Just to update i have 6 kids ages ranage from 4 to 16, i have wanted to have TT for yrs i have went up and down with my weight after having kids 2 yrs apart... finally i started working out and achieved the desired weightloss, but the results of the extra skin are not complementing!! so i decided after a lot of thought this is what i need to make me like me and feel comfortable in my own body. so im sooo excited and nervous my date is nov 20!!

Well I can say from my experience in the last 23 hours... Do take pain meds on the hour or 10 min before its a huge difference!!! I had severe pain all day only because I was only taken one pain pill every 3 hours so I wouldn't get nauseated but the nurse called to check up and advise me to take 2 pills or I will end up in more pain today because of surgery meds wearing off!!! Now I am able to get up on my own and walk to washroom.... My nurse that is helping me ( my 16 yr old daughter ) kind of forgot mommy needs assistance and put pillow over head to block out noise! Hahaha me calling her please get me this... And this or move this pillow here ... But all good she is a wonderful helper just not early morning. So my mom has been amazing help!!!! Ok meds kicking in talk later congrats to all us beauties!!!!
So it's 3 days post op felt sick all day! Still...
So it's 3 days post op felt sick all day! Still have pain tried to get off meds but ya no that's not going to happen yet.... I have had 6 kids and laboured for long hours and was induced for 5 of them but that pain does not compare to this but not trying to scare you ladies who are about to have TT but just stay on meds!!!!! And you will be comfortable with barely no pain!:) good luck and I would do it again! I just can't wait to see the new tummy!

And have others wait on me that's very weird anyone else feel that way? And omg so itchy! You never realize how many muscles we use to do the simplest thing like dress yourself, or brush your own teeth! After all that and washing up its like bedtime all over again! I just can't wait to see what lying underneath this contraption thing they call a binder! :) ok so getting very sleepy talk again soon good luck girls on your recoveries!

Seen my tummy today all the bandages are gone still have drains til Thursday but I don't know what's up with bb why it looks like this and I was told to keep garment on and not to touch or apply anything! Is this normal? Any ladies have the same response or look? And it feels so weird like one of those stress balls! I hope this changes within a few Wks or even month! Will my bb look normal????? :(

So can't believe it's going by so fast it's been ok off and on good and bad! But I would have to say so worth all of it!:) it just seems I get very tired after standing for about an hour... Is that normal? Just getting little ones ready for school and my back was in so much pain and I could feel my tummy starting to swell! But it was so worth it.. I miss my kids so much even though they are here with me it feels different that I'm not doing the normal things each day with them:( but today meant so much it made all us happy:)!!!! So now just resting until appt to have drains removed very nervous about that hope it's not to bad. Well good luck ladies with your recoveries and upcoming surgeries!

Santa can be the stocking stuffer supplier! Lol well hope all you ladies are doing well. I will post more pics once I see some difference in swelling! Oh had drains removed and ya didn't like that at all! Ugh! That was the worse part for me so far.... But hey stitches come out on Monday so hopefully that won't be as harsh!

Sorry not much to talk about today pretty much the same with swelling but getting better... But that seems like nothing when I'm sitting here in tears with what has happened to all those innocent children and teachers! It's horrific and I can't even imagine the pain these parents are going through... I myself have lost my 2 yr old baby, but not in this type of tragedy!!! To have someone hurt your baby is I just don't have any words for this the pain for you to lose your child is like you have died inside yourself.... It's going to be so so extremely hard for the parents to recover and heal my prayers are with all if them! Take a moment and give your babies extra love and hugs and kisses we all need to be so greatful for each and everyday we have with our families!! Goodnight ladies prayers!
So hi all you beautiful ladies!!!! Hope your...
So hi all you beautiful ladies!!!! Hope your recoveries are going great and your loving the new tummy!!! Not much new swelling is going down more, I just notice it's nice when I wake but after about 2 hours I'm back to swell hell!!!:( but its all still so worth it. I'm doing my normal things I had done before TT just at a slower pace. So just getting ready for Christmas making sure all the last minute things are done:) I posted new pics! Later girls have a great day!!! :)
So finally hit the one month mark! Tummy is...
So finally hit the one month mark! Tummy is looking better!:) but I get swelling fast hope that don't last long:( but my only concern is how my incision looks.... On one side kind of hangs a bit over I was told it will go down and smooth over so here's hoping!!! If not i will just get it fixed. So the incision has little sections of scabbing which are starting to peel off ewww! Lol I still have to wear binder all day and night which feels better anyway. Well not much else to catch up on just preparing for Christmas. So hope all you girlies are recovering well... Good luck to the new girlies just starting out in the TT journey!!!! New pics! 4 Wks post op

