well its almost here and i just wanna get this show on the road!!!! All my pre op test came back great. I am to arrive at the hospital at 8:30 on Monday and to come home on Tuesday. Prayerfully everything will go great. I will enjoy this weekend playing lots with my 2yr old son and of course Trick or Treating sunday so that should keep me occupied and my nerves at ease! I will update soon thanks all the support

Good luck tomorrow Jodielynn, you will be fine. I had mine done two weeks ago this past Friday at Mass general in Boston. I think I was more nervous about the recovery than I was the actual surgery. Anesthesia is a great thing! It will all be over before you know it.

post op day 8 so i stopped the pain meds on day 3 feeling really great should have drains removed tomorrow hopefully all of them. I did have to call the PS today because i have a bad burning sensation on my skin on the top of my abdomen its not red i dont think there is infections its just very irritating it comes and goes he says it may be the nerves and tendons healing but as long as i'm not running a temp i should be ok and we'll check it out tomorrow

i dont even know if you will see this but you look absolutely beautiful! congrats on weightloss and surgery. i stumbled on your site because of a tooth absess that came on about 13 days pre op and i am taking an antibiotic! hoping all goes well.

I am so happy to see you had a positive outcome on your surgery! You look awesome! I was wondering if I could get the name and place of your dr. I am also looking into a tummy tuck...the price is what's holding me back the most (although I am a little nervous too I won't lie!) Is 2800 really what you paid?! Thanks!

How long before you noticed your scar starting to lighten? I feel like that is never going to go down or lighten. Does your stomach ever look blended? I still feel like it will always look like it's in two. I think I'm being to paranoid :)
