Ok ladies, next Thursday I am going to be getting a breast reduction and I'm a little nervous idk what to to expect... so I was wondering if you could tell me what to expect with pain and recovery.. how did you get away with not lifting your children for the amount of time? Do you regret getting it? And any thing else you want to tell me lol
A little about what I have going on is I am 5' 2" and I weigh around 160 I am a 36 DDD maybe even bigger I constantly have back and shoulder pains I get tingling in my upper back almost neck and headaches like crazy
Thanks in advance for responses

No I have not had a breast reduction but I have thought about it. I take care of a girl who had one and they did a horrible job. Her boobs were huge. It was also state insurance that she had so I don't know if that has any factor in it. All I know is I have seen her boobs and they are awful looking. She is only 24 years old.

I had a breast reduction when I was 18. I was abt 5ft and I wore a 34FF. Honestly, IMO the worst part of it was the anticipation waiting for it. My recovery wasn't that painful at all. I will say this, it took me years before I could really tell a dramatic difference. Now I'm in a 40D. It took me a long time before my boobs stuck to one size.

I got a reduction and a lift (no implants) after having my one and only child. He was about 18 months old. It was uncomfortable, but not painful- please, after child birth- it was a piece of cake!

I healed quickly. My husband took a week off work to help out. My parents live close by, which helped. I was able to lift my son very soon after surgery no problem. 

Best thing I ever did. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is sick and tired of wearing a DDD or E cup. I was once a perky, perfect C cup. After pregnancy, I looked like one of those women out of the Nat'l Geographic magazine where their breasts hang down to their belly button lol. I'm now a D. A bit more weight loss might get me down at a C once again.

Insurance did not cover the procedure for me, but it was money well spent

I had it done when I was 21(19 yrs ago).  I took regular tylenol for any pain I had.  It took a while (about a yr) for me to shower without my arms folded acrossed my chest.  Don't regret it for a minute.
