And the Major Anxiety Sets in…

I hope by now, my readers know I go in for a breast reduction surgery tomorrow afternoon. I am seriously freaking out! I have been nervous since I found out I was going to get it even though I had worked on getting the medical documentation for over 2 years to get it approved by insurance.

Its as if the reality is setting in. Tomorrow, my life will change in a big way. I have been told the relief from back and neck pain is almost immediate, my breathing will be better and I will be so happy I did this. I have to admit, though, as much as I am tired of being defined by my bust size, I will maybe miss them as well. It is certinally bittersweet.

I just hope the pain is not intolerable afterwords. I am a big nanny boo boo baby when it comes to pain. I am more worried about the pain after the liposuction than the other for some reason. I will be getting liposuction in my underarm area to removed excess breast fat there.

Is it silly that I am worried about being under anesthesia for 4 hours? The surgery is approximately that long and it just worries me being under that long. I am a person who has a hard time letting go. It’s not that I am a control freak, but I just don’t like having my life hanging on by someone else.

All in all, I am excited to start this new life. I will be making a video tomorrow right before I head out to go to the hospital. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers!

  1. Good luck! I would be anxious too if I were you, but excited as well! I’m sure it’s a good feeling to be able to get the surgery covered by insurance, dealing with insurance is such a huge pain most of the time. I’m sure you’ll do fine, and if there is any pain, remember it won’t last forever. Best of luck!

  4. But you’ll be so happy you had it! One of my best friends had a reduction 2 years ago. Did it hurt afterward? Yes. But she will also tell you that it was the best decision she ever made. She is so much happier now.

  5. I’ve known 3 people who have had it done and all of them are so happy they did it. Pain, maybe, but that goes with the territory. It’ll go away in time. Wishing you the best!

  9. Good luck!! It may help you to know that I have a good friend who struggled with her large breasts all through highschool and during her early 20’s. She had breast reduction surgery a few years ago, and has been MUCH happier ever since. She is not in pain anymore, is much more active, and has lost a whole bunch of weight!

  15. Don’t fret over the anesthesia. Remember that people undergo that every day for a lot longer than you’ll be under. The pain – you should be able to get pain meds – they have them – utilize them. Remember though – the body tends to heal faster when not on a narcotic. And if you’re on perks 9or something similiar) – ask for a stool softener – you’ll be glad you did. Between those and the anesthesia – you’ll more than likely become contsipated. You’ll do just fine – if this isn’t what you wanted – you wouldn’t have pursued this option as you did. Just think of how your quality of life will be so much better 🙂

  16. Thinking about the benefits of the procedure is a great way to keep your mind positive. You have IRL and online friends who are all wishing you well. Good luck!

    I am proud of you. That is a big decision. I also think sometimes how clothes would look and hang better without my large breast. I hope it goes great.

  20. Good Luck to you! I hope that it goes well. I will say that I have surgery at least once a year it seems and I always get really nervous before them, even though I know what’s going to happen and I trust my doctor.
    Keeping you in my thoughts/prayers.
