Sherry, thanks for all the info. Glad to hear your doing well. I go tomorrow for a fill which will bring me to 440. I was lucky my PS was able to fill the expanders at the time of surgery with 200 cc. His nurse told me this was not usual. I had always wondered why I had preteen boobies instead of a flat chest after surgery. (I'm kind of slow). Anyway, it sure has sped up my fill schedule. Tomorrow will be my 4th fill and I had a down period of 6 weeks between fill 1 & 2 because of restitching one of my breasts. My plan is to get one more fill
after tomorrow making it 500cc, as I plan to visit family for the month of August and that period can work towards my 6 weeks of rest before the exchange. However, it will all depend on tomorrow's fill as last week's was really
uncomfortable. If tomorrow's fill is as uncomfortable I may forgo next week's and wait till I come back in Sept. for my last fill. I so want to speed the process up and move on, but my husband, God love him, is encouraging me to take my time with each fill.
Sorry to ramble on. In answer to your question when will my
exchange be, I just don't definitely know. All I know is, it will be this Fall.
