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!

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?!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

      3. Arabesque

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
