Day of treatment
Well it's beeen about 9hrs since my surgery and I feel amazing!! I'm in only minor discomfort but can move my arms above my head...almost feels like I worked out at the gym yesterdy and feel the slight muscle ache from it today. I've only taken 1 T3 and am iceing the girls every 2 hours for 20 min, any longer and I'm told you reduce the blood flow needed for healing. Talk again soon!!
Well it's 4 in the morning, not quite 24 hrs since...
Well it's 4 in the morning, not quite 24 hrs since my ba. I'm actually feeling litte pain so I got up to take 2 xtra strength tylenol and 600mg of advil. I'm feeling more pressure then anything else and it just feel like your bras on too tight. The girls also feel warm so I'm iceing them again.
I have to mention that I ended up getting 400cc not 375cc as I had mentioned. In one of my first apts wit my Dr I had tried on the sizers and really liked the 400cc's which he agreed based on the profile size of my ribcage woud like nice and natural. (I'm a bank manager so didn't want the fake look.) He then went over all the things he would normally go through and then metioned that most women get nervous and inadvertently call back and request a smaller size. He said that in all the years he's been doing this over 20 yrs that he's never had anyone wish they were smaller but quite the opposite. But nervousness about the dreaded number gets in the way.
So to make a long story short I had called back and gone for a smaller size, (ha...he called it didn't he)nhe showed me the notation he had made in my chart and asked if this is still I wanted. I said ok fine give me 400cc, I was automaticaly filled with panic like I was making the wrong decision, i did however trust my Dr and said so...I AM SO GLD I DID!! Right now they are quite swollen, high and apart but that will all change when they drop and find their forever home.
All i can say is if youve done your research ( I had 1 years worth of internet reseach almost daily) Then you shoud 1) Trust that you've done your due deligence and 2) Trust the Dr. that you spent so much time researching...I am thriled with my results so far!!!
So today I'm going for post-op apt and will keep you posted on my recovery and more pictures as my breasts start to change.
Thank You so much for all the great messages I've...
Thank You so much for all the great messages I've been recieving, I love all of the support and encouragement and can't imagine not having it, so Thank you to all of you, it has menat so much to me!!
I just wanted to give you some of my stats so you know where I started from...
I'm quite petite (small boned) 25 waist
Bust bra band is usually around 28 or 30 usually have to take my bras in as I can never find the right size (usually too big)
I was a b cup
I recieved 400cc Hih profile implants, under the muscle. My breast was quite empty so it has filled up nicely with what looks like no new stretch marks. Other then the one I got when I was breastfeeding 20 years ago.
I have 2 adult children that I breastfed both for approx 9 months. (that looks funny...hehe, when they were babies, they're on solid foods now...lol).
That's it for now :)
Ok, so it's only day 2 but I'm starting to panic,...
Ok, so it's only day 2 but I'm starting to panic, they are much bigger then i wanted, can someone please relieve my anxiety and tell me they will get smaller once they drop and and the swelling has gone down...what is a suitabe time to know what size they will finaly be? Even my husband said they look really big and he hasn't seen them nude yet, I'm too afraid to show him, I'm very depressed today :(
