Is a breast reduction medically necessary to eliminate pain caused by herniated discs?
I am 5'8" and 230 lbs and a size M. I am actively trying to lose weight, but now have a herniated disc in c5/c6. I think the weight of my breasts are causing this. Is it more important to lose weight before or after the surgery? It is extremely hard for me to exercise at this point, but I am watching my diet. Please advise. Is it medically necessary to reduce the breasts to eliminate the pain from the herniated discs? My bra straps dig deeply into my shoulders.
