    In Canada our hospital system would demand that you lose a substantial amount of weight. Your weight is the result of how much and what you are eating. When you are overweight your body is storing fat soluble vitamins and minerals which creates a big imbalance. And people expect doctors to be able to deal with this. Overweight people are not popular with anesthatists. When a friend of mine had this done, the news flew around a small town and all the fellows nearly developed whip lash checking her out as they drove by. For a short while her boobs were bigger because of post op swelling but she was glad it was done. She couldn't go out in a boat and this is big fishing country.

    In the US some insurance companies require weight loss others do not. I was much smaller when I had my reduction and have gained some weight since due to my health issues but no regrets on my breast reduction

    I go talk to the Surgeon tomorrow. I'll let every one now how it went if you want.

    Well, appt went good, we decided to wait, because we are moving to SC, and we don't have the money right now(haven't met my deductible.) So he is going to refer us to a surgeon in SC, and I will continue to work on my weight loss, and my physical therapy to help my back muscles.

    Good for you, if you can work on both weight loss and physical fitness you will find the the operation and the recovery, if you still want to do it, will be so much easier on you.

    Good decision.

    Hopefully if I can make my back stronger there will be less pain. I've wanted a breast reduction since I was 15, so I don't see myself changing my mind any thing soon lol

    Having surgery is an incredibly personal decision; it's something that only you can decide is right for you or not. I've had 5 surgeries in as many years, and I eventually quit telling people I was having surgery. My last surgery was a "two-week vacation" so that I didn't have to take sick leave and tell anyone what was going on.

    In addition to having had multiple surgeries, I've lost a lot of weight - more than 100 pounds. Losing weight has been the best thing I've ever done for myself, for so for many reasons. When I was heavier (and I'm no skinny girl now - I'm a solid size 12 and I can't wear button-down shirts), my back, knees, ankles, and feet always hurt. There were days when the back pain alone made it physically impossible to get out of the bed. No one needed to tell me that losing weight would make me feel better (and make the boobs a little smaller)...but I can't express just how much better I feel in every aspect now. Living with chronic pain is no way to live. You are young enough to take action now so that you don't have to spend an entire lifetime dealing with the ill-effects of being overweight.

    Personally, I think physical therapy is great first step towards getting well. And I agree that water exercise is a great place to start. I'm sure your PT will be able to recommend things you can do to become more active without aggravating your back and other issues.

    And yes, invest in a great sports bra. I nearly gave up running and riding because it hurt the twin peaks. I've spent a small fortune on finding what works best for me, but it's been worth it. I can now ride/run/skip/dance in comfort! I always wash them on the hand-wash cycle, with gentle detergent, and I never, ever use fabric softener on them, nor do I put them in the dryer.

    Best of luck to you!
