    Default Had Gyno Removed Yesterday!

    Took about three years of hunting to find a doctor that would get it covered by insurance. I also knew this doctor through the dad of a friend.

    Total cost out of pocket was about $1600. Better than the $4200 I was quoted by a local plastic surgeon.

    They kept me awake. There is about 5 minutes I don't remember, but I do remember having a full coherent conversation with the surgeon as he was working on me. I asked them if I could take the mass home, but they said they had to send if off for testing — bummer. Only took about 20 minutes. No pain, no swelling, no compression vest. He said I could go back to the gym whenever I am ready, but that I should be especially careful during chest and shoulder movements.

    I have felt great all day today. Picked up my pain med prescription, but don't plan on taking any. No loss of range of motion.

    This is life changing for me; I have had a stupid big smile on my face all day.

    EDIT: Chest is sore the day after, but nothing bad. Little blood coming through the bandage. I haven’t used any Hydrocodone yet, just OTC stuff

    I'll update with pictures in about a week once the smaller sutures come off.

    Day 3 swelling is down and it's starting to look better. Haven't had any problem doing morning cardio, and I trained legs on Sunday.

    It's interesting that they kept you awake and you were conversing with the surgeon. I was under the impression that they used general anaesthetic.
