Had the Surgery

I had the surgery 10 days ago and I have never felt so happy! When I woke in recovery, my first thought was Wow there is no one standing on my shoulders! I felt instant relief. I have oesteoarthritis in my neck and I can't begin to tell you how great I feel.


I was reading some of the posts about ins, they want you to be a certain weight etc. All I can say is fight for them to approve you. We all know losing weight is the best thing, but it does not mean you will lose weight in your breasts. My ins. criteria was height, which is silly. But my PS meet those requirements.

Hi ChaCha. They first told me to lose weight too. At 47 that ain't easy. I'm 5'1" and 170lbs. Had my surgery Nov11th and I have to keep looking at them in the mirror to believe they're mine. Any advice for itchiness?

Lots of people of said lotion with cocoa butter has helped with the itch. My PS told me any kind of moisturizer is acceptable. Hope this info helps.
