Excited to reclaim and repair my breasts and belly...
Excited to reclaim and repair my breasts and belly. Will have breast aug, lift, hernia fix, tummy tuck and flank lift. Nervous for recovery since I am ver active. Overall confident that results will be worth temporary recovery period. Really hoping hernia repair and tuck alleviate chronic back pain.
Two weeks to go
Two weeks to go! Surgeon paid in full! Had my EKG, physical and blood work today. All good. Prepping myself mentally in different ways since I rely so heavily on physical activity for endorphins. Tomorrow is the last day I can take my nutritional supplements. Doc is very cautious. I wrote and taped a vision statement for myself from the other side of recovery and am listening every day now for positive focus. Banishing any negativity. Enough time for that after......
Woke up feeling unsure about implant size. I have been waffling over a relatively inconsequential size difference so finally called Surgeon's office, went down from 500 to 475 and feel better. In the pics I posted black bikini has 475s and purple top have 500s. Anyway, have to stop nutritional supplements tomorrow ie 2 weeks prior. Not so happy. I use Standard Process, which are no herbs and essentially compressed whole foods. Decided to follow my doctor's request. Want safety to be first and cannot afford a hematoma or any other complication. I wish my surgery was tomorrow. I want to be on the other side ....NOW!
I got the "bright idea" to rent a recliner and have a feeling it's gonna be one of my better decisions. :-) Was worried that my period would come around surgery and make me even more miserable, but it blessedly came today, YAY!
No more hiding places soon!
Was just showing my sister my "hide the tuna can" trick (hint: under saggy breast). And, that handful of extra skin is why surgeon is going all the way around......flank lift.
