Breast Reduction surgery was one of the best things my mum ever did.

Surgeons found an agressive form of breast cancer through it. Even though she checked herself regularly, the cancer was too small to be felt. Had she not had the reduction, she would have had months to live.

I am incredibly grateful she chose to have a reduction. It gave me 4 extra years with her before the cancer finally beat her.

I feel for you! I have a fairly large bust myself and it sometimes makes riding a PITA.

My cousin, bless her heart, could give Dolly Parton a run for her money and hers are natural. She is in constant back pain, has a bad back, bad knees, bad neck that has been operated on and she needs back surgery. The insurance won't pay for a breast reduction and this gal SERIOUSLY needs it. If I won the lottery I would pay for her to have it myself.

Having said that, I am just now recovering from major back surgery - surgery is never too much fun and this has been the pits. The anesthesiologist didn't seem too concerned about my weight and I certainly am not a light weight. I met with one of the anesthesiologist's prior to surgery and she asked me what I did - I said I ride horses and bake cakes. I am on my feet alot - but I also sit on my butt alot. Ride my horse on a regular basis for miles, I do his farrier work myself.

She said good girl....sounds like you are active so no worries for her on surgery day. I personally hate anesthetics. They always make me sick as a dog but I haven't ever had trouble waking up from it!

OP I hope you get the relief you are looking for soon and get back to riding!

Ok, guess I should update this.

I have not had the surgery yet, since my Mom wanted to wait till we moved (she is not the one in pain, so of course we needed to wait 3-4 months.....) Well, we are finally moved, and will have to start the hunt for a Dr. This week that will actually do it.

I have not been on here since this post, and probably wont be back unless to update this. Even after this surgery it is very unlikely that I will ever be able to ride again, and it's to hard to me to see every one so happy, while I lay in my chair hardly mobile.

Ok, last post was a lie, I started getting notifications, and I couldn't leave.

For any one that cares, I am going to the DR Tuesday to find out what the plan is.

Tomorrow is the day I find out more!

Today I went to the DR about my knee, he thinks it is either damage UNDER my knee cap, or the muscles are not holding my knee cap like they should. I have some stretches I have to do 2x's a day, and I go back in 6 weeks.

I hope you hear good news! My friend had a breast reduction surgery three years ago and is very happy with it,feels better. She had to lose some weight first, and follow a treatment and exercise plan.

Ok I'll tell more when I get home, but the dr is great! I didn't even need to ask questions, he just laid it all out, even talked about things I didn't even think of!

Ok, just got home! I am sooooo happy right now, I haven't felt this great in years. I've had back pain for 8 years, it is hard to believe it has been that long, but soon enough it will all be gone.

I love the Surgeon He really knows his stuff, and I feel much more comfortable with him than I did the Surgeon in FL. He drew all the lines and talked about the method he was doing to use due to my size and shape, He talked about what he was going to remove, and where every thing was going to end up. He is a parent, so he knew just how to talk to my Mom and help her relax and help her understand what to expect. He said that if insurance doesn't cover it, he drops the price so low that it would be under the deductible any way!

Beast part about him, is that he used to have Icelandics. I saw behind the office, that there is a huge (I thought it was a log house) Barn. Turns out that his daughter used to have a therapeutic riding program with 14 ponies, but at 31 she got burnt out. She did it all her self, that is pretty amazing.

It was really refreshing to see some one that actually WANTS me to be better. He even encouraged me to stay away from pain pills.

I am very much looking forward to this, and have no doubt in my mind that this is the right thing for me to do.

Thank you :)

I had to take a shower, so all the lines came off, so now I'm pouting. I liked being able to see what was going to happen.
