The surgery center was behind so my surgery start was 3 pm instead of 2:30. I asked them to start IV fluids easy a ahead of time. They took me at 3 pm I have a kiss to my fiance. The surgery took only 45 minutes.....CRAZY Fast!! I woke up in pain mainly on my sternum. So the have me liquid Norco. I asked my Dr to call in muscle relaxers and he also called in valuim. Last night was horrible so I took Norco, Robaxcin, and valium. Which helped a lot. In the middle of the night I took south Robaxin which helpled.
This morning in rough but dealing with it. Here's a pic

I've wanted BA for many years. I finally started doing my research in the Chicago land area. I had recommendations from friends as well as this website. I saw a total of 5 plastic surgeons which most of them had a horrible bed side manor. My very last one was Dr. Schierle and he was nothing like the other four surgeons I saw. His demeanor was so welcoming and comfortable. He took his time during the consultation and even before I met him answering any emails I sent him. I knew he was the surgeon for me! During the appointment he took 3D images of me and we discussed some options for me. After the consult was done I met with Julie his practice manager for the treatment plan and scheduled the surgery! They were able to accommodate me on the date I wanted. I was so thrilled and most of my stress was relieved knowing I found Dr. Schierle. I decided to call the Michigan Surgical Center which is where the procedure takes place. I asked for Linda who is in charge of the billing department. I wanted to find out the exact amount it will be for the OR fees and anesthesia. First thing that annoyed me was they had me down for the wrong procedure. They apologized and supposedly fixed it. Then she gave he the total which is what I brought the day of surgery. The day of surgery we went to 900 North Michigan Surgical Center. As I was filling out the paperwork it was for the wrong procedure yet again. So she fixed it, however the estimate was higher than what Linda and I discussed by $200! I couldn't believe it!! So she got Linda involved they apologized and took care of it. My only complaint was the front staff. They weren't very friendly and made stupid mistakes. Once the nurse took me in back I had my own room for recovery. I met with Dr. McNamara the anesthesiologist who was amazing!!!!!!! She was so comforting and kept me calm each step of the way! Barb one of the nurses placed my IV catheter and she new how much of a wuss I was, but kept me talking about my animals while she did her magic! Dr. Schierle came in just before they wheeled me away from my fiance. He explained more of the process, drew some lines on my breasts, and said I'll be up before you know it! My procedure took only 45 minutes, he said I was a perfect candidate, hardly any bleeding, and he brought my fiance in the recovery room to see me. This other nurse named Tim gave me some flow by oxygen, placed a bair hugger on me to keep me warm, and gave me ginger ale and crackers. Tim was so awesome I was feeling a lot of pain mainly in my sternum so he gave me liquid Norco which took the edge off! Once I was able to get up Tim helped me in a wheelchair and took me and my fiance all the way to the parking garage to our car! This experience with the medical care and professionals at the surgical center were wonderful!!! After things were all said and done there were times I had questions/concerns and Dr. Schierle was always there for me!!!!! I think he's the best!!!!!!!!!
