I am a 41 year old mother of 3 children (22,20 & 17). I am about 5' 9" and weigh about 185. I know I am a little overweight but not too terribly much. All of my children were large babies and I had very long labors and deliveries. I have an umbilical hernia as well as my muscles in my abdomen are separated. I have been hoping to have this surgery for the last 17 years!! I go to my first appointment with my ps on Thursday. I don't expect to wear a bikini after all is said and done, but it would be nice just to wear clothes that actually fit! My husband is very supportive of this but we just haven't had the means or time to do it until now. I am super pumped!! I will try to post pictures later (if I can manage to bring myself to do that)! Yikes!!
