. Anyhow I been getting support from a former patient of dr Casper and thank God for this site and her messages to me, I am actually less afraid now. Still looking to find more supporters that felt like me and are regret less about their BA's.
I'm 47, 5'5", 168 lbs, mother of 4, size 38b, trying hard to lose the weight, feel like a burrito sometimes since my boobs can easily blend with my tummy. I think a TT would bring my boobs out too but wanted to walk thru the BA first before working on my tummy since I'm still trying to drop the weight. I have wanted this for way too long possibly more after my last child 19 years ago but of course with age & gravity a lot more in the recent years as I see women my age dolled up & attending to their bodies. I got the fitness bug few years ago but not the courage to step up for this until this year.
I have gone to 2 consultations only but felt comfortable with dr Casper right away of course it helped that I had watched all his you tube videos before meeting him. I been super scared not going to lie but ever since I signed up here I have found support & encouragement that I desperately needed & still need.

Im glad I signed up on this site, I want to really thank each one of these ladies that encouraged me during the last few days, with work and college, i have not been logging on here but the email notifications were reaching me on my phone and i was reading them. So again I want to thank these supporters and any one else i may have not mentioned: Beth site manager, red23, jenjen77, Formeonly830, Sweetee, liilia, coffeeluvngmommy, bellamiagia3, Mega1975, eliz.kimzapata, Bubbles1980, mommav19, and grownaswoman. I went to see Dr. Casper again on tuesday and I walked in there with so much peace, I am done worrying and there is no more scared juice left in me lol, I can do this and with all you ladies that have gone before me and those that are following. We is powerful. I go in tomorrow morning at 7am is my arrival, I'm scheduled for 730am and God is walking in there with me cuz Im his daughter and as long as I include him in my plans he's right there, will never leave me nor forsake me is whats imbedded in me. I am highly favored of God and so is each and every one of you beautiful woman God sent my way during this journey. I thank you all for being my wingless angels delivering courage, strength and hope to me, i pray to do the same. I will attempt to log on tomorrow if Im not too loaded on these 4 jars of meds they had me pick up. I am looking forward to keeping you all posted. For the ladies getting their BA tomorrow God is with you, he loves you, he knows your hearts desires, his favor is all around you like a shield, my prayers and those of all the wingless angels we have met on here will also be with you.

3 days post op and experiencing less pain, when I'm trying to stand up from a sitting position is when I get the pain. Other than that I doing a lot of resting taking my meds and wondering if using a cold pa k to reduce the swelling. My dr didn't say I could & I forgot to ask him yesterday on my 1 day op visit? Any ideas on that?

Today Im 11 days post op, thought of returning to work today but decided to take an extra day off after experiencing sharp armpit pin on my right side, found out it was normal part of my healing process so Im here resting one last day.

I'm 4 weeks post op and still recovering well, I'm happy with appearance just not sure when I can return to working out or even regular sex life, my hubby's been supportive but it's killing us, any tips on the sex subject?

Im coming up on 5 weeks post op soon and I feel great! No more pain, or itchiness, swelling, or that uncomfortable feel of something inside my chest that didn't quite feel a part of me yet. I just noticed they are becoming a part of me. I still am leary about bending over in the shower (braless) feels weird but less by the day. I want to encourage anyone newer than me to just hang in there its all truly temporary. I can't wait to get out of this grandma wireless bra and shop for some nicer looking bras but Im doing what my doctor advices because he knows best and I want great results long term. So ladies listen to your surgeons they are truly looking after us when they tell us our restrictions. Abide by them it has brought me peace of mind to know that Im in the safe zone cuz I'm following direction. Will keep posting updates.
