Beauty is Pain I Was Told...- Bronx, NY

I'm 42 and mother of 3 beautiful kids 19,13 & 5....

I'm 42 and mother of 3 beautiful kids 19,13 & 5. Before my kids I was 110lbs the most after I've been the most 160 before my surgery I was 156.. I've wanted this since I had my first but I was scared I hated the scar but I decided to do it anyway..

.I've been reading reviews on here for about 10 months, some have inspired me some have scared me.. But I decided to take a chance and do it.. I've wanted to do this for 19 years now but I've been so scared.

I was scheduled for a breast reduction and tummy tuck but when I did my pre op I found out I was anemic I couldn't do both so I had to decide which one I wanted more. So tummy tuck it is..

The waiting process was the worst I was obsessed with it, it was all I talked about..

9/23/2013 I had to be at the hospital at 6:30 I was scheduled to be first, omg my nerves were shot.. As soon as I got there they made me change went over my vitals, used the bathroom then off to the waiting room I was given an iv then a martini (as per the dr) I was feeling good.. Lmao I got my markings before my iv.. Then I was off to the or room were everything got weird I felt like everyone was whispering and all of a sudden I was awake and had to pee bad I was numb, The nurse said to me as soon as you can go to the bathroom u can go home.. I'm like I gotta go now she was surprised I went to the bathroom like nothing don't ask how but when. I sat back down it hit me omfg that burning sensation was crazy... Hubby came to get me and slowly but surely I made it home I really hate to be handicap... I took pain meds and fell asleep uncomfortable...
