So it has now been a little over 2 months since my breast reduction. The doctor said I'm looking good and healing well.
My breasts are no longer "sore" and the sensation to the nipple area is coming back fine. They are still a little swollen but that will go away. They are also a little pink tinted more than they should be, but my doctor told me that will go away in time too as the blood flow to the area gets back to normal. My next appointment is in 6 months just to check on them and see the scarring.
I'm so happy I decided to go through with the breast reduction. I was scared to death but I have no regrets and I would go through it all again to feel how I do now. No headaches, neck pain or back pain... no feeling like people are staring at my breasts all the time and I can finally get back in the gym!!
One of my biggest fears throughout this was how my husband would feel and react. He has been so supportive of me through this (even though he didn't want to see the gals go) and our intimacy is as great as ever =)
Here are some pics... the first one is the one I took at the doc today. The ones after it are from last year and this year before my reduction. You can see the difference. (3 lbs were taken from each side)
YAY FOR SMALLER BOOBIES!
