Well the first thing I want to say is that I got my letter from the Radiologist regarding my Mammogram/Ultrasound and......it's NORMAL!! Yea!! So I guess that Vanessa and Band Groupie was right!! Since they switched to the new/better equipment, they wanted to make sure they got good digital pics to compare with the past Mammograms, and for future reference regarding any changes!!
BUT!! I was looking in the mirror the other day when I was getting ready to take my shower, and....I couldn't believe that the girls had completely dropped!! Yikes! I see these pictures, usually comic style, of women whose boobs have lost all muscle tone holding them up, so they just sort of hang loose, like a flat pancake against their abdomen!
Who knows, maybe all the Mammograms I have had through the last 36 yrs, have helped to lose the muscle tone. I am sure that the Mammograms didn't help since they flatten your boobs out like pancakes for the images!! I used to dream of losing enough weight so that I lost a good portion of my chest size. Then once my weight was lost, having Surgery to further reduce the breast size to a 36B or 36C, AND a breast lift so that they didn't lay flat anymore!!!
Is this asking too much?
Oh well, I know that this is a fact of life, especially if you are big breasted AND overweight! It's just that some women have enough money to be able to afford the necessary Surgery to correct this problem, and most of us don't! Too bad that Insurance doesn't cover this. But unfortunately, they consider this elective Surgery and not Medically necessary.
So ends this post. Sorry for being Debi downer today. Those of us who are older and bigger breasted, understand what I am experiencing. For those of you younger women, it's good that you are losing the extra weight now. Hopefully, it will prevent you from having to go through this later on!! So, till next time.
Aloha My Friends :)
