Home Again

I had been thinking of seeing a surgeon for quite some time, but this wonderful post from Gillian of Silly Gilly really got me thinking, so I booked an appointment, and after 4 months in the making, my operation is now over and done with! A few days stay in hospital, and I was allowed home this morning to recuperate and heal. Pity that my operation happened the day before my birthday, I can't recall most of anything that happened during the first and second day, but I know I am so much smaller and happier! The weight that was pulling my shoulders down is no longer there, and I can lift my neck without too much hurt, which should get better with time. My Doctor took almost 2 kgs, and wow what a difference! To think I had been carrying an extra 2 bags of sugar around my neck! I have gone down from a G to a large C, and the difference it makes is just incredible. And you're right, Gilly, I too am amazed at how much my boobs don't hurt! Anyone thinking of having this operation done, don't hesitate!
Now to get back into the swing of life, with a much lighter load...

What a difference! I was wondering why you'd been so quiet.
There must be thousands of women out there suffering who don't realise that they can have a reduction.
Do we get to see a before and after (fully dressed of course...hee hee).?

Welcome home Manda..so pleased it all went well....2kg, from a G to a C, you must feel like a new woman......keep safe...

I had it done about 6 or 8 years ago and thought then why did I wait this long. I only stayed overnight in hospital and found the whole thing ver painful for 6 weeks, but it was the best thing I did.
My doctor took 1.3kg on side and 1.2kg the other and he said it was the most he ever took.
Take care

Good for you! Hope the healing goes well. (I did this a few years ago and have never regretted it.)

Glad your op was successful and you have bounced back well!
A work colleague had a reduction a few months ago and she has not regretted it for a minute.
It's good to ditch that extra load.

glad it was a success :) i always thought women that would say to me they wanted bigger boobs were nuts, they have no idea how heavy and uncomfortable they can be. thankfully, mine went down when i lost weight or I would have had to get them reduced.

So glad to hear it was successful and you're happy with the results.
I'm fortunate enough to say that's one op I'll never have to have, I'm happy with my little B's!

I am so pleased for you Manda. Wish I had had it done years ago. I feel I am too old now, but if I had known at 20 what I know now, it would have been done.

Christine M said...

Glad everything went well Amanda. Like Jo in TAS, that's also one op I'll never need! Take care of yourself. Hugs, Christine

I know so many women who have done the same thing and NONE regret it. They can all stand up straighter with their shoulders up.....I hope you had a Happy Birthday despite the owiness of the situation!
