Pre Op. Age 31, 5 Children - Buffalo, NY

I am 31, I have 5 children ages 13,10,9,1, and 10 months. My last baby was 10 pounds and was the worse ever! I broke pelvic bone, I had kidney stones, I had congested heart and respiratory failure. I was in ICU all while pregnant it was bad. I've always wanted a tt before my first child I was 93 pounds, and after my 3rd I was 98 but then I got divorced and.... All of the fat started going to my belly. With my last child I was almost 200 pounds. I got down to 157. I finally saved the cash for a tt. I had tummy tuck yesterday 9-11-12. she removed 4 pounds of skin!!! Every thing burst from breathing, standing, I almost coughed and it felt like I was going to die. The meds don't help at all. I pee in a cup because it hurts to.sit n stand. My drains are not draining.... Don't know what to do about it. I hope its all worth it in the end.

Okay!!!!! Day 3!!! Yay!!! I can sleep a little better and the pain is subsided a little while I'm laying down. It still hurts when I get up and I am still peeing in a cup. I haven't popped yet I am a little scared on how that will go. I can move my legs good. Itchy itchy itchy!!!

So I am 4 weeks post op and I feel good! I can stand straight for the most part and my scar looks great!

It's been 2 months since the tummy tuck and things are looking good. The swelling is only on my lower tummy but it seems to be less and less each day. I feel great. My scar looks good. For scar treatment i was told to just message the scar 10 time 2 times a day. For cream I was told to use anything with vitamin E in it so i use bio oil and mederma I'm not sure if it is working but I was told to do that for 2 months so I guess we will see. I havent started working out yet but I do plan on starting to at get on the treadmill soon. All in all it has been worth it and I dont even remember the pain.

I have a few friends that use the same doctor n loved her. Even my car accidents attorney said she was good. Plus the cost was low.
