Circumferential TT Tomorrow Morning! - Jacksonville, FL

I've known that I wanted a TT since after I had my first son. I got bad strech marks and loose skin on my belly. I knew I wanted more children so I waited til now after my 3rd son was born last Sept. Everytime I had a baby my belly would just get worse and I have gotten to the point where I know if I dont get the surgery I wont ever be "Myself" again, I feel like Im restricted to doing normal things, little things that most people do, like taking my kids to the pool, going on vacation, finding something to wear everyday, etc. So Im here and tomorrow Im ready! Nervous but ready!

Thanks everyone for the good wishes! Surgery went well. Right when I got there everyone was so nice and made me feel comfortable. They took me back and marked me up. I loved how my sergeon marked me up so precise, he measured everything and took his time. After that I was in the operating room and then I remember waking up. My surgery was 4 1/2 hours long. I did have a couple issues with the meds. They told me Im super sensitive to medicine. I actually had them stop giving me the demerol because it was making me feel so nauseous and just took Oxycodone by mouth. That helped a lot. I would rather feel a little pain then feel so sick. The other issue I had was when They started getting me up to walk around my blood pressure would drop so low I would nearly pass out (which would not be good after this surgery) So for a while I was concerned that I wouldnt be able to get my catheder out and go home the next day but the nurse was so patient and helped me every hour to work my self to get up. Every time it got easier. The pain is not too bad just really sore and hunched over. I havent got to see my results all the way yet because they told me to keep my binder on until sat. but I did take a peek and it feels so good to finlly have a flat tummy. Im swollen but it still looks amazing! all of the nurses kept on telling me how much Im going to LOVE my results because they saw my results before swelling in the operating room. so Im VERY excited! Oh yea and they got over 8 POUNDS of skin and fat off me!!! Wow!
