Well...it's 12am....today is my big day!!!!! I'm on my way to Columbus, my sister is driving me and she is gonna stay with me. I made reservations at a local hotel for 2 days.

Week I just left from seeing Dr C...... I thought that I was gonna get my drain taken out today but he said no its not time. So I'll wait. He also said that I'm healing nicely just alittle swollen but that's to be expected..... I am truly satisfied at this point be he assured me that is gonna be much better than this.....with that being said "All Smiles Here" happy healing to everyone. Have a great day

Good morning as we speak I'm on my way back to Columbus for my first check up. I am excited about my progress, I'll post more pic today. I think that my healing process is going good because everyday I'm feeling better and I'm so thankful for that the swelling is going down around my bb ..... And by the end of the day most of my swelling is at the bottom of my stomach is that natural?

Congrats on your upcoming surgery! You're gonna love being on the flat side. This is one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself & I haven't had 1 regret except not doing it years ago. Can't wait to follow your journey.

Thanks Ladies, been out today getting things that i will need but i didn't see bandages on the list.....would you suggest that i buy some?

I would recommend gauze pads or even mini pads. Bandages will stick to your incision and that will make you fly to the moon when you try to take them off.
