DAY 1 POST SURGERY

Good Morning.


After a long and much needed sleep, I awoke this morning feeling pretty good. Although the doc sent me home with 2 Percocet I found that Tylenol Extra Strength is just fine for me. I don't want to overdo the drugs. Interestingly I discovered that there were only 2 incisions in total, one for each breast and just around the nipple. The implants must have been removed and replaced through the nipple. It hurts to think about it so I won't. But I am pleasantly surprised that the surgery was minimally invasive.

I am eating well, back to my normal oats, berries and egg whites and feeling great. A wee bit tired but otherwise not bad. I do have an incredible thirst however and I have no idea what that is about. Anybody out there know? I thought it might be related to the anesthetic.

As for the sports bra, I think that is just temporary. At least for a week there are to be no regular bras. So I am wearing the LuLuLemon Y Bra which is comfortable but definitely not uplifting. Who cares? I will just do it and let the Parisians see me with unsupported breasts right?

I am heading off to the office now.
Stay tuned.
Tosca

Hi Tosca!
I LOVE your books! They have changed my life!
Why so thirsty after surgery? I'm an ICU nurse and I suspect it is because your mouth would have been partially open for several hours with the endotracheal tube. My intubated patients are always complaining of a dry mouth. Drink up on the water and suck on some ice!
Best wishes in your recovery!

Tosca,
Happy recovery and have a wonderful trip! I think you will really enjoy your new size! Running will feel awesome. Smaller is better and more natural ( at least I think!)

Glad to hear that you are doing a-ok. I think you are very brave to reduce your size. Most women want bigger, when a normal size seems perfect.

Speedy healing to you,
Monica.

Reading your story is liberating. It seems that everywhere I look, there are knockers staring me down with glee!
Not wanting to lose feeling in my girls, I have not had the courage to augment them.
As I adapt to my disappearing breasts, I hope to gain body confidence so I can leave well alone.
Spin cycling, Zumba and running is truly made easier with lighter,little boobies.
Thank you for your courage and openness here, for all eyes to see.
