Exchange Rate?!

I am due to have the exchange surgery on April 27th early in the morning.  Not so much a perky morning person, but hopefully I'll arise from the anesthesia being a perky breast person!  I am pretty excited to see how my new boobies will look and feel.  I am not really nervous about this surgery because everyone says that it should be a walk in the park.  Let's hope so because I fell head first into the swamp after the mastectomies.  Sorta looking forward to roaming the streets of Seattle in my pain killer induced high.  Haha, I'd probably fit in better in that crazy city anyhow. 

For those of you that aren't up to speed, my expanders are to be removed and replaced with silicone speed bumps!  I don't exactly know the size as of yet, (was hoping for Heidi Montag profile, haha) but will be able to play around with a few implants before the surgery at the pre-op appointment.  Of course, they arent' going to be big and exciting as basketballs, but thanks to a great friend, (insert shout out to Anna) I am looking forward to having smaller tits.  I spend hours trying on all the great things that I couldn't wear with my gigantic, pre operation boobs, well atleast without looking like you owe me some money for the show!  I have found strapless shirts, backless shirts, low cut V-necks and halter tops!  I am so excited to be able to rock my itty bitty titties in hot clothes.  Nothing really exciting besides that!  I am a bit bummed that most of my tops and dresses don't fit me anymore though... some big busted beauty will totally score at the Salvation Army and I guess I get to buy some new clothes. 

I am looking forward to having the expanders removed even though I have grown quite fond of them recently.  I truly love the way they grate across my ribs and stretch my skin.  Can't sense the sarcasm?  I guess I better focus on something more productive like packing for my trip, but I'll let y'all know how the surgery goes soon!

Wow! I get my first fill tomorrow 4/20 and I am so scared... was told it would be painful? I haven't seen anyone yet that has stated it was painful. I am going on my 3rd week out of surgery my incisions have healed up great :) I am doing good I do not like the no feeling in the chest. I have to get a ct scan and bone scan May 4th to make sure I dont have any cancer anywhere else I survived breast cancer let's hope I can get through this as well.
