Hi Everyone! I’m back! Thanks to the HOTY for posting yesterday…and for taking such good care of me – AGAIN.
Wowsy. Bowsy. Am I ever glad to be home and DONE with surgery! Major Silver Lining of the week!
Thank you all so very much for thoughts, support…& your implant input! I am deeply appreciative. My final choice was to go with saline implants. At the end of the day, I chose saline implants because they are as safe as any implant can be. The saline which is put into a saline implant literally comes from an I.V. (intravenous) bag. This is the same fluid that can be/is injected into veins. In other words, if there is a leak, my body would safely absorb the fluid.
While I know that the silicone gel placed into a gel implant might be harmless (& that people love them!), I did not feel as though I wanted to voluntarily allow my tissues to be exposed to this unnatural substance. The other thing is that once silicone gel leaks into the body, there is no operation that can remove it. Right now, at this point in my life, I am all about Safety First.
My doctor said that in the event that I really don’t like the saline implants, that it is easy to change them out for silicone gel implants (Silver Lining).
For whatever reason, I’m dealing with some gnarly pain issues again. Despite large quantities of pain medicine, I’m still feeling rotten. With pain comes constipation, though I’m also taking large quantities of Colace, Senekot and Miralax (all bowel movers and softeners). I’m hoping that with time (even in the next day or so) that the pain & plumbing issues will settle down. Fingers and toes are crossed.
I will go back to see my plastic surgeon on Friday for the unveiling (I am bound like a mummy right now). Until then, I’ll be resting and healing.
Thank you all, again & again & again for all of your love and support!
A very healing sunset!
