I'm 47 years old and have always been big busted. No lie...I woke up one day and there they were. I never needed a training bra, I went straight to a C-cup. Before I graduated high school I was in a DD. I always had back, shoulder and neck pain and migraines. I was always aware of the way people looked at me. Sports...forget it! Oh sure I would have liked to play volleyball but I didn't. Jogging was out of the question. You get the idea. So now here I am. I've been visiting this website on occasion because my husband and I have discussed the surgery. I've been talking about it for a few years. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia several years ago and I suffer with pain every day. I'm on medication but I refuse to up my dose because it's a narcotic. So I began my research which brought me to "you". This is one of the best websites that I have found on this topic. I'm so glad that women are willing to share their story with others. It's what helped me to make up my mind. Not to mention the fact that my boobs starting growing again. Apparently this is normal when some women reach a certain age. In the past two years I went from a 40DD to an 36H. After surgery I will be a 38 or 36D. It's still pretty large but I'm sure I will feel some relief. My surgery is scheduled for Wed., May 16th. I'm not nervous yet but I'm sure I will be. I have a busy schedule which will help to occupy my mind. Not to mention I'm concentrating more on losing weight than anything. I want to lose 10 more pounds before surgery. When I'm able I will hopefully continue to lose. I'm not extremely over weight but I just feel I need to do this. So far I've lost 10 pounds. I will be posting pics after surgery. You should have seen my husbands face when I told him that...lol He is so supportive!!
Well my surgery is in five days. When I have time...

For anyone trying to decide whether or not to have the surgery...all I can say is...I DON'T REGRET IT AT ALL!!! It is wonderful to go through the day with no back pain. To be able to sit straight and tall...no slouching. NO PAIN!! I look at myself in the mirror and I am amazed at how good I look. Sure I still have a little weight to lose but other then that my boobs look AMAZING!! If your health insurance pays for the surgery (or if you can afford it on your own) it is so worth it! Just remember everyone is different and everyone will have a different experience. After reading several posts I bought ice packs, steri-strips and paper tape, which I did not need. The one most important advice I followed was buying a post-surgical bra...I just wish I bought more than one.When I ordered it I didn't stop to think that I would be changing my bra everyday because of leakage. They are expensive but so worth it, much more comfortable then a regular sports bra.
