I'm a mother of two 6yrs and 9 yrs. Boyh were c-sections. I'm married to a pretty nice guy,my highschool sweet heart, for 11 years. We've been together since I was 14. Today is my birthday, I am 33. I bought myself a BIG gift today. I'm scheduled for a tummy tuck and lipo of flanks and up my back a little bit. He's going to blend it in. Surgery is on October 26. I wanted to have it soon, as I will be put on Bio-estrogen. Just found out that my estrogen is post-menepausal low!I will start HRT 1 week after surgery.

I have been working my butt of in the gym and my mid-section still looks terrible. I have maintained my weight, I am 5'4 and weight 165. Will post a before picture soon.

Made my deposit today!! I am so excited and nervous. I had a breast reduction 5 yes ago and it was a bad experience. I had a terrible infection and I dehissed completely on my right breast! My new doctor reassured me that it was not my fault that the "other" surgeon stitched me up to tight. I'm going into this surgery very well informed. With my c-sections I had no problems at all. I promise I will post pics soon. I don't have a good mirror to take them with.

6 days until surgery! I'm so excited. I have made plans for the first 2 days after surgery. My sister, who happen to both be RN's will take turns taking care if me! I have only told my husband and sisters that I am having surgery. I haven't even told my parents. I don't want to stress them anymore than they already are. I told my 9 year old daughter that I am having a "procedure" that will fix my muscles in my tummy and that I will be sore for a couple of weeks. I haven't told my 6 year old anything. I thought I would tell him the evening I come home after surgery. I will be as brief as possible with him. I'm afraid that he will go back to school and tell everyone! I will make sure that both of them know that it is a personal and private thing and that I am fine. I took pictures of myself but stil can't figure out how to post them on here.

Here are some before pictures. I'm pretty nervouse about tomorrow! Decided to eat light today. My stomach is growling! Sorry if the pictures are sideways.

1 day post-op. The doctor removed 7.5 lbs!!!!!!! I can see a difference even throughout my binder. My lasted 4 hrs instead of the 3 that he thought. I don't know why, probably cause he's a perfectionist. Waking up from surgery I wasnin TERRIBLE pain!! I stayed in recovery for 3 hours until my pain was controlled and my nausea was ok. I was there so late that they locked up the drugs. thank GOd I took my phenergren suppository. My hour ride home was ok. It took me forever to pee. Now it seems like all I do is get up to pee. They sent home with me a pair of circulation shoes. They pump my feet to prevent blood clots. I'm going to take a shower today!!! Yeah. I'm draining ALOT!!!!! I doing better by myself than I thought I would:)

Well I'm 5 days po. Not feeling bad. I'm taking leads pain medicine. Now down to 1 oxycodone every 5 hours plus a toradal every 8 hors for swelling and pain. I have coughed three times, HOLY CRaP!!' that hurts. I would say if I didn't have MR I would be getting along a lot better. Putting ice on my tummy feels good. I finally pooped 4 days post op. I think my swelling may be starting to subside today. Yesterday I was swelling ALOT. They sent me home with vascular booties. I had to have them on everytime I was sitting down for 3 days after surgery. They pump my feet and help with blood clots. They feel good, actually.
