Floaty boob needs to go bye-bye

Now that we're reaching capacity on my expander, it's causing me discomfort that I can't WAIT to be done with. The skin isn't the issue, it's UNDER the expander that hurts. I don't know if the textured surface on the back of it rubs against something inside of me, or if it is just large enough now that it irritates the muscles. All I know is that right underneath it is sore.

And they've got about 120 ccs to go. Maybe I can con them into just going ahead and doing it in one fell swoop. I mean, they were doing 120 ccs at a time until the doctor got worried about the veins showing too much. Heck, I'm practically translucent. You could ALWAYS see those.

Sleeping isn't the greatest in the world, either. It makes the expander move around, which doesn't feel real good.

I don't regret anything I've done (although I really did have passing moments because of the complications. Seriously), but I am just ready for it to be OVER.

And although none of you really need or want to know this, I think I've decided that for now, I'm just going to have a tattoo artist at my surgeon's office tattoo nipples on me. A 3D look tattoo, instead of the real thing. If at some point in my life I feel the pressing need to get 'real' nipples rebuilt in another surgery, I can get that done, but for now...after this last surgery I am DONE. I don't want any more.
