Good advice...advice somebody might not think to tell me, thanks. I saw on TLC they have programs about breast reductions...they show the surgery itself. They have coming on in August, a surgery of a woman that is a cup size of PP (yes...it exists, can you believe it??) I don't know how small she is going, but I figure that's quite a bit bigger than me and if they can make HER look good and feel better about herself and have less body pain, then just imagine what they can do for ME.
I'm going to tape the surgery and watch it over and over again until I'm totally desensitized by it and being cut doesn't bother me. I don't mind them being inside my body, it's getting past the skin that gets to me. (I am *probably* not helping your feelings out much by going on about this) I've looked at websites with tons of pics and stories about what it was like and journals that explained feelings about it day to day from beginning to end. I've greatly appreciated those. Hopefully watching the procedure will help. (You'd think a trained medical professional wouldn't be so scared of a little thing like this) Anyway, I'd like it if you would keep me posted on your progress, if you don't mind my nosiness. It will be a good year before my insurance will even consider it, I think. They want a "paper-trail". So that means going and getting massages and then coming back and saying that didn't work, then getting a better bra, and saying that didn't work, etc etc etc until they are satisfied that I really need the procedure. (HMOs suck) Well anyway, thanks a lot for everything!
