Heyyyyyy!

firstly....apologies for not being on here in months!
secondly...i hope everyone is ok???

well i had my exchange on october 26th. All went well.
They put in the Allergan 410's (gummy) in the moderate height extra full projection in the 370 gram implants.

They look pretty ok if i do say so myself!

Not as big as i would have liked maybe....but they are a good shape....feel SOFT....and are better than my expanders!!!!

healing ok. there is a slight difference in the upper pole fullness between the left and right side. But my PS said its still early days yet.

    Hey m-star,
    Thanks for letting us know. Someone was asking about you on here not too long ago. Glad to hear from you. Isn't a relief to have those nasty expanders out. I just had mine taken out last Wednesday. What a relief, even though I'm still healing it is great! Check in with us when you can. Hugs, Jean

    I couldn't find my own thread! ha ha!
    Well now i finally found my thread again.......!

    Hi all!
    Thanks so much for you 'hello's' and well wishes!

    A big hi and higs to Heidi, Vicki, Carkris, Lex, Diane, Kylez, Jean, Fauxma,Jan (yes i'm on BC.org!) Char, Dawn, Myturn now,Sue amd smalldoggroomer !

    A HUUUUGE hi and hug to Steve!!! =)Steve,i'll never be far away...

    i do get email alerts if anyone sends me a private message on here so thats maybe the best way to get hold of me between my visits to CSN.

    I HOPE YOU ARE ALL KEEPING WELL!!

    I went back to work last Thurdays for the 1st time since my surgery last Feb. Its good to be back.Things are feeling more 'normal' again now.Having a few symmetry issues with my new surgery but am being told its still early days. Now things are settled,i am not quite as happy with the appearence.... but i feel i should be thankful that my risk is now reduced,which was the main aim in the first place.

    I also use the BC.org site but again,not as much these days....

    wishing you all a very merry Christmas,a happy and healthy new year!

    Thank you ALL for your help in my time of need last year... you are all amazing and helped me more than you'll ever know.

    so good to hear from you!
    You were an encouragement to me and to so many others, Kay! We had our BMX right at the same time. It was through you I found BCO and Livestrong.

    So glad you're doing well!

    Thanks for helping me and so many others! xo
