My breast reduction surgery – continued

So it is now the night before.

Yesteray morning the lovely and I tried to weigh my boobs on the kitchen scale. It was quite comical, trying to fit my breast on this small, round scale and still see the information panel. I had to get the lovely to try to read it as it was too hard for me to move around – it really was quite silly!

The weight wasn’t that exciting – they seemed to be hovering around the 1kilo mark each. I had a moment when I thought again, was it really worth it? Were they really big enough to do this?

I read the surgeon’s marketing material and there was a story from someone who had a breast reduction. She talked about how she had waited so long to do this for herself, and that it was a good thing to be doing. I think that’s how I feel about it too – that I am doing this for myself, so I can feel better.

Someone asked me at work today was I nervous? I have been, I wasn’t then but I imagine tomorrow morning I’ll be quite agitated. We have to be there by 8am and I’m already doubling the time it takes to get there so I can make sure we aren’t stressed about finding a park and finding reception.

This is how I manage it – I allow myself to control as much as I can. I don’t know any other details (apart from fasting) so all I can do is show up at 8am.

Tonight we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at a Canberra restaurant called Monster. It was so good! This is the important thing right now, to create some lovely memories to think about through the next few weeks. We’ve seen a movie last week and been away down the coast three times this year. Of course, our six week overseas holiday is very present in my mind. And I also have work things to nut out! So plenty for me to contemplate while I don’t feel like doing anything else.

It seems strange that after tomorrow, I will look so different than I have always looked. How will I react to that? How will I feel about my new breasts? What will I feel when other people react to my new shape? All these questions are still to be answered.

Wishing you all the happiness the Universe can bring,

  1. Hang in there! It will all be so worth it in the end. I’m almost four months post op now. It has changed my world! They removed 5.5 pounds of breast tissue when I had my surgery. I was a DDD/E cup and now I’m a perfect perky C cup. I love it!! If you have any questions, I’ll be glad to help you out ♥️
