I'm 36 with a 15 yr old daughter. I've always had huge breast and my frame is fairy small. After have headaches, neck aches, shoulder and back problems I decided to get a breast reduction. I'm 12 days post op today and I feel good. I have swelling of course, taking it easy, eating healthy and the whole 9 yards. Getting impatient at home but trust me, rest rest as much as you can. Don't be Super Woman as most of us are use to doing.
By the way my insurance covered my procedure. All I paid was my copayment of $100 DLS
Ok today makes 17 days post op and my girls are doing well. Still swollen, bruising is going away. I am still living in my surgical bras even when I sleep. My doctor told me I don't have to wear it at night but I feel better with it on.
19 days Post Op
The surgical tape has been falling off on its own and I noticed some rippling and visual tissue area. I started to "air them out" as my dr ordered. Anyone else have these issues? Also I noticed that my nipples don't look the same. Can you see what I'm talking about?
Close up of right incision
Here's a close up pic of the incision under my right booby :/
Just a few more pics to see the difference
Update on incision
I went to the Dr. to check on my incision and she said that it is NOT infected (YIPPY) BUT that I am doing too much so I need to take it slow and allow myself to heal. She has me on the wet/dry remedy which consist of soaking a piece of gauze with saline, applying that directly onto the wound then covering up the wet gauze with a dry peice and tapping it on my booby. Me next appt is 4/24. Let's see how that goes.............
Car Accident Today
I was driving to work today and this women rear ended me while I was sitting in traffic. I lower back hurts. My boobies do not hurt but I'm worried. What if I dont feel anything now and later on I will..
1 year 10 months later
Well let me begin by saying I was never a 36D like the doc told me I was. She left me at a 36G. Either my breast grew or she had no idea what a 36D looks like.
