Getting Lipo Tomorrow - Not Nervous - Columbus, OH

O.k. Tomorrow is the big day - well Day 1 of 2...

O.k. Tomorrow is the big day - well Day 1 of 2 since my surgery is taking place over two days - Monday and Wednesday. I'm getting tumescent Lipo on my upper and lower abs tomorrow, and on my hips, flanks and back on Wednesday. Going back to work a week from tomorrow, ready or not. Can't be off work any longer than a week due to quantity of work.

I've mulled this procedure over for years, ever since gaining 20 lbs after being diagnosed with hypothyroid disease. I want to lose inches from my waist and hips. I'm 51 years old and weigh 150 lbs. My waist was 35" last time or was measured (a few weeks ago). I'm currently a size 10/12 but have no definition. I've always been large-chested, but I want a shapelier figure.

Wish me luck. I'll post pics when I get them. I'm not nervous, but I just don't want to feel lots of pain. My doctor is Dr. Blome in Columbus, Ohio.

Thank you, ladies!

Thank you, ladies!

I'm in my hotel room I'm Columbus recuperating...

I'm in my hotel room I'm Columbus recuperating from surgery #1. Lots of drainage. 4.3 liters removed from upper and lower abs alone! A little bit of discomfort.

What bothers me most is that the few people I've told about me doing this are not supportive. It's the first time I've done anything like this for myself, and I've struggled all my life with being chubby. I wasn't looking for a quick fix but rather a reshaping so I could get better definition and be healthier. Instead I'm getting very curt "good lucks" from people who I thought were my friends.

What's up with that? Very discouraging to me when I view it as something so positive....
