We were actually driving out of town when she called me back ,i told her hold on a second, had hubby get my debit card out and made my deposit!!!! She was great! Scott my hubby ask her about 100 more of the same questions as well after i was done, once agian she was terrific with him!!! Thank you Emily!! see you all May 9th 2016

Had to get a new Dr due to they wait til the last minute to give Plastic surgeon and then come to find out they cant do me since I already take Percocet, Like duhh you make me wait and build me dreams and spend 1000s of dollars on flying family down to take care of me and renting a house for 2 weeks as I was told a min of 10 nights, I met my new Dr today and love him!!! DR McAdoo xoxo staff is great and actually take the time to act like they care when you call in no matter what the question is, so I will soon see how great he does as I believe he is going to do a miracle on me. thanks for everyone's continued support

Day 11

Headed to Dr this morning, they have no set appts over here but so far haven't had that bad of a wait, however I am going to explain my whole surgery ordeal when I have the energy to do so! Still very sick to my stomach feeling constantly ! Went away last night actually for the entire evening, go figire my kids had to go back home. They were great, my daughter really surprised me and stepped right up to do what ever I needed, I felt so helpless! Kept telling myself why the hell would I put any one through this!( Ugh) My husband and daughter were the best nurses any one could ever want and be so lucky to of had, I'm so blessed

June 1st 12 day post op

Felling so much better today, I went back to office as i was just a wreck agian, i think it was due to looking at every ones after reviews instead of just taking it easy and worry about mine, lol so still have drains in,however i do think we will be going back tomrow or Friday! i am hoping to have less then 25cc iin a 24 hour time,then they can come out, Cant wait to take a good shower, boobs are better then i would of thouht in 12 days, left still has a ways to drop alot but over all very very happy

Went to Walmart today to get a new ace bandage since one breast is a lot bigger still, I pray it goes down and get in the right position. I am so scared!!! My tummy looks terrific except I have drains in still, they are still draining over 25 cc per 24 hours, pics to follow Feeling really doped up today but have hardly taken any thing ugh

2 weeks post op

3 week 21 DAY PICS,

SO DEPRESSED, HAVE DID EVERYTHING I WAS SUPPOSE TO DO BUT LEFT TAPE CAME OFF DUE TO RUBBING OF CG!! WE HAVE TRIED MOVING IT DOWN ETC, AND IT STILL CRAWLS UP AND RUBED THE TAPE OFF, SO I SLEPT ONE NIGHT WITH CG WHAT A MISTAKE THAT WAS, OMG I WAS SO SWELLED UP ON BOTH SIDES, I HOPE MY LEFT BREAST WILL ROUND OUT SOME IN TIME TO COME, ITS LIKE ALL MY OLD STREATCH MARKS ARE UNDER THE BREAST NEXT TO UPPER RIBS, ITS SO HIDIUS, I HAVE WAITED ALMOST 25 YEARS AND THIS IS WHAT I GET, I WAS WARNED GOING TO MIAMI, BUT I LIKED THE DR, AND I WAITED TIL I HAD MONEY FOR NAPLES WELL I WOULD NEVER OF GOT THEM, GOSH WHAT DID I GET MY SELF INTO

incissions are looking really good this morning

First off I do need to clarify I did stay over In Miami for 17 days, we rented a really nice house and had my family there to take care of me, which they were terrific!! We drove back to Miami yesterday as I am still supposed to see him once a week!! Nurse took my right drain out as night before my left one just came out on its own, I did not even feel it, I was still draining right under 25 cc per 24 hours and then my right drain they took out was about the same! Dr McAdoo and his assistant Jennifer was taking there time and going over all my issues and concerns and addressed each and everyone, and then some issues and things I need to make sure to do that I was not aware of. I feel so much better now, Dr McAdoo is a really great PS and I am so very happy I choose, him!! I tend to worry over everything and with all the gossip and crap going on in Miami I was a little more nervous, Iask my self how could I have done this to my self and my family, I do admit I was scared and over reacted!!, was just scared I did know it would take time and I am seeing its healing terrific as of this morning my worries are lifted and knew it would take time, The thing that a lot of people tend to forget is people have problems with the best of the best Plastic Surgeon's, and problems with some that should not be practicing, Complications do happen and we do know this before choosing to do this, I am very happy with my healing today!! so very happy, I choose Dr McAdoo!! incisions looks so much better today,

5 weeks Tomorow

I am 5 weeks post op, had been pretty scared and why the hell did i do this to my self felling, as i had a wound under both breasts after tape came off, actully it really got bad about 2 weeks ago as it kept getting worse,my post up bra was rubbing at bottom of both insiccions and kept getting worse, went back to Dr. yesterday as to tell me its not infected, and as far as my tired and not wanting to do any thing is normal as each person heals at a differant pace,! I sure hope shes right, actaully the past 2 days ive felt the best yet, so hopefully i am getting back to old self execpt these wounds are so bad, and the fish line stiches keep poping out now and not letting it heal as she pulled a couple out, and felt better instantly in those spots,I did however start just wearing nothing up top for the past couple days and its already scabbing finally, since they told me to do the saline wound care 3 times a day only kept it moist, it was doing nothing but getting worse so Nurse did tell me if it feels right and since its actually working to keep it up, pics to follow soon

5 weeks

I am now a little relieved as I can finally see the great results I was told I would have, it just took me a little longer then others, also still trying to get left breast to drop but due to my wounds under breasts I had decided to just concentrate on one major thing at a time and it seems to be working a lot better this way! I was trying to do to much to my breasts and they were not ready for nothing but to let the under part heal, slowly but surely coming along,

7 1/2weeks
