I am about 3 weeks away from my TT procedure. I am nervous and excited. I have 3 weeks off and hope this is long enough. I had 2 c-sections and my boys are now 13 and 10 and excited about a flat stomach again. I am 5 7 and about 150. I hope it is worth it. I will keep you updated on the procedure. Any advice would be great!

I find a lot of people hide the fact they had a tt for many reasons; but like Kimmie said you deserve to be happy and if this is what does it for you then go for it. I put it off for 5 years because I was guilty about spending that kind of money on me (and I was working 3 jobs), until I got fed up and told my self that I can't give my family everything and neglect me. My mom said I was fine how I was and didn't need to waste the money but I laughed and said if I die tomorrow, I can't take the money. My outspoken 11 year old told me,"mom, now that you have a flat stomach, what about your legs!" KIDS!
The one bad thing about feeling better is that it doesn't mean your ready to return back to normal life yet, I have to keep that in mind!

Hi Carol,

You will be sore and stiff on day 8 but will do fine. You could always say you have a sore lower back if that helps. I told most everyone except three people mainly because I didn't want to deal with the comments. I had to see them on day 9 post op and was swollen, stiff and sore so all I said was that my back was acting up. Not a lie....it really was. I just didn't tell them why it was acting up :).

Just remember you deserve this and as long as you are happy with the decision that is all that matters. You don't owe anyone an explanation and certainly don't need to justify this to anyone either.

You will do just fine and love your results! Best present I ever gave myself!

With all of the holiday prep going on the time will go fast!  Before you know it you will be on your way to the procedure. 

Yes as mothers we always put everyone else first and sometimes don't even place ourselves last for gosh sakes.  It is now your time so just enjoy and know you are so worth it!

Hi there,

How are you doing? If I did the math right you would have had your TT this week since you shared it was three weeks from 11/23.

I went back to work to a pretty demanding job on day 19 and absolutely no one at my office has a clue. This week I traveled all the way from the East to the West coast on four planes with my boss, and he still has no clue.

I think by day 14 you should be completely back to normal if you take it easy and follow the docs orders.

Hope all is well!
