7/30 – The aftermath

Well, I'm at home. I went in at two and waited. And waited. And waited.

At about 2:45, me and Lovey went back into the freezing cold room. Luckily, Obama was running late with his press conference so I got to see the whole thing.

Ewwwww, they insisted on putting the IV in my hand. I think the nurse thought I was gonna pass out when she put that nasty thing in there. I thought I might too.

So we sat in the room, ultra cold for too damn long! Seriously, I didn't see the doctor to draw on my boobies until at least six!

Well, I finally got into the room and they strapped down my arms and legs and started the sedative and I got nothing after that.

Next thing I remember is waking up with my new boobs partially out, LOL.

Luckily (and hopefully it'll stay this this way), I'm not in any pain and I'm wide awake and I already ate at McDonalds. πŸ™‚

Just want to send my thanks to everyone for your well wishes. As soon as the girls are ready for their close up..not THAT close…I'll share. πŸ™‚

  1. How did I miss this? You got your boob's done? Lifted, stretched, what? I'd kill to get my boob's done..well, I probably wouldn't kill, but I'm just saying, I'd like it a lot. I don't want bigger, just perkier. Those National Geographic ladies don't have anything on me. Since I turned 40 I keep worrying I'll have to tuck them into my pants soon. Can't wait to see the final outcome..I'll live vicariously.

  2. I want to know everything… how healing feels, how they feel to you, how others think they feel, any scaring (one of the reason I could never do this is that I scar HORRIBLY from even the most minor of procedures)… everything.Congrats on the new girls. Hope you love 'em!oh… and that IV thing? A doc tried that on me once and I made it VERY CLEAR that my hand was NOT an option unless he wanted me to completely flip out on him. Skeeves me out just to think about it. I admire that you made it through without passing out (until you were supposed to).

  3. I guess probably because I never really talked a heck of a lot about it. It got a mention here and there. πŸ™‚
    I got 'em bigger. I was an A and I'm hoping to finish as a C after all the swelling and whatnot goes down.
    I really do believe that it's different for everyone. I've heard some real horror stories and even the anesthesiologist warned me that the first night would be rough, but I slept pretty well.
    Meds make you bloated though, and I'm not even taking any of the prescription stuff.
    I think that they'll make their debut when we go to see Cirque in a month.

  4. I will keep you up to date. πŸ™‚
    In all honesty, at the moment, they're like rocks, but that's normal and they probably won't soften up for a while. Occasionally, I think I might be half-Krypton or something because clean cuts tend to heal super fast for me. Pain is minimal enough to really not even be classified as pain. More like the sore you get after a really good workout. Lovey cut a Perc in half for me in case I wanted it in the middle of the night, but so far, a Tylenol has done the trick.
    The scar I won't really know about for a while but I do know that typically when I do scar, it ends up darker than the rest of my skin which is why I had the incision where I did. I have stitches on the inside and surgical glue on the outside so I'm hoping for minimal scar-age. But even still, the only person that will see those is Lovey since I don't do much topless tanning.
    TRUST ME, I was less than thrilled with the IV in the hand. I have tiny veins and a medium-dark skin tone, so it wasn't the first time they had to go in that way. Doesn't make it any less disgusting. Lovey covered my eyes while she put it in. And even after, I was still feeling woozy although I was sitting down.
    We'll see how they work out. I just want to get back to working out. πŸ™‚

  5. so i'm nosy… did you do an aeriola cut, armpit, other?i like the option of surgical glue. i'm pretty sure that the reason i've always scared so poorly is that i was allergic to the suture material (I think they coat the thread with something)still sending good juju

  6. Much to the chagrin of Lovey, I went with the aeriola cut. I was originally gonna do the under the boob cut, but that scar might end up visible in bikini type wear. Not that I think for a moment that you won't be able to tell that I wasn't born with these bad boys, lol.
    πŸ™ Allergies suck. I think more surgeons are moving towards the glue these days. At least on the external stuff. Stitches on the inside.
    Thanks! πŸ™‚
