4 YEAR wait for a surgery consult?
After three pregnancies and nursing each baby for a year, my breasts have become enormous. No, they did not shrink after weaning each kid. Genetics are not in my favor, as I take after my dad's side of the family in that way, and all of his 85yr old aunties has giant boobs that sag to their bellies. That could be my future. No thank.
So, I asked my doctor for a referral for a reduction back in April. Hadn't heard back from the surgeon, so today I phoned to make sure they had my request. Yes they do, but it's a four year wait to get a consult, and then who knows how long to get the surgery. Probably another four years! I know this surgeon has the best reputation, but wow! My doctor thought it would be about 6 months to get a consult, and then another 18mos before the surgery.
I guess I have four years or more to get into good shape. However, enormous breasts are my genetic curse, so this surgery may very well proceed even if the rest of me is slim. It's really hard to exercise with them bouncing all over the place.
Anyone out there that was or is going to do a reduction?
Needing some accountability, so here's my stats:

GW: 135lbs or less
Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)
