I've always said that if I could, I would, but...
I've always said that if I could, I would, but I've never checked into it until now... I manged to convince my Chiropractor to write a letter to the insurance company saying that he thinks I will benefit from a reduction. After the letter was in my hand I made a consultation appointment with my PS. I never thought that the insurance would agree, but they did! I honestly thought that my case wasn't solid enough, but it was and my surgery is scheduled for September 18! I'm excited and a ball of nerves all at the same time. I've read and researched in attempts to prepare myself as much as possible. I even have a whole notebook page full of questions to ask my PS the day of my pre-op. I'm a planner by nature and trying to have this process go as smoothly as possible.
Getting Closer - Less than a month away
I go for my pre-op on September 3 and am literally anticipating the day! I've already bought a whole list of supplies that I think I will need and am SO OPEN TO ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS.... I know I still need to get some anti-bacterial soap and I need to order an extra surgical bra or two..... But I did get stool softener, surgical tape, mederma and some panty liners..... I also did some research and ordered a whole list of vitamin supplements that promote healing within the body after surgery so I'm remaining hopeful that this whole process is going to be smooth and with minimal pain. I only have 7 days off work.
My cost discovered -
I found out today that my insurance is going to pay 80%. 80% of the hospital visit and 80% of the doctor's office fee..... After all is said and done, my portion will be around $2,500. The cost was a let down, but I have to look at the bright side.... it's much better than having to foot the entire bill.
There's no waiting for a better time.... the better time than NOW, so I am going for it!
two days and counting
It's almost go time! I've planned as much as I can, bought everything I can think of and I THINK I am mentally prepared. I keep reminding myself of the POSITIVE things that will come from this. I will FINALLY be able to run and do jumping jacks without having hold my boobs while wearing TWO sports bras. I will FINALLY have clothes that actually fit. People will FINALLY talk to me instead of to my boobs!
I do have to admit the fear of the ugly/nasty scar though. I still want to look beautiful for my husband.
TODAY IS THE DAY
18 Sep 2014
Day of treatment
Right now is the last time that I will ever wear a DD size bra again! I'm so looking forward to smaller less noticeable boobs. I'm a little nervous, but am ready to get it over with and start moving forward! I'll be able to exercise/run.... jumping jacks! Less cleavage! I can't wait!
