    :wink:Do you have a favourite local dive site and a helpful buddy so that you can back into the water easily? You'll need help kitting up, but once you're under it'll be great!

    For now, I can't even get in the water because the scars are not fully closed. But when I can, I'll need more help at least to carry my thing . I'll take it slowly so the scars don't open.

    In the mean time, I hang out at the LDS (they've started to call me the dive shop rat) and go help with certifications as "moral officer" and watching out.

    I will go diving this sunday. I have a possibility for tonight, but I'm not sure yet, though it is a very quiet place to dive. I might be a good place to start.

    Otherwise, Sunday will be calm too.

    I finally went diving last night. Shallow easy dive. Everything went well.

    Fish beware, I'm back in the water!

    Awesome! I just now saw this thread, but I had a BR in February, and I waited until June to dive again. Not only because I was really fatigued for a long while, but just because the local opportunities for non-drysuit divers are limited much before that. I didn't have any problems with my return to diving, either. Honestly, earlier in the year, the idea of squishing the new girls with a wetsuit and under a BC did not appeal to me so much. Heh.

    All went well yesterday. I took it easy, but a bit less then tuesday. I went to 72 feet. I was ok. I'm really back on track.

    Glad to hear your back in the water... I've considered that surgery before, especially after bra shopping... Thankfully I've recently found a shop catering to bustier ladies and have bras that fit and are comfortable without uniboob happening.. So for now I'm happy, as long as my back doesn't give out... :D
