Finally After Waiting Over 20 Years for a TT & $6100.00! 2 wks till surgery. Las Vegas, NV

I am glad I found a web site I have found it very informative on details regrading TT surgery & post op experiences. Didn't realize so many women were dealing with the some problems as I have.
I gave birth to 4 children, 2 natural birth & 2 C-sections. Plus have had a histerectomy 12 years ago, did the incision up & down instead of side to side. My stomach muscles look horrible. I go to the gym 5 days a week, doesn't matter how many crunches I do I will never have a 6 pack. I would love to wear a 2 piece swimsuit, instead of wearing tank suits all the time. Hopefully after this is all over, I might be able to wear one next summer!
I have finally found a PS that is affordable and experienced in his field. Plus I don't have to go to another state to have it done. I have paid & scheduled for my surgery! Date: 9/12/12 I am very nervous & excited! :)

Doing my pre-op appiontment on the 29th of Aug. 2 weeks before my surgery. I have been reading a lot of your post-op posting & photos are very helpful. Really looking forward to seeing my belly without stretch marks & sagging skin. Thank you for sharing your stories.

Good morning everyone! I am going to my 2 week pre-op appiontment today with Dr. Stiles. So excited to count down the days ahead.

Getting really nervous! Only 6 more days. I've been taking my vitamin C & muti. Vitamin once a day, getting ready for surgery.

Will! I think I'm ready for this to happen only 2 more days. I went to the store twice making sure I have everything I need for the next 2 weeks. Ordered the hospital bed today it was only 125.00 a week 35.00 for delivery & pick up. That's a better price then the electric recliner. Pick up the medication also. Tomorrow I will clean house so I don't have to worry about it when I get home.

TOMORROW! I have to be at the surgery center by 8 am. The hospital came and they set it up, it's brand new. I have set everything up by the bed. Making everything easy to reach. I will take my Anxiety pill before I go to bed so I can get a good night of sleep!
Thank you all for your help!

Hi everyone; sorry I haven't been on for a few...

Hi everyone; sorry I haven't been on for a few days. I went into surgery on the 12th of Sept.. After surgery the doctor made me go to TLC (that is an extra cost for anyone over 50 years of age). I was relucted to go at first, because of the cost & travel there. It's located on the other side of town from the surgery center. I arrived there around 2:15, by 5:30 I was nusous, started throwing up and very sleepy. At 7:32 my BP started going down 96/62 & they had emptied my bottles x2. At 8:39 my BP went down to 90/60, I keep dosing off and trying to keep my sister in law informed on my status. 9:39 BP dropped again 73/50, they called the ambulance before 10:32 I went to ER St. Rose hospital. They gave my husband & doctor the wrong hospital where I had been transferred to. 11:09 my husband & doctor are at the right hospital. They had to give me a blood transfusion, I had loss a lot of blood. Now 3 days after surgery I'm back home. I ask myself "was this all wroth all the pain & almost my life". My son texted "o mama hope it was worth it!!!" it makes me sad that I almost lost everything!
I want to Thank all the medical expreance firemen, preimidics and doctors that saved me!
I will see in a few weeks if it was all worth it!

Did any one have bruising on the back side of your legs half way down to the knees?

Today I've been pretty gassy & finally had my first BM, I up the dose to 2 colace pills. I eat soups & jellos, trying not to eat greasy or heavy foods. I made some jello bowls before i went in to surgery and added pineapple to each one(pretty tasty). A friend from the gym said not to eat red meat or shrimp so the scar will heel better. I'll try anything not to have a scar like I did before.
I've been walking almost every hour to get my excerise in don't want my blood to clot up. I've already had enough of the hospital, getting poked, jabbed & woken up every 3 hours. Good to be home! :)

Yesterday, started off to be a good day had my left drain removed by PS. It didn't hurt at all, just felt like a small tug & she put gauze on it. PS said everything looked good & gave me a hug. He said he was glad to see I was doing better.
After wards my sister & I went to the store to get a couple of things, it was my first day to get out of house. I think i over did it. Last night I wasn't feeling very well, had chills & was sore. Took my meds & fell asleep the whole night! Today I'm not feeling that great. Guess I will rest up and get my energy back.
I have up the colace to 3/4 pills per day, ive only had 2 BM since I came home from hospital. Going to have to kick it up a notch!
I'm so blotted! :(
Wishing you all a speedy recovery!

Had a long night. I woke up about 1:15 am found a lot of blood on the bed and my clothes. I called the PS he told me to change the padding & come in the office in the morning. I woke up my sister, she helped me change and washed the sheets and my garment. After a few hours of changing & washing things we finally fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning it was all bloody again. My sister came back and helped me clean it up. I got dressed & ready to get to the doctors as soon as they opened. They took me right back & change my dressing and found that I was bleeding from the hole that the tubing goes into. Hopefully it will stop and I can get rested up.
Have heeling to you all!! :)

Hello all TT's hope all is going well with your...

Hello all TT's hope all is going well with your healing. Last night my I started having a pain right under my rib cage. I took my last pain pill, which I was trying so hard not to take. Till the pain became unbearable. I will have to call & get an other prescription. It felt like my insides were pulling away, so I wrapped another garment on tighter. It gave me some relief! That's what they did to me when I was in ER to stop me from lossing any more blood. They wrapped me up really tight. It was so tight, it was hard to breath.

Ive seen my PS twice since I came out of hospital and not once have they checked my BP, temp or haven't asked me if I've had a BM. They just change my dressings and get me out. I guess I will have to go see my MD for after care.

My sister has been with me since I arrived home, I'm so blessed to have her in my life. I also have great neighbors one neighbor came over to mowe the lawn & his wife brought me lunch, 2 other neighbors have bought items from store for me. I was so worried about how I was going to handle everything while my hubby is away.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! :)

Thought it was getting better yesterday. Last night my right foot started swelling up, there was a bright RED line showing up on the left side of my right foot. It was sore to walk on. So I went to bed and propped three pillows under my legs. I didn't want to take any more pain pills so I took a Xanax to relax and get some sleep.
It's feeling better this morning. I think I will try to stay in bed today.
Have a nice day to all beautiful TT women! :)
Las Vegas Plastic Surgeon

He answered all my questions & has done many Tummy Tucks. I have spoken to other women that have gone to him and they are happy with their results. The after care, hmmm they don't check vitals, they change dressing & send u home.
