I had the surgery & yes, not even allowed to drive for 2 weeks. I had to wait for a year to have the surgery, had to see a few different doctors,but the insurance did pay for it & I'm happy w/the results. I think most horse riders would opt to go as small as possibe, & right after I thought-Yay! So tiny, but after healing I'm back to where I was before the growth surge I had that brought on the need for surgery. I was warned that this is a surgery that cannot be repeated. Therefore I had to lose weight & keep it off for a year before they would do it.

For me, it was a 4 hour surgery, done as an out-patient, & I still cannot believe how many nurses there wanted what I was getting rid of.

Nothing like being slapped in the face by your own tit while riding. I used to wear 2 bras, one normal, and a sports bra, and I still bounce every where! I hated riding around guys, so embarrassing.
Omg yes! I always have to wear two bras and they end up slicing into my shoulders. You know it's bad when the trail guide asks you about it at the end of the ride lmao.

I would for sure have another MRI done, if the last one you had was that many years ago, something could have easily been missed and be more evident now. I'm not saying DON'T have the surgery if you really want it, but I don't think it's going to be the magical cure you seem to think it will be. And if it doesn't help your back at all, and the main reason you are doing it is for pain relief, then you may well be out thousands of dollars with no benefit.
I don't expect it to cure all, and if it doesn't help my back, I will go for an MRI, BUT not matter what I want rid of these monsters. I'm the biggest out of every one I know, and I'm tired of the looks, and I'm tired of peek-a-boo buttons on my shirts.

myhorsesonador, my cousin's wife had such big breast she cried and cried over the pain they caused her. She had to have custom bras made and her back hurt. You are right... it may not be a cure all but I bet you will have no regrets! Best of luck to you!!!

Just to throw in something I didn't see totally mentioned...

The weight loss could result in saggier boobs than you would like, but it could also result in smaller boobs than you would like.

The best riding bra is a body protector, LOL. I wear a regular, a sports bra and a riding vest. The girls are locked down and safe and I can't give myself a black eye.

Nope, it was mentioned. On the first page, and you are right that could be a big issue.

You have the chance to pretty much "customize" your girls - may as well try to get as close to your notion of 'perfect' as you can, right?

I think do whatever you need to do to make yourself comfortable to exercise and revisit surgery later. Wind ace bandages around yourself or wear a riding vest or whatever you need to do.

I haven't been around a horse in a year, so no problems there. I will try riding again as soon as possible though. I didn't for so long, because every doctor was telling me that there is some thing wrong with my spine and kept giving me meds or chiros just kept trying to adjust me. 2 times a week for over 6 months and it never got better. Deap tissue message, yeah that HURT!

I still highly reccomend a far better fitting bra. The bravissimo website I linked earlier has a good fitting guide. I personaly wouldnt have you pegged as a 44 back size. In theory (and in practice) I find that the band around your back should be uncomfortably tight to start with, you do get used to the feeling.

As someone said a BP is an excellent sports bra, but I've found a pretty lacey every day bra in the correct size means I can do most riding without a sports bra (sitting trot needs a sports bra though).

Loosing wieght will help because it will take the strain off your joints. Swimming is very good for this. It also makes the risks of a GA less.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
