im 31yrs old mother of 2 last pregnacy was an emergency c-section.. since my last pregnacy havent gained or lost weight but for some reason my stomach stayed bigger than what it was..i dont work out im 5'4 155 pounds and been this weight for the past 5yrs which is great.the reason why im doing this tt is because im so tired of people asking me if im pregnant. I cant wear certain clothes because of the gut im just fed up with it and since i got my tubes tied i said why not so here i am ready to make this happen.. im anxious excited nervous..so ladies wish me luck on this journey:)

so i called the dr and asked him about the binder he told me they provide one... but ladies should i get another and where can i get one?im having a little fet together with my closest friends this weekend and the weekend before my surgery im going to see steve harvey with my girls gotta have a little fun before going to surgery, cause u ladies know i wont b able to do anything for a few weeks... hey i have a question can u drink liquor 1 week before a tt?
That's a good price. Is he doing Lipo with also? I went to NY for a consultation, and the price should be under 5 k. Hartford Hospital is an excellent hospital!

he said i didnt need it.. under 5k is a great price but u know every state is different with their fees.

Hey girl, your big day is coming soon. I think most Dr.'s don't want you to drink any alcohol the week before d/t it can decrease the clotting in your blood. Have you checked out make me heal.com? They have a lot of sites where you can get binders, and other things for your procedure. Keep us posted!

You are looking great already! I hope you feel better soon, regarding the bm, i've had few surgeries done in the past and what i do is i start taking metamucil few days before the surgery and everyday after, couple of times a day that is, it's not a laxative but it makes you "regular", so no pain at all, they have the clear/tasteless one now, you can put it in your water or juice or whatever without tasting it. Good luck and keep us posted :)

so im not 100% happy but just 80% lol.. when i did my tt i didnt get lipo and im regreting it now:(.. im tryna to see if my surgeon does but im not too sure about traditional lipo or if i should get smart lipo.. i still have to fix my right side cause theres more skin on that side.. so lets see what happens i been having a few consultation for smart lipo but idk yet..
I think you look great girl!

From the pictures you look Wonderful! Im having mine done in March 8 and im not having lipo, can you tell me what you dont like about yours and is something I should really think about? The doc said he feels I dont need it?
Reply
reannapartyof7 well what i dont like is that when i wear tight jeans my flanks kind of stick out.. i think that anyone that has a tt should get lipo unless u weigh 100 pounds i think u should think about it unless your a tiny girl..
