I hate my breast reduction

Common Questions and Answers about I hate my breast reduction


Avatar n tn Are there any dr willing to do pro bono work? I hate my breast and would cut them off if I could. I also have had 2 c sections and a hysterectomy, I have lots of scar tissue in my lower ab that has caused adhesions and pull at my stomach when I try to exercise. I feel like i am getting a charlie horse in my abs when i lay down at times or even sometimes when I bend over. Help I can not afford to have these surgery and so need them both.
Avatar n tn This time I had to have reduction, and was suggested by my neurosurgeon and my orthopedic surgeon. I have arthritis issues and a bad back and already one shoulder surgery. I told all of this to my new plastic surgeon, and relayed what happened in 1985. I was firm that I wanted only size "B", nothing larger as I know I always gain in my breasts, and do not lose weight there.
Avatar n tn all of you who are wanting a breast reduction take a second look at pollyB's advice She knows what she's talking about...especially the part about checking out the surgeon....
Avatar n tn My best friend got breast reduction surgery yesterday, and she is always in a lot of pain. She's on a few rather strong oral narcotics, but she still can't really move without being in pain. She can't sit up on her own, or sleep on her sides without causing pain to the breast area. If it helps, she went from an H cup to a B or C cup, which is a rather big change. She can't sleep at all, so she has a large area under her eyes that is dark and baggy from lack of sleep.
Avatar n tn I had necrosis from them in my throat. I have found many breast reductions patienst as well as tummy tucks. Drs and Patients watch out for this. The manufacturer has already settled o n a class action lawsuit regarding another similar suture called Vycril (sp?)suture.g due to pesticides in the fibers that the sutures were made from. Could easily happen again. Just a thought for you to look into.
Avatar n tn My husband of 28 yrs has been messed up for the past 12 yrs since I had my breast reduction... It has ruined my marriage. I had neck and shoulder pain and my husband WAS supportive about the surgery. We discussed it, watched a video of the surgery together etc. what came after was so unexpected . My husband cried for months, tried antidepressant mess and we did grow apart. I acknowledged his feeling,tried to reassure that surgery takes time to heal and settle down.
Avatar n tn Im so so glad I found this website aswhile! I had a breast reduction in 2007 and I had a pulled muscle on the top of my left breast and I still have pain from it. But ever since the pulled muscle I now have pain in my lower left breast and I dont think it has anything to do with my pulled muscle.My husband keeps telling me its muscle tissue from my breast reduction and now that I have read all of the post on here Im starting to think thats what it is.
Avatar m tn I had to have breast reduction at age 22 because no matter how much weight I lost,my breast size did not decrease.I had back aches,head aches, and my bra straps dug into my shoulders.I went to see my regular doc and he referred me to a plastic surgeon.Since my breasts were causing me health problems my insurance did pay for almost all of the reduction surgery.It was the best decision I ever made.If you decide to go this route, be sure the doctor is BOARD CERTIFIED as a plastic surgeon.
Avatar f tn I had a BR in Dec 2009. My right breast is perfect. But my left experienced severe necrosis and I lost the entire nipple & areola. I had to look at a golf ball size hole, straight into my breast, for months before it grew and closed, finally allowing reconstruction that consisted of a tattoo for my nipple. It's quite small compared to the properly healed right breast. I did everything right. I'm so depressed still, years later. I hate looking at my chest.
Avatar f tn It brings tears to my eyes and they're going to sag after my son is done breast feeding and my nipples are the size of my palms. Idk what to do I honestly just hate them so much.
Avatar n tn I am so happy i came across this web site, I had my breast done about a month and a half ago from 36A to a 36C and i am very unhappy. I explained to my surgeon that i wanted my breast big and sexy, all i got was averge. It makes me even more upset when girls on the street my same hight and weight had breast the same size or sometimes bigger than mine and i spent all this money. I am thinking about getting them done again but my finance is not there and may not be there for another few years.
Avatar f tn In May 29,2009 i had a breast reduction but now i feel hard things underneath my right breast. I had an untralsound done in April 2011 and they said it was just scar tissue but it's still there how long does it stay there? Im very scared becuz i hate the way it feels.
Avatar f tn I hate posting a question such as this, but I have doubts about a recent claim of breast cancer & I'm hoping to get more info. My mom died from breast cancer at 51, my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, & a very close friend is a survivor so this has really struck a nerve for me. I'm skeptical bc this person has motive to make a false claim & I've never known anyone with breast cancer to be able to get away with such little (& frankly benign) treatment.
Avatar f tn I am trying to get pregnant (I am 30) and I feel my armpit getting sore before my body would even recognize I had conceived. Has anyone had this hormonal pain, but still conceived? Could it mean I am pregnant and my period will NOT be arriving? Please help me!!
