Follow-up Finally

Today I met with the plastic surgeon and it was decided that I need another surgery to move the implant that isn't in the right place. This will be an outpatient procedure and recovery on this should be easier, but I will still have the 4-6 week restriction on heavy lifting.
We also discussed my memory loss and there are two theories. One is that I am sleep deprived, which is very likely. Having the surgery and the drugs after changed my sleep pattern and I may not be back to a normal sleep pattern. The other is that I may be low on iron and it is taking everything I've got just to make it through the day. If that's the case then I need to see my family doctor to get blood work done.
I'm kinda down about this because I was hoping he could just push the implant where it needed to be, you know, adjust it like a chiropractor. I was also thinking that if I had to go under anesthesia again that I would just have him take them out, but it's not that simple. It's actually a big surgery and there would be no turning back because of the excess skin that he would remove. I did find it funny that as soon as I took my gown off the doctor mentioned that he wasn't happy with one side and we have to go bigger. The nurse then reminded him that I wanted to go smaller. These things aren't going to change with my weight fluctuating and I'd like them to look normal after I lose weight. I'm going to try to sleep now, while David puts the boys to bed.


  1. I'm sorry, sweetie. That is disappointing.

  2. Oh honey, I'm sorry it was such a fruitless visit. And even sorrier you have go back in. Blech. Praying for happiness.
