So my day has been absolutely crazy but in the midst of it ive been talking to receptionist of my ps and i have booked in surgery for 17th oct eeeeeek crazy excited and nervy all at once!!!! 

Was concerned that going up 300cc might not give me satisfaction but feeling very hopeful and positive. 

Im still up in the air, obv booked in havnt paid.. do i go with my gut/heart and do it??

Also really would love to talk about weight gain after surgery.  First op 2 yrs ago i was in a great spot fitness wise and because i couldnt get back into gym for ages after ba i lost motivation and put on a few extra kgs then really struggled finding motivation to get back into it. How do u keep the weight off whilst in recovery??

It's all about the diet. I'm a fitness freak myself and I can tell you that during these type of "down" periods, it was diet related and I didn't gain weight. Make sure you watch what you eat, it is 80% diet and 20% exercise (as we age). I used to laugh at those stats but I can see it now. Make sure you eat healthy - get a good trainer who has a good meal plan as well. 

Can I ask who you are booked in with? I'm having my revision the same month as you.

Thanks for the reply @RevisionGirl im booked in with richard rahdon.  

I eat really well but im such a yoyo weight wise that as soon as i skip a few days exercise i jump up in weight. Hubby is a chef and I love to cook we eat alot of veg and into clean eating. But a wine on the weekend and a handful of bullets (my weakness) im in strife:/

That is awesome with your upcoming surgery. Remember to eat light so that the body puts its energy into healing you rather than into the digestive process. I halved the size of my meals once I felt like eating properly again. I am a gym junkie too so I understand the difficult mental battle when exercise can't be done. On day 5 after surgery, I went for a slow walk. Then each day I gained more energy to walk faster. I made a fitness plan with my surgeon about when to go back to exercise and when I could do that. This really helped my mind so that every little bit of exercise I was allowed to do felt like great achievable goal.

I'd say go with your gut, but a 300 cc jump is pretty substantial so im sure it will be noticeable.  As for the fitness for the first w wks I'd just right them off as healing time then when you're cleared for exercise try to walk as much as possible but for the first two weeks just make sure your diet is full of fresh fruit n vegies and a lean protein source, lots of water try to stay away from anything processed that way you are giving your body the nutrients it needs to heal and also the healthier version processed foods.

@Kismet going up to 775cc as thats the biggest teardrops go to ? im just hoping i get the jump in sz im after as currently have 455/475cc 

I have the 755cc teardrops--  I got them with Richard a bit over 6 months ago (I believe they're the largest size in the Mentor teardrops). I am absolutely in love with them. The size is great (a little bit bigger would have been perfect ?) and the shape is even better! Honestly,  I'm really happy with how they turned out.
