    Question Panniculectomy and Breast Reduction - Anyone??

    Hi - My doctor is recommending I have a panniculectomy (removal of the fatty tissue hanging down from the belly - similar to a tummy tuck but way more extensive) as well as a breast reduction. I had always thought that whenever I finished losing weight I'd probably have to have these procedures anyway, but the problem is that I have been fighting constant rashes and infection under my belly - especially triggered whenever I start an exercise program! I have tried all kinds of creams and powders but nothing is working any more. I now have an ulcer (open sore) the size of a quarter that won't heal - it's been 6 weeks now. This is why my doctor thinks I may need to go ahead and have the removal done now. I wondered if anyone else has had this done that is very large (I'm around 300 lbs.) and if it helped with the back pain, ulcers/rashes, etc., and what it was like? Also, he is saying I should go ahead with a breast reduction to help with the constant headaches I get (VERY severe ones) due to the weight on my neck/shoulders. Has anyone had both these procedures done at the same time?!! It seems extreme - but then if I'm going to be in pain, may as well get it over with...??!!

    Thanks for any input... BTW, I have lost 45 lbs. so far but just have come to a standstill due to not being able to exercise...
