Went to the doc today and he removed all stitches, tubes and drains! I couldn't believe it since surgery was less than a week ago! Anyway, said that the healing process is excellent and wants to see me in 8 weeks to schedule the nipple-areola reconstruction. For those who read my earlier post, I was concerned about the size and shape of the implants....well. Today was the first day I could look at them standing up with no bandages and I am soooo pleased with them! Don't know much about the different sizes but he said that I had 480cc's of saline in the expanders and that he put 550 cc's in these implants so, I guess it's my eyesight that's going now! Anyway, feeling very free and happy right now. Thank you for your responses to my many sometimes "dumb" questions. I love ya'll - each and every one of you!!
