Well I was a week post op on Monday and got a rash under my boobs! I had the Nurse Practitioner document it and she gave me a prescription for powder Nystatin. The dreaded boob yeast rash!!!

She said they have a great success rate with documenting and getting insurance to cover Excess skin removal for breasts and tummys. She said they don't normally get insurance to cover arms, but if my bat wings bother me years down the road I will save up lol

I think I'm going to have my doctor start documenting my inner thigh chafing immediately (have an appointment on the 24th) in the hopes of maybe getting my insurance to cover a thigh lift down the road. Chances are slim, but I might as well try, right?

My grandma always says "can't was killed at the battle of try." May as well get it documented each time. I get boob rashes all the time. I had huge boobs in high school and am now a DDD. I would rather be a C cup and have an internal bra done so if I do decide to forgo a bra someday I can

I am the queen of boob rash, sadly I am the carrier of the dreaded yeast bacteria. I have several documents of breakouts while on this journey. I have to eat yogurt daily and use nystatin powder likes its my best friend. I am hoping next year after I hit my overall goal I can get the surgery to get rid of the baggy skin so it will help with not having the breakouts. But overall, even with that surgery I will most likely get yeast infections even still. Damn genetics!

I haven't even had my surgery yet and my boob and stomach rash are super bad. I'm hoping I'll be able to get the insurance to cover them

Is that what the breast rash is from, a yeast infection?? I thought it was just dry skin. I have a post-op appointment tomorrow, should I show the doctor?? I have gotten them several times, too!!! Please help - sometimes it itches pretty badly!!! :unsure:

Show the doctor he will prescribe either a lotrimin or a rash powder with the same ingredient. Try the otc jock itch meds or the monistat while waitIng

is the rash skin breakdown from moisture or is it a dry itchy rash? I have not heard it being from yeast b4.

Mines from moisture. I sweat like a whore in church since my hysterectomy. Right now it's 23° outside and I just told hubby to turn the heat down cause I was sweating with just a sheet on. It's in the stomach folds as well. But on my back, arms neck it eczema and dry skin. I also have been getting hives so benadryl is my bff too.

you should try and lay in observing cloth in between your folds this will observe the moisture and pulled away from your skin.. Hot flashes are evil, I've had a complete hysterectomy myself and am still having about 6 to 10 hot flashes a day.. That's a trick I picked up throughout the years.. I hope it helps, warm hugs new friend, Stacey-

This is gonna sound crazy, but I have been dealing with yeast issues for a while now. One thing that I use to try and help control it a little is deoderant! It helps some, but it doesn't keep it away for good. I've still had breakouts, but far less painful for sure. I'm hoping once I have this surgery, that I will get my insurance to cover my plastics due to the fact I have severe issues with yeast problems already even though I shower daily and take procautionary measures :/. A girl can dream right?!

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!
