hello again, as you mentioned we have similar stats, I'm 5 4 currently 150lbs and had my surgery about two weeks ago. I have 700 cc silicone smooth mentor hp under the muscle implants. I love the big fake look so my ps didn't even give me 600cc sizers, lol we started at 650 and went up from there. As I mentioned I am only 2 weeks post op but if you have any questions for me I am more then happy to answer them. Congrats on your journey and I am really excited for you! Keep us posted

I am curious is there anyone out there that has fibromyalgia n has gotten implants???
Did you ever nurse with your daughter? To me, that's what the pain feels like. Your milk coming up and you are engorged and skipped a few feedings. lol. I was a B, then an a cup due to nursing and losing weight, so I had some extra skin. I haven't measured myself cup wise but the doctor put in at least 510 cc's and they seem perfect. My skin isn't too tight etc, I probably could've went bigger but told him I didn't want too big being a teacher and all. ha. We originally settled on 390 cc's but he said during the surgery it just didn't look right so he went with what he thought I'd like. I told him at least a full C. I wouldn't be surprised if it were even a D. I'll have to get measured once the swelling goes down.

Well I had to switch my surgery so now im going in august 22 at 7:30 am ! Finally im going for 550cc does anyone have any suggestions for preparing for this? Hubby will be helping me we have an almost 2 in a half hour drive to surgery n back home so any advice would be helpful I got button ups my pre op vitamins n a good supportive bra
I'm scheduled for September 5th, under the silicone and muscle. I'll be finalizing size and profile on Tuesday (so excited). I know the time is going to fly by but 17 days just seems so far away. My 26 year old daughter is flying out from VA Beach the day before to share in this with me.

Im getting up n walking which helps circulation n drink lots of water my tummy is a bit bloated from everything but flushing seems to help as its not too bad today. I ate really lightly yesterday sounds funny but im eating baby food lol it works for me! They also gave me a nausea pad on back of my ear helps so much! I am jus super tight n swollen today getting up isn't too bad I worked out my legs n core really good for this every once in a while I feel a pain in my left nipple boy are my nips super sensitive!

I am having trouble sleeping pain meds tend t do the opposite for me I don't sleep I have energies I wana get up n do things lol jus resting watching tv n reading its only day 2 n I am bored! Lol so that's it for now. I am very happy I did this in the recovery isn't nearly what I was stressing on

Well a quick update I had to double up on the pain meds my sides are swollen n it hurts! So I am jus hanging out on couch icing it n oh boy ice helps! But since I do have fibromyalgia I feel pain differently from a normal person I feel it more intensely but.I am used to pain so its bearable. But I do feel it! To my Boobie friends getting closer to their surgeries I highly recommend working out your legs n core you need that strength!
Me too lol I took a good snooze lol I jus hope I am able to sleep through the night tonight. Other than that I am jus icing all day it helps soothe! N my sides are perdy swollen n they hurt right now

I was a bit scared to keep moving around lol I called my bestfriend she came n picked me n my daughter up to get out of the house we stopped n got lunch I started to have a lil panic attack. But I think it was due to not eating enough especially while taking these strong pain meds all is well now I managed to sponge bathe myself shaved my legs can't shave my under arms yet lol im swollen up into my armpits that is uncomfortable I am glad I went with the size my surgeon recommended for my body type it fits be perfect! So me n my daughter are back home now lightly picking up around the house we are bored! Lol I seem to be more bloated today also I had to take a laxative n keep slamming water! So far good!

Hi Sheri2369! Looks like we share a lot of things in common. I am seeing Dr. Todd Case for BA too. My surgery is scheduled for Oct.1 but I'm getting nervous. I have fibromyalgia as well but i never thought that getting a BA would cause any additional pain. I am not looking forward to the recovery part now.I used to get severe chest pain but for almost a year now its migrated elsewhere. I'm hoping that after my surgery that it doesn't return.

I noticed also that you said that you were in an accident. I too was just in a car accident. I shattered my right wrist along with severing several tendons, fractured my pelvis in 5 places and and got severe road rash on my knee. I know what pain is like too.

I hope your recovery is going well!
