Only two weeks until surgery and I am nervous but excited at the same time. Its finally going to happen. I am am only able to take two weeks off from write and the doctor really wanted me to take off three weeks. I hope I will b fine with just two weeks. I'm nervous about that. I also have to b home with my kids after surgery so I think that will b tiff.I just hope everything is OK. I'm worried I want like the scar. Wish me luck.

Its been three days since I left the hospital after having my tummy tuck. The pain is not that bad. The medication that I am on works really good. I don't feel a thing.I am taking oxycodone for pain. I don't feel anything. My drains seems to b OK but the one on the right sees to b leaking cause my whole right side be wet.I'm gonna call to see if that's suppose to be like that. I was able to take a bath in two days and boy did I enjoy it. Well a shower not a bath. I put a chair in the tub so that I can sit down. I was shocked that I could eat regular food rite after surgery. I ate healthy even though it was hard because I wanted some fast food.

Eight days since my tummy tuck and the last three...

Eight days since my tummy tuck and the last three days was miserable my stool softener pills (colace) did not work for me my bowel movement was turns and it hurted bad to push them out to the point where my butt was on fire. I do not recommend colace it takes three days just to work. I was so constipated I had to go to the the emergency they gave me a shot and nthat still didn't help so they gave me a ennama I know I spelled that wrong but I'm feeling better now. My tubes are out and its a relief. I can now sleep on my side and in a regular bed happy about that. I'm walking straight up now and able to get around better. I like my tummy I just can't wait until the swelling go down. Well ill update in a couple of days

Well its about 4 months since surgery and I was...

well its about 4 months since surgery and I was mad to find out I cant get a tattoo over my scar because the ink want hold but Idont regret it. Im loving my new body. I am more confident then I ever been. I went to kalahari and was able to put on a two piece and was loving it yay. Sorry no pics yet but im having trouble loading them on here. I still get alittle swollen but im used to it and its usaully when I first get up. I been eating terrible but havent gained to much wait but im going to slow down. dieting is the hardest thing to
to do. I guess i will wait a year and see if i can get tatted. Did anyone get tateed after there surgery

I was really afraid I would pick the wrong PS too, I guess you just research your butt off and ask questions and I think you will do fine. Good luck too you :-)
