Bigger breasts!

Hi all. It's about 8 months since I've been on here. It's a full year since my LAVH and I feel great! Just a wee question..anyone else notice their breasts getting bigger? Mine have increased significantly although they are very sore.

Re: Bigger boobs!

I have never heard of this kind of post-op development...have you consulted your doctor?
I have large breasts anyway, so I am not looking forward to anything like that...

Re: Bigger boobs!

No not been to doc. I googled it and there are quite a few similarities to my story. I've always had small breasts so this is a bonus!!

Re: Bigger boobs!

That would be a nice side effect. I have small breast, and they have been feeling full since my surgery. I was going to bring it up to my doctor on Thursday.

Re: Bigger boobs!

Do you still have your ovaries and ate you on any estrogen?

Re: Bigger boobs!

Since your profile shows you have one or both ovaries, you could be dealing with estrogen dominance issues, which simply means your ratio of estrogen to progesterone is off.

Have you talked to your doctor?

Hi there perthot!

It's a change from your 'normal' so it wouldn't hurt to ask your doctor and see what he/she says. I had TLHBSO, and I noticed I felt and looked a bit 'fuller' for the first couple of months post-op and mentioned it to my doctor rather excitedly (I am very little in that department) and then she proceeded to burst my bubble and said, "Hate to tell you this but it's probably fatty tissue!"....thanks a lot! ...oh, well..... win some you lose some

Anyhoo,...Wonderful to hear you doing so well and hope you get your answers soon.

Take care now princess and wishing you continued happy healings, xoxo.

Re: Bigger breasts!

I could really use this side effect. Crossing my fingers that this will happen for me.
