Hi fellow TT's, I've been following the site for weeks and reading all of your stories. I'm now days away from a body change that is way over due. I'm so anxious yet so scared at the same time. A little about me... I'm 40 and have two awesome boys ages 10 and 8 both were c-sections. I'm 5'1 and 120 lbs ... my ideal weight should be around 110. I gained 53 lbs with my first and he left me all stretched out. I'm having a hernia repair, full tummy tuck with MR and lipo.
I have a great husband but one who works constantly and has very little involvement in getting the boys off to school, to practices, homework or even bed. I handle pretty much everything, the boys, the house, my husband and a job. Because of this lack of help I've put off this surgery for the past 6 yrs. I just decided that he'll have to step up and handle things for a little while because I deserve this !!
Anyhoo, I've prepared and made lists. I've purchased all the items that everyone on here has said to get. I've made tons of food and have it all in the freezer. I still have to clean and do the last of the laundry but I think I'm ready. The nerves are another thing - I'm scared to death. My biggest fear isn't the pain but of not waking up. Does anyone else feel this way?? I can't stand the thought of leaving my this earth for a procedure that I opted for and that I didn't really need to do. Ugh... I'm driving myself crazy
Please give me any suggestions that you may have to help me through to the flat side. I appreciate you all and thoughts and opinions. I've posted a couple of my before (gross) pics. I look forward toward to not knowing my friend "Pooch" anymore :)

Please listen to what everyone says & begin stool softener immediately & eat fiber rich foods as soon as you're home. I don't wish that pain on anyone.
On another note, today I'm standing almost straight. My abs are still super tight and they try to pull me down. I can only do a few things then I need to sit down. My back is still bothering but not nearly as bad as a few days ago. Each day things get better !!! Happy healing my fellow TT's!!!
