Here I am again writing about my “boobs” I know it’s becoming quite boring but I can’t help myself – you have no idea how much has changed since I’ve had this done.
Damn I’ve been sore and I mean real pain. After 2.5 weeks I went back to work and while I still believe I couldn’t have lasted another day at home because I was so bored I didn’t realise how much it would take out of me by working. No I didn’t overdo it and certainly didn’t go out of my way to do that but by Saturday I spent the entire day in bed. I was exhausted and “pissed off”. Why “pissed off” because over the years I have been one of those people to go through just about anything and get over it as quickly as it started I realised this time that especially at my age there was nothing I could do about it but wait it out.
I have been sleeping nightly on my back – I couldn’t turn in any way and around 4.00 am every day I would wake up with a back ache. Hey! I was supposed to have backache because of my boobs not in spite of them. I have been uncomfortable in more ways than one and the only thing that I’ve been able to do is lay back and not move and the pain goes away.
Having said all that I had a meeting with my doctor at 5 weeks and I felt great. Earlier in the day I got dressed and went for a bike ride. Yes, on a bike. I haven’t been on one in 20 years and while I was still very shaky I didn’t fall off and boy am I proud of myself.
Yes I’m still in pain and the surgery didn’t leave me looking very pretty but I’m good, in fact, I’m better than good. I went out this week and bought clothes. OK so they are not five sizes smaller which I would like, they are are still the same size that I’ve bought before but I don’t look huge any more. I look reasonable. I can wear a tee shirt and that’s the best feeling in the world.
Do I recommend it to everyone who has huge breasts? Absolutely but just remember one thing. You have to be ready for it. At 52 I was. I don’t go around saying “why didn’t I do this years ago” because I really wasn’t ready for anyone to “cut me up” but I’m old enough now to appreciate he difference it is making in my life.
I still have a long way to go and certainly I have weight to lose but I do know that this has been an eye opening experience and one I wouldn’t have missed for the world.
I’m happy with my decision and for that reason alone I am feeling fantastic.
Investigate all the possibilities on your own before you make an informed decision about your own body and you too will feel as good as I do.
