Hi there,<BR>I'm not sure if I can give you all the answers because i'm still somewhat in recovery.<BR>Let me tell you how things went.<P>I talked it over with my female docter and she was going to support me on the insurance issue. I had to follow phisical thereapy and then talk to a surgeon. P.T. could not take away all pain in back so they wrote a note about that to my docter. Surgeon wrote a note with pictures in the beginning of October 2000 that he thought it was nessecary to have the surgery done. <P>The first week of november I received approval of insurance and went ahead to schedule. Surgery date was 20 nov. <P>I had to be there at 6.30am and surgery started at 8.00am. I was out in no time, and woke up without pain around 11.00am. Just a little sore. <BR>I was home around lunchtime and took pain medication and went to sleep for the rest of the day and tuesday i stopped the medication b/c it made me throuw up.<P>Wednesday I decided that it was enough sleeping and got dressed and went about my bussines while my mother was running the house. <BR>The scares where taped off and a tube top held the bandages in place and that was it.<BR>I was allowed to take a shower on tuesday and do whatever I felt I could do. <P>I could not lift, reach high places or lay on my side or stomach. And I could not give hugs!<P>Now, 6 weeks later, all the tapes are off, I wear normal brahs and a sportsbrah and the woonds are closed. <P>I went from a size FF to a size C and can also wear surtain B's<P>It changed my life !!<P>I look good, I feel good, and no pain (could be different for everybody)<BR>The scares are still visible but I think they will fade over time.<P>Take care<BR>Ka<p>[This message has been edited by Baloe (edited January 09, 2001).]

Baloe:<P>I too have had this surgery. Mine was almost four years ago. I posted Peppermint as well.<P>Scars will fade in time. <P>Enjoy your new look, I still am. Sometimes it like a dream and think how miserable I was for years. I don't regret it one bit. I think you won't either.<P>Congrats!<P>Judy<p>[This message has been edited by bighope (edited January 03, 2001).]

Thanks Judy, <BR>I already enjoy it since I was able to buy a stretchy dress size 14 instead of a size 26!<P>I'm also recomending it to a lot of people, b/c it can do wonders for a woman.<P>I have more feeling in my nipples now then I ever had before, I realy enjoy the feeling these little ones bring me.<BR>Ka<p>[This message has been edited by Baloe (edited January 09, 2001).]

Hi Baloe,<P>Thanks for answering my questions. It's obviously something I need to think about for a while since it is strictly a cosmetic thing for me. I hope your great progress continues.<P>Peppermint
