Today is 9/20/10 and I am one week pre-surgery. My surgery date is set for next monday the 27th. I am excited and nervous at the same time. My Dr has me taking juice plus and bromelain twice a day. They say this will help with the swelling afterwords. I am getting a full tummy tuck with lipo in the adominal, love handles and inner thighs. I have really high expectations and hope that this surgery lives up to them. I just turned 41 and want my body to look 25. I have 3 children and it shows.

I have days that I just sit and cry and wonder why I did this to myself. The back pain at times is unbearable. I have learned that the more I walk the better it gets. I got the first drain out on Friday and then the other one out yesterday. What a relief. It does not hurt to hahve them removed. If anyone takes something away from my story it should be take your stool softners and then start taking laxatives a few days afterwards. You will be extremely uncomfortable from being backed up. Picture this: you are consitpated, and when you think you finally need to go you have no muscle strength to push and your butt is being pushed together by the body suit you are wearing. Not a good combination. I finally had to resort to my fleet friend. I feel like a whole new woman and I am sure I lost 5 pounds. The other really weird thing for me is when I expose my tummy and someone touches it I get the dizzies and almost pass out. It doesn't hurt it is just weird feeling because it is knumb and then it tingles. The doctor said that it is normal and it will pass.
I moved from the couch to the bed last night and that was very nice. I still have my back and legs propped up. I am looking forward to the time that I can actually stretch my legs out and lay flat. Cold compressed help the back muscles relax. I was feeling big yesterday so measured my tummy which I also did before the surgery. I was 39 1/2 around my belly button area and I was 43 before. So I that is 3 1/2" even with the swelling. It is nice to have small positive things like that to keep you going. I am scheduled to have the stitches removed on Monday. That I am somewhat nervous about about. I will post pictures as soon I can stomach having my bodysuit off.

I had a breast enlargement in 2000 and that went very well. I decided to go back to Dr. H for this procedure. Dr. H is very caring and his office staff is top notch.
