Hi to all - had my first fill today - not too much - as my PS wants to go slow. But --------It is so nice to see that little swelling where it was concave before Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
Next one won't be until July 26th - he's going on holidays - but he seems to think everything will go really fast after that.
That's it for now - will be in touch after the next one.
Love to all who have been such a support to me.

I just read up and saw that you are going to Dr Sean Rice, he recently joined the board and Ive talked to him through email....he seems like a really nice guy. Are you having one or 2 implants?

Hi to Admin -
I can't say enough about Dr. Rice - he is so personable & very caring.Don't know how many fills I will have - I don't want to be that big - maybe a full B cup - but I will leave it up to Dr. Rice.
Yes Two implants - I am having the other side done with a implant at the end -
Hoping all of this can be completed by Sept.

Hey Marilyn, I'm sorry to say, I have forgotten which site it was that I got the floating hearts from. They had lots of cool moving pics, and I just copied and pasted it into my photobucket.com and then into my siggy here. Maybe some of the other girls know of some sites to get pics like that. If i figure it out, I will let you know. Wink

Marilyn, I'm so thrilled for you AGAIN! I'm trying to book an appt. with Dr. Rice. I hope his office can get me in before 2006!

Hee Hee - I just thought of an analogy for you....

......in the spring you were shaped for a seed to be planted,
......in the summer you've grown into a rosebud
......soon you will be in full blossom

and a beautiful one at that! Very Happy Very Happy

Oh, okay. I put mine in my signature. To do that, add your emoticon or pic into a web album, like www.photobucket.com or www.villagephotos.com (both are free photo hosting sites). Copy the URL of that image once saved.

Then go into your Canadaba profile (click on the profile link at the top of the screen) and scroll down to the signature section.

Paste the URL into the signature text box. Put [img] at the beginning, and [/img] at the end, leaving NO spaces. (Because the URLs are long, they often get broken up between two lines, so don't worry about it not all being on one line).

You can also fill in any info about yourself you want to share with us. Whatever you put in your signature gets posted with EVERY message you post.

Then go down to the bottom of the screen, and click on Submit. Then check a message of yours in a thread to see if it worked. Wink

I know, it's hard to remember all at once, so you can either print it out if that's an available option to you, or if you go to the FILE menu of your browser, and select NEW and then WINDOW, you will get two open windows of the same page. On one you can leave this thread open with the instructions, and on the other, follow them. Just flip back and forth between them by using the bar at the bottom of your screen (in about the middle area, every window you have open will have a rectangle button associated with it, and you can switch between them by clicking just one time on any given one). It's hard to explain and it's late at night, so I hope that made sense to you. Laughing Wink

Hi Terri - How are you doing - hope you had a good rest at the cottage.
& how do the new boobs feel??? - I can't remember how many fills you had - or how many I will have -
Anyway - this experience has been great so far - hoping the rest will go as smoothly. As you said "It was a piece of cake" -
Take care & keep posting & I will post after my next fill which won't be till the 26th July.
Hugs,
Marilyn Smile Smile

Hey Marilyn! Glad to hear you are doing so well. I am very happy with the result. The surgeon made a point of telling me that making everything symmetrical would be difficult because of course I have no breast on one side and a breast on the other and also even with breast augmentation symmetry is apparently difficult as well. Anyway, the symmetry is way better than I expected --they are pretty close and trust me I'm looking harder at them then I assume most people would Wink I am also enjoying looking more curvy in clothes and hope to go shopping very soon for some new stuff. The only problem I'm having is a very sensitive nipple--I have to cover it when I shower and if I'm not wearing a bra just the chafing against the fabric drives me nuts! But I understand it isn't unusual so we'll just have to wait until it gets better. Also, still having trouble lying on my side and I do get the occasional schnapping pain Sad But I'm sure its only cuz I'm healing up inside.

Hi again Terri - I am so happy that you are pleased with the outcome.
No doubt I will have the same problem - having no boob on one side.
But it must feel so wonderful - to have a curvy shape -
Did they do the nipple at the same time??? - I was under the impression the nipple procedure happened after everything settled down. I will check with my PS - next time I'm there.
Yes - I think it would take some time laying on one's side - without feeling a bit strange - after all - there is something there (on both sides) where there was nothing before (In my case the one doesn't have that much to begin with Very Happy ) but hoping all will be symmetrical in the end - after everything settles down.
Keep happy & I am so anxious to get on with the next fills & the final operation.Take care & drop me a line when you are able.
Hugs,
Marilyn Smile Smile
