Excited and Nervous!! TT & BA - Oklahoma City, OK

Right now I am counting the days down until March...

Right now I am counting the days down until March 12th, I started dieting in December 15th and I have lost 19lbs, my goal was 20 before surgery, so I'm just about there, and I'm going to shoot for another 10lbs. I have had 4-Csections, with the last one going horrbily wrong I ended up horrible scars and tore up all the muscles inside and that was 9yrs ago, I'm so ready to be able to look at myself in the mirror, and not hate what I see. I chose Dr Garland Porterfield in OKC for my procedures, he did a mini tuck for a friend of mine and she loved him and suggested him. I feel good about him, he seem to really listen and cared about what I wanted and needed to look like when I am done. I have read so many womens stories, I have googled information about a million times. I'm just ready!! Any advice, or anything you gals can share to help get prepared for this, I would love to hear! I will post as I go.

Down 21lbs today!! Surgery is close!

Today is the 24th of Feb I am so excited about the date getting closer, I am so nervous but ready. I really don't handle pain very well, I've been reading all the stories, so many different opinions on the pain of a TT

10 more days!!! I can't believe Feb went so fast, I was thinking I had time to get all my business work and personal life in order, but now Im on the count down! Im so excited, I keep going back and forth on the BA, the TT it's really a necessary thing, because of all the damage that was done I can never have flat stomah, no matter how much wt or exercise I can do, but BA I guess my biggest deal is, is that vanity??? Vanity is wrong, that's how I was raised, but I have wanted a BA since I was 14. The doctor said I have to have a final decision by Wednesday, confused, I'm afraid if I don't I will be very disappointed, and if I do, what are my in-laws going to think (father-in-law is a preacher). Anyway any comments on that I would really like to hear.
Im down 21 lbs, can't seem to lose anymore, hopefully I can pull off at least another 5, 10 would be great, but I think I'm suppose to stop dieting before the surgery, not sure how many days before.
I enjoy each one of your journeys, each one has great information in them.
hope everyone is healing great.

8 more days!! I have been cleaning and rearranging all weekend its kinda like nesting when your pregnant LOL! I haven't heard from my dr's office, I thought by now I would have gotten something about preparing for the day, idk maybe I'm just stressing I do that a lot! Hope everyone is healing and feeling good

I've been reading alot of different stories and list getting ready, alot have Arnica on them, I'm not sure what this is, and my doctor said nothing about it, can someone tell me a little about it, I googled it and I see what it is for, but do you need a Rx for this, and why hasn't my doc mentioned it?? BTW all your list have been very helpful some things I would not have thought of. Any info would be helpful and appreciated.

I feel so much better about everything since I seen the Doc, this morning I was having some kind of issue, I don't even understand where that come from LOL!! DRAIN TUBES ARE GONE, doc said everything looks good and everything just has to go down and I will be flat!!! Boobs really do look good, I dont know why I thought they didnt this morning, I think this sports bra they give you seem to make them look smaller, I can't wait to go buy some sexy stuff!! Hope everyone is healing and doing good.

Well this is my last post since for some reason there are no responses, this procedure, best decision of my life, there has been hardly any pain, and it has been great, by breast get better looking everyday just took off the bra, and put on a shirt and they are going to look awesome. my stomach is flat and no pain the only thing I have is the muscle contractions, all I can say it is the best decision I have made, cant wait to go for the face lift next, Dr Porterfield is an awesome doc, and his work is great.
Hope everyone is healing and and doing great.

well ladies went to doc today, not good, my incision is now infected and and the incision under my left breast is also infected!! so they could not seal the incision, and breast incision had an open spot also that is why it got infected, yesterday they did not look infected, but today it was there, started me on antibiotics and sent some of it off for culture to make sure what kind of bacteria it is. Makes me wonder if they took the stitches out to soon?? they say dont worry that it happens.Guess that is why I just dont really feel good. so maybe now I will start feeling a little better when the meds start working. Hope everyone is having a great day

Felt really good, still disappointed with my boobs wish they were just a little bigger but they will do. Hope every one is doing good. These emotional rollercoasters are driving me insane LOL

Days are finally getting better, even with all the severe storms and in and out of the cellar with my daughter, I only hurt a little afterwards, but this morning I was fine. working 8hrs days, coming home doing the mommie stuff, house stuff all by myself, since hubby had to go back to work. Tonight energy level is pretty good. So to all you ladies, that are still having a rough time, I promise it does getter better and then all you have to do is worry about weight gain. But the pain, the infections, and the disappointments, they will heal and get better. Happy Healing, Prayers for all of you.
