What really matters

I've been scarce here, not even reading, but I remember someone posting about the psychological aspect and I wanted to post something my partner said. We were standing in front of the mirror after showering and he asked if I like my new breasts. Well I pointed out that, in only going to a B not an A cup as I'd hoped, the stretch marks around the bottom of my breasts from nursing my son are still there and the skin lays a little funny near one end of the sideways scar. He asked "But do your shoulders, neck, or back hurt anymore? That's what's most important." And then he did something affectionate :D
so yeah, they don't look *perfect* but the pain is certainly gone

I agree Joelle. When it comes down it the stretch marks and the scars really don't matter compared to the pain and misery that we went through before surgery.

for the most part, I do remember that, but having my partner's reminder sure helps :D lol I'm considering getting my nipples pierced and was thinking of talking to the tattoo artist at whatever place I get pierced about getting tats working the scars in

I'm the one who posted the message you were referring to. Thanks so much! I am really starting to realize that I alone am the one bearing this weight. If someone is only with me for my boobs then what use are they?


I scheduled my PS consultation for 1/7/09. I'm getting excited. If all goes well (with insurance, etc) I'll be picking out normal size bikinis for summer....right?!


Have a happy holiday everyone!!

I am extremely lucky that my partner supported me, even when at first I was determined to go down to an A cup.
You very well could be. Every woman does heal a bit differently. I'm 4 months post-op and I'd guess many women wouldn't want to be in a bikini with the level of scaring I still have, but then I have a very difficult outlook from the norm on such things :D
but lol, it was funny that it took my partner to remind me that it was the pain I was trying to get rid of, not get into perfect little breasts
