MM in Cancun - July 6th - So Far, So Good! - Cancun, Mexico

6/6 - 1 day post op; I have been faithful (...

6/6 - 1 day post op; I have been faithful ( obsessive ) reader of this site for the last 3 mths or more. THANKS to all that have gone thru this and documented it before me!! I have a 4 yr old ( almost 5. starts kindergarten this Aug ) and a 15yr old daughter. Gained 75 pds when pregnant with my daughter and 50 pds with my son. Had rapid weight loss post delivery which doesn't help either. I'll post pre op pics later today or tomorrow. I just had a tummy tuck, lipo of thighs and ab area, and breast augmentation with gummy bear implants. BA going from a very small B to a small C....I think... BEST thing from this experience so far is the Patient Coordinator, Sherri Burke. She is the point of contact,arranges the schedule, plays Mom and apparently a ton of other roles while patient isin need of her. She kept me relaxed and calm yesterday pre surgery. as I'm in Cancun doing this by myself. Left Hubby with kids....I LOVE Sheri!

6/9 - 3 days post op ; Feeling really good. Boobs are tender, feel like I've done 10k crunches but no real complaints. I have been eating healthy, drinking lots of water and walking some. I do get tired easily and take alot of naps but feel like I have it pretty easy relative to other postings. Confirmed that I got high profile mentor gummy bear breast 345cc. They are pretty swollen right now but I can tell I am going to like them!
Wish me luck, have 1st follow up appointment tomorrow....small chance that at least 1 of the 3 drains gets removed. Cannot wait to see my tummy and the scar line.
I HIGHLY recommend that you use Sheri Burke if you want to go out of the country to get this work done. Cancun is beautiful and Sheri and her husband Erick are so sweet. They make sure that you have what you need and make you feel like family very fast...

Wish me luck on the dr apptmt!!
