How exciting - new babies are fun. It is so interesting to see their little personalities develop as they grow. I have two daughters, one has two girls (the teens) and the other has two boys (age 5 and 11). The boys are SO different from the girls LOL. The 5 yr old is deaf, and has cochlear implants and what a huge difference they make. He wouldn't warm to me before getting them, now he does, and talks a blue streak. And yes, returning them to their parents is a good thing! The 16 yr old was disappointed she couldn't get into my new clothes - they were too small LOL.. Glad to hear from you.

Hi Ladies!!! :) I'm so very happy to hear that all of you are doing so well!I feel pretty good too!I am walking for about 30 min everyday(I used to exercise a lot before sx but I have to take it slow now).I have to confess that today I went shopping and although I'm obviously swollen(today it was all over, above and below BB),the stuff I tried on looked so CUTE and that's dangerous lol on my pocketbook!It feels great to not have that nasty jelly belly lol anymore :)You're so right NanaMakeover, I'm 50 and so wish that I would've done this a long time ago, but hey we finally did it and like Cherylin Walla said, thank God He allowed us the means to do it and I pray for all of you, for continued great healing and that He gives us great health to feel good and enjoy our new looks and for me, to use my health in any way that I can to help others, for I am so grateful to the Lord for His blessings!! Have a great weekend and let's try to post pics soon...I'll have to catch myself on a "not so swollen day" lol

My PS said after 2 weeks I was cleared for light cardio (treadmill, bike, swimming & stairmaster) & said I could start light weights at 4 weeks (OK I'm starting a couple of days early), and can do whatever I want after 6 weeks. I still want to lose a few pounds & tone up some areas. I can't believe I waited until my 50's to really start taking care of my body. Always wanted to look this way but wasn't always willing to put in the work. Doesn't make any sense -- I guess that's where the wisdom comes with age?

Hi Lovelybones. Glad to hear you're doing well. Walks seem to help with my swelling. I know everytime I go shopping my belly seems flatter the next day. That can't be good for my pocketbook, though. I've been doing a few lunges at home & today I'm starting back with arms & shoulder exercises with just 1-2 pound weights.

Still waiting on thos pictures. ;o)

Hi lovelybone1,
how are you doing? i can honestly say that as of yesterday (its been 4 wks) I actually feel good. I went to my PS appt yesterday and he told me I dont have to wear the binder anymore...yaaaay!!! and i went to walmart and bought one of their shapewear brands that is firm but not totally constricting my breathing lol That changed my life! wow! what a difference. The other one I was wearing from Marena has zippers on the sides and they were welted into my skin.I still have swelling under my belly button but like you said, it's part of the deal. I'm healing pretty well i think. PS told me to start putting ScarGuard on my scar twice a day (bought it at Walmart also $27). I'm really watching what I eat (mostly protein, veggies and fruits, trying to stay away from rice and bread) so that i dont ruin the work my PS did. It looks pretty good :) and i'm very happy with results. How are you feeling? Keep me posted.

Hi lovelybone 123, I am 50 and 4 weeks po. This site has been amazing. Although I'm at the "swell hell" part of the journey and some at times I feel like it's never going to go away...I also see how great my tummy looks and remind myself of what it look like before. The swelling can mess with your head, so we have to hang in there! :)

Hello lovelybone 123, I am 57 and 5 wk postop from TT. Wish I had known about this site BEFORE TT LOL. I'm glad you are on the healing side of the procedure and hope you are doing fabulous. It's a very exciting time as the swelling subsides and the new you emerges.

Glad you are doing well. You will feel even better once the drains get out and/or you can shower. I was able to shower as soon as my pain pump was out (3 days) and my boob drains came out 7 days postop & my hip drains 10 days postop. Keep in touch.

Congrats! I'm on day two as well. I saw my teeny tummy yesterday, though. It was amazing! I haven't looked that flat since I was 18!

I hope you love your results!

I turned 52 in Nov. & I am having my TT, BL & BA tomorrow morning at 7:30. I think it is so great that we can choose these surgeries at our age & not catch too much grief. Not too nervous now but we'll see how much sleep I get tonight. I was originally going to go home after the 6-7 hr. procedure but decided to spend the night at the surgery center. I think hubby is going to spend the night too. My review isn't posted yet but should be soon. Good luck with your surgery. Isn't it awesome to have loving & supportive husbands?!!
