I've been on this site for a while reading...
I've been on this site for a while reading everyone's stories. I love coming on here because it has been a great source for information. I am scheduled to have my surgery on Friday April 22nd with Dr. Louis Mes in Lafayette, Louisiana. So far everything has been great. My consultation I had with him was more than what I could've hoped for. Immediately upon meeting him, he came in with a big smile and put me at ease. He was very thorough with all of the information on the procedure and took his time explaining any questions I had. His staff has also been great. Both times I have went in for my consultation and preop appointment they made me feel so comfortable and you can tell they really care. I'm very excited to have my surgery next week, but also very nervous. I get anxious really easily, so I made sure to ask them to give me happy juice when I get there for surgery lol

I have been working out 5 days a week, but this week I have stopped upper body exercises until after I'm healed from surgery. Any advice for recovery would be greatly appreciated. I will try and post some pictures soon!
I have boobs!
I had my surgery Friday. I was so nervous but Dr. Mes came in and put me at ease and the the anesthesiologist came in and gave me the happy juice for my nerves lol that definitely helped a lot. He was also very nice. Everyone there took really good care of me and made me feel so comfortable. I woke up in a lot of pain so they had to prescribe me some muscle relaxers. Luckily the surgery center has a pharmacy. The whole day after surgery was pretty much a blur from being on the pain medicine. I got nauseated some but never threw up. The phenergan helped with that. I just made sure to take it with my pain pills. So far I haven't located too bad. I've been drinking my ItWorks Berry Greens since they work as a detox and it's great for the immune system. Also after I get my bath this evening I'm going to put on one of the ItWorks wraps which also works as a detox and anti-inflammatory. They always make me feel so much better. Tomorrow I go for my post op visit. I haven't been allowed to take my surgical bra off since surgery. They have the gauze stuffed in it. They should take it off tomorrow and I'll get to wear a regular sports bra woo hop this contraption is making me itch and I'm ready to see the girls lol Are there any sports bras anyone recommends getting to wear until I can wear a regular bra?
5 Days since surgery!
It's the 5th day after surgery. Definitely feeling a lot better. I'm off of my pain medicine. I just have to take ibuprofen every now and then because my muscles will tense up some mornings and evenings. I had went to the doctor on Monday. They said everything looked good. No bruising and I could drive and not to lift anything over 10 lbs. I go back tomorrow to see the doctor. They said he will clip my stitches and they will teach me how to do the massages. So far I am very happy with how they are looking. Can't wait for them to start dropping. The photo attached is from the 3rd day after surgery when I was finally able to take my surgical bra off.
