I have secretly stalked this...
I have secretly stalked this site for several months and am now ready to commit to this journey. I am a mother of two and (13 & 6) had good size babies. I was 105 lbs when I conceived my son and he was 8 lbs and 11 oz. Needless to say my stomach took the shape of a kangaroo pouch. I have never been unhappy with my weight (139 now:)) however I am completely disgusted with my stomach!!! I work out regularly and nothing happens!! I usually only do toning exercises like pilates or Zumba and I still seen no results.
I was only last year that I was talking to my doctor about it and she recommended that get a consultation for tummy tuck. At the time I was living in the DC area and had consultations with some good doctors, unfortunately, my husband received orders (Military) and we had to move :( Therefore I had to start the process all over again!
I have a consultation tomorrow with PS...I'm totally excited and scared at the same time! If any one knows of any good PS in the Pensacola area I'm open to suggestions. I'll try to post the outcome of tomorrow appt.

I had a my consultation with a prospect PS today. I felt at ease with the PS, however I was surprised to find out my quote was more expensive here than in major a city like DC!! The quote was about $1300 more. I have another consultation next week....maybe that's the going rate in a small town. I will post pics hopefully tomorrow:)

So here's the latest update. My PS will be Dr. Leveque and I am scheduled for April 7, 2011. I will have a full TT with no lipo...my Dr. said I don't need it. My original date was March 28th however the hospital overbooked. My pre-op appt. is March 16th. Any tips or suggestions on things I need to ask or request? Thanks ladies for the support.

I am 10 post-op today. I still have my drains so I still have alot of swelling. I am regaining sensation in my tummy...starting to sharp stings in the lower part of my stomach. I had a bowel movement of day 5 and boy I tell ya, it was easier pushing out a kid. I am still not walking completely upright but I am getting around much better. I'm not taking any pain pills, I do sometimes need the muscle relaxer at night. I would not say that I have a good nite rest yet...I'm sure that it will come with time. I have not attempted to drive and I probably won't for a couple more days. I think I will feel more positive about my recovery once the drains are removed. Hopefully that will be tomorrow (please, oh please). The surgery went as planned but no matter how much I tried to prepare for my recovery I still feel that it was not enough. I am having the hardest time just sitting here and recovering. Crazy huh? I am so use to managing my household that I forgot how to be managed...I have posted a video blog and will continue to update my journey through there and hopefully here. Congrats to all of you on your road to discovery.
