After 3 children I am finally ready to get my abs back! I have been wanting this for a long time and finally wore my husband down to agree to it. The breaking point was when a co-worker put her hand on my stomach and asked when I was due!
My surgery is on November 10th, so it is sneaking up on me. I have had it scheduled since August, so I am getting very anxious. I am having a full tummy tuck and hernia repair. I did look into having just the hernia repaired by a general surgeon, but I knew I wouldn't be happy with the results. So I have been saving away for this big day!
My husband isn't on board with the surgery (he thinks I look fine the way I am), so I am hoping you all can give me the support I need. Luckily my mom is being a saint and staying with me as long as I need her.
I am an avid exerciser and am quite nervous about how long I will be laid up. I think I am just going to have to listen to my body and play it by ear. I have never taken more than 3 days off - even after each of my pregnancies so this is going to be difficult. I have a feeling I will be in so much pain and I won't have the energy to even think about working out.
I have been reading everyone's reviews for so long and I really appreciate it so much! This is such a wonderful site! I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
I forgot my stats - I am 35 years old,...

- Day of treatment
The surgery went well, but the surgeon ran into scar tissue from my navel piercing 15 years ago :(. I'm not sure how that will affect my new bb.
Anxious to get through today and tomorrow and start healing! It was more painful than I thought it would be, but I think I need to up my pain meds.
Any tips for sitting down? Once I am down it is ok, but the process brings tears to my eyes.
Thanks for the well wishes!!! I really appreciate it!

I am feeling good, but feel the pain at the end of the day. I know I over do it when the kids get home from school. Baby steps, but I am so glad I had this done! Best of luck to everyone having a tt soon and happy healing to others!

I returned to work today. It was exhausting, but I have an office job so it wasn't too bad. My ps said I could start working out again in 3 days. I'm not sure I will be ready yet. I am still walking hunched over! My ps is very liberal!
I hope everyone is healing well. I will post new pictures this week.