So lets see sorry I've been off for awhile!! So results of my TT are getting better each day.. My incision line is great at first I thought OMG! Someone help me! But doc was right it went down and is ok looking.... The only problem is I need revision which I was already thinking I would need even before surgery I wish my doc just went a bit further with incision line and I might have been able to deal it incision! Not sure if you ladies feel the same but now I notice so many more FLAWS!!! Ok so where did the huge hip roles of fat come from didnt see that with the sagging tummy in front now it just dont look right having somewhat of a tight tummy to have the sides and back all mushy!:( But I have got a plan!!!!! :) what is it you ask? Well I was thinking doc said its no problem he will fix the dog ears in office with some freezing! What... Cut skin with just freezing! Ummm no I'd rather not so I decided I will get breast augmentation!!!!!! Yaaay so that way they can fix the dog ears and go back further towards back and maybe lipo and then I get new boobies I've been small in that area all my adult life and its even worse that I nursed all 6 of my babies and the longest was for over one yr! I go for consult on Thursday:) I just think to pay all this money I want to be happy with end result and if I'm still insecure then it's not what I want to just have to deal with! So I hope I'making the right decision! Hope all you girls are happy with the results so far! I've been reading a lot of post and your girls are so beautiful and your results to me look amazing!!! Just want to say good luck to the new girlies with the new you surgery!!!! IT'S SO WORTH IT!!! But I've realized PATIENCE is the word! Later sisters!!!

Hello ladies!!!!! Hope you are all doing great! So I have some good news that wanted to share.... I had my consult today for breast augmentation!!! It was the funniest thing my ps comes in room and starts talking about the procedure and asks what size bra do you wear! Omg! I was like confused because I don't have really any bras that fit so I usually most of the time wear sport bras! So I tell him that and he was like smiling! And after I change in to gown so he can determine which size to go to he tells me your an A cup! It's was funny... I guess maybe you had to be there to see why it was kind of funny... Ok I'm rambling! :) so I got all the info I needed and I'm going with 339cc silicon under muscle partial and round which I researched and is the most desired. So my date is June 4 and at that time he will also fix the TT incision I have dog ears on the ends ugh! I never though I would ever get augmentation but after the TT it just completes the makeover and I will feel more confident about my body! Well that's all for now I just wanted to share my news!!! Later ladies enjoy your evening keep healing!! And stay strong!

So it's almost 9 Wks post op and I'm so upset with what is looking like results...that I will be left with I have so much extra skin all over tummy I can pull it :( my hips are so flabby I can't see my feet when standing straight I have that lower tummy pouch not sure why! Ugh! I have flabby tummy when sitting its rolls... And I'm so sad! Paid lots for this for what to look and feel like its a waste and I have to have revision on the hips because of dog ears! And when I bend forward it all hangs down! It's like I need another TT! I will post pics if you can please tell me what you think???

Hi girls just wanted to say thank you all for posting and helping me feel better! I had talked to my ps nurse today... Well funny thing is they called in the morning to re schedule my BA til end of may! But I'm going away the beginning of July with my family to Grenada :) so excited for that! So the only date available is march 5 so I took that... But only if he is going to help with my issues I'm having from TT or I will just cancel it all with him and I will have to look for another surgeon to hopefully help! So girls sorry for complaining but is it just me being picky or do I need to have more skin removed? I posted a few more pics! Please let me know if that is what it's supposed to look like after full tummy tuck and muscle repair? Thanks so much for listening:)
So it's been a few days since I've posted but I...
So it's been a few days since I've posted but I have made appt for next week to talk with my ps about my concerns... It's do weird my Tummy changes with each day one day feel 6 months preggo and others just a bit of bloating so I have made myself to not put to much stress on this problem until the 6 month mark but I will bring it to my surgeons attention to make sure we are on same page in terms with my expectations since I am paying for it! I'm not trying to look like Barbie but I would like to get the tight tummy I paid for and not have so much loose skin all over the front...mind you it was looking really good but it just started to look more loose as the swelling subsides! Well thanks for listening ladies hope all are doing well! Thanks for all the kind words it has helped so much! Have a good night!!! I posted a few new pics I think I'm like 9 or 10 Wks lol
Ok so today was my appt with my ps and wow all I...
Ok so today was my appt with my ps and wow all I can say is I'm so happy I explained that I wanted revision and he at first didnt understand for what and why? Because my results we awesome in the beginning! But within this last month that's when things started to change! So he says lets see ... And right away he say I totally understand I can see what's happening with loose skin your skin has very poor elasticity so it's now relaxing, so yes I agree we will do revision and I asked if he could do the extended he agreed! ( one happy girl) lol at the end of that conversation I asked how much will this Cost me? He said nothing! Don't worry about any of it at all! But he said of course I do have to wait 6 months from date of surgery so in April! And moving on to the new boobies lol that is scheduled now for feb 26! :) have to go in next week to look at pics to what I want or at least what I will try to achieve! In the beginning we were going with 339cc silicon partial under muscle mod profile... But today I asked if that will give me a full C and look natural (lol) he said I'm thinking maybe we should go with 380cc but I ask uh.. Ya won't that be huge and I'm gonna look like DOLLY lol:) he chuckled and said NO but said next week I will go back in and look at the photos to see what each size looks like so that's great! Anyway glad I could share that with all you fine ladies!!!! Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and words of encouragement it meant So much to me!!!! Have a good night girls and happy healing

