Mommy Makeover - July 3rd! - Beverly Hills, CA

Finally trying to put my story together but with the kids I can't seemed to get much done. Lord help my husband while I am recovering. I am having a TT, BA, and Lipo next Tuesday! I am excited to get this procedure over with so I can jump into the recovery and just get to getting. My biggest fear is I am not going to wake up off the table. How morbid I know. At this point, the pain is going to be what the pain is going to be. I have my meds already, will be at an after care facility for 2 days. My MIL is coming out to help my husband with the boys for 2 weeks.

My lovely boys are 3.5 and 14 months. I am sad that I am not going to be able to get down and be rough and tumble with them for a bit but I just keep reminding myself that I give and give and give and this is something I am doing for ME!! Something I am giving myself. I never get much time for myself and getting to a gym is out of the question.

I am 5'10, 175. This is the heaviest I have ever been so I am not thrilled about it. I have always been. My husband has been very supportive simply saying, "If this is going to let you feel better about your body then go for it."

Recovery-wise I am planning to go back to work 1 day shy of 2 weeks. I have pretty much a desk job so I am hoping that is going to be realistic. Really that is all the time I could take off. I am going to really have to keep myself in check and not over due it, especially where the kids are concerned.

Went in today post op day 8 and just saw the nurse since the dr is on vacation. She said I look great and seem to be healing nicely. She took off the tape, or whatever is over my incision and replace it with fresh stuff. Nothing exciting just that I looked great, be patient to see my results but that I am going to be happy with them. I go into see the dr. next week (7/19) so we will see what he says.

I am standing fairly upright but my lower back gets very sore by the end of the day since my stomach muscles are probably nonexistent right now and my back has to over compensate. In the mornings I have a pain in my left groin area that is apparently a nerve that is trying to heal. I massage it in the morning and by the the afternoon it doesn't bother me. Just annoying that I sort of feel like I start over every morning. Otherwise feeling good every day. Go back to work on Monday-boo!
