just recently had the TE replaced with implants, still pretty swollen but at least some of the discomfort from the TE has eased. Gonna give it a couple of months to see how the girls turned out. Still can't wear any hotchie coochie outfits, no plunging necklines or tight sweaters for me this season.

Was that in one breast or both.The one Plactic surgent I talk to did'nt sound like if he did it that they would turn out a look ok. Decided he was not the doctor for me.I have had only one breast removed but have thought about having the other removed because of family history.

The first was a biggie. You go home w/drain tubes for a couple weeks. After those are removed, driving resumes and daily life a little at a time. I had both breasts removed because I had an aggressive cancer in one and didn't want to have to worry about the other. The second surgery was just revision, where the stomach incision is straightened a bit, nipples are added and breasts are lifted. Tattooing is last. Yes, I hope the tattoo part goes well, too. Thanks! Linda

It is amazing how far they have come now in reconstruction.  I wish you well when you decide, if you decide for sure, to have it done.

 

Good luck

Wishing you good luck in finding your plastic surgeon.  We understand about not wanting any more surgery for awhile. 

Hugs, Jan

Unhappy, there are many sisters on here that do not want to think about any more surgeries, meaning mainly reconstruction.  I just want you to know that you have a lot of company in your feelings.  I think one should only do what they want to, if given the choice. 

 

Good luck to you,

 

Angie
