Under Construction

Okay friends, I had a diep flap procedure done about a week ago.   If you have no idea what that is click the link.  In a nutshell, the surgeon cuts out a chunk of my stomach and uses it to make two breasts, then cinches up my stomach, slaps in some drains, and takes a lunch break. Easy peasy! (It was like a 6 ½ hour surgery)


I’m sorry I have no videos of hilarious rants while drugged up, apparently, I stay fairly coherent until I’m fully under.  I am not going to lie after fasting the night prior, when I was informed after my surgery that I couldn’t have any real food, I totally cried.

Once again, my mom spent Mother’s Day caring for her grown child.  Y’all I am so lucky to have her. She swooped in and took care of everything.  Poor Yuri, I won’t be able to lift her for at least 6 weeks, so she is a little peeved with me.  I thankfully got to go home from the hospital on Mother’s Day, and could enjoy sharing the holiday with my family.

With new lady lumps on my chest and a hip to hip suture, moving and walking are… interesting.  I can’t lie completely flat or stand straight up so I look a little like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.  After a few days of walking hunched over my back muscles were screaming for sanctuary.  I’ve got four drains hanging from me, drains are the worst. The. Worst. I am healing fine as far as I can tell.  I am already stir crazy and it is hard to be limited in my movements.

I can’t really get the full picture, since there is still swelling and lots of bandages.  Overall, I am pleased, I didn’t have a serious pooch so they’re probably the smallest they’ve ever been.  It’s strange that even after having breasts for half my life, it seems so odd to have them now.   I will have a follow up on Tuesday to see how everything is going and hopefully be cleared to do a little more.

P.S. Check out the new “Shop” tab.

(There are no before and after pictures, sorry to disappoint. I can’t have all my business out there on the internets.)
