After losing 75 lbs. a couple of years ago...I'm left with saggy breasts and loose wrinkled skin on my tummy. I want to see a flat tummy after all of my hard work! I'm 41, 2 kids ages 12 & 9.

Today was my pre-op appt. Yikes! Only one more week! The nerves are finally starting to kick in. I'm excited, yet not looking forward to recovery and going stir crazy in my recliner. Can't wait to see my results-wow I need some patience huh. What did you all like to snack on in your 1st week? I don't do carbs...so I need some good ideas.

Its been 4 days since my MM. So far, I've been taking my pain meds about every 3 hrs. and drinking lots of fluids to hopefully keep the swelling down. I am very poofy around my top ab area. My compression garment is squeezing me to death and it happens to be right over my belly button! ugh! I'm scared to take this garment off. I will need to go poop soon (i hope) and I would like to take a shower soon too. I feel like I won't be able to get this thing back on because its sooo tight! I haven't peeked in on my full tummy yet, but it appears to be very flat. My PS said he was able to take off more of my skin than he marked pre-op. WOW! I can't wait to see the results.

I made it! Its been one week and I'm starting to feel better finally. Not so much in a drug/brain fog since I'm only taking my Oxycodone at night. I got my drains removed yesterday (day 6 post op) and also FINALLY had my first BM. I had been taking stool softeners daily which I'm sure helped...but it was still work! My PS says all stitches look great, tummy is flat, and breasts look good too! I made a update on youtube if anyone wants to hear any of my tips of items that helped. Also if you want to see footage of me getting my drains out...here is the link...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiLXqLYiJ0I
