Goodbye Tummy Hello Sexy! - Pompano Beach, FL

I am a 30 year old mother of two. I have never had a flat tummy, but after giving birth to my daughter I have gotten worse. I gained 50lbs while I was pregnant with her and it did a number on my stomach. 4 years later, I conceived my son and only gained 30 with him. However, the damage had already been done. I've wanted a tummy tuck for it seems like forever, but I could never time it correctly because I am a teacher. This was actually a last minute decision and I am nervous about my recovery time, but I hear it is so worth it. My surgery is scheduled for Monday, August 6th. I have to return to work on August 13 for preplanning which consists of a lot of meetings. The kids will return on the 20th which is my bday!! I am just hoping that I will be in a good place by then. I enjoyed reading most of your stories and I welcome any comments or feedback. Thanks for reading and following me in this great journey.

Hello Ree. Wow returning to work on the 13th may be a challenge. That is when I had the most back pain. I'm 6 weeks PO now and I still find it hard to sometimes stand up straight. This is a major surgery and you will have drains for at least a week. For the first couple of weeks you will have to rest. Good Luck to you and let me know if I can be of any help to you.

So my hubby just informed me that he is flying his aunt in to help us for a week. That's great news. Guess he was getting a little overwhelmed about taking care of me and our 2 small children. Secretly I think that he just wants her good home cooked meals lol. Finished most of the cleaning and organizing. Still excited and hopeful.

I feel like tomorrow is the first day if school lol. I can't fall asleep to save my life. Please think good thoughts and say a special prayer for me. Truth is I'm getting a little nervous and thinking how it wld b terrible for my kids if something happened to me while doing an elective surgery. Gotta shake off the bad thoughts.

Ok!! So I had the survey yesterday and everything went well. My pain level is mainly a 3 and I can walk around a bit hunched by myself. The thing that is killing me is all this darn itching. I forgot that anesthesia makes me itch all over when it's wearing off. Besides that, I'm good. I will try to post pics later.
