I finally had it done, I got Breast reduction surgery!!! The pictures contained in this blog are for before and after comparisons of a medical procedure.
I'm beyond happy about it and feel absolutely amazing, now that the surgery is a week behind me.
It was a long road, but it was so well worth it. If you live in Canada, and have back problems because your breasts are abnormally large for your shape, then I fully recommend taking advantage of the government supported surgery.
I was an H-I cup with a 36 band prior to the surgery. Yes my cup sized spelt HI! I had such pain in my back from these humongous watermelons I carried around. It was stupid, but it got to the point where I'd only notice the pain at certain times or when I had a massage. I can't tell you how many massage therapist asked if I was stressed out. Nope honestly I just have big boobs.
Now a little about the surgery. If you are on the control freak spectrum like I am, then make sure you ask questions. I was pretty relaxed even though I was being put under, but when I woke up my throat was sore. Apparently, they inserted a breathing tube (I'm told this is normal) but because I wasn't expecting it all the bad things that can happen during surgery (Come on I watch Grey's Anatomy) flooded my cloudy thoughts and I started crying and I couldn't stop. Eventually they brought in someone else from surgery and he had breathing tube in as well so that was ironically comforting.
Post surgery I have been doing well. I slept most of the second day, I was so tired, but because I was sore I couldn't get into a nice deep sleep. But now I am doing well and almost feel back to normal. Then I will go and do something and be reminded completely that I am NOT back to normal. I booked the surgery so I would have the holidays from work to help with my recovery and I am not sad about this. I have been able to participate in all my families activities and I won't miss any work because of it!
I now realize how much strain my back was under because of those huge breasts, because now that it is gone I notice that it is missing, where I was so used to the pain that I had learned to live with it. The other nice thing is the breasts are back where they should be, they aren't hanging real low!!
If you are considering this I would be happy to share more with you if you require more info!!
