I have my Tummy Tuck on July 29th! Yesterday was my preop appointment. I was so excited, until I received a call asking to reschedule because they didn't have my vitamins in stocks. Unfortunately, my schedule is so busy preparing to be off work for several weeks, that I couldn't find another time to come in. At first I was a little put off when they mentioned that I could come in and they could mail my vitamins to me, but I would have to pay for the extra postage. Not really a big deal, but it's still bad business. It's not my fault they didn't calculate their stock correctly. (Sorry, I own a business and it's hard to stop thinking like that! lol) I was also disappointed that my PS wasn't going to be there, because I had questions that I thought only he could answer. So I went in and meet with Amy. She was amazing!! Made me feel very comfortable and was able to answer almost all my questions, the only one she couldn't answer was about my thyroid medication but she had my answer by the end of the day! When it was time to take the dreaded before picture, with my who hoo uncovered, I just lifted my dress over my head like I was a little kid!! HAHA she told me to "face this way" and I had to say, "which way, I had my eyes closed!" She was so encouraging and really pumped me up to get this over with!!! She did say that I should keep the compression garment on for one week solid. Yuck! They will provide me a roll of tape that will help the scar heal, so that's helpful. She give me all the info about the hotel I will be staying at as well. They take of everything and give us our room key when we check in for surgery! Can anybody recommend the best after surgery clothing? The nurse recommended a button up shirt, but I don't know about sleeping in one. YAY YAY YAY 13 days and counting down!!

Mines done - 7/13. Very happy with the results so far. I had a Thigh Lift too and those drains came out on Thu and my tummy ones should come out Monday at 9am. I am having very little swelling (thank goodness) and am off pain meds since 5 days post op. Just Tylenol and an occasional muscle relaxer....My aching back! SOOOO happy I did it thoguh. My new BB may be my favorite thing.....

July 12 -- Woot, Woot! Im so giddy about my extended TT today! I've had various emotions throughout the last few weeks. One day, excited -- the next day, questioning should I really do this? But I know deep down, beyond all of these mixed emotions is "Absolutely YES, this is the right decision for me!"

That is exactly how I feel, now I'm like what if something goes wrong, what if I don't like it, what if i die? I know it's a little extreme but I have a million thoughts running threw my mind.

I just set up my account. I am having a TT, lipo and breast aug on July 2nd - a week and a half away!! I am excited but still very nervous. I find myself on this site ever free minute I have trying to make sure I have all the info and tips. I am nervous about the recovery time. I have 2 small children. My husband is being very supportive and my mother in law is coming to stay with us for 2 weeks to help. I am just concerned after she leaves what state I am going to be in.
