55. fill #7 photos - 5.5 months post-op

i had my last fill this yesterday. can we say OUCH! things look completely freakish now and i don't know whether i should laugh or cry. how about a little bit of both.

i've been taking pain meds around the clock and i am pretty zoned out. hopefully things will settle down in the next few days so i don't need to take them regularly.

i may be waiting for exchange longer than i had hoped. if it ends up conflicting with school, i may have to wait until march (reading week) to schedule surgery. i can't believe i might have to deal with these coconuts for possibly another 6 months.

my can do/can't do is pretty much the same as last time, except that at the moment i can only sleep on my back because it is painful to sleep on my sides. i can really feel that the skin is being stretched to the max.

here are the pics. again, this will not be the final result and i am over-filled 100 cc's from what my final size will be. probably 350 cc's or if possible, 375 cc's implants.

Left Side: 440 cc's
Right side: 460 cc's


  1. Oh, sweetie! It's okay to laugh AND cry! I hope you don't have to keep the expanders for 6 more months, but having been in that boat I can tell you they do get easier to live with. I had one higher than the other, and in the extra time I've had them they have settled in to be in the same place, which made me feel much better. Also, now I can lay on my stomach for a long time without pain, and have no pain sleeping on my sides. It does get better, but I look at these photos and want to give you a hug because I know how uncomfortable you are and I just hate it. You still look beautiful, and I'm so proud of what you're doing, and can't wait to hear how school goes. You're doing great, Rach, and I'm so proud of you!

  2. Hey Rach!!
    You are sooooo close to the finish line, just the exchange surgery and then you are home free!!!
    I hope you are feeling better pain wise.
    Thinking of you.
