Hi everyone, I am a 33 year old mother of a wonderful 8 year old boy. I've been wanting to get a tummy tuck since after giving birth and realizing all the stretch marks I had. Last year was a a very tragic year for my family and I. My loving husband passed away from a brain aneurysm unexpectedly at 37. Our plans and family were destroyed overnight. His year anniversary was just on Monday .

I made the decision to finally do this for myself in January. Found a doctor and scheduled the procedure. My emotions are mixed, excited, nervous...just want to pu this behind me. I will keep you all updated! Wish me luck!

Why am I not able to upload photos?

Omg! Honestly didn't think it would be this painful. My dad had to practically carry me in my house. Sitting on my recliner and feeling better now. Have myndoc appt tomorrow. Will post before and hopefully some afters after my appt for sure.mhave taken two of Pain meds so far and have not made me sleepy. Hopefully I can sleep tomorrow. Worried about my son seeing me like this when he wakes up. Glad it's behind me though.

Ohhh what a journey...I'm 10 days PO and feeling pretty good. still very swollen and feel sore, but really starting to feel like myself again. Almost walking completely upright at this point. drove my son to his little league game today (first time driving since surgery) and no complaints. start work again on Monday so hoping that my swelling goes down a bit so that i can possibly fit into some work clothing. I'm so swollen that nothing fits. so depressed.

Well it's almost 4 weeks post op and physically...

Well it's almost 4 weeks post op and physically I'm almost back to normal. I've been working since 2 weeks post up and have been really tired. Not happy about my results yet, but hoping the swelling starts going down soon. I will probably need a scar revision as I think my scar is pretty high and not straight. My mons is sooo high and still so swollen :( hoping for the best. I still have stretch marks thought most would be gone. I feel bigger then before surgery and it stinks. I feel like other tummy Tucker's results at 4 weeks are way different and swelling not as bad. Just have to wait and see what happens. I'm starting scar therapy on Monday and hope it helps with my scar.

When did you all start seeing significant results? I know it takes months and I need to be patient, but I feel like I still have loose skin in my abdomen. Also loose skin where lipo was performed. I wear a CG all day just take off to shower. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for all your feedback!!!
