Hi, I am new to this forum but I have been checking it out for the last couple of weeks. I just had a TT on Friday the 7th. I did not have muscle repair; I did have a hernia repaired at the same time however. Kudos to all your ladies and your strength for having everything done. I am miserable in only what I had done. And I can't stress how much I hate these drains and this compression garment...when it is not hurting it is making me itch. I am hoping to get the drains out Tuesday when I go back to visit the doc.
So to try and make my history as brief as possible...Prior to having my son, who is now 17 I weighted about 135-140 (I was 22 years old). During my pregnancy I sprained my ankle and then a few weeks later cut the bottom of my foot open and basically spent over a month laying around absolutely doing nothing except packing on the pounds....by the time I had Shae, my son, I weighed in over 200lbs....and I am only 5' 2". After having him I got on the Phen-Fen train and I ended up losing over 70 lbs. and I subsequently lost all my breast tissue along with it and in 2000 had a breast augmentation. I had 480cc each side smooth round low profile. Was really the only choice back in those days. lol. Anyways over the last 12 years I have battled weight gain and again returned to almost 180lbs about 4 years ago. I found out that I was hypothyroid and started Synthroid...Got my thyroid under control and along with it I started a healthy eating plan and rigorous workout routine. I did the Insanity program two times in a row and then started running about 2 years ago and have been loving it ever since. Back in February of 2012 I got another breast augmentation by the same doc that did this tummy tuck. I got 750CC high profile allergan filled to 820. I am very happy with them...oddly enough they are larger than the last but I don't notice it. Anyways to try to pull this story together after all the abuse of the yo-yo dieting gain/lose weight by stomach was a saggy mess. The muscles underneath are tight but now at 41 there is not the elasticity to pull the skin back together. So that is why I chose the Tummy Tuck. Hopefully this is not too scattered and semi-understandable.
Anyways....Just wanted to say hello and thank you for allowing me to be a part of this.
Who else has a problem pooping? OMG....I am dying...

So really my only issue the swelling. I had sex for the first time a few nights ago and several times since and I have also noticed that my muscles in my upper stomach feel kinda tight afterwards....that it takes a minute to stand up straight.. Otherwise I am good..
He is patient and thorough. This is actually my third surgery with him. In February he did a breast Augmentation, In July a crescent lift and now the tummy tuck. I LOVE him and his staff!!
