I am scheduled for a tummy tuck on May 18. I am a little worried because my parents aren't willing to come help me with my kids..... so I will just have friends doing what they can. Will I be able to at least feed my kids and do simple things after a couple of days?

I am really nervous and have been through breast augmentation, a breast implant replcement with a lift and two c-sections! I am much more nervous this time!!!!

2 days post-op..... not feeling too bad. For some reason, I can't sleep too well. Had some lipo done on upper/outer thighs, that is itchy and my back hurts..... but the pain isn't as bad as I expected.

I have felt really good, better than I expected. I only took the pain meds once I got home(not talking about the pump) for about 3 days, excluding bedtime, which I didn't really need, I just wanted to sleep!
I have had more back discomfort than anything. The walking bent over and sitting so much! I will say, I didn't prepare myself for what my belly button and incision would look like! Made my c-section look like a scratch! Of course, I have the best surgeon, so it is perfect! But, not too much to look at.

I am feeling good and hoping to have my drains taken out soon.... I need a real shower!
I am excited to heal and put on a bikini top!!!