Well hello realself girlies!!! It's been a few days since I've posted... So lets see about two Wks ago I decided to start insanity which I have done before so I though its ok I'm over 3 months but after doing the fit test my lower tummy in the center where old bb was pulled down well it was swollen and pink so when I went to see doc for pre op for BA I showed him he said it was ok! Well few days later it still was sore and pink and swollen but I noticed a purple vein in that area and it was becoming more transparent through my skin... Well yesturday it popped and it was bleeding so I was freaked cause it was normal skin it wasn't part of incision so the skin just broke not big or anything but it hurts and I'm just hoping its gonna heal and still not sure what caused that to happen... Oh and ya well ok so my husband came home for 5days as well and he works away from home so we don't get to see each other as much... Ok so we played a bit of house!:) but really could I have cause this? I mean we are not crazy freaks when together!! LMBO! Oh well hope it gets better i have to see ps in the morning to pay balance for BA which is one week from today!!! Woohoo and he's going to have a look at my little booboo:( later girlies hope you are all doing well!!!!

BA.... 2 days post op:( soooo much pain! Wow I can't believe how painful this has been... So I got to the surgical suite and vitals were taken and my ps marked my chest... Then I was off to O.R so I was pretty nervous hey were still setting up and they asked are you ok? You have this look of silent horror! They were trying to help me relax? I'm guessing lol so they tell me to hope up on table and they hook up the iv and blood pressure cuff... I'm thinking to myself I god what am I doing hope this is worth it! Hope I don't have a lot of pain and doc says ok I'm putting o2 mask take 40 deep breaths and when u..... That's it I was out. Next I remember the nurse saying its ok your all done we are in recovery breath... Calm down breath easy and I guess I was freaking out! But OMG the pain is horrible and I can deal with pain.. 6 kids all 9 pounds and a TT 3 months ago but this had been by far the most painful recovery ever! I have cried so many times in one day it's unreal and I'm taking perks and they make me so sick and out of it not really treating the pain .. Now I'm having fevers off and on I'm cold, I shake like when given epidural! All I know is the doc and other have said oh this procedure is nothing compare to TT! Ya I would have to disagree 100 percent!:( but I hope these girlies are worth all this pain! So I went with 371cc silicon round under muscle moderate profile:) I have posted a few pics hard to see they are all bandaged up... Later girlies I will post more pills are starting to kick I.n

Well girls just had to tell you all that after the pain I have been suffering from having the BA for a straight 13 days And my surgeon just kept sending me on my way saying I'm FINE! In this little bit of time I have seen my ps 4 times from pain and had been to the ER 2 well I will be quick cause of the pain and meds!!! So after I had came to er they said I have infection and a build up of fluid so the freeze with needle which hurt like a! And then he put another needle and pulled out blood not fluid I had developed hemotoma and for
That I got severe infection so they
Clean it up and I was sent home with meds! Well yesterday I'm sorry us girls we know our bodies and can tell when something is wrong so came back to er and after a few hours the had to call the ps (NOT MINE) and asked if he could come see me and told him what was wrong so he said yes and came in and within 30 min I was having emergency surgery! So all this started with a blood clot soon after surgery! That doc didnt see then I developed huge pocket full of blood now remember this had been sitting for 13 days so from that major infection! So I had the surgery late last night the opened incision had to remove implant. And flush the inside of my breast and replace the implant with new pocket cause the old one was wrong and way to high! And he had some others things to repAir but he will see me today and tell me more but now I'm in hospital. For several days on iv antibiotics to help get any bacteria out if my body! :( and I'm in so much pain even having a shot of morphine grrr ! All I want is to be able to see my babies I've been sick and in bed haven't ate much since feb26 this has been the most horrible experience ever! I will update when better later girls hope your all doing well!

