Hi. I'm 5'1 and now weight 148 pounds from a weight loss of 35 pounds. Mother of 5 kids and terrify of having this surgery but I know it needs to be done and can't wait. From reading everyone's story here I love the support you all give yourself and that's what I need a support system. I'm having lipo, tt with mr, and breast lift with possibly ba. We will make a final decision on 3/7 when I go in for my last pre op. my surgery is scheduled for 3/9 @ 8am. Anyone on the same date?. BTW how do I update my story here as the days progresses ? Thanks.

So my date is coming soon and I can't wait, my...

So my date is coming soon and I can't wait, my sooooo scared, I've never gone on surgery before and now I'm getting everything on one shot. The 9th is just around the corner....I'm so scare!!

Yesterday I had my lat pre op. and I love my doc, all my exams came back normal, the payment is in. I'm being placed on a full body girdle including arms. I'm getting lipo only in few areas because my ps says I don't have much fat, and what I have is mostly loose skin, so he's doing lower back stomach, inner thighs and flanks a bit, muscle repair,tt, bl with a reduction reconstruction of them and inject my butt to show a lift. I go in tomorrow 3/9 @ 8 am. So after today 8 pm I cannot eat or drink. I also have to take a shot on my belly at 8 pm tonight and that is to prevent any clotts I believe . I have to take an overnight bag because I have to stay in the facility for the first night with round the clock nurses. I'm very excited and can't wait. Yayyy. Good luck and God bless all that are going in as well.

Yesterday I went for my 1st po on my 3rd day po. Still have all 4 drains but he gave me a muscle relaxer pills. Hopefully that will help.
I then had a bad night up at 4 am. And today I was even crying. I know it's all normal but it's just soo scary and painful and uncomfortable specially for someone of no major surgery to have had all this done at same time.

I can't even post pics of my before because I don't know how to.

So today Saturday I'm 8 days po. My 4 drains were...

So today Saturday I'm 8 days po. My 4 drains were removed on Wednesday that was 3 days ago . I was very scared it will hurt but It didn't hurt at all. I did feel the bottom 2 at my pubic area come out. I was afraid of them getting stuck but they didn't . In 2 more days I have another po visit and they said they will remove my stitches, I have not seen my scar because it's been bandage up, but at this point nothing to do. All that is uncomfortable is my back because of the lipo and my butt due to the butt lift my wonderful ps did. Lol

So my last stitches were removed yesterday those...

So my last stitches were removed yesterday those were the ones on my bb and the back were I had lipo. I feel great...I have some sweeping for, time to time but the lymphatic massages really do help. It has been such an experience and so far I still feel like I made the right choice..it's only been 2 wks po and I'm still swollen but SO far I like the way the clothes fit...and the incision is a very thin line.

My breast still ache all the time...I'm down 13...

My breast still ache all the time...I'm down 13 pounds since surgery but I'm still swollen. :( . And I'm so very tired of this burning feeling in my tummy that I'm not sure if it's because of the garment.
