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.

Who is it? Tell her to come on over and friend me. I can certainly talk her through the pros and cons of it, and let her know what the experience was like.

Actually, I wondered about your nippples! I must be just one of your pervy friends. :)

I think you have definitely been through enough - you really deserve a break.

You can see my veins, too. You could see them when I first got boobs at the ripe age of 11. Heck, you can see them pretty much anywhere on my body.

If you think you've had enough, then I agree. I don't quite know how to describe the admiration I have for you for all you've gone through. You've got a hell of a lot of grit.

(I *was* curious about the nipples... count me in with the other pervs.)
