I am 30yrs old with 2 beautiful daughters, 7 and 4. I am 5'4 and weigh about 138. I have to wear a size 10 jean to fit my belly and a 4 for my butt and legs so i feel frumpy all the time for having to wear clothes that are to big. I mentioned it my awesome hubby of 10 yrs and he agreed to let me go ahead with the TT instead of Lasik. I'm getting a full TT, MR and a hernia repair. I'm so excited, I can't wait!! . Hoping i can wear a cute little dress for my 31st bday in Aug :) The pics are horrible since i took them in my 7 yr olds room lol. Any prepping i can do now?

Okay, you're getting yours done on June 6. That's pretty soon. I'm having mine done on June 1 and I haven't done anything to prepare either. My pre-op appointment is today so I'll find out if there's anything I need to do. I'll be following along as well.

Good luck!! You will do great. I am 2 weeks post op today and have no regrets. Every day as I see the swelling going down and the hourglass emerging, it's like Christmas morning! Looking forward to following along with you

Today was the big day!! It went very well, my ps was awesome, I feel very comfortable with him. I was on the table for 4 hours the in recovery for a few more. The nurses did everything possable to make me comfortable. it hurts to move and when I was trying to sit up to leave I got very woozy and they had to break a smelling salt to snap me out if it ( a few times). Made it the hour ride home just fine, dh was awesome at avoiding pot holes and such lol. The ps and the nurses said I'm going o be very happy with the results :) I can't wait til I can move around again and not have pain. Now I am on the road ti recovery!! Good luck to the rest of you June tt'ers!!!!!

5 days po and i'm surviving :) I took my pain pump out yesterday and hat was very weird, felt it down to my groin! hoping to get my drains out tomorrow, they are a pita and the pull. yesterday hubbie re-wrapped me and we saw my stomach for the first time. omg i;m so excited with the results already! Biggest things that bother me are still getting up and down, ans the lavanox inj's. Getting up makes it hard to breathe and the inj's sting horrible.

Tomorrow will be 1 week since surgery. I've been really working hard to walk straight but right under my boobs is so tight. Today I got out to target but only made it one isle lol I was I tired. I tried in 2 dresses for my baby sisters graduation and was pretty excited:). I also got a shower today and omg did that feel good i was very scared to go near my incision, though. I am extremely sore and tired and wondering if I just over did it or it's normal, my back is killing me so bad!

Any tips on standing up straight??

Something that I find interesting is that everyone is saying there is a lot of weight gain from swelling and such but I've actually lost 6lbs...definitly not complaining

2 year TT,MR surgery

Today is my 2 year anniversary of my surgery. I am now 109lbs and a size 4 and my clothes fit awesomely (mostly lol). I'm thrilled with the outcome except for the large scar from where my belly button was, how thick the scar is around my new belly button and a dog ear on my right. Dr told me all are unfixable. After my surgery, the drs jovial demeanor seemed to change to kind of rude though.
