I'm 38, 120lbs and have 4 children, after talking about it for years i finally decided in August that i really need to do something about my loose saggy skin that makes me feel crappy in clothes. Surgery was scheduled for Jan. 9th, 2013.
Tues. Jan 8th
Anxiety has hit home really bad and i'm almost wanting to cancel surgery. I cleaned the house and cried, cleaned had anxiety and cried and continued to clean. I took a break and brought kids to movies but couldn't watch i was so nervous so i texted the whole time. Got home and continued to clean. At midnight i took an ativanto relax me and help me fall asleep.
Wedn. Jan 9th
Woke up at 6 a.m., took a shower, blow dried my hair. As i said good-bye to each one of my kids i was over whelmed with tears in my eyes. I arrived at the hospital at 9:00, the nurses were fantastic. They tried so hard to calm me down but nothing they said worked so finally i recieved my pretty white pill. Wow i was a different person within half hour. The docter came to get me at 11:00 and all i could ask him was "did you eat and drink i don't want you to be hungry?" lol..... he giggled and marked me up. I did remember to ask him to go as high as he can with M.R. . 5 minutes later i walked into O.R., layed on table and waited. When PS walked in the nurses asked him where he was and he said "my patient old me to eat and drink" lol.... everyone giggled. The mask went on and i was out. I woke up smiling, glad to be alive! Left hospital around 9:00pm in no pain just uncomfortable. I did get sick though and that wasn't fun. Couldn't sleep all night or the next day, Oxy's i guess keep me up. Took 1 oxy every 4-5 hours and wiened myself off by the evening of day 3. Still no major pain. I was also taking my surgery pack my natural path Dr gave me (arnica, bromelain etc..) I do think it helped the pain also.

OMG......TMI........ but after 7 hours in labour an enima and suppository i finally had a bowel movement, what an awful day! Worst part of this whole surgery so far. Drained me out and didn't feel good the rest of the night. Again very little sleep.

Worst back pain ever! I can barely feel MR but man does this pain take my breath away. Had a clog in my drain and my husband milked the line. It felt so wierd. I only have one drain and it was removed the next day. I was so scared because i read so many people complain about it hurting when it gets pulled out. I didn't feel a thing, i was worried for nothing.

Wed. Jan 16th
I was cleared to shower and did it ever feel great having the warm water hitting my back. The docter said i was able to start straightening up but its hard to do. My husband took me to Micheal's to get a few things and back home we went. I couldn't sit still so while my Mom vacuumed my main floor i dusted whatever i could reach, an hour later my body told me to sit. Tomorrow i'll be back to sitting around all day.
Swelling is really bad in the evening but i know it's normal and i know it's to early to complain about it. I'll try to post pictures. I am so happy with Dr and the way i look so far!

When do you really know if you own dog ears? I know i'm only 10 days in but i have a fatty spot ontop of my right hip and not sure if swelling needs to go down or if it's a dog ear.

What can i say not much has changed since my last post. I'll have a couple good weeks and then i have a week of swelling. Swelling gets really bad during my period. It's funny cause just in last week i have been getting a popping feeling in my right muscle everytime i breath in deep. It's a really funny feeling, maybe everything is now waking up in there? Anyone else have this? I've gained 4 lbs cause of my poor eating habits and no motivation to work out, so to feel better i started tanning but have been putting a towel over my belly. I'm so happy i did this!!! Now i just need to get some motivation to get back to gym and lose 5 lbs. I keep looking at my before pictures and think why didn't i do this 7 years ago!
