After two c-sections with very big babies (twins 7.14 and 8.14 and a 12.1 single birth) I have had very loose abdominal skin. I was up to a weight of 256 in April of 2010 when I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis. This is a diesease that paralizes the stomach. My doctor tried all the "normal" treatments and none of them worked. During the period of April 2010 and May 2011 I lost about 50 lbs and my doctor decided to do a RNY gastric bypass as a treatment for the gastroparesis. My surgery was May 9, 2011 and I currently weigh 150 lbs which is pretty normal for me at 5'8.

I have wanted the tummy tuck since my youngest son was born and now that Ive had the weight loss I dont want to wait any more.

My consult is schedualed for January 18, 2012 at the University of Cincinnati residency clinic. I am being consulted on a tummy tuck and possible breast lift. (I had a breast reduction in Sept 2010 and went from a DDD to a C)I am nervous about the residency clinic but with the price difference ($4000/$8000) I cant turn it down.

I am also nervous about any presurgy testing they might do. Since I have been sick with the gastroparesis for so long my poor body is very run down :)

Right now Im in a size 8 but once I get all this skin removed I should be in a 4 since I wont have to "tuck in" my tummy!!

I had my first consult this past Wednesday at the University of Cincinnati plastic surgery residency clinic. Loved the doctor! The cost for a fleu de les tummy tuck plus breast lift is $4800 and I have my pre-op appointment on Jan 25! I am so exited to be having the more extensive tummy tuck because the doctor said it will give excellent results and when I saw what my breasts were going to look like I was thrilled! I will keep you all updated and would love to know if anyone else has had this more extensive tummy tuck!

Just arrived at the hospital, surgery is at 7:30!

My surgery went well and the doctor said removed a lot more skin than be thought he would. My question is....how do I pass gas? I have the worst gas pains and have tried everything I can think of, help!!!
