I have My BA an TT consultation tomorrow. I'm ready to be in recovery already but it feels weird to be doing this as well. I'm nervous and worry about the surgery. Having three kids (one c-section), I've pretty much established that I have a high tolerance for pain. I know I will love the results (I have high hopes) it's the whole being put to sleep and being cut on that scares me. Also, I know my girls (9,7 &5) will notice mommy can't pick them up and spin them around in circles for a while. I wonder if I should tell them. I really don't want anyone to know. I don't want to deal with their questions/comments.   Anyway, I will update on how everything goes in tomorrow! :)

Anxiety is totally normal at this stage. Hopefully when you find your surgeon he or she will be able to calm you by answering all your questions.

I think, particularly with the 9 and 7 year olds, that you'll have to tell them something about what you're going through (this recovery takes weeks). I would say something along the lines of you getting reconstructive surgery to fix something that went wrong in your body.

Please start your blog and let us know how your first consult went!