Avatar f tn Early January I discovered a lump in my left breast just above the nipple. I just had a routine mammogram done just 6 months before. My doctor immediately sent me for another mammogram and ultrasound. The results came in a few days later saying it was an foreign metal object imbedded in my breast and that it had been there a long time and has become calcified. There was no recommendation for removal but I didn't like having the lump so I opted to have it removed.
Avatar f tn After having myself had a total mastectomy with axially lymph node dissection, and after having spoken to others who had breast reduction surgery, I think it is safe to safe that the procedure is relatively unpainful and much easier than you would ever expect. I really do not blame you for being upset. my breasts wer/are not nearly as big and they were still uncomfortably big. no way would I have reconstruction done. it sounds absolutely horrible to me.
Avatar n tn Also, there's the lack of feeling in the abdominal area, which makes it rather hard to navigate a room full of furniture or people. All in all, I would never do it again. I was supposed to return for a breast reduction on the opposite side, but couldn't bring myself to undergo another surgery.
Avatar f tn she is sending me to have a CT done on monday. i don't have any family history of breast cancer, but my mom died of lung cancer 3 years ago - they only found it because the tumor was pressing on a nerve and it was painful. i am scared and nervous that with all of the "cysts" they have found in the last 7 years that this may be something bad. has anyone else experienced chronic pain and or burning for an extended period of time combinded with multiple cysts?
Avatar n tn I went to my primary care doctor who said he didn't think it was heartburn but said maybe I needed a breast reduction because my breast could be putting too much strain on my chest muscles. (Yeah, whatever, my breast are large but not that large!!) Today, I was raking my backyard and it started that was at 11 am and I'm just now up and about at 5pm. My doctor prescribed me a mild muscle relaxer last time and I'm glad I had some left.
282955 tn?1394734551 tea_berries: If you do decide to nurse make sure to start within the first half hour after your baby is born. The only thing that babies are born knowing how to do is suck, and doing this will help her latch on and know where the food is coming from. Watch out, your nipples are going to be really sore for like a week because they have to become caloused. Not like they will become rough or anything, they just have to get used to someone sucking on them for long periods of time.
Avatar n tn guys be glad you aren't really big. When I was 18 I had to have breast reduction because I was a DDD! I wasnt heavy at all. I was probably 130 pounds if that. That surgery was so painful. Gotta say though did a good job as I am a full C now and perky still at 29. I guess I just wanted you to know the other side, having big breasts is just as bad sometimes as having smaller ones. Ever heard of sagging.
1408746 tn?1283678948 My doctor then proceeded to give me the Pelvic Congestion Diagnosis and sent me away telling me to keep trying. I was so very unsatisfied, so I did my own research. I found Nutcracker Syndrome and was convinced that I had it. You see, since the renal vein is being compressed, not enough blood flows through it to your heart, so the body compensates by sending the blood downward through the pelvic creating the veriscosities and causing chronic to mild pain.
Avatar n tn I was so embarressed in high school i did everything from were 3 diferent bras at time to make my boobs look flat to actually duck tapping my boobs! Im sick of my boobs and i can't wait till one day when i can get a breast reduction . Trust me having bigger boobs not all that great. Not to mention the back problems.
Avatar n tn I dont recall it happening but i hate it. I am only 15 and i have got series with my boyfriend. We have only done oral but im scared for him to touch me or anything. Because most teenage boys watch porn what if he expects me to be perfect pink and small. Im really nervous. What if rumours spread. Its easy for men to say they dont mind, but a 16 year old has a different view. someone please help!!
948349 tn?1294383837 In particular, I haven't suffered much on my face, only while I was a teen, but always had acne on my back. Not only that but my blackheads on my nose aren't there anymore! I even had blackheads on my shoulders. Sometimes on my back... always had many pimples on my back... tried so many things... using clean towels, clean bed sheets, wearing 2 shirts a day, Differin prescription acne cream, Proactiv.
1222635 tn?1366399886 if you think im being selfish or immature, please refrain from telling me. this journal is purely to vent. this is the part about marriage i HATE. i feel so controlled. i am not used to having to get permission from someone before i do something i want to do for MY body with MY money. it is something that is going to take a lot of getting used to. i had a baby, i birthed his kid. his body didn't suffer for it, so of course he doesn't care. but i care. i want to be able to treat myself.
Avatar f tn As with GM I have been on steroid for about 4months,and I hate the side effects. My face,my belly and my feet swell up like nobody's business. I have trouble sleeping, and my thyroid prob juz got worse, I have tremors and irregular heartbeats.And its not doing anythg to the lump at all. Except that it doesnt hurt. But the routine Im on now means I have to be on steroid for 3 weeks then stop for a week.
Avatar f tn It's possible that my breasts are too heavy.. I wear a 36 H cup. I'm sure others would love this size, but I really hate it. I get weird looks because I'm only 5'0, and they're too big compared to my body. I've even had people come up and ask where I got my "breast implants done", telling me they looked bad compared to my body, and then not believe me when I tell them I've not had any.
