Can't believe I'm in flatland....- Peoria, IL

Hey guys, I am 28 years old with four lovely children. My children are 7,6 and a set of twins that are 2. I've always had a little stomach but now I have an ocean wave. I never reallky cared about having the stomach until last year when I went to Jamaica and we were all getting ready to go until a beach party, and I'm the only one who had to a one piece swimsuit and a swimsuit cover. I wanted to get into a corner and cry. Every picture that was took I tried some way not to be in it.

So after that I started saving my money so I could have tummy tuck. At the end of last year I started looking for PS. I live in a small city so I decided I would have my surgery done in Chicago which is an hour and a half away. I found three different doctors and I schedule my appoinments for the following Friday. The first PS I seen I knew he was the one. I was so comfortable with him and his staff. I would never show anyone my stomach before this. But im ready to say good bye to this tide wave I call a stomach. Wow I never thought my stomach was that big until I took pictures of it.

I'm so excited I only have three more days to go!!!!! I am a little nervous tho. But can't wait until until I am in flat land.

Hey tt....I made it. I'm do happy I'm on the other side. My surgery was around 945 and I was out of surgery around 115. When I woke up I felt so sick, so the doctor made sure I got some good meds to help me out with the vomiting. They also gave me some medicine for the pain. They kept me in the recover room until about 630 pm. They took very good care of me. My PS told me he took off 23in and around 8 pounds. Yesterday my pain level was around a 4 after the meds. Today I have some soreness. So I'm about to take a pain pill and rest.ttyl my tt friends
