I wish I had started this journey years ago...
I wish I had started this journey years ago instead of waiting until I was 42 there are a lot of things I would like to have done for instance getting married in a church in a wedding dress not in reg office in a trouser suit there was no way I would have had the confidence to walk down the aisle with everyone looking at me. Enjoying nights out with my husband instead of going into a panic about what to wear where to sit so I didn't have to walk too far to the toilet feeling like everyone would be commenting on your large breast bobbing up and down as you walked past then backing out and staying at home instead, actually going on holidays and wearing a swimsuit or bikini without wearing a tee shirt over it. just to get up in the morning and your whole day not been about your breasts what to wear what exercise you can do, maybe going to the shops seeing nice clothes and going home in tears when you have tried them on and you look ridiculous
large breasts are literally a pain in the neck
hi nothing to report from last time still waiting hospital still cannot give me an exact date so it is just a waiting game still loosing weight though and getting into shape
a good day
hi everyone good look to everybody having reductions over the coming weeks I still have no news on my date but I was delighted this morning as all my hard work is paying off I could fit into my size 8 jeans. Although I am losing weight my boobs have not reduced in size but I wont let it get me down looking forward to seeing all the after pics over the next few weeks
post surgery bras
has any body seen the website for holistic garments for after surgery I was wondering if they are any good the bras look very good full of support for after a reduction
I got a letter from the postman yesterday morning I was so excited as I knew it was from the hospital I opened it really slow saw a date in black writing 02/12/2013 so I read on it said due to the extensive waiting list for the plastic surgery department and due to people not turning up for scheduled appointments they needed people to confirm if they were still interested in their appointment to ring and confirm before 2nd May 2014. I could have cried looks like I will be waiting forever I am youngish fit and healthy I am ready to go tomorrow if they call it has been three years to get to this stage hurry up already.
sorry the date 02/12/2013 was the date the consultant put me on his waiting list
can anyone answer this
Hi do you notice that in one of my pictures my breast seem to actually start right behind my arm pit this is breast tissue not fat because with weight loss it never changes and when I lie down it falls to the side with my breast and there is nothing under my arm then will this go with the reduction or do I need lipo which I presume isn't covered on public
I saw an article in the sunday paper for botanics creams and washes they claim to be totally organic and a miracle cream for skin healing scars people have had to live with and other skin conditions they are antibiotic, antiseptic and are an antihistamine, has anybody else used these creams it is a uk website
I am sitting here everyday looking at and reading all the wonderful stories and results and have to say I am very jealous, I don't know how much longer I can wait for this to happen for me it is on my mind 24/7. I am working really hard at loosing weight but seem to have hit a slump so my brother who is a personal trainer has sent me a protein diet to follow, I have lost enough weight to need new smaller bottoms but not tops and that's what is upsetting I put on a new pair of skinny jeans yesterday then a top and when I looked in the mirror I could have cried the top half it is all you can see which drove me to give up and eat some left over easter egg. Sometimes when I am sitting down I think you don't look that big its when you go to put on clothes that I see the big lump stuck to my chest. I am dreading another summer like this. Anyway today is the last day for people to confirm with the hospital waiting list section that they are still interested in remaining on the waiting list for the plastic surgery department I got my letter two weeks ago and rang straight away so maybe I will get a date in the next few weeks. I really hope so as it is even keeping me awake a night wishing for the letter, well postman just through post in the letter box while I am typing this still nothing just another bill. Well rant over just needed to off load as I have this nervous and butterfly feeling in my stomach everyday waiting don't know how I will be when I actually do get a date.
weight loss i hope
these pictures are of me in the same clothes after loosing a few pound (I think) and the breast are still the same size and my shoulders are really badly hunched forward when I try to sit up straight and put my shoulders back the skin on my neck feels really tight and stretched. My back is really sore this week I am hoping that it is going to be relieved after the reduction and I don't just have a bad back. Exercising with these puppies is really hard so I am trying to loose weight by dieting (very hard) and weights, I have been buying in a few items so that I am ready I found a chemist selling half price bio oil today so bought a few bottles.
another letter written
I have just sent another letter to the hospital to see is there any update on a time for my surgery I know it will be the usual response they don't have any idea of a date yet I just have to wait until the surgeons office contacts me, but I sent it anyway, maybe I will be lucky this time my first consultation was the 28th of November 2013 so it is coming up to 10 months I was told it would be between a 6 and 9 month wait. I just need something to focus on as I have lost a bit of hope and have put a few pounds back on and have not exercised in a few weeks.
the hospital rang this morning they received my letter i am next on the list for the surgeon so they will give the letter i sent to him and hopefully he will at last schedule a date for me
news at last
I got a call from somebody on the surgeons team today I am looking at a date in October I will get another call next week with a firm date. I cannot believe it is going to happen at last I cannot wait don't know how I am going to sleep the next few weeks
can anybody tell me what are the best recovery bras to get they would have to be from europe as i cannot buy from america with custom charges
pulling my hairout
I never received the call I was waiting for this week, every day that passed and no call my heart sank I really thought that the wait was coming to an end and I would have my date, I am going to call them if I don't hear anything by the middle of next week
I bit the bullet and called the hospital having not heard back from them last week as promised, I am looking at the last Monday in October or the first Monday in November the surgeon has to attend a conference around then so an exact date is not confirmed yet they only do surgeries once a week on a Monday so at least that is a bit more clear and gives me some time to start getting what I need ready and the children will be on their midterm break then.
