Today I see my family doc for a pre-op physical and then go for mammogram, EKG, and lab tests.

Saw my surgeon on Monday.

Oh my gosh, I am so exited for you!! I hope you can share your story after your surgery, as it is good to have this from the point of view and experience of an older gal. I know you will be so happy and you are smart to be just glad to have them smaller and higher. Really that is the most amazing part. I can't wait to hear what you think after so many years of having large breasts. Good luck to you and so glad you like your surgeon. Having confidence in him/her is so important to help with the presurgery butterflies and all.

Phew, deep breath!!! Sounds like it has been quite a roller coaster ride for you lately. Hopefully you can settle down and be relaxed and ready for your surgery. And I am glad to hear you will be staying overnight. It will be good for you, and less worrisome than heading home right away. I wish I had stayed over, but it was ok.
God Bless ~

Good to hear!! So much happens in our lives as women and we hold so much in. I am discovering this through much need therapy. Never thought I would be "one of those people" that needed therapy. Whatever was I thinking! Best thing I have done for myself. It is amazing how much crap is hidden deep inside, as we try to comfort and protect family and friends, forgetting about ourselves. Being selfish is a good thing, and having my BR, was one of the first steps in that.
Good luck ~

awe man im sorry that all happened. but it will all be over soon and you will be able to relax and enjoy the new you. yes i had it done august of last year. i stayed over night in a hospital and i am glad i did. it was more expensive for me because the doc only did it in a hospital and my insurance only covered 85% of it but it was so worth it. i am still in awe of them. i wear things i could never imagine wearing and the best part no more pain. i was starting to get numbness in my left arm. my scars are looking great. they are whitish in color now. and bra shopping, oh my god so much fun. i could go on and on about how this surgery changed my life!! again good luck with everything! : )

Well....tomorrow is the big day!! I am so excited for you. You will feel like a new woman and I know we all can't wait to hear how you make out. Don't be in a hurry to get back on the computer. Typing does use arm and chest muscles that you don't realize. But when you feel up to it.... we will be here!!

Best of luck to you and praying for a simple and easy surgery for you.

God speed ~
