What do I say at work about surgery? I have a very demeaning judgemental female boss and I do not want my personal descision of breast reductbladder water cooler talk. How have others put in for medical leave. I have always had large breasts and a very small frame. I am 5'2 128 lbs and a 32DDD on on side and 32DD on the other. I have all the back pain, shoulder issues and stigma as most overly enowed women. I am waiting the insurance decision and haven't mentioned any thing at work. I would welcome any suggestions on how to approach this without giving to many details. I have contemplated the surgery for 15 years and have finally made the decision to go forward.
