I am the mother of two, a seven year old and a 3 year old. I had my TT 5 days ago and I'm feeling great. The recovery has not been as painful as I imagined. I was up and walking outside the very next day which was encouraged by my PS. I definitely advise taking the pain medication every 4-6 hours as prescribed for pain management. I haven't needed any pain medication for the last 2 days. I got my drain removed yesterday and was able to see my stomach for the first time. I LOVE IT!!!! Soooooo worth it. It looks great already and I'm only 5 days post op with swelling. Anyone who is thinking about getting a TT, I say go for it!! Do your research, find a board certified PS that you feel comfortable with and do it. It's definitely worth the money and the minor pain.
