5 Days PO - Burlington, VT

Well after having a 10lb 3 oz boy 20 years ago that I am finally going to try to get a flat stomach again. It has been a difficult decision but after reading all the posts and how happy most are with the decision I am going to do it Sept 27th. Do not get me wrong I am nervous like most people but in the end feel it will be all worth it. I have my pre-op physical this week so it is becoming more of a reality now then a few months ago. I am recently divorced so I am so fortunate that my brother has offered to come stay with me for 2 or 3 weeks thank goodness for family and friends.

Well tomorrow starts the process I have my pre-op...

Well tomorrow starts the process I have my pre-op phone call then the physical on Wednesday. Getting excited but a little nervous as well. It is wonderful that there is a site like this it has been very helpful to read about everyone's progress to know what to expect.

Yesterday was the pre op appointment and everything is still on track. Only two more weeks till the big day.

Well just about a week away I am getting a little nervous which I think is natural. I am trying to keep thinking about the long term and how in the end it will all be worth it.

Well tomorrow is the day I am excited but nervous...

Well tomorrow is the day I am excited but nervous at the same time. Looking forward to this part being done and getting on with the recovery part. After reading so many posts I know that this will be all worth it in the end.

Day 1 PO I was asking myself what did I do lol now...

Day 1 PO I was asking myself what did I do lol now it is Day 3 PO and I cannot believe how good I feel. Today I was able to take a shower and get into the CG. I am thinking after today I can stop taking the pain meds and switch to Tylenol. I would have to say the drains are not fun at all but hopefully they will come out quickly. Over all I have to say this is much better than I thought it would be.

Well it is day 5 PO and I am surprised at how well...

Well it is day 5 PO and I am surprised at how well I am feeling. Each day gets better and better. Tomorrow is the doctors and I can only hope one or both drains come out. They have really have gone down in the last day. If I have to say anything negitive about this whole process it has to be these darn drains. But again if I look at the results and long term it is all worth while. Happy healing to all and good luck to others just starting the process.
