Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with general -- mention that if you ever need surgery for anything again, and they'll adjust the drug cocktail accordingly.

AND, I have to figure out what on earth bra size I wear, the prospect of asking THAT question to get a real fitting, at my age, is relatively daunting, and somewhat humiliating.

Why? Frankly, many women would benefit from a proper bra fitting -- and I know lots of women in their 30s who have had them done. Weight loss, weight gain, muscular changes, reduction, enhancement, mastectomies, reconstruction ... there are a lot of reasons to have them done, and any decent lingerie store or department will do them. I've had one mediocre experience, but the other times I've had it done have been extremely helpful (turns out, trapeze builds musculature that doesn't lend itself well to traditional bra sizing...).

So don't be embarrassed by it.

Nordstrom's generally does a great job, if you have one in your area. They're polite, respectful, and good at their jobs. And not pushy about you buying expensive bras from them either.

Congrats -- I bet your back will be much happier!
