Super Nervous About my Tummy Tuck! - Miami, FL

Hi everyone, I'm a mother of 3 wonderful babies...

Hi everyone,
I'm a mother of 3 wonderful babies all c-sections and FINALLY got to the day of my tummy tuck! Due to circumstances in the family I've reschedule about 4 times!

Well, I've been looking forward to this surgery for some years and tomorrow is the big day!! I don't know why I am so nervous! Have any of you felt this way the day prior?
Also, of you've had a c-section and tummy tuck, is the pain worst, less, similar?

Im afraid of anything going wrong since I'm electing to have this surgery and all my babies are young (5,4,2).
My husband is VERY helpful so he will watch the kids when I stay at my mothers house a few days..

I'm getting surgery with Dr Azurin. Have any of you done a procedure with him, if so how did it go?

I'm feeling much better, still have my drains though :( Can't wait to have them removed so I can take a REAL shower!!! Lol
The only thing that does concern me is that since he did lipo my back aggressively, my upper butt area is very swollen. I feel as if I have one of those inflatable pool rings around my lower bottom! Lol.
I can't wait until that resolves since it does make my bottom look deformed.

Update: * Surgery was a success. Was under the knife for about 6 hours. The doctor got real aggressive with the Lipo on the back. Feel some discomfort in my lower back and in my rib cage area. Trying walk around often*

Good luck! The first week is rotten, but every day for me after day 5 was better! I'm 2 wks post op today and feeling pretty good, can almost stand completely straight. You'll do great, just take it easy and let DH take care of you, I know it's hard not to be supermom, I have three kids also (15, 7, 5). Can't wait to see your results!!

Hi Elayne. Congrats on your upcoming TT. I had mine on 3/23. I did find that the TT was less painful than my c-sect with tubal lig. It's no picnic but I was getting around after surgery pretty well. Recovery is taking longer than the c-sect. But I am a lot older now. So this grandma is slow to bounce back. You'll do great!! Keep us posted if you can. I am in pembroke pines :).