Hi ladies wanted to say thank you all so so much for being here and your thoughts and concerns it has helped me feel better! I'm able to move today with little help I just have to stay in bed for a bit taking antibiotics for 7 days and got more meds for pain! Have to see ps on Wednesday... The nurse had called me in hospital asking if I indeed had the surgery cause the surgeon who preformed it notified my surgeon who apparently doesn't have rights at that hospital in which his site says he has rights at two! And he does not! Well anyway now they want to seer ASAP! Why now? They didn't care about me all the times I've cried and repeatedly told him how much pain I had and all the other symptoms that clearly indicates infection and blood clot! I've called numerous times I've went to er 3 times and went back to ps 2 with no one listening til finally I spoke up and made it clear i need to see SURGEON! And wow within minutes of seeing him I'm rushed to O R it only took 13 days for help!!! Great medical system we got here! So why all of a sudden does my ps feel its important to see me?.... Wait what is he scared? Cause I know they can't say it will turn out fabulous and then you don't like results..... But what they cannot do is avoid all signs of infection and blood clot putting lives at risk of possible death! Ok I'm done venting its over and I will work on getting better and research better! Happy healing ladies :) thank you again for being here!!!! Need to sleep now :) bye

Hello ladies!!!! I can't believe how fast the time has passed! I've been recovering and it flew by ugh! But I guess that's good since I'm doing better still have pain in the right breast from all the troubles I've had but I'm healing each day!:) I have appt on the 4 of April to talk about my TT revision which I think it's best to hold off until September since I've been put through so much pain with BA and having the severe bacteria infection I'm still on antibiotics my hemoglobin is very low turns out I'm anemic which is new to me great! But anywho I'm finally liking the new addition to my family my twins they are doing great sore and tight but I'm liking them more each day I went with 371 round moderate profile under muscle.... They are as of now D34! Woohoo! I was a A! Or sport bra lol:) so I'm finally uploading pics! Well not much else to say but glad to be back in here updated and sharing my journey with all of you! I wanted to also thank all of you for all your thoughts and kind words and prayers it has helped me through all of this! Thank you all do so very much!!! Later girls
Please let me know if these pics are upsetting or not wanted on here I will remove ASAP! I just wanted to share exactly what can happen with any surgery... Mind you it's very uncommon for this to happen well getting all 3 bad things like I did extremely rare! Just my luck!
Well here's another depressing update! So after my...
Well here's another depressing update! So after my ps said he would do the TT revision because of the skin becoming very lose... He had just told me to wait 6 months at least and we would discuss the plan... That was at the same time we were planning BA so I had told him in advance I wasn't doing BA if I had to worry about fixing TT he assured me it would be at no cost! So of course I trusted him and booked the BA now after all the horrible complications I've had to endure and still I have pain on the right side and the other breast now had completely bottomed out! So one is way below incision crease line out of my breast tissue... The right one that I had blood clot, hematoma, and severe infection causing me to have emergency surgery and they put implant back! That one is being squeezed by scar tissue and its getting firmer and firmer with each day it is also up higher. So with knowing that can you believe I go into his office on the 4 of this month and he says you look great! WTF! My breast are deformed one at end of ribs no shape at all and the other is hard and looks smaller... I said what! This one has bottomed out and it moves all over I can't even wear a bra! I don't have the crease for bra to fit and the other breast is way to high! He says I'm not going to touch that one! If needed later I will cut and release the other to match the bottomed out one! Is he for real! I said. NO! You will not touch that breast! I don't want bottomed out boobs! So I'm already upset and I ask what are we doing with my tummy? He looks and says ya well just looking at your skin it's horrible and doing it again it would just happen all over again! What kind of surgeon says that! I was devastated! I'm like 115 lbs! And isint tummy tucks meant for moms who have had babies and loose skin! Am I not a candidate for tummy tuck!? And now I have breasts that are horrible and causing pain that I have to get removed! And a TT that failed and my belly button is jacked! I regret ever going to this guy who calls himself a plastic surgeon! Board certified that is! My butt! So now I will see my family doc to be medically referred to a surgeon who can finally remove these implants! I will never put implants back that was the most horrible pain I have ever experienced! As for the TT I will do at a later date! So girls sorry for the negativity:) I'm over it and I've learned my lesson! Hope all you girls are doing great and recovering well if your new to this... Thanks for listening!:) nite nite ladies!!!
