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...

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 -...

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...

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. :)
