Some Simple Questions......
« on: October 29, 2006, 10:41:24 PM »
Getting my surgery in a month or so, have a few questions which I couldn't find the answer to-

1) Will visiting the tanning booth a few times before surgery effect anything? I want to look as good as possible when I show of my new body as I am very white for obvious reasons. I am in good shape though other than the gyne.

2) What kind of painkillers will I get and how many days worth?

3) How long until I can lift weights again? I have been doing so religiously for a year and am afraid of losing a lot of muscle.

4) I was told not stop smoking marijuana as it is a probable cause of gyne even though it appeared before I ever smoked. The insurance will not pay if I continue to smoke pot the doc said. Any chance the doc might drug test me the day before the surgery at my consultation and tests?

5) I have class 6 days after the operation, will I be well enough to make it and to carry textbooks?


Thanks in advance.

Agreed...

Could this be gynecomastia or simple fat?
