My Tummy Tuck Journey.... - Dallas, TX....

I am a 37 yr. old married mother of 6 children......

I am a 37 yr. old married mother of 6 children....I have 4 girls ages 19...17...15...an 12....an I have 2 boys ages 14 an 9. My first 2 children were born by C-section so my tummy was really messed up from having so many kids! I was still looking like I was about 9 months pregnant lol!!! I would always have someone come up to me and ask me how many months I was or what I was having....I even had a lady come up to me an rub my belly asking me how far along I was...and that was very depressing. I've been wanting to have a TT for years but couldn't afford it....but on March 13th 2012 I had it done and I am so glad I did!!!! Yes there's alot of pain involved but I jus keep telling myself that it's all gonna be worth it in the end! I'm truly loving my flat tummy now even with the swelling!!!! I jus hate laughing...coughing because it really hurts and I haven't sneezed yet and hoping that I don't have to anytime soon!!! I am 6 days post op and I'm getting ready to go to my PS for a check up and I'm hoping to get my drains removed because they're very uncomfortable and they get in my way but I don't wanna rush it.....But for anyone who is thinking about having a TT go ahead and get it done because ur worth it and having it done is worth it also!!!!! Good luck!!!!

I went to see my PS yesterday, and I was hoping to...

I went to see my PS yesterday, and I was hoping to get both drains removed but he only removed the left one and he said that I might get the other one removed on Friday! I was so nervous about getting it removed because I've heard different ladies say that it was very painful and others say that it was just a weird feeling....I only felt just a lil sting and then it just felt like a worm or something squirming inside lol!!! My PS said that everything looked great and that I am going to love my new tummy when it's all healed up....I still have a lil bruising from the Lipo that I had done on my lovehandles....I can't wait to see the NEW ME after I'm all healed.....soooooo excited!!!!!!!

I went to c my PS on friday and I thought that I...

I went to c my PS on friday and I thought that I was gonna get my last drain removed but instead I found out that my drain site was infected so he put me on some antibiotics. Hopefully I'll get it removed sometime this week because it's so uncomfortable and gets in my way! I went through a depression stage a few days this week an I'm only 11 days post op an I'm wondering will I ever be the same again....I'm so impatient lol!!!!

Went to PS today and I got my last drain removed!!!!! I feel so freeeeeee......now I can finally stop wearing boxers an granny panties lol!!!! I can't wait to go to bed tonight and c how it feels to sleep without having 2 pillows between my legs lol I really hated that OMG!!!! Don't have to go back to c PS for 2 weeks....he says everything looks great and he told me to get a girdle to wear to help with the swelling in my lower tummy area and vaginal area because it is very swollen lol!!!! HAPPY HEALING TUMMY TUCKERS!!!!

Well I started my period today, and I usually dnt hv cramps, but now I'm having cramps!! I'm just glad that I got my drains out before I started!!!

I noticed that the glue is starting to peel off of my incision an bb....I just hate all of the swelling in my lower ab and vagina...it sticks out in my clothes....ugh!!!!

Hello my Tummy Tuck Club lol!!!!! I had a very long and uncomfortable night, I couldn't get comfortable for nothing lastnight! I was very swollen and sore especially on my sides where I had the Lipo. I have these lumps on my sides from the Lipo that are sore and I try to massage em but that hurts too....OMG...when will it end lol!!!!! I will be 3 weeks Post Op tomorrow and I thought things would be getting better by now, but somedays are HELL!!!!! I hope that I sleep better tonight because I even took a pain pill lastnight and that didn't even help me.

Went to see PS today....he said I'm healing just fine, said the swelling in my lower tummy and vagina should go down completely in about 6 months and I'm not looking forward to that, but oh well, I'm just happy to have a flat tummy!!!!! I got the OK to workout a lil bit so I'm very excited about that!!!! Went to the doctor with my daughter also and we found out that she's having a baby girl so I'm very excited about having my first grandchild this summer!!!!

I will be so glad when the SWELL HELL ends!!!!!!

Went to see my PS today and everything is healing up great....I don't have to go back for 2 months! He assured me that the swelling will subside over time....told me to keep using the scar gel and oil on my tummy and incision because it's looking great....and also told me that I can workout now as much as I want....so happy that I'm healing with no problems besides the swelling!!!

Ok ladies are any of u out there experiencing swelling or a bulge in ur upper abdominal area???? I'm so scared that my sutures have broken and my muscle repair is messed up....I started doin crunches at 8 weeks because my PS said that it was ok to wrkout I just hope that its just swelling.....I really Dnt want to go through surgery again. I never go without my binder or girdle so Idk what else it could be.....I go to see my PS on the 16th so hopefully he will tell me that its just swelling!

Went to see my PS yesterday, and he said that everything looks great! Talked to him about having some more procedures done.....I'm planning on having some Lipo done on my inner thighs and I want breast implants....I also want the Brazilian butt lift with fat grafting but he doesn't do that.....I've heard a lot about Dr. Campos in Mexico....I'm kinda scared to go there.

I'm interested to know if your bulge went down? I'm 3 months post op and have a bulge where my Seroma was - it's only slight but I can feel it & it's really annoying!

Good luck with your upcoming surgery and please post pics. I am scheduled for a TT w/lipo and a BA on March 12. I am also looking at getting a BBL next year. I can't seem to find a ps that will do all 3 procedures now, so that I can get it over with and start the healing process. Oh well! Good luck!
