50 & Nervous About my Tt Proceedure - Plano, TX

A little over a week away from my surgery and I'm...

A little over a week away from my surgery and I'm getting excited but I'm also nervous. I'm not nervous about the surgery itself, I'm nervous about what the results will be. Also worried about how good my husband is going to take care of me after the surgery. He's not really keen on the idea of me having this done. A lot of family and some friends are not too excited about me getting the surgery done either. They think I am crazy and foolish for spending the money on something like this. Has anyone else had this experience with family or friends? I have been wanting the surgery for more than 10 years and I'm doing this for myself, so I'm not gonna let anything or anyone ruin it for me. So glad I found this site. I'm seeing a lot of posts that are making me feel more comfortable. I will post more closer to my surgery and of course I will post more after surgery with pictures.

Almost 2 weeks post surgery

feeling great starting to look much better every day still a lot of swelling but am totally in love with my new body. I will post pics when swelling goes down more.

13 days post-op

Here is a pic of me 13 days post-op. Still swollen, but getting better each day.

Remember you're doing this for YOU! A year ago when I first started to seriously contemplate a TT I jokingly mentioned it to some of my friends and family. They all reacted in horror that I would do something so risky and stupid! So I said "just kidding". Now, a year later I've decided to do it but I'm not telling anyone. My husband knows and two friends who have also had TT's. The people I associate with on a regular basis have no clue. It's my body, and my money and if I want to do something like this for me then it's really none of their business. It'll be interesting to see if anyone notices a difference after I've recovered. If they do I'll tell them I've been on a strict, low carb diet! Good luck! You're going to be done before me!

I am having similar reaction from my husband. Its more like he is afraid of something happening to me. He had talked me out of it this past weekend. I was ready to cancel my TT today that I've wanted for 15 years. I thought about it all day and decided I need to do this. I would regret it for the rest of my life if I didnt do it now. WE re going to feel and look great!!
