my surgery with dr fleming in brisbane oct 2013

Recommended Posts

my story, build up for my surgery was terrible due to all the other problems I was having in my family life. but we made it, arriving at hospital 8am in the morning, admitted and taken of to change which is when hubby left. I was then put in a waiting lounge, dr fleming cam to talk with me and then the anaethestic, she did an ecg on me to make sure my heart was doing ok. I then walked into the theatre, which was bizzare haha, hoping up to the operation table. needle put in, didn't feel a thing, nurse came and help my hand, that's when I asked why they haven't drawn on me, but dr fleming does it when your under so you don't feel so exposed, which I thought was lovely, next minute im waking up in recovery shaking like crazy, so the nurse got me a apple juice and I cam right, got dressed and went and sat with hubby in the recovery lounge, had a sandwich and cup of tea, then the nurse put me in wheelchair and took me to our car. got home had a coffee and some soup then went for a nap, ive been taking panadol every four hours, before going to sleep last night I had half of a stronger pain tablet and that's it, woke up today bit tight and sore with small amount of purple bruising around the incision and a little hard to breathe but otherwise perfect, been walking round the house, making cups of tea and food, my sons and husband have been fantastic. oh and hubby is very happy he cant take his eyes of them haha, so cool, they are a perfect size, not to big or small, just what I wanted, dr fleming was amazing, he came and saw me when I woke up and said all went really well and he was happy with results. so there you go so far my story, piece of cake for all those girls coming up for your turn, the build up is crazy but really its an amazing feeling looking down and seeing these awesome boobs, best feeling ever, good luck to everyone in there up and coming surgerys, I hope you have a smooth ride like I have so far.

Day 3. Still feeling pretty good. Im amazed how much they have softened in such little time. I have some bruising round ribs and sore between shoulder blades. But really just uncomfortable more than pain. I feel very blessed that things have so far gone pretty well. Ive been taking panadol every 4 hrs whether needed or not which I think helps and ive only taken a stronger pill when I go to bed. Sleeping sitting up is bit tough on yr bum but its ok.

Great story Libby. You're amazing that through all the adversity you've had lately you still had the courage and persistence to go through with this. And it's definitely been worth it, you look amazing! And so glad you've had such a great, minimally painful recovery : )

That's awesome about your recovery. I'm getting tear drop dual plane boobies in January- great to hear from someone who had roughly the same. Hope your recovery goes well over the next couple days x
