I cant believe its finally happening! I have two children and my stomach didnt go back to the way it was before I had them. Ive lost all my weight from the kids but thats the only thing making me feel unhappy with my body. I am so excited and nervous at the same time but know whatever it takes to go through it will be worth it. I have a lot of support from my husband and close friends and family, just counting down the days now...
I woke up yesterday with a sore throat and all...

I have read around that people are expecting to feel sick and possibly throw up after surgery? I really hope thats not the case, if someone can calm my nerves on that. It sounds like the most horrible thing to have stitches in your stomach and to be throwing up, ugh. How awful!
They told me I can re pierce my belly button after 6 weeks but to me that sounds a little bit early so I think I will wait a little bit longer for that, still good to know. Im so excited about that!
I havent really bought anything for aftercare as far as bandages or gauze, etc. Is that really needed? If seen some posts that show people bought a whole bunch of stuff and never used it. Any input on that would be appreciated.
I am so excited I cant even function properly. So...

They gave me zofran before the procedure and after the surgery they gave me some crackers and one of my Percocets but they wanted me to go home and eat something before taking a second one and then count 4 hours after the second one to take 2 more. Doing that caused a lot of pain for me for the hour before I was due to take them again because by then the first one stopped working long before that.
I'm drinking a ton of water and its making me have to pee quite a bit, which sucks cause getting up and down just sucks. My hubby helps me up and down if course and if I recommend anything to any future tt'ers it is a reclining couch or chair! It's wonderful and comfy and so necessary!
For the most part, except from the hour that was pretty painful it has been completely manageable pain wise. All the pain that I'm feeling is due to the lipo from what the nurses tell me and that makes sense to me from where I'm feeling it. My hubby had been soooo wonderful throughout this whole process and has been taking such good care of me, I really am a lucky, lucky woman to have a great man!
Will update more after my appt tomorrow and possibly pics : )
