Today is Post-op day 1. Minimal pain & I look amazing already! Everyone at my doctors office helped soooooo much!!! From the front office to the surgical team, everyone was amazing!! At 44, I decided it was time to get rid of the fat I had been carrying for the past 23 years since my daughter was born. I only occasionally exercise but I walk all day at work. I think having this procedure & seeing how much better my body looks will be a major motivation to exercise more. I signed up for Zumba classes & started two weeks before the surgery. Can't wait to resume when I've recovered. As far as the surgery itself, I can't remember anything from the moment I walked into the surgical suite. The anesthesiologist gave me something & I was out cold. Remember waking up in recovery in minimal pain. Had a lot of nausea though that lasted the first 30 minutes. Since then it's been smooth sailing.
It's been exactly 23 hours since the surgery & I've only had to take 3 pain pills. My JP drains have very little output - about 45 ccs together in 19 hours. I already feel like a new woman!!! Will post pics today. Well worth it!!!!

:-) No more oversized shirts to hide my tummy! Returning to work tomorrow after being off for two weeks. Anxious to see if anyone will notice that something is a little different. I walked around the house for 2 days last week wearing nothing but a bikini & my compression garment. Lol. Even with the compression garment, my hubby thought I looked pretty hot! Yep, its been totally worth it! :-)
