Good morning ladies. Well good news. My loan was approved. :) Found out yesterday. Went and signed the papers and all that jazz. I have to set up an appointment to meet with my PS and then give them the check. At that point we will set up a day to do the revision. I do have a few questions to ask him. The first one is, I have been reading that once a MR ruptures most PS's will put a mesh in the 2nd time around to reinforce the repair. The second one is, I have also read that is good to wait 6 months after MR repair to fix any ruptures. However, if I wait any longer it is possible for the rest of the repair to come undone. I will keep you alll posted on what is going on and when it will happen. It really sucks that right in the dead of summer I will be doing this, but I just can't justify spending the 5600.00 I already spent and just ignoring this. The things we as women go through! Ugg.....Well I hope all of you are doing well. Allie3, how are things with you and what have you decided?

Congrats on the loan. I would also ask your PS if he used individual sutures or an unbroken suture. If they are individual, one or two rupturing shouldn't affect the others. If they are unbroken there is risk for "unthreading". A lot of PSs do both. Just a good question. Did he ever say why this may have happened??

He just said that the wire may have cheese wired through my muscles. My muscles are very stretched pretty thin from the 2 twin pregnancies.

I never thought about that....was thinking it was a case of broken wire. Keep us posted!

Still not sure I'm thinking to actually be happy with it I will have to but seriously my husband will snap lmao so I'm keeping it to myself lmao for now till I have the money saved it will take me a few months to come up with it by then I'll be sure I want it and I'll feel more confident in my choice for now I can hide it I don't mind having curves they actually look hot but the points and my back are not doing it for me it will look better so I'm on save mode for now would like to have it done before my brothers wedding in oct but I'm also not going to kill my self to save that much that fast it's a lot of overtime lol

Hello ladies! How are all of you doing? I am still depressed about how things are going here for me. I meet with the loan lady tomorrow. I am hoping that my loan approves to get the money that I need to get this redone. If it don't approve, I really have no other options. :( Please keep your fingers crossed and pray that it all works out for me. Once I find out if that is approved I will be setting a date to have the revision done. I am assuming it would be sometime after the week of the 4th of July. My PS is out of his office all week this week..so..I am really hoping that this works out for me. I hope you all had a great weekend. Short work week this week! Yay!!! :)

So, here I sit. I finally was able to talk with my PS today. They did a CT last Friday. They had thought there was a possible hernia and there is not. So, he is not comfortable with fixing those sutures while under local. He wants me to go back under general so that he can repair the diastatis properly. Ugh...which is going to cost me $1881.00 for anestesia fees and the ambulatory services or whatever. I have NOTHING left to give! I am so frustrated right now!!! I am BEYOND pissed off! Sorry, had to vent. Just got home from work. The house is a mess. KIds are at each other's throats. Fixing a drink!

OMG!!!! What?!!!!

Yep less if I go for the local and not the puting me out

OMG!? Why do you have to pay? It seems like he didn't fix it the first time so he should fix it now! I would be a mess. I hope there is a way you guys can meet in the middle. I'm sure the thought of surgery is so overwhelming too. I hope things get easier girl:)

Ok so I saw my ps today iv been kinda worried about my sides still being so big so today when he looked he suggested I have more lipo done on the sides and back and he would pull the skin down more on the sides not sure if I should do it my choice is to have it done while I'm awake but he said it would be better to put me out so he could be more aggressive with the lipo but this of course will come at a cost I'm not excited by the wt it looks but I can hide it easily not sure what to do

@ allie Is, he doing it in the hospital or office? I feel you it's a little scary to mind if go backwards but at the same time we had a different vision. I'm not too happy with my end results either. I go for my 3 month follow up Friday.
  • Reply
Sorry Allie3. :( I can sort of relate! I am not happy with my end results ither. 9 weeks out. 9 weeks out and it isn't at all what I expected it to look like and now I have to try to come up with more $ to go back in and reair the MR that came undone. Super frustrating!!!! I hope it all works out for you!

He will do it at the hospital either way but he will be able to get a better result if I go under again and it will cost more we know this could happen cause I'm so small on the bottom half of me and so big on top I just am not sure which way to go or to do it at all I can hide the sides ok but it would take care of all my trouble spots but not sure I can justify the cost to my husband either

:(..I am so sorry this is happening.

I here you I don't know what to do I think I'm lucky thought I have time to save and think about it for a while you need to get yours repaired shortly I think I'll stew on it for a bit and see if it annoys me a lot
  • Reply
Yeah, I have to see if I can apply for a loan. That is the only way I am going to be able to get that kind of money quickly. :( I just can't belive it happened to me. It is rare and of course I am the one it happens to. This drink is tasting pretty darn good. Finish that and hopefully these kids go to sleep and I am just going to call it a night before anything else irritates me...like the other half.....grrrrrr!
  • Reply
Ya I'm sorry it's happening to both of us but head up it will work out some how
  • Reply
I sure hope so! I have wanted this for soooo long and couldn't wait to have it done and remember reading about complications beforehand, but figured my issue was so rare, almost unheard of actually and I never dreamt that it would happen...and now...here I am. Luck of the draw I guess.

Good idea I think I'm just going to think about this one for a bit and figure it out

Yeah, I think that is what I would do too.
