Got filled again today. I didn’t really pay attention to how much he put in, but I must say that my breasts are much more symmetrical now. I will post a picture of them tomorrow. I would like to tell you that fills get easier as you go, but actually it the opposite. Now that I have more sensation, I feel like the fills are more uncomfortable. I can feel more than just the fullness. BUT…hopefully today was my last fill. I am SUPER PLEASED with how everything is going. We talked about implant types and I opted for silicone. I am not a candidate for a tear drop shaped implant because of the size of my breasts to begin with ( and end with), they are for women with smaller than a C-cup. Not me. My bras look like infant hats. Hah. So, I will have a smooth round silicone implant placed. We talked about how much my back is aching and he explained that this is normal because your lats are a major muscle group that help with your posture and now that they are relocated to my breast the other muscles in my back have to compensate so he expects me to get sore. He said just standing or sitting erect in a chair is a workout for me. I also spoke with him about sleeping. I have been having trouble lately because I am a side sleeper and when I wake up I have been sore. So, I remedied this by sleeping in the broken recliner. I have been trying to convince Eric to get a new one, but i don’t think that is going to happen. When I wake up from this position I can feel the soreness behind my nipple graft, but not on the outside because I still have no sensation there. Dr. Greaney said I should be much alleviated once these hard expanders are out. Today he filled the right side only. He then said he was going to send the nurse in with the implant so I could get an idea of what they were like. I was sitting in my room with the door shut and I hear them talking about sizes of implants. The supply closet must have been right by my room, and I hear the nurse say, all I can find are 400’s and the other nurse says, well, what size do you need? My nurse, Lisa, who is awesome by the way, said ” well I have Traci Rocco in there and Greaney wants to show her the implants.” The other nurse Anna, who is nice as well kind of chuckles and says “you won’t find any of those in there…we don’t have 700’s” lol. They all know me by name and know how busty I was before this started. So Lisa comes back in and says ” here is a 400, your smallest implant will be a little over 700. ( my right breast is larger than my right). 700?!?!?!?!?!?!? Holy moley! Best comment of the day…Julie says to me ” well hey if we are ever swimming together and I feel like I may drown, I’ll just swim over to you and you can keep me afloat”. She is hilarious and witty and keeps me chuckling. My mouth hit the floor when Lisa told me how big my implants would be and she laughed and reminded me that I do not have any natural tissue left and that the implant has to make up for that. I asked Dr. Greaney to just fill me enough that I fit into my skin. I can’t stress again how great this guy is. He not once made me feel uncomfortable or tried to push me into something I didn’t want. And for a person who embarrasses easy in situations like these that’s saying a lot. I am so excited for my implant exchange. He keeps stressing how much more comfortable I will be once these hard expanders come out. Expanders are no fun, but we’re not the worst part of the process so I must say I am blessed to have had in reality a small amount of pain in comparison to some things other people go through. For example Lynn Curry’s (my moms best friend) mother, is in large amount of pain right now and ended up having an amputation. Please pray for Lynn and her mother and family today. So, in reality, my pain was pain, but short lived and controllable. i am thankful for that. Others aren’t as fortunate.
Now I am at home in Reedsville for my moms birthday weekend. Should be a nice relaxing weekend. I can’t wait to see my little nugget nephews tomorrow, we got home tonight after they were in bed. Hope everyone has a wonderful day ahead of them and don’t forget to pray for Lynn’s mom, Lynn, and her fMily. Even if you don’t know them please do. God listens.
