Thus morning, my cleaning lady is getting the house ready. This afternoon, I am buying all the post-surgery needs. Wondering why suddenly the nerves are on overdrive...

I have been waiting years for this surgery after losing 175+ lbs. and taking a roller coaster ride through weight loss, anorexia, and now maintenance. I feel this is a milestone in my life and am so glad I saw each stage through to the end, but now...WHOA! Nerves.

I trust my doctor, I feel I have realistic expectations, I think I have plenty of support for recovery and if it is lacking am hopeful th online support will be of benefit.

Today, gratitude! I am so thankful for the people who helped me make ths possible and excitement! A flat tummy with no skin flap and no bulge! What will this be like??? Epic, I think.

One day to go and I am a bit anxious wondering have I done everything as instructed...is my body as ready as I cold have made it? Did I do enough research about the procedure and doctor? Shoul I have consulted elsewhere? Don't know don't know don't know...
MizM-- hey! My surgery went so well I can hardly believe it. Thanks for asking. Now that it's over I wish i had not gotten so nervous. The surgical pain was minimal and now I am back home. The best choice I made was to stay overnight with a nurse at the hospital. So very helpful. So worth it along with the power recliner. Very grateful for ths RealSelf forum. How about you? Where are you at?

Glad to hear your experience is positive- that's reassuring. :) I'm two months away from mine, working to lose those extra 20 lbs but I'm really afraid this surgery will be too painful to bear. I keep trying to motivate myself but I hear horror stories- is it worth it? Does it look like you thought it would? Thanks for sharing your story.
