Fleur De Lis & Brachioplasty together? Anyone?

I am scheduled to have a Fleur De Lis TT and brachioplasty on 2/20.  I am starting to panic from the many negative opinions being voiced.  Friends & family think I am putting myself in a very bad situation by having both done at the same time.  They make valid points.....How will I be able to get up without being able to use my stomach muscles OR my arm muscles?  How will I even be able to go to the bathroom?  I am starting to think maybe they are right and I should change my plans for surgery.  It's just that as you all know, financially, this type of surgery is draining.  My insurance will not pay for ANY of it.  Having both done at the same time will save me a lot of money.  I also thought that physically, being under anesthesia once would be better.  And, it would be easier going through a recovery period once.  Has anyone else had both done?  Or similar experience?  Please help me decide what to do.

I see woman on here who have like 4 things done at once. I think if you have it done all at once you'll probably be fine as long as you stay on top of your meds and have someone to help you out the first week or so. I had the fluer and the extra incision makes things a little more difficult but after the 2nd day I could do just about everything without help. As long as your PS says its safe.....it's safe. Good luck to you.

Has your PS performed the surgery on other people? Does he have any testimonials of those patients if so? I would guess things would be pretty crummy for the first 2 weeks or so... but then you will heal. Good luck with whatever you choose!
