I don't know if many people who read my blog know this, but I have fake boobs. I don't hide the fact that they're fake; I'll tell anyone and I enjoy helping others who are thinking about doing the same thing. I had them done when I was 19 (back in February 2004) and developed a complication only corrected by surgery (I waited until after I had my son to have them re-fixed, which was in February 2006). Well last night my right implant ruptured!!!!
I have saline implants so it's not an emergency situation, but the longer I wait to have them fixed the more that cavity/pocket will close and the more difficult the surgery to remove it will be and the more pain I will be in afterwards. Luckily, today I was already going to my surgeon's office (he's the one that did my nose & chin; he did NOT do my boobs and I would never go back to the doctor that did my boobs). If my boob could break at the perfect time, it did. My surgeon confirmed that yes, it ruptured.
I am having the surgery to fix this within a month or so. We do not have money for this right now, but this is one of those emergency situations that pop up where we can use a low interest or no interest credit card for. This surgery won't be as expensive as my nose & chin, and part of my hospital/anesthesia fees will be covered because my boobs are still under warranty. But still... expect more stuff in my blog sale soon!!
Right now I feel weird... I don't feel feminine and I feel really uneven (of course). I joke that I look like a before & after on one body, lol, but it's kind of true. I'm going to Victoria's Secret today to get chicken cutlets for just the one boob because I can't walk around like this for a month.
When I have them re-done I will have both implants taken out, even though the left one is perfectly fine. I just would rather have two brand new, fresh warranty implants. Not sure how the pain will be afterwards... I know it will hurt but I likely won't have any pain of the skin and muscle stretching. Then again, I was told it wouldn't hurt as bad when I had them done the second time and I thought it hurt worse. Only time will tell!
I guess I'm taking you all on another surgery journey! My nose & chin surgery journey page was moved from the top of my blog page to a page on my website. Click here if you want to check that out (it was last updated a week ago with pics after my surgeon injected some filler on the one side of my chin to even it out).
That's all for now. Just needed to talk about all that.
