Nerves And Knockers
I am 53 and because of an injury I have put on 2 and a half stone in the past 2 years which has gone to my tummy and my breasts. I know even if I lose weight on my middle, I will have droopy breasts. I hate their size. It hurts my shoulders and I feel top-heavy. I am so nervous. I am not sure why I have had a couple of other surgeries when I broke my ankle but I think it is because I am choosing this. Also as a busy parent with 2 businesses to run I am worried about my recovery. The team have been great in reassuring me and I ordered my post-op items such as a bra, scar reduction cream and plasters.
The day of the procedure was very stressful and I ended up waiting for 7 hrs. I think if it hadn't been for Medbelle's support and my excellent surgical staff I might have cancelled. I managed to through with it although it took A bit more than 5 hrs. My surgeon had to reattach my right nipple 3x because the colour was not quite right and the incisions under my breasts went round a few inches to my back to make a neat scar.
When I woke up, I was so pleased to be able to see my tummy and a much smaller chest. I was very tired for the first week and I had to go to the wound clinic a few times to check the nipple was ok which it is. It feels very tight afterwards and as someone who sleeps on their front, I have been getting little sleep. I slept on the sofa for a few nights. I found I could do things like making tea, etc., and after 2 weeks started to feel much more like my old self although I needed a siesta some afternoons. I was a bit scared of seeing my wounds, but the ones under the breast you don’t see and the others were so neat and tidy already I don’t feel like they are there.
I am so glad I have done this and my daughters say I look so much slimmer. I can now borrow their coats.
