I’m now 18.5 months into prep for weight loss surgery and yes, it’s working. I’ve lost 85 pounds and hopefully will be getting a surgery date soon.
BUT . . .
There is something very important that I just wasn’t warned about. I was prepared for wrinkles, for sagging, even for the inevitable gas bombs that come from a liquid diet but no one told me that my boobs would fall off!
For the past two weeks I’ve been dealing with frightful electric shocks right through the girls every time I bend down to reach for something. If you’re dealing with this please remember that wearing a very good support bra helps a lot!
Not being fond of getting my chest zapped a dozen times a day, I took this issue to my doctor and learned something completely wild. As an obese woman the nerves in my shoulder girdle and chest wall have been compressed for years by layers of extra padding. Those nerves are now resurfacing, and believe me they arent happy.
“Squish me for decades will you? You’re in for it now!”
According to the doctor, the chest wall architecture will settle down as the weightloss progresses and once I level off it will stop all together. Until then, don’t bump into me. For your own safety. Just dont!
The things they don’t tell you. Someone aught to write a book.
