  1. Hi everyone, My twin sister and I got our surgery done together by Dr Tang on thursday 25th feb! At the Concord private hospital. Everything went smoothly thank god. We had our consults a day before with dr tang. Was exciting. I chose 295cc Moderate round textured implants . My aim was not massive boobs, just plump C cups. Dr tang was very sensible at the consultation. . On surgery day he was very energetic and bubbley! He took approx 45-55 mins on my surgery, our nurses said aparently he is one of the faster surgeons at TCI. A little few random facts i can think of that i want to share. At the hospital, we had this asian lady named Nicole for our nurse. She was absolutely HILERIOUS. if you get her you will fall in love ! She was so caring and comforting, and after surgery i had to ask her to please stop being so funny because i didnt want to laugh LOL. Ok another random thing i can think of, the second night post op was absolute HELL. my sister and i took 2 pandadine forte and 1 antibiotics at dinner which was approx 7pm. Then around 3.5 hrs later we took one endome each to put us to sleep. (Endome is a stronger pain killer that you only have if you require.) ... biggest mistake of our life. We were up every hour vommiting. I vomited 7 times, my sis 9 times. Please girls, be careful. Dont over do your meds. We got carried away. Vomitting 2 days after a BA doesnt feel slightly nice. It hurts, alot. I just want to warn yous dont over do pain killers. Ok so today, on a brighter note, we are 3 days post op. Today we got out of bed OURSELFS alone. Which hurt, but was a massive achievement. I cantwait untill i can sleep on my back again, my neck and back are in so much pain. I am a bit dopey at the moment, ive got heaps to tell yous but dont know where to start. Please ask me anything you want! I would love to help or explain any quires where i can. 😊
  2. Hey Girls! Just wondering what is the difference in having your surgery done at a Hospital or at the Day Clinic? Apart from paying more if you choose to do the surgery at the hospital. Has anyone had any issues or points to be raised in this situation that you have been through before?
  3. Got a call this morning that I have to have my op in a different hospital I booked my accomidation and paid for it so I was close to my ps office but now I have to travel over an hour to the hospital instead of a quick 25 min ride I know it's not a deal breaker but it's just upsetting me because Im flying in from so far away plus I'm hormonal atm lol it made me burst into tears as now it means hiring a car rather than borrowing a family members that lives there as we will need it for the full day my step mum and sister will have to spend the day in Brisbane :/ I love my surgeon and I get it it's a crap time of the yr and the other hospital wont be open but still my anxiety is through the roof atm Not to mention my phone call felt super impersonal :/ being told i was receiving a curtesy call ???

  5. Hey everyone! I just moved to Australia last year. I had a breast surgery done when I was 17 in switzerland due to an enormous difference in size between my left and right breast (left was a small A and right was a big C). Now I'm having some problems with my left silicone implant because it turned around and i can't turn it anymore and need to change the implant. Anyone who can recommend a surgeon that operates in a hospital? Also will i be able to go home straight after? Last time i had to spend a week at the hospital. It doesn't matter where the surgeon is located. Thanks everyone!!
  6. So it was a while ago but these are my notes from the day of the breast reduction, after checking into Bumrungrad but before the surgery. I thought it would be easier to just transcribe rather than come up with a new take on it: ------------------------------------------------------------- I've been admitted, vitals taken (BP is up, normally perfect 120/70-80, now 144.....nervous much? lol), and taken to my room to put my stuff away and change into the operation gown. They made me take off my undies too and have not given me any disposable ones/anything to wear down there, which feels a bit vulnerable. The nurses are lovely, very calming, except they keep asking me where my family is, lol, and they don't seem that reassured when I tell them I'm a nurse and can cope (should I be offended, lol). But it's a different culture, family is very big here. Not that it isn't at home. They didn't have any regular single rooms left in my ward so I got upgraded to a suite or a fancier single room or whatever it is...... and it's even nicer than my hotel (much!). I don't normally have my head turned too easily and I certainly don't equate "posh" rooms with necessarily being a good hospital -- hell, I'm a nurse, I know more than most that the trimming is the least important part of a healthcare facility -- and am the first to denigrate some of the posts I've read which cite how easthetically pleasing a hospital was when describing how good a facility it was.... BUUUT it's difficult not to be impressed by this suite! I took heaps of photos and then realised I couldn't upload them without my SD thingie. So by the time I started taking photos with the laptop I was waaaaaay over it. But the bathroom is huuuge, the flat-screen tv is huuuge, there is a fridge and an oven-thing (WTF??), a kitchenette to go with it, a little alcove just for the nurses' handwashing station, and a sitting room with a bay window couch big enough for next-of-kin to sleep on. The bed is a Hill Rom (just like home!), there is oxygen and suction controls hidden behind a wall panel, there's an emergency button in reach and the usual nursing call button/television control, plus a normal tv remote, and a little control panel which controls all the lights and a/c and alarm clock and MY FAVOURITE: buttons to open and close the window shade! Love it! Want it! They use a Baxter IV machine as well but it's different to ours. And there's a cute little motivational whiteboard with "goal of the day" and "questions to ask my Dr" type headlines on the wall. I have also been cannulated, which doesn't hurt a bit. I;m actually loving the 'patient experience' aspects of this whole thing, which I think will add a new depth to my nursing practice as I'll have experienced it from the patient's perspective. And my ID band even has my photo and a barcode as well as the usual details we use back home......maybe for double-checking drugs, they scan the patient code before giving? I LOOOOVE the idea, we should totally do that, how could it not reduce medication errors and so forth! And we no doubt will...... in about 10 years. So I'm now just waiting for the anaesthesiologist and the orderlies with the transfer trolley to take me to theatre. Better prepare for them.
