OMMGGG! So happy I found this site! :) I'm a 25 yr old mommy of 2 (girl & baby boy) just had my last baby 7 months ago.. I knew from the moment i had my daughter I wanted a TT, but didn't want to waste $$ being I was some day going to have another child. Now after 2 C-sections I need it!! Well that day has come and gone! Tubes are tied and ready to get rid of the BELLY BEAST! I have done a lot of research found the perfect doc and finally I will be back to a flat tummy in less than 2 weeks..WOOOHOOO I'm super nervous being some of the pics I've seen on here and reading people stories of their healing process sounds beyond painful. But you know what they say Beauty Is Pain! If any of you ladies have words of encouragement or some do's and don't please share them :) Thanxx

Pre-op is scheduled for tomorrow. I feel like I don't have enough questions wrote down, and I just know I'm missing something :/

You can google TT question and view list of questions. You can search here on RS as well. Good luck

So I had my pre op yesterday, and the nurse went over a million things..Like how am I supposed to remember all of that?? :/ Anywho I got all my RX that I need to get filled before next Thursday. I was also informed that I would have to buy my own anti-embolism stockings which I assumed would be provided before surgery. It's not a big deal that I have to purchase them but after spending that much of money for the TT i thought that they would atleast supply them. but whatever.. Luckily I got a packet of things to expect after TT which is helpful so I can read over myself. Well I can say I'm more excited than nervous.. Marach 7th will be here in no time!!! :))))))
I had my pre op yesterday with Straka too. I'm having my boobs done, but I was suprised by me having to buy the stockings too! He is a great doc though so I guess it's not a big deal. I have been considering a tt now too. I am going to follow your story so I can know what to expect. Good luck on your surgery and happy healing!!

I just got all of my RX filled total came out to be $127 for only 3 prescriptions. The most expensive was the blood thinner injections. Now I just need to pack up some clothes since I will be staying with my mother for a week. Also I noticed some of you are wearing jeans in the early days of PO?? My doc informed me that I wouldn't be able to wear jeans for a while but not sure how long awhile is that he was referring to..hopefully it's not to long.. Well 4 more days to go!!!!!!!!! YAY!.....
Hi Katie and Frenchy, it's awesome to fine someone in Kingwood who's gone through this. I'm PO DAY 18 and I feel fantastic.

Oh how I have a ton of questions..lol have you been able to wear Jeans yet and if so have your Jean size changed? Sounds crazy but that'd the most exciting party I'm looking forward to is fitting back in my pre preg Jeans :)

I'm so anxious and nervous all at the same time!!.. I feel like i don't have everything & on top of that I'm beyond scared of what the pain will feel like. Now I done had 2 c-sections but for some reason I have this thought that the pain will be much worse than a CS.. Has any of you ladies that have had a CS can say whether the pain is the same after the TT or is it much worse???
thanxx for the letting me know ERIN. I also will be getting MR with my TT.. I def will read your post so I can know what to expect... Hope all is well with you :)

Hi Frenchyy! My TT with MR was a week ago today. I would say its comparable to a c-section in terms of amount of pain. However it's a longer slower healing process. My pain was only bad the first 24 when trying to walk. Laying in bed I was fine, but they make you walk, ouch!! Nothing anyone can't handle though. It was not nearly as painful as I imagined. You can read my review if you want, I've posted almost every day in the past 7 days of my recovery. I had 2 c-sections, like you. Good luck, you'll do well!!

So surgery is now 2 days away, and I'm obsessed with searching the internet for before and after pix. While searching I came across this surgery morph site which allows you to play around with effects to see what you would look like if you choose plastic surgery.. It was fun & interesting I must say =^]
Good luck on your upcoming surgery!! Cant wait to see your results!!

Wow can't believe its all over.. Couldn't be more...

Wow can't believe its all over.. Couldn't be more happier! I definitely would do it over again if I had too. Today its my hard day I must say. Surgery started at 12 noon yesterday day and went home at 5:45pm. Stayed in recovery for awhile longer due to the pain but that pain is no where near todays pain I'm in.. My back hurts alot from being hunched over and sitting in this recliner. I took a peep at myself and um super swollen but it looks good.. I'm trying not to take so much pain meds so I won't be dependent on it. I also have to start my blood thinner injections later today. Overall I feel ok while sitting only but when u stand if I had to rate my pain I'd say its at an 8 today. I'm typing this from my phone so no way to post pics just yet but I should be able to post some by tomorrow when I get back to my laptop. Ttyl ladies
Congrats!!

Today I make 1 week PO :/ I'm not sure how i really feel.. I mean I'm happy that i no longer have a pouch but I guess i'm just tired of being confined to the recliner. I'm soo ready to start moving around and getting abck to my normal routine! I went to see PS yesterday and he said that it would be another week or so with these drains in which sucks monkey balls. My tummy and flanks are so swollen but went i got my binder put on and kept it on all day it made a BIG difference when i took it off to shower this morning. That made me smile :) Now I don't know if i'm suppose to do this or not but today i put my binder on and bought a small girdle and put it on top of the binder and that has helped my back sooo much. I'm completely of the pain meds and muscle relaxers, I only take the blood thinner injections now every night until next week. I also added so pics that shows how swollen I'am.. So until next post Good luck ladies and happy healing to all.. :^)
What you feel is normal! It's hard not to go stir crazy when basically all you can do all day is lay and sit, and walk slowly. It will get better, I promise! You look great!

I'm so sicking tired of these drains, I want to snatch them out myself! They honestly hurt like h*ll.. I so wish I would have known by my PS that I would still have these dang things in. I feel stuck just because they cause so much pain while sitting that I feel so miserable. I hoping and praying that I can atleast get 1 taking out by tomorrow.
