So, hi. Took me a while to decide to join this community but I feel like it's really beneficial / inspirational.
I was probably that girl in elementary school all the boys thought about because I was the first girl in the class in a bra. :-/ (that's not exciting). Growing up I was the only girl in my whole family, not only immediate, but extended, that has big breasts so no one could relate to my daily struggles of not being able to fit cute shirts, sweating so profusely under my breasts that I get occasional rashes, etc., I'm sure you understand.
Now at my age, and after having my first child I am realizing that a BR may be the best route to take to ease the pain and maybe improve my overall quality of life.
My consultation is scheduled for this Monday and I'm kind of lost at what to expect.
New consultation! New surgeon!
After being told I needed to lose weight before I would qualify with my reduction by the first surgeon I was referred to, I decided to try something new. My gynecologist actually referred me to the surgeon she went to. I was almost going to overlook it being that the last surgeon met with me for 5 minutes and told me to come back but I followed through. He was completely different! Came in, introduced himself, looked at my breasts, took photos and told me all I needed to know about the surgery. Said I'll be a C cup!! ???????????????? ( I don't think I've ever been a C). He also said I'm sure I'll get approved and questioned me about when I am looking to get the procedure. I am so excited, as I felt like I would never even see this day. I know I still have a journey but it looks like things are going in the right direction! I will keep giving updates!!!!
So today I got my approval letter from my insurance company!! OMG. This is like the best thing ever. Just TWO weeks after my consultation! Hoping this means the surgery is soon! Yayyyy!!
Surgery is scheduled!
5/10/17!! Today I set the appointment for my surgery!! It's probably an understatement to say this is a dream come true, I've been wanting a breast reduction forever and I kinda thought it'd never happen. I'm sooo glad I continued to move forward with the process, I'm so blessed for this opportunity! I just want to say if you're thinking about the surgery, just go and ahead and go for it. :-)

Day of treatment
The day is finally here! I have to be at the hospital in a few hours. I'm really excited. Can't believe I'll really have smaller boobies soon!
