I'm extremely excited about my TT next week. But I keep thinking "what if I don't wake up" or what if I get a clot....

Is this going to be worth the pain of recovery???

Ok....so I have a really crazy question......

Ok....so I have a really crazy question....

Should I shave my "area" before surgery? I normally do, but I don't know if that will mess with the position of the incision. ;)

Ok...so, I'll be 4 weeks PO this Thursday. I'm super excited about the results already. I'm definately tired of wearing my compression garment. My dr said I could take it off at 4 weeks, but I'm afraid if I take it off that I'll swell up like crazy. I haven't had any problems with swelling so far. Maybe just a little. Any suggestions?

Christina yes this is normal :). It only means that you are a good mom and love your kids. But you are not wrong in doing this for yourself. You deserve it. The kids will be fine during your recovery. You will be back up and feeling wonderful before you know it. Plus you will have a beautiful flat tummy.

Go for it girl:)

Hi Chels,

I assure you that these are all normal thoughts before this procedure.  We all have felt the same way and freaked out about the same things. 

You will wake up and the pain is all temporary and will end.  Just try to stay focused on the prize at the end.  It really is worth it :)

So tell me how  you found your doctor?

Thanks for the advice! I'm trying to stay positive. My surgery is in 3 days, and it still hasn't really sunk in that it's going to happen. I've been wanting this so long, it seems like it's not a reality. I'm sure the night before will be a sleepless one. I found my doctor by going on the board certified plastic surgeon website.
