I've always struggled with my weight going up and down as much as 100lbs at times. This of course has left my tummy and surrounding areas with alot of stretched out skin. I'm currently 5ft 10 inches and 212lbs. I'm not at the weight I wanted to be prior to having the surgery; however, if I wait for the perfect weight and perfect time to coincide I'll never get it done!
I'm quite excited about the upcoming surgery but find myself in a little bit of disbelief like it really isn't going to happen. I also feel a little guilty for doing it putting myself out of commission for work and my children. I have arrangements all made for both but still find myself feeling guilt...must be a woman thing!
I would love feedback from others as to what things I should ensure I have on hand, things to expect etc. I have been reading other reviews and seem to have discovered that almost everyone feels discouraged at some point afterwards mostly due to swelling. I'm hoping keeping this in mind prepares me better for it.
My spouse will be off the same time I am to help me out with my care and my children so that will be a big help. Apart from that I guess the countdown is on :)
Wow....I'm going for my surgery in 4 days!...6am...

Only complaint is lack of communication on how payment to the hospital could be made and where to make it.
