I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for posting your reviews. Yes, I have been creeping around trying to get as much real life experience and stories I could to help me rationalize my decision or drive me crazy with anticipation. So, thank you all very much!!
I am a 33 year old mom to an 11 year old boy. 5'7" and 127 lbs. I have (haha- DID have) saggy little sacks of skin on my chest for the last 11 years. Breastfed for 15 months! I have wanted to do this for as long as I can remember, never being well endowed. I have bored the heck out of numerous people with my complaints about clothes not fitting and having to buy bras and bikinis from the little girls section. I WAS a size 14 in little girls! And they sure don't make very adult like undies for little girls. Haha.
A couple months ago my boyfriend got a bit upset with me and basically said "do it or shut up about it!!" The next day I call my PS (I had consulted with him about 3.5 years ago already) had my first visit Feb 4 to choose the size. We decided to go with 300cc Naturelle HP. I had obsessed about the size. Same story as everyone, I'm sure. Last week I had the receptionist order 340's to make a last min decision. Which I did end up going with.
My surgery time was originally booked for 10am yesterday but something had come up and I had to hold off until 1pm. Let me tell you, I was STARVING. I am quite athletic and eat constantly ( every 2 hours). My hunger was probably the only thing preventing an anxiety attack, so it was not so bad hanging out in the preop room. I actually had a little snooze.
A nurse came in and got me, no idea what time it really was. I did not have a watch or my phone. I was greeted my the anesthesiologist and I jumped on the table. It was freezing and the lovely nurse gave me warm blankets. I received something to make me relax and a warm fuzzy feeling fell over me. A nurse woke me up a couple hours later and took me to the bathroom. I felt like I had just finished 2 bottles of wine! My amazing man was waiting for me and took me home.
I am sitting here the morning after (boobs done 15 hours ago) and quite surprised with how I feel. A bit achy but tolerable. I wasn't sure what to expect. I only drank fluids and smoothies and had a few crackers last night. I was feeling a little queasy. I think it was the percocets. I threw up once last night after taking it. I will stick to Advil. I had a few naps last night and fell asleep around midnight again and I slept through the night.
My BF and I keep peeking at them. They are HUGE!!!!!! I am a completely different person! Wow!!! Can't wait to look good in all my clothes!! I hated that my ribcage was more prominent than my chest!! Hoping the ladies look good. Too hard to tell right now. But, they definitely can't look any worse than before. Haha. I already have a girlfriend asking what I'm going to do with all my clothes that will be too small. Im hoping I can keep most of it though. Just fill out the top a little better!!!!! Yay!!!! I am sooooo happy. Time really flew by the past month. And now they are here!!! Can't wait to see them and touch them!!!
Again, thank you all for sharing your stories!!!!
