I'm scheduled for the 20th and scared. I have four little kiddos all 7 and under. I honestly just wanted a breast augmentation, but due to muscle separation and several hernias (due to pregnancy) ive been advised this would be a good time to take care of the issues before they get worse. Plus i have some help set up for at least the first 3 weeks...I known won't get another chance. Im in great shape and weigh about 122, just have a loose pile of skin and small lovely hernias...not to mention a not so cute belly button. It doesn't look like there is enough skin to completely remove my current belly button. I'm worried about the scar and the scar of my old button??? Anyone have this issue? Seems like in will hv a mutant button....ha. From all I have read it seems like people really aren't feeling like themselves for at least 6 weeks? That's gonna be tough for me to pull off. Anyone feel better sooner you have met or read about? Thanks everyone!!!!

Just added more pics. At 6 weeks I am really starting to feel normal and strong again. I still have some swelling, but I'm grateful I can fit back into almost all my clothes. I still have some muscle soreness from the TT muscle repair...mainly above my belly button area, but it is nothing compared to early on. I did get back to the gym and made the mistake of trying to do a kickboxing class. Even though I took it easy, I don't think I'm quite ready for it. I think I'll stick to walking a bit longer. I had my 6 week appt this past week and won't see the doc again until 6 month. He gave me more tape to wear through the end of the year...I believe it's the special gel strips that look like Scotch tape. That's about it! I'm back to full swing with work, kids, and more. I'm so thankful for this site and all of you lovely ladies!!!!!
