Wasn't the Best for a Woman of Color - Charlotte, NC

I got the size, shape and feel that I desired. However, I was left with stretch marks and dark scars. She was not very helpful in suggesting what to use to counteract the discoloration and after a while just quit addressing my concerns. Love the look with my clothes on but not totally satisfied when I'm undressed. I gained a lot of weight after surgery and would have like to have been warned about the likelihood of that happening. I asked both about the stretch marks and discoloration BEFORE the surgery and it was minimized. When they BOTH happened, I was made to feel that they were not valid concerns.

On one of my check ups, the RN asked me how old my child is while I was standing in the robe-I don't have any children. I was so self conscious and felt insulted. Who wants to hear that when they are naked in front of someone.

I started working out again, drinking more what and using tons of moisturizer to stop the stretch marks from continuing. As far as the scars, I am still trying to figure that one out. Very disappointed in how my concerns have been handled.
