I went to see my Plastic Surgeon today. I had all of my stitches removed (except the dissolvable ones in my tummy incision). My belly button no longer looks like a spider is living in it LOL! The breast stitches were a litttttle tender coming out, but hey at least I have nipple sensation. I never had any before the reduction. My PS is thrilled with how I'm healing, everything looks great, but she is still strict about no activity for 4 more weeks. Just take it easy she said. I also found out that I had 800 grams of skin removed from my tummy and 187 from my breasts. What a difference 2.1 lbs worth of skin removal makes. She said that I can take 2 X 30 min breaks from wearing my compression garments each day. PHEW! I can't wait to start that! I will be wearing them for 4 more weeks both day and night.

Hi, I've also been lurking for a while:) I'd also like to say thanks so much for sharing, my friend had a similar surgery but wouldn't talk about it (was supposed to be secret), so you're filling in a lot of the gaps!
