Hey girls!! Just want to thank everyone for contributing to this site. Sure taught me alot and put my mind at ease about a bunch of things.

OK for my details on me. I just turned 42 on April 1 and as a birthday present to myself I looked into fixing this gut. That's what it truly is. Lol. I'm 5` 8 220 lbs. I have a wonderful 9 yr old daughter and have always been a big girl. I am very muscular not from working out but from being Italian and riding horses and doing what had to be done. Being raised with don't cry just get it done attitude just worked for me. So when I was 16 I was hit by a car and both of my feet are reconstructed that didn't slow me down at all. But may of last year I was in an accident and t-boned a elderly coupled that ran a stop sign. Well they fixed my truck but can't fix my back. So with all the meds pain blocks and therapy I have decided that removing this excess might relieve some of the pain in my lower back and boost my self esteem since with all these scars has been none existent. As you can tell I'm trying to justify this elective surgery cause I've always done for others not myself.

So my pre-op is April 23. Surgery April 26. Its seems quick I'm reading that everyone waited months and had count downs till surgery date. I must add that its in gods hands and the surgeon doing my TT is one of the docs that put my feet back together 25 yrs ago so maybe its meant to be or he has a soft spot for me. Either way I'm all in and if yall have any suggestions I'm all ears. Wishing everyone gods speed !!!! Ttyl8r

Post- op day 2 Wow I think I can make it. I'm suppose to be weining myself off the pain meds but I'm really hurting last night and today. My drains are coming lighter in color and less and less.

Girls I'm not gonna BS y'all I have a high tolerance for pain but I'm sore and it's hard to get comfy.
My back is sore from walking humped over and sleeping on it. I'm a side sleeper.

I'm still believing I needed it done :-). I just need to focus on the out come and deal with it :-) lol

Hi girls I'm 12 days post op. Yesterday I had my last drain and BB stitches removed. My parents have been my rock in all this and when the doc pulled the last drain out my dad found a missed staple. The doc took the rest out last week. The doc was too funny. Said he was so sorry and then took it out. Had to laugh my dad was a quality control supervisor for government contracts for 30 plus yrs and told doc he couldn't help but to inspect his work. We all got a huge laugh. (And me with no bidder on) !! So I also discovered something else about my new belly. I now have a bigger bikini area to maintain. Like when I was younger. lol. So I'm assuming over the years it slowly rotated down between my legs and doc pulled it back up to where it suppose to be. Had to laugh again (with my binder on this time) its to funny if anyone else has noticed this please chime in. I was talking about it at the doc office and he says "oh we a laser for that" so I guess I'm not that only one ha ha !!! God bless ttyl8r Jen :-)

Hello ladies today I'm 15 days post op and feeling better. I over did it with the walks around the neighborhood and doing stuff around the house. Yesterday I was very uncomfortable and tylenol didn't help at all. So I'm slowing down a little bit and gonna take it easy. My back spasms are making me nuts their my body signal, when they start I stop lol. I hope everyone is healing well.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY !!!! :-)
