Scheduled my Fully Tummy Tuck Today and Scared - Mesa, AZ

I am a 43 year old female that has two grown children I gained 50lbs with each. Since then my max weight was reached 242lbs at 5'5 that was scary. I have since lost 100lbs over 4 year period and kept it off. However due to the children that I love and weight loss I have alot of loose skin that hangs over all my pants. It is so embarresing. I have done everything I can but the loose skin still hangs there. At this point I am so scared about my tummy tuck that is scheduled for May 12, 2011. The recovery seems so hard and painful and long. Any advice would be helpful.

Well I change my surgery date from May to April 7 and my pre-op is end of March. I am really praying that everything goes well and I survive the recovery; it seems to be difficult and long. Does anyone know if you can excercise the same you did before the tummy tuck? Unlike most people I really enjoy doing cardio and weight training and would truly miss it.

Well the date is getting closer for my surgery and I thought I would be more nervous the closer the date got but I am actually feeling more at ease then at first. I go for my appointment at my doctor for clearance on March 7 and my Pre-op appointment is March 21, 2011. I know it will be here before I know it..I just can't wait to get rid of this Jelly Belly.

I have a question is it possible to recover without having anyone at your home to take care of you after you leave from your surgery?
