I had my breast reduction yesterday and I am already loving it! I'm a bit swollen but the pain really isn't that bad. I'm more uncomfortable than anything. I think this is less painful than a c-section, or even getting my wisdom teeth out. I'm sure the recovery is longer than it takes for the wisdom teeth, but still... the initial pain doesn't seem to be all that bad. Luckily my husband is taking real good care of me, so I don't have to over exert myself.
I'm just wondering when the swelling typically goes down enough that you can see what your final shape will be. My surgeon took out 350 on one side and 425 on the other side, and thinks I will be a D. I'm just curious though. I'm so antsy to buy some new bras :) My follow up appointment isn't until Monday, then I will get the drains out and the bandages off. I'm kind've scared to see what the scars look like and as of right now, I have no idea where my nipples are LOL.
Anyway, I just wanted to say to anyone who is considering getting this done... do it! I feel so much better already, an instant weight lifted from my shoulders. I am so excited to be able to start running and doing other exercises that I wasn't able to do before because of the girls. Oh and one of the best things - they are so high up now!
