Took the first step today
- 3 months ago
Hello, forum! This site has given me a lot of confidence to pursue a reduction. I'm 41, mom of 3 (and done), and measure at a 36I. I've been thinking about reduction forever, but I never really felt like I had severe enough symptoms to get covered by insurance. Then, a few weeks ago, I started having numbness in my hands, with pain in the elbow and upper arm. My PCP (who has been documenting my symptoms for years) gave me a referral to a PS and set up an appointment with a neurologist to find where the nerve compression was. That appointment's scheduled for 9/26, but knowing that it may be awhile before I can get an appointment with the PS, I called today and made an appointment for a consult. And now I'm nervous, excited and everything in between. I've been binging on the reviews, Q&As and forum posts on this site and am glad to have found what seems to be a supportive environment to proceed with this procedure. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. I'll keep you posted on my progress. Thanks!
