I am a mother of 2 teens. Soon to be 32 yrs old. My first girl was over 8 lbs. and my boy was 10lbs and 22 inches long. I went up to 265 lbs after I had him which nobody believes because I never took pics of myself that big. Now I am 185- 190 lbs and 5' 7" aprox. Yes...I have stretch marks all over my belly. NASTY!!!!! I like to excersice 3 to 5 times a week at least an hr but it is harder and harder to tone. Hate the way my clothes looks on me. I am really excited to get it done...I can't wait but it is what it is...I feel confident because my ps did tt to somebody else here( real self).....

OMG!! Woke up realizing that my tt is schedule for a lil over a wk away...Yay...I'm starting to get exited about it. Today is not going to be easy. I have to take my kids to the mall and I just have to deal with the fact that I can't buy anything for myself. That's all for now. Happy healing....

I can't believe it......my time is coming....
Thank you so much everyone. I was really calm all this time and the nerves just hit when I took my antibiotic couple of hrs ago. That's when I realize this is not a dream....I hope all of you are healing great....and this is FYI.....my friend got a tt in Dominican republic and lost 20 lbs in 2 wks with pineapple, cucumber and celery, put this in blender with a lil bit of H2O and drank that every morning. It helps with the retention of fluids.....I am ready 4 this ...Happy healing...

Hello ladies. Today is my 2nd day post op. Feeling sore. I had a ps appt today and he said everything looks good. Still have some stretch marks but at least is better than before and I can see my tushy now. I can only take tylenol because I'm allergic to vicodin. LIke 3 yrs ago I had another surgery and I was allergic to pain med they gave me. I guess is my body. My PS told me I'm the 5th patient that he injected with something to numb the muscle area that last around 3 day. The pain I get is mostly gas. Had a shower today. Will post pics one of this days.......Happy Healing...
Hi Mary, I hope you are feeling ok after your surgery and that ot went well. Good Luck and Happy Healing!

OMG...finally 3 wks and I am feeling amazing. I can stand up straight. I'm still in swell hell but my ps told me it can be that way up to 6 or 8 months depending on my body. I can be standing all day and I don't get tired. I try not to do much around the house but it is only my hubby and I and the house don't get messy. And I forgot in the mornings I get like a cramping sensation around bb area but it's not pain. I hope everyone is in a good track of healing....God Bless.

fyi...I am not deciding yet if is worth it or not. In a few months just to be shure.

Finally I am posting the 3 wks pics....but I am close to 4... Happy Healing

Finally today I am 4 wks post op...feeling good....

Finally today I am 4 wks post op...feeling good. Just swollen by the end of the day. Next time I go to PS I will remark that at the end of my insicion ( each side) I have a lump that if the insicion was longer that would be gone. Let see what he tells me. He is a great PS. I have not started any tx for scar and you can hardly see it. I think the trick was that he glued it and that I do not pick on it. I am letting it fall off by itself. Other than that. 5 stars to him and his team. But I am not changing it to worth it until I am completely heal...Happy healing to all...

Hi ladies. I went to see my ps today and everything looks great. He told me to massage my insicion to make it soft. I talked to him about my concerns with the ends of the insicion and he told me to wait to see how things go and if he need to fix something he will. I can exercise now but keeping in mind that if I can't do it right away not to force myself. Well, I walked today 3.2 miles, not bad after soooo loooong and I feel good, just the swell hell but that's nothing new. I will return to work next Tuesday. Yeap I had to wait this long because I work with Hospice and there's no light duty when you are out for medical leave....Well that's all for now. Happy Healing to all of you and soon to be in the flat side...
I knew one day I was going to meet you and nothing better than PS office...you look great too.....Happy healing..
