Hi Trish
I am desperate. I am on pain killers 24/7 and see a chiropractor on a regular basis. I am 165cm and have packed on the weight to a “nice” 115kg. I wear a size 40K bra. When I weighed 55kg I was in a E cup. My breasts have successfully stopped all my sport, tennis and horse riding is what  I miss the most. I cannot afford to pay for the reduction. I have been put on a waiting list for my breasts which I was told by the Royal Brisbane Hospital I will never live to see the op due to the back log. It has also come under discussion that I need to loose weight. I have tried to every diet under the sun so thought a by pass would help, I need to put on 10kg extra to have that done. I am finding every day a struggle both physically and mentally. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Hi Merle
Your story sounds a lot like my ‘old’ story! I was 119kg and have done every diet under the sun, including lapband surgery (which I have had reversed as well). Finally after about 20 years of the weight struggle, I am now about 70kgs (oh, and I still struggle with my weight on a daily basis!).
I’d suggest you take things one step at a time. I definitely got ‘smaller’ boobs as my weightloss reduced. I know it’s not easy, but it makes sense that this should be your first step towards better health.
I think if you visit your GP they may be able to refer you on to help with weightloss, but the formula is simple – energy in needs to be less than energy out.
My email is info@plasticsugeryhub.com.au – I recently followed an after surgery nutrition plan written by a naturopath for after-surgery – it may help with some ideas – feel free to email me for a copy.

Hi again
I have just seen a message from a plastic surgeon who has advised you are at a weight where a breast reduction would be dangerous.
He suggests your first step should be weight reduction (bariatric) surgery.
