My surgery was June 22nd 2012. I had lost 60 lbs on the HCG diet since jan and had ALOT of extra skin. So happy to finally have a regular belly button and to be able to fit in cloths again. I went from a size 22-24 in nov 2011 to now a size 10! They removed 30 lbs of skin and fat and made me look beautiful again. My tummy tuck cost $3700 and that included the Lipo!! So excited to go cloths shopping!

I'm in the hospital now. I had to have a huge piece of my lower stomach skin taken out due to a lot of dead tissue and extreme infection. They say they can't cloths the hole for 3-4 weeks. I guess you do get what you pay for. The surgeon seemed so nice and gave me an un beatable price so I did it. Biggest mistake ever. Learning experience I guess :( a very painful one.......

I've been in the hospital now since July 10th. Hopefully I'll be discharged tomorrow. I've had 3 blood transfusions, 2 iron transfusions, have had 2 CT scans, have a pick line in my arm that goes just about to my heart. I have to have this wound vac thing on for the next 3-4 weeks, dressings are changed every 3 days, and antibiotics put into my pic line 2-3 times a day. This was way more than I bargained for.
