I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for posting your reviews. Yes, I have been creeping around trying to get as much real life experience and stories I could to help me rationalize my decision or drive me crazy with anticipation. So, thank you all very much!!
I am a 33 year old mom to an 11 year old boy. 5'7" and 127 lbs. I have (haha- DID have) saggy little sacks of skin on my chest for the last 11 years. Breastfed for 15 months! I have wanted to do this for as long as I can remember, never being well endowed. I have bored the heck out of numerous people with my complaints about clothes not fitting and having to buy bras and bikinis from the little girls section. I WAS a size 14 in little girls! And they sure don't make very adult like undies for little girls. Haha.
A couple months ago my boyfriend got a bit upset with me and basically said "do it or shut up about it!!" The next day I call my PS (I had consulted with him about 3.5 years ago already) had my first visit Feb 4 to choose the size. We decided to go with 300cc Naturelle HP. I had obsessed about the size. Same story as everyone, I'm sure. Last week I had the receptionist order 340's to make a last min decision. Which I did end up going with.
My surgery time was originally booked for 10am yesterday but something had come up and I had to hold off until 1pm. Let me tell you, I was STARVING. I am quite athletic and eat constantly ( every 2 hours). My hunger was probably the only thing preventing an anxiety attack, so it was not so bad hanging out in the preop room. I actually had a little snooze.
A nurse came in and got me, no idea what time it really was. I did not have a watch or my phone. I was greeted my the anesthesiologist and I jumped on the table. It was freezing and the lovely nurse gave me warm blankets. I received something to make me relax and a warm fuzzy feeling fell over me. A nurse woke me up a couple hours later and took me to the bathroom. I felt like I had just finished 2 bottles of wine! My amazing man was waiting for me and took me home.
I am sitting here the morning after (boobs done 15 hours ago) and quite surprised with how I feel. A bit achy but tolerable. I wasn't sure what to expect. I only drank fluids and smoothies and had a few crackers last night. I was feeling a little queasy. I think it was the percocets. I threw up once last night after taking it. I will stick to Advil. I had a few naps last night and fell asleep around midnight again and I slept through the night.
My BF and I keep peeking at them. They are HUGE!!!!!! I am a completely different person! Wow!!! Can't wait to look good in all my clothes!! I hated that my ribcage was more prominent than my chest!! Hoping the ladies look good. Too hard to tell right now. But, they definitely can't look any worse than before. Haha. I already have a girlfriend asking what I'm going to do with all my clothes that will be too small. Im hoping I can keep most of it though. Just fill out the top a little better!!!!! Yay!!!! I am sooooo happy. Time really flew by the past month. And now they are here!!! Can't wait to see them and touch them!!!
Again, thank you all for sharing your stories!!!!
Well that was dumb!!!!! Haha. I felt so great...
Well that was dumb!!!!! Haha. I felt so great yesterday and my poor bum was numb from sitting and sleeping propped up the past two days, I decided I could lay flat on my back to sleep last night. Well, it's 3:00 am and I am up and SORE!!!!!! Good thing I'm not alone! I had to wake up my partner so he could lift me up. Had a pee, popped a little pain relief cocktail, now back in bed hoping sleep will find me again. Oh my poor coccyx!!! I seriously have a stage I pressure ulcer starting and I am huge risk for shearing. Anyone have any great ideas for sleeping? This sucks!!!!
Hope everyone else in the same stage is sleeping well!!!
5 days post op and feeling great!!!! Still can't...
5 days post op and feeling great!!!! Still can't believe they are here! I had to take off this bra and let them free for a bit yesterday. Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh. I am supposed to wear it until my appointment tomorrow. I removed the gauze and peeked at the incision site. The steristrips were intact but from what i could see, there was quite a large scar! This doesn't really bother me, just bigger than what I expected. I will have to grab something for it.
The ladies are still quite high and making sure I am aware of them..... Lots of little zings and pings moving through. Especially the right one. Not uncomfortable, but definitely noticeable!!
Sooooo sooooo happy!!!!
Good luck to everyone and speedy recovery!!!!!
I love them! I love them! I love them! I love...
I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them! I love them!
Haha. : )
Big, beautiful and busty!!!!!! Wheeeeeee!!!! I...
Big, beautiful and busty!!!!!! Wheeeeeee!!!! I had no idea what I was missing!!! What a transformation!!! 14 year old skinny boy to curvy woman. It's insane!! I wonder when I will get over it? I wanted to jump up and hug my PS today but chose to maintain professionalism instead (Hehe) 6 days post and feeling great. My only complaint is a sore back and weak chest muscles :( I would love to see my chiro. Does anyone know if that's safe to do? Might have to call my PS.
Hope everyone is loving themselves as much as I am!!!
1 week post today!! Wow!!! Went by fast. Adjusting...
1 week post today!! Wow!!! Went by fast. Adjusting well to the new body. I have introduced them to a couple close friends as "the twins- Bob and Beez" haha. Having an enjoyable time with them. They feel a bit strange and numb on the outsides. Hope that goes away. Oh and my poor little nipples are uber sensitive. Yowzaz!!
Still over the moon and would do it again in a heartbeat!!
Maybe I will post pics later. They don't really look much different than my day 4 photo.
Happy healing everyone!!!
So I'm 9 days post op and still in love but I'm...
So I'm 9 days post op and still in love but I'm worried that my right one may have something wrong. I'm sure I'm being paranoid, but the left one feels completely different. The left one is great! The right one has had zings and pings throughout pretty much since the beginning. Today it felt like it was going to explode. There are no signs of infection, but it feels waaaaay different. The muscle on that side of my sternum, my armpit, top of breast and outer ribcage on that side are a lot more painful than the left. When I am massaging and press down on the top the prickly burning sensation rips through that boob. I never took any pain meds today. i have been taking Advil for the past few days. Maybe it's because I am rt side dominant? All the doors at work are very heavy and kind of suck to open. I'm probably freaking out for no reason. I drove for the first time and got groceries today after work. That sucked and I was exhausted. Good thing my son was with me. He had to push the cart and pack the groceries. Too bad he's too young to drive or I would have made him.
So has anyone else had a similar experience? I spoke to the receptionist at my PS office and I can go see him at the hospital he also works at tomorrow. I would hate to waste his time, but I have never done this before. Haha.
I'm probably just being crazy....
Coming up to two weeks!!! They are quite lovely...
Coming up to two weeks!!! They are quite lovely and I'm sooo happy with them. They are the perfect size and I love the roundness of them. They are getting squishier and I have trouble keeping my hands off them. Haha. I hope I don't subconsciously rub them in public. Haha. You know... Sort of like when you catch yourself talking to yourself out loud at the grocery store wondering if you already have mustard or whatever at home. Haha. Maybe no one does that but me.
The right one is still a bit sore, but i can fully extend my arms above my head. Yay! My poor poor nipples feel like they have been rubbed with coarse grain sandpaper. Hope that goes away soon. Ouchie!!!! I took off the steristrips today and the incision looks pretty good. I still gawk at myself in the mirror shocked that they are here.
My hubby hates them. He is having a hard time adjusting. I just hope he will learn to love them. They are here to stay!!!
