I have been wanted to have a TT done for years and it's finally happening. I plan on uploading before pick as soon as possible. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Prayers are welcome too!!

Wow! Its my second day post-op and I'm feel good. Since waking-up from surgery I have had some pain but nothing extreme. Thank God! I was really expecting the pain to be a lot worse. I had a hard time with anesthesia and left the surgery center feeling really nauseous. Besides that the pain felt more like I had done an intense work-out of sit-up & crunches. The drainages are not as bad as I expected either. Thankfully all thus far is well. I have to see my MD on weds for my 1st post-op visit. I try to get out of bed often to walk around the house and also try to stay sitting-up either in bed or on the couch. My Mom & Dad have been taking great care of me. My sisters & other family memebers visited yesterday and I sat on the couch and felt pretty good. It does hurt to laugh and I am walking around the house bent over but overall I feel good & exciting about seeing the results.
Thank you Kimmers25 just posted my update...happy to be a part of Real Self and sharing my experience. I will try to post pictures soon. Thanks for the support and God Bless!

I am three-weeks post-op and doing well. I am feeling better every day. The girdle is extremely difficult to wear. But I am trying my best to wear it as often as possible. Overall I have not been happy about the way my belly button looks. It looks big and does not look like an innie or as natural as I had hoped. If anyone can give me advise on it or words of encouragement it would be greatly appreciated. I have been told by my PS that it will shrink with time and after a discussion (which felt more like a heated debate), He told me to wait at least 5-6 months post-op and he will try to fix it. I still have stretch marks and did not expect to lose them all since I had an excessive amount above my belly button. I guess bottom line I am happy that my stomach it tight and flat and that my jeans are fitting much better around the waist. Since my pants were always tight around the waist and I had a muffin top since having my daughter 4 1/2 years ago.
