I have been on this website for a few months. My journey started in March. I had a consultation for a breast reduction. Upon applying for insurance coverage I was denied. I was so upset. Reading reviews posted and wanting this so bad I was instructed by my case worker to call the insurance company. I called everyday for two weeks going between insurance and office personnel. I received a letter of rejection. I actually wrote a letter to my insurance company explaining all symptoms associated with large breast. I know many of you on this site know these,but I will list them anyway.
Sleeping with my hand between my breast and waking up with my hand numb
Holding mu breast off my stomach while sitting to breathe better
Unable to exercise ,which increases my blood pressure and increase chances of diabetes
Unable to sleep
Anyway after my letter I didn't hear from anyone for a month. I actually thought about just investing in bras every couple of months.( cannot wear underwire,so other bras stretch out of place) I was riding in my car and received the news that my surgery was approved. I was so happy. Now I am proud to be amongst the patients posting my journey here. My surgery is set for September 17th. My cost reflects after insurance plus Lipo under the arms.

So upset. My preop is scheduled for next Wednesday, just this week I have been instructed to get even more lab work, a mammogram, and see my primary physician. I have spent so much money before this surgery had even began. I feel exhausted already. My plastic surgeon is concerned because my hemoglobin is only 11. I have been anemic all my life. What am I to do?

First shower tonight since surgery. The nurse at the ps office informed me with three nipple graph my nipple may fall off in the shower. I alerted my family for this but we were not ready to see it I guess. Pieces of the graph fell off. Looks wierd but didn't feel it at all. All stitches come out in the morning. I'm so excited.

I feel great. I have never flashed as many people in my life. Enjoying wearing sports bras that fit. I am loving breathing with ease, no back pain, and no boob sweating when sleeping. Pain is gone. Still sore and swollen at Lipo sites. Nipple graph coloring filling. Still some nipple nerves living. Lol
