I was scheduled for a tummy tuck and lipo of the flanks this past July. I had to reschedule because they thought I had a bladder infection. Since I set my new date, my husband has been trying to talk me out of it. I am 30 years old, two kis, and my husband is fixed. I am 5'4" and weigh 155. I am a size 10/12 and hope to be a comfortable 8 after surgery. I've lost 20 lbs and kept it off over the year. My goal is to loose 15-20 more and stay active. I'm so nervous. I want to have fun on Christmas and recover quickly. Please give advice about anything I should buy to prep for recovery.

I have some advice for preping for surgery. Since I was scheduled in July, I know some errors to avoid. My doctor gave me my list of things to avoid at my post op 4 days before surgery. That was not good. Apparently you need to stop taking ibuprofen for as long as you can before surgery but at least two weeks. You also can' t have red wine or smoke 14 days before. He also advised no alcohol for 14 days.

When I went in for blood work, I requested the lab forms be mailed so I could get blood taken 3 days prior to my doctor appt so We could go over the results together. I had white blood cells in my urine. They said it was from a contaminated sample or I was developing an infection. It made me paranoid so I rescheduled: ( They told me to get a clean urine sample, you have to wipe front to back with the towelette, pee a little in the toilet, wipe again, and then collect the urine. I never knew!

what is your doctor charging for your tt?

It is $9,900 for an extended tummy tuck and lipo of the flanks. I'm considering to not Do the lipo which is about $2,500. So I think I'm paying $7,400.

Five days till surgery. I have my pre op tomorrow. I'm so excited!
I added some post op pics. Today is day 10 post op. I am walking straighter but my back hurts when I'm up for too long. Once the swelling goes down, I know my tummy will be much flatter: )
