Going in for TT in 2 DAYS!

Well thinking about this for a really long time, I am finally doing something about it! I have had 3 emergency Csections and it was not the "bikini cut" type of incision. My scar runs from belly button to pubic area and has always made me feel self-conscious. Last year I ended up having a bowel resection due to endo and because of that, 5 months later was back in for a total hysterectomy (a year ago in July). Needless to say 5 abdominal surgeries has made my stomach pretty much of a train wreck. It looks like I have a minibutt! (yuk) So I researched and back in February met with the only woman board certified PS in my area. I felt very comfortable with her and went back in May to schedule the surgery for this month. I will be going in on Tuesday. I'm not really nervous about the surgery (been there done that!) I think it's more of a mindset thing where I cannot even imagine having a flat stomach...I've had the "minibutt" for so long that it's really hard to imagine myself without it! It's been so helpful to read about everyone's experiences here! I'll post more of mine when it happens!

Well tomorrow is the day...so weird to think about...

Well tomorrow is the day...so weird to think about...I keep looking down at my stomach trying to imagine what it will be like...hard to do! My surgery is 8 am (so I won't be tooo grouchy w/o my coffee;-) ) I'll try to post as soon as I can.. (and pics too)

Well it's done! Weird to say the least...pain...

Well it's done! Weird to say the least...pain was more than I thought it would be, but it is definitely manageable with the vicodin. Hurts to get up, but as I move it feels better. Just took the binder off to put a tshirt underneath and wow! the minibutt is gone!! Not much drainage really; I got back to the dr. on Friday.

BTW I forgot to mention that I also have fibromyalgia
