28 Years Old 2 Children NHS Breast Reduction - Great Britian

I am 28 and I have met the criteria to have a breast reduction through the NHS which I am so grateful for. My current bra size is 34f/g depending on the shop and I would love to be a Large C/ small D after the surgery. I am scheduled to have the op on the 8th October and at the moment am feeling excited and extremely anxious. This will be the first operation I have had and it does worry me especially with having children but at the same time I know it's something I need done! I'm hoping I don't get cold feet as I know I'd regret not going through with it. Will post pics later if I'm brave enough....

This is me now a 34F/G very saggy....looking at these makes me realise how much I need this surgery.

Just over 2 weeks to go

It will be 2 weeks on Wednesday until I have my surgery. My emotions seem to be all over the place....one day I am excited about it the next I could vomit with fear and anxiety. I think the fact I have children is making it worse as I feel selfish if anything was to go wrong (it's my nature to always think the worst I just can't help it) I know I am going to go through with it I just want it over and done with now. The only thing that scares me is the surgery itself I am not worried about any scarring or anything else as IMO my boobs couldn't look any worse than they do now! Anyway just wanted to update as I think this will be good to look back on once I'm over the operation. I don't know about anyone else but it is on my mind pretty much 24/7 at the moment!

1 week to go....

1 week to go.....am I really going through with this?! Feel so full of mixed emotions, scared, anxious, excited! I think it's all the unknown that makes me scared...any words of reassurance would be really helpful right now....

I did it!

Hi ladies just an update for those that have wished me well! I had my surgery yesterday I went to the hospital at 8am and because of a shortage of anaesthetists I didn't get my op until about 2pm! What a long wait that was especially with feeling so anxious! I stayed in hospital last night and got home this morning....have been in my bed ever since! Feeling so sleepy but I think the operation went well and my boobies feel tiny to me! I haven't seen them yet but my assured me they look good! Not sure when I'll be brave enough to have a peek! I am sore but it is manageable I am just taking paracetamol and ibuprofen as the stronger meds were making me sick :( hopefully the road to recovery now is a smooth one

A wee before and after pic

Thought I'd share this pic with you all....I can't believe the difference! I'm 11 days post op today and I'm generally feeling pretty good! Still get tired quite easily but not much pain at all! I have a dressing change tomorrow so I will get a proper look at the stitches etc but all in all I'm happy and I'm liking the way they are looking! My right breast is a little bit swollen but I'm not too worried about that at the moment...
