Tummy Tuck - Northern Ireland

My tummy tuck is scheduled on 3rd feb and I'm so nervous I feel sick constantly. I have never been under anaesthetic and I have no idea of how my recovery will go. I am 33 years old and have never been over weight. My tummy problems resulted from my first pregnancy 7 years ago. My gorgeous baby boy was born 6lb 3oz but I was the size of a house.

During pregnancy I had severe water retention that had stretched my tummy to is limits. I had my daughter 2 years later and then decided to join the gym and try and make the best of what was left. Unfortunately, my abdominal muscles were separated and I struggle to push a vacuum never mind do a sit up. My doctor recommended that I have the operation to bring the muscles back together and fix the tummy skin. I am terrified but hoping it will all be worth it....

Hi everyone. It's now 10days after the operation and I'm doing great. I have been very lucky that my husband has basically taken on the roll of a single parent since the operation so I haven't had to do very much. The first week was hard, not so much the pain but I was uncomfortable and found it difficult to sleep. I'm also extremely bored!
I have been bandaged up well and I go back on wednesday evening to get them changed and I'll get a look at what the scars are like. I still have a good lot of stretch marks but the appearance of my tummy is a million times better already. I'll post some pics soon.
