I had my first son at age 17, at 20 I had twins, my belly is saggy and though I have never gained weight,I'm very self conscious about my belly. It's been thinking about a TT for many years, but there was always other priorities. Finally after 22 years, my TT is scheduled for July 5th in New haven, CT. I trust my doctor 100% and I'm confident he'll do a great job. I'll post the before pics before surgery. I'm so excited!

it's been 18 days. I went to the beach on Saturday, It was really nice, I was careful with sun and heat and lucky me it was not humed or extremely hot so I was fine after the shade. I was really tired when I got home and slept like a baby. Yesterday we went to the movies and must have caught an stomach bug or something and I threw up everything I ate during the day, which it wasn't a lot, since after surgery my stomach seems to have shrunk of something but I fell full with very small portions, even better right??
OK I know I said this before but, I'm running out...

I had a doctor's appointment today, everything went well, except that where the left drain was there's a hole that it didn't close properly, so the doctor said that he wants to repair it, but we have to wait 3 more months because it's still healing. I trust my doctor so whatever he says. I'm still swollen and he said I have to be patient. He took the tegaderm off and I have to leave it that way for 3 days and then put a new one on, after that I have to change it every two weeks. He gave me the ok to go to the beach and go in the water I'm so happy! I just need to avoid the direct sun on the incision. I don't have to wear the CG anymore and he suggested that some people wear spanxs, but I don't have to, only if I want, if I feel more secure. Well, that's the update, my next appointment is in two months. happy healing everyone! I'll be posting pics as soon as I can.

I have heard only good things about Dr Restifo, my friend saw him on TV a while ago and I've seen pictures of his work, I can't wait! Now that I already saw the incision I see he wasn't lying when he said it would be low! I'm very happy so far.
