Oh my. That sounds really hard.
Sure glad you're past all that. You are, aren't you?
Yes man, but I promise, there was a lot of pain. Back then, just to get up out of bed in order go the the toilet took preparing for mentally, but my dr. later told me that he may have over inflated my implants during the surgery itself, because I had pliable skin and he kept injecting. I've heard others that it didn't hurt them as much.
But, it changed my outlook on life, when I would
make it to the bathroom, I said, "God, if you'll just help with this pain, I promise not to ever complain again about having to clean my toilet." LOL! So that led to my outlook as being, "I GET to clean my toilet!"
Sounds silly, but it made me look at every aspect of life and appreciate each and everything that I GET to do without pain and with being healthy. "I GET to....." pertains to every part of my life now because I really GET to!
