2 Months post op, a couple questions
- 4 months ago
I am two months post op. I was originally an N cup and the end result discussed is supposed to be a D cup. I had several concerns I addressed with my doctor prior to my surgery. Due to my breasts being so large and heavy, this caused them to sag. I voiced concern about my breasts being low, as it looked as if they pointed out from near my elbows. He assured me my breasts would be higher up. My concerns are, my breasts are extremely low (they still point out by my elbows) I am having an extremely hard time finding any bra that will work, as even on the longest measurement, the straps still pull on my shoulders, causing the dreaded indent and pain in my shoulders. It looks ridiculous in clothing, and finding fitted shirts or dresses that look nice on me is next to impossible. I know I am only 2 months post op, but my incisions near the middle of my chest are folded. On the left side it looks as though the incision was closed incorrectly and it forms a little pocket, and the right side the incision is very wavy. This causes sweat to collect in the folds and become extremely itchy. I have to wipe the area multiple times a day to remove the sweat and whatever else collects in those folds. I had addressed the "wrinkliness" of the incision at my last post op visit and he told me I was still healing. While it did correct itself a bit, the wrinkles are still very present and are causing an issue. Looking at the folds, it looks like it is due to the way the incision was closed. The pocket on the left side is not due to any residual swelling.The last concern I have is, my breasts are not close in size or shape. I know that it still being so soon after surgery that I am not the shape I will be several months down the road. However, I have been a DDD since the surgery. My surgical bra was a DDD and every subsequent bra has been a DDD (I am wearing soft cup bras, as approved by my doctor). I had a hard time finding sports bras I could wear because of the lowness of my breasts and size of them. My right breast is considerably larger than my left. It is over a cup size larger, again making bra shopping exceedingly difficult. My left breast is rounder, but has a pointed "wing" whereas the right is much more square in shape, larger and lower on my chest (my right breast was smaller prior to the surgery)I went into this surgery nervous, but with a good attitude and I was very excited. I am so disappointed with the issues I have. I wear regular t-shirts and my bras are pulling on my shoulders and it hurts. I lost a very considerable amount of weight a couple of years ago and now I just want to hide myself because I'm so embarrassed. Are the issues I'm experiencing issues at all? Were my expectations maybe too high? Or should I just wait this out and hope it gets better?I don't feel that my doctor listens to me at all. Every concern I've had (I didn't have many) they seemed to brush off or ignore. I'm so upset as this is quashing any bit of self esteem I had built up.
