So according to the chart I am a AA...??????
I got really bummed until I realized it's almost over :)
Playing with the plastic surgery app
Still haven't decided on a number of CCs yet but teetering at 600 after my pre op.
Pre-op went well tried on more sizers and my hubby liked 650, but too big for me. I have all my meds ordered compression garment and have post op bra. I already have so many recliners in my home I should be set.
U forgot to ask the Dr. if I can climb stairs? I have a two story and wanted to live in the loft for the next 2 weeks, will I make it up the stairs?
24hrs to go to Surg
The side effects definitely kicked in and I have bad acid re-flux. For a minute or shall I say a good part of yesterday I thought I had laryngitis. Until I realized my throat doesn't hurt I can talk and its more of a hot sensation rising from my chest. I usually take Ranitidine to combat my acid re-flux/gerd but had stopped because I didn't need it. But seems like the Bromelain brought it back up.
I will call my Dr. today to see if I can take anything, it is much better this morning but still uncomfortable.
Can't wait until tomorrow...
Day of surgery
Do you ladies pee all the time...man lucky I have recline sofa and tremendous help. Dr. Csikai ws amazing, Lori, the nurse and Ann the anesthesiologist.
It hurts bUT worth the pain.
The most thing I want to do is lay down, the relief is he tung my back.
1 week down
1.I started taking the plethora of narcotics and vitamins and my acid reflux came with a vengence. Coughing and inflammation of my uvula so bad had to take trip back to my PS. He gave me a steroid and no more Bromelain for me.
2. Coughing is hell
3. While I was at the early appointment he decided to take one drain out. This was worse than coughing, it had a blood clot attached to the end that literally snagged and felt like it ripped through everything it passed through.
4. My next appointment was today, Thursday and the nurse took the other drain it was simple, slid right out. The problem was getting on the tight behind girdle they want you to wear. Now I'm thick in the hips so sliding up was out. So now I had to have my husband try and stretch this thing over my new boobs and pull down. I don't know about anyone else but a man buttoning a onside is only cute on babies.
5. Decided to go to Walmart to pick up some gauge and bras by the time we got home I could barely lift my legs to get up the stairs and cried when I had to sit down. I'm learning to use my stomach more than my poor back because it has given up on me.
Hoping the upcoming week is better, I work from home so I started back Tuesday but my hubby will be going back soon leaving me to fend with my 1 year old I'm not suppose to pick up????
So...might be a C or B???
What do you girls think...
2 weeks down
That's the update here are some pics
3 weeks today
6 week check up
My TT scar itches and looks red at times, I'm using bio oil and raw Shea butter on it.
I can't sleep well without sleep aides and find this annoying.
I love my results, I am learning to handle my acid reflex which comes with tightening my muscles.
I can see my stomach as I eat get bigger above my belly button and it looks weird. By morning all is flat again and not noticeable in clothes.
Will post lots of pics
Ive watched to many lifetime movies to know thats not ok LOL
My right side is higher than my keft. Nothing that's like omg but he wants to fix it .
The Dr. and the staff was amazing. They took there time answered all questions and were very nice. I tried on sizers and they were not pushing me to get silicone even though it's more expensive. I have reservations about leaking and not knowing and want to be aware. Dr. Csikai I can tell is a very busy man he did my consult in between surgeries but never rushed and made sure he sat down with me to review what I actually wanted and did not hide anything. He let me know if the implant would show and how big I should go. I really enjoyed myself and getting very excited!
