Feels Like a New Begining - Scotland, SD

Hi everyone I'm new to this forum but have found...

Hi everyone I'm new to this forum but have found everyones stories and experiances so positive and helpful. I like many of you have thought about getting a tummy tuck for years my first baby is now 32! I ended up having to have a c section which was fine and went on to have a further 3 children. I have always hated the look of my tummy and my stretch marks go rightup beyond my belly button! I could live with that but the skin below my c section and the loose skin I think looks hiddious, my husband has always been lovely about it however, but knows how selfconcious I am about getting undressed in front of him and my girl friends. I finally started to think seriously about getting it done last year and now that the decision is made feel very positive about it, I'm sure nearer the timethough I will be asking myself what I amdoing lol.Please keep in touch I find all your stoies so helpful and inspiring thank you.

Hi everyone I'm 2 days post opp just home today,I have to say so far a very positive experience,I had full tummy tuck but no lipo or mr and amfeeling good had my drains out today, not as bad as I thought it would be! just a weird sensation but its over fast so nothing to woorry about. My tummy was swollen yesterday but this morning not so much,so all in all so far I'mdoing well. I hope everyone else is recovering well I'm thinking of you all and thankyou for all your posts really helpfull and encouraging.

Hi everyone Can anyone tell me why some people can...

Hi everyone Can anyone tell me why some people can shower after only a couple of days, while others like myself have been told not to remove the dressings or get the area wet .I have to go back and see my ps in 7-10 days they are going to send me an appointment, I was told to sponge bath. I will find this really hard as usually shower in the morning and bath at night.My drains came out today only my second day,&-10 days seems a long time not to have my incicion checked.

Hi! I hope you are as excited as I am about our upcoming TT! Mine is 11 days away and I can hardly wait. I will be 60 years old this year and am so happy I am finally doing this. The more I read on here, the less anxious I am. I sat for 2 days when I found this site and absorbed everything I could. so, glad you are here, and thank you for sharing your story.

Hi no I don't have any health issues, my blood pressure was a little high just before my opp but they said that was totally normal. I'm sure you will be properly monitored all the best x
