I picked up my prescriptions today, les than 48 hours to go! My family is arriving tomorrow to stay and help me out, I really don't think it's hit me yet that this is actually happening. I'm not excited or nervous...but I know when I get to the office and I'm on the table, that's when it will feel real.

Vicodin for pain and an antibiotic to prevent infection. I also picked up a stool softener because I read that it's needed with the painkillers.

I found my way over from the main TT board! I just found out on Friday that I'm having a MTT w/o MR, plus tumescent lipo of upper/lower abs, flanks, hips, and bra roll. I'm also having fat transferred to my hands. Surgery is June 7! I really have no idea what to expect; I had upper/lower ab lipo last October after losing 40 lb and I knew then that it would be a 2 step process to get the body I want (since I wanted to avoid a FTT at all costs). Since I've already been through the lipo I'm guessing it won't be much worse this time around because I'm not having MR, or at least I hope so!

not long to go! how many hours will your surgery take?

I honestly don't know, I'm guessing 4-5 hours? That's one question I forgot to ask. I definitely will when I talk to them to confirm my time this week!

Sorry you have to wait longer, but I bet you will be glad to have the extra help! I have help scheduled for the first week but after that I'm on my own (single mom).

Everything will work out beautifully.

I had my tt and br last week, and waiting until you have proper help for yourself and the kids was a smart decision. I still need help in and out of the recliner, sleep most of the days and am exhausted after a shower. I keep telling myself to be patient for results and to feel better. Don't feel bad asking for help, or a glass of water..I'm finding that even only one week po, the help is dwindling. Good Luck with the new you
