28 days PO today and doing well - Tennessee, TN

I am a mother of 3 grown children. I have always done for them and now I want to do something for me. I have been wanting to have a breast reduction for years. Now I got my approval and I'm feeling nervous about doing it. I think it is because I am also thinking about a tummy tuck.

A part of me is feeling guilty for wanting to spend money on that. I get so excited just thinking about how it would feel to not have big saggy breast and a hanging belly. Oh to be able to run and jump, it has been years. I know this is totally up to me. But tell me what do you all think.

This is my first post. I can really use some encouragement.

I want to hear from you ladies who have had breast...

I want to hear from you ladies who have had breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time. Is it normal to do this at the same time and is it really a 5-6 hour surgery? I am feeling nervous being under for that long. I'm looking for some of you to share.
Thanks in advance

My date has been confirm for 12/28. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. Just thinking about going under and scared I may not wake up. There, I said it. My fear is out, now I must confront it.

This site is wonderful and I thank everyone for sharing their story. Please keep them coming for the newbies like me. You all really help with knowing what to expect before and after surgery.

I can't believe my surgery day is almost here. I took time off this week to get ready and all I can manage to do is fight off this cold. But any who I will finally post pictures, only so I may have before and after shots. I have to work up the courage to post pics of the top. Lol!

I am 1 day away from my surgery. I am so nervous. I keep thinking about my family and praying everything will go well. Everything is all set and ready to go. I will finish packing my bag on tomorrow with the few things I need to take to hospital. Did some laundry today and a little cleaning. My daughter will come over and finish the little hat needs to be done on Friday whle I am at hospital. Getting sleepy so I am signing off.

Hello ladies, sorry I am just now updating. I am now 25 days PO and I am doing well. I am having a lot of swelling but I know this too shall pass. I must admit I have not had a rough time. The hubby has been awesome. The hardest is trying to get use to this weird feeling of pulling in front of me. Is anyone else feeling this after 25 days, oh and do you all think it's too late to start taking bromelain? I posted a pic, sorry it is side ways. Does anyone know how to prevent that? Thank ladies for all your updates, I see them daily and they are very helpful.

28 days ago I was in my chair sleep with a cater on and drugged out of this world. Today and each day is better. I am so thankful for the progress I have made. I realize I have a way to go but so far so good. I know this will take time and I pray that I will be patient as I continue this journey.
Nashville Plastic Surgeon

My PS was recommended to me by by primary Dr. Dr. Davis was the only ps that I saw. When I first met him, he was very open and honest with me. He told me what to expect and the time frame, He did not rush with my first visit. He made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer my questions. My second visit was even better, this was after the 3 month waiting for breast reduction. This was when I really got to know his nurse Sally, she is the best. She handled all my paper work with my insurance and told me what to expect. We spoke weekly to make sure insurance was getting what they needed. Once everything was approved i set a date. I am so pleased with my MMO. Dr. Davis did a wonderful job and I know he will see me through this journey as I continue to heal.
