Ok, so I'm nine days out and I'm scared. Yep, downright shaking in my boots, stomach sick kind of scared! Somewhere in there is some excitement as well but the fear is winning at the moment. I KNOW that once all is said and done I will be THRILLED with the results but I must say I'm not a huge fan of pain and the wondering/worrying about how bad it will be is what gets me. These boards have been great however, if for nothing more than knowing you all survived! :) Truthfully it has been so informative of what to expect and how to prepare. Thank all of you for sharing your stories!
A little bit about me. I'm 42, wife and mother of two. At my top weight, I was 215 pounds and a smoker. I'm happy to say that I'm 164 now and have maintained that weight for a couple of years. Oh yeah, and no smoking either! While this is not the "ideal" weight on my 5'5" frame, I'm happy with where I'm at. I work out twice a week with a trainer and usually twice on my own. Unfortunately no amount of working out is doing anything to help my "flap" so that is my motivation behind having the TT.
I can't even imagine what my tummy will look like after the surgery. Is there anyone out there approximately my size that has photos to share? I'm going to put my before photos up soon.
Any pep talks would be greatly appreciated! And prayers too! Thank you!
