They are starting to look like real boobs! Pain is decreasing, swelling in hand has gone down, overall much more happy. Extreme tightness of connective tissue all along left side is getting better. I can lift my arm now!
The scars under my breast, in my armpit (lymph nodes) and along my sides (drainage tubes) are healing and becoming lighter. I will report a better image at a later date. They are actually more visible than this one shows, but much better than I expected them to be.
The “curbs” that once came up so high with the expanders in have now fallen and softened with the permanent implants in place. Thank god!! Note that when you flex your chest muscles, however, there is still a strange little separation at the top you can see in the detail pic above. This will not go away, or so I’m told. Not a big deal and okay with me.
I felt like hell in the photos from Wk 24. See the big bruise on my stomach. That’s from a shot to shut down my ovaries. The shot itself did not cause that, but the shot to make it not hurt did. Done with that one! It hurt much more than the real injection.
