Starting around week 5, I noticed my right wasn't really moving at all, but my left was dropping and moving inward toward my right. I could move it more freely, but I didn't like the feel and caused discomfort. I would tape my left boob up with ace wrap, but seriously, who wants to do that. I didn't pay that kind of money for that. I found a bra that was comfortable and held them in a better position. I went back countless times to my original PS, with being told "they're fine", "they're sisters, not twins", "give it time, they'll/you'll be fine". So I thought it was me just being picky, but it just didn't feel right.
After more conversations with the nurse and the PS, himself, discussing removing or just moving from unders to overs, I just decided to remove, heal and try again later...just with someone else.
So I met with a new PS. He was a partner to one of my original consults. Wish I met him earlier...loved his personality. He made small talk during initial consult, asked my concerns and listened to my story. Then he had me change so he could make his own judgment. He confirmed what I thought initially...symmastia. I asked him about just leaving alone. He said I could, but it would never get better. He said I could potentially deal with the look, but he was concerned with the pain. I asked if it was crazy to explant and retry later. He told me I want crazy and it was very probable. He said he'd consider textured implants, but he did stress that he said he'd "consider" not necessarily do.
October 15th, my husband and I got away for a little breather. I realized, high elevations were not my friend, but not sure if that's normal. I have friends with implants who've been high up and didn't have issues, but wow, was I in pain. Everything I moved my arm or laid down, I could hear the crinkling of my left implant. I could always feel the inner edge, which was gross, but 9000 ft up, I could feel, move, and hear a crunching noise. Gross! Only confirmed I needed them out.
So, October 28th, I had them removed. I hardly buised, only a little where the tubes for the drains were. I bruised horribly, which you can see in pictures, after the BA. I had drains for 5 days. I'm wrapped up like a mummy for 3 weeks with a thick chunk of gauze to create pressure on my sternum where he roughened it up to get the muscle to reattach to the bone better. It's been a little sore, but not horrible. The pain from the implant is gone, which is what we were hoping for. I have a 10 lb weight restriction and no working out for quite awhile. I will listen very well, as I want to heal as quickly as possible. Hoping to have them redone end of April. At least it's cold here and I'll be able to be covered up. Haha! I get my sutures out tomorrow...yay! So that's it for now. I'll post my pics, hopefully in order, and then get my current ones too. Thanks ladies! Xoxo
