It’s now been 3 months since I had my breast reduction surgery and I wanted to give you a quick update on how I’m recovering. My breasts now feel pretty normal, for quite some time I could tell that there was healing going on inside, it’s only now when they get squashed that I feel […]

medium_9396280047

For a long time (well most of my life) I never ran. Well I couldn’t run without pain or holding my breasts and that’s exhausting, not being able to move your arms in the regular running pattern makes you tired way more quickly.  After 30 years of searching, I finally found a sports bra that […]

So I’m 12 days post operative and yesterday afternoon I saw my plastic surgeon for my first post operative appointment. I’m now back in a wire-free bra.

1 week post breast reduction

Tomorrow I reach my 1 week milestone and next Monday I’m off to the hospital to see my plastic surgeon (Yvonne Chow – she did a brilliant job as far as I can tell so far and one of the nurses said that they were the best breasts she’d seen!) to have some dressings removed […]

I’m writing this sitting in my hospital bed, the night after my breast reduction surgery. I’m still mentally coming to terms with what I’ve done, after a lifetime of overly large breasts and in many ways my breasts have defined part of who I am (just as I was a brunette and am now a […]
