Scheduled and Nervous! -December 9th!

I am a 34 year old mother of four, but have given birth twice - once to twins who are now 4 1/2 and then to another little girl who is now almost 21 months old. I am 5'9, 150 lbs., and I have been running for about a year now. My tummy is never going to be the same again, uless I have this surgery. Of course, my breasts won't either! My surgery is scheduled for April 15th and I am very excited about the outcome, but I am very nervous, as well!

Please tell me that I'm not the only one that is a nervous wreck before their surgery! I feel selfish - Like I'm doing something unnessesary while my children are still so little. I really want this, though - I've worked really hard to lose weight and my tummy actually GETS IN MY WAY when I run - not that it's huge, I just can feel it and I hate it. I want to be able to wear a bikini again. I guess you all know how I feel - just someone please help me feel better about my decision.

Well, after I posted this the other day, my husband and I talked and we decided to postpone my surgery until the fall. It's more for financial reasons than anything else, but I am still so so excited to do this later this year!

OKAY! So, I'm scheduled for my lift,...

OKAY! So, I'm scheduled for my lift, augmentation, and mini tt one week from today! I'm so excited, but also nervous - if I wasn't a mommy I probably wouldn't be so nervous.

When I cancelled my surgery back in the spring, I started working out hard and heavy to the TurboFire program. At the end of the program, I had lost 13 lbs. and 20 inches - 7 inches off my waist alone. I went back for another consultation a month ago to see about changing my full tt to a mini. My PS was amazed at the difference in my body, but especially my tummy! So, a mini it is!



I teach a fitness class and I am wondering how long it was before you could get back to exercising? I know it will be a while - especially with core stuff, but my girls will be wanting me to teach soon after the new year!

One full day left before I go into surgery - Friday morning at 8am is the time!

I've been cleaning house, finding every piece of laundry in my house (it's EVERYWHERE!), making lists of everything everyone in the house needs while we're gone, etc. I think I'm ready to go - just need to finish packing bags and checking my lists...

I'm going to take before pics tomorrow morning and I MIGHT have time to post them before we leave. If not, I'll just post them when I post my post op pics.

I'm thankful for the reviews on here - everyone makes me feel so much better about my decision and the fact that most of you feel the same way I do (nervous, guilty, anxious, scared, etc.) Thanks to all of you who have posted reviews and pics.

Well, I did it! Surgery was 8:30 this morning and it took about 3 hours. Was so scared yesterday, bit by this morning I was much more at peace.

From what I can tell so far, everything looks fabulous! Haven't been able to fully see my breasts, but from what I can tell, they look great - I have some again! Hehe. I got to see my tummy a couple hours ago and it looks VERY good already - so I can't imagine what it's going to look like in a couple weeks. LOVE that I don't have drains, too!!!

I've only gotten out of bed once and it was extremely hard to do - way harder than when I had my c-sections. I walked to the doorway of my room and back and I was shuffling like a little old lady.

I will get my catheter out in the morning so I will need to get used to getting out of bed to go to the bathroom

I'm going to say right now that I think it was totally worth it - despite the pain and being uncomfortable. I'll post pics tomorrow. :)
