WIP Wednesday - the ME edition

In the interest of keeping those few regular readers I do have, there won't be any pictures to go with this post.

Thursday, June 7, 2012 I had breast reduction surgery. I requested my doc take me from a generous 36G (for ginormous!) to a nice tiny 36B. For the past week I've been all wrapped up in an ace bandage and in varying degrees of pain. As of 8:00 pm I'm on my third painkiller prescription, and am really hoping this one works!

Today my bandages were removed and doc says everything looks great. Being a squeamish sort, I didn't really want to look but I did take a quick peek. In a word. . . Frankenboob!

Now I'm in a sports bra 24/7 for the next six weeks, during which my stitches should dissolve on their own and the surgical glue should wear off (and I'm not supposed to pick at it!) Since I can't put on a real bra I don't know whether I'm a B or a C but I'm pretty damn excited either way!!! I can't wait to be able to wear some of the cute clothes I've bought and to be able to go shopping soon for more! Seriously, I wish I'd done this years ago!

Yay!I hope the pain is better today, Amy. I'm glad you did this for yourself!

You looked great in the sport bra, can't wait to see you in a proper one.
Yay! boobs in proportion to our tiny Amy!!
