Looking Forward to Tummy Tuck Feb 20th 2012 - Jacksonville, FL

I am 36, I have 3 kids ages 18, 16 and 7, I am...

I am 36, I have 3 kids ages 18, 16 and 7, I am single mom and want to do something for myself for once! I want to feel good about myself and have hated my belly ever since I had my 1st child in 1993. Over the years I thought about a TT, but never was ready to spend the money...but Now is the time!! I have gone to the gym over the years and still go and lost weight, but the belly never would go away. Im very excited to do this!!

Hi Jen. I haven't heard from you in a few days and wondering how you are doing? walking such but I guess that normal for everyone. I'm not even able to stand 50% straight yet and thats taking a toll on my back. keep in touch when you can!

Im doing pretty good this is the best day yet...I can walk, not straight up, but when I am up too long my lower back hurts, I think from the Lipo brusing. I feel fine though and am bored out of my mind! I did work today, I run an online store from home and was able to get 25 packages out with the help of my mom comming over. Monday I get the drain tubes out and will get to actually see it, I am too scared to look under the bandages. I did peek at me belly button and its big and ugly, but will shrink and heal I know.

That's great news! so glad to hear your doing well. I can only stand for a few secs and my back is killing me.

Thats worst part I think the back pain, I know this sounds stupid but I have found if I hold my arms behind me it makes it a little easier to walk and not make my back hurt so bad.
