Hi im belle im a newbie on here :) i have 2 beautiful children, i had them both quite close together so ended up with excess and wrinkly skin so that made me feel really uncomfortable and i lost all my confidence although i do feel so guilt ridden i decided i had to take the plunge and do something what would make me happy with my body and not looking in the mirror everyday feeling down. im oh so excited but so scared of everything about the whole procedure. im getting it done at the riverside hospital in london with transform they are really good so far. Has anyone else had there tt done here? I have my pre op there end of september.

gulp 20 days to go, thinking to myself what the hell am i doing? butterflies and bad tummy ache at the mo. Ive quit smoking for 2 days now at least i did it sooner than later but i wasnt really a heavy smoker anyway. I just keep pushing through i keep saying to myself i am a woman im strong i can do this! Im not scared of dying i say if it was meant to be then it was meant to be i believe when your time is up thats it, the most thing im scared of that is ill never see my children again. I know god knows i have the greatest purpose in life of being a wonderful mum to my beautiful children, i love them dearly. pre op tomorrow one more step ahead!!

Hi Ladies, well just 4 days to go. I just keep looking at my saggy tummy thinking you will be gone soon! As for how i feel i actually dont feel too bad i wasnt as scared as i was about a month ago, obviously still worried and anxious i have no idea if all those feelings will come back all at once on the day. Im taking 30c of arnica a week before for bruising hopefully that will minimise the brusing alot. So weds il be going in at 9.30 to check in then will have to wait around until they call me in, i have to stay in for 2 nights so i have all my hospital bag bag packed, all i need to do know is the housework before the big day! I wish i could post before and after pictures but my laptop is broken so having to use my phone but i will post some when its working. Fingers crossed for me best of luck for up and coming flat siders! :-)

Yikes! This weds is the day! I have done all my...

yikes! This weds is the day! I have done all my washing today, i keep checking my hospital bag to make sure i have got everything i need. Im just speechless i cant believe its come round this quick. At the moment i feel quite good some times i get really scared then it turns into excitement. Im really craving a cigerette right now but im not going to go there AGAIN waste of money! I have saved so much i treated myself to some lovely shoes but i probably wont be able to wear them for a long time yet, i will just have to admire them instead. Anyway im excited to see my compression garnment ive heard they are oh so sexy! I have no idea why i am doing this am i nuts? everyone else thinks so!

Day 4 PO and i feel great, the op went really well i havent been in any major pain just soreness! Im still hunched over like an old lady and the binder is irritating me, 4 more weeks of hell to go with wearing these. I have my first appointment with the nurse on weds, she will change all my dressings so i will get to see how my scars and bb are lookin, im really hoping im pleased with the final result8-. OMG dont sneeze i just did just then and it felt like my stitches split ouch! Also be sure to have a laxative at the ready when you come home hospital my first bm was like giving birth out my back side i was on the loo for an hour!

Pictures posted finally!! Thank you for your help...

Mr chantarasak is a great man he is well known for his excellent stitch work and i couldnt find any thing that was bad said about him. He is a very quiet man but he answered all the questions i needed to ask, he was honest and straight down to the point and thats what i liked about him. You will be in very safe hands with Dr chantatasak, im very pleased with my results so far!

Please be sure to have your phone with you so you can let me know how you are doing. Mine is scheduled for Monday at 12:45. Nervous and excited, but not nearly as scared as I was a month ago. I feel like I know what to expect thanks to this site.

Hey belle Keep me posted on how you feel day to day ..... I'm scheduled to have mine done on oct 31st in Bristol at lifestyle surgery with Simon Lee and I'm actually bricking it .... Met a couple of his patients and had him for boobs before and his scarring is fantastic so going to have boobs redone ( smaller... Had a baby since last BA so need uplift aswell ) and tummy tuck (full) ... I also will blog... All the best will be thinking of you and looking out for your posts x

Hi Donna i have only just seen your post sorry for taking so long to reply, i will keep you posted so dont worry, im such a nervous wreck when it comes to operations its my worst nightmare but as its an elective one it made it a lot scarier for me, i had my ups and downs ever since booking the op, its all ive thought about and talked about, i have been driving my partner nuts! But the last couple of weeks ive been quite calm maybe i have just got used to the idea. Dont worry hun you will have enough time to reflect on the reasons why you are going through with this, its normal to feel anxious! my surgeon apparently is a boobie god so hopefully he can live up to being a tummy tuck god too hehe. all the best of luck xx
