Ok.. Ladies!! So.. I don't even know where to start.!!! I'm 27 years old turning 28 in two weeks.. A mother of 2 beautiful girls.. 7 and 2. Like almost all of u I was really thin before having my first daughter I was between 125-130.. After her my heaviest was 175.!! We'll so I decided to get on a diet and went Down to 140. Six years later I got pregnant again and gain all the weight back!! :/ soo.. After a year I decided to get on a diet again and started to workout everyday.. By the time I knew it I was at 138.!! But gained 4 pounds this past 2 months.. Lol.. I keep telling myself that it's ok.. Good thing the holidays are over so that I can get back in track.!! Well long story short.. I've been considering a tummy tuck for a year now I went with 4 different doctors one here in Texas.. But the price was to high and saw the other 3 in Mexico.. I live just in the border from Mexico.. A small town named Roma Texas.!! Lol.. Ok.. I decided to go with Dr. Tomas Garcia Farias. I have not scheduled my surgery yet but I'm planning on doing it by the end of February or the beginning of March.. I'm nervous and excited.. I'm getting myself ready mentally and physically.. I have my husband support and I'm really grateful for that he is my rock.!! I would love your advise and tips to make my journey to the flat side a more pleasant and blessed recovery.! Thank you ladies I will keep u posted.!!!

Hi Pililo. You'll do fine. You wont even remember when you fall asleep with the anesthesia. Stay relaxed...if you are too anxious ask your doctor to give give you something to calm down. I had my TT 7 weeks ago in Tijuana and so far all is going well - healing has been very slow but well. Good luck :)

I'm so depressed right now.!!! :( my husband is being so annoying!!! I don't know what to do?? He's telling me he's scared and don't want for me to get my surgery done.!!! And of course money wise.!!! I hate it we had already talked about it.!!! Why is he being like this??? I hate that I can support him in anything I'm always there for him.. And now that it's my turn now that I need him the most.. I want his support and his company his being an ass.!!! I've been eating like crazy I don't care about my diet anymore it's like I don't care if I get fat again.!!! :( it's so deppresing I'm even getting drunk right now.!! This is not what I expected not from him.!!! :( I even what to cry right now as I'm writing.!! :'(

OMG... My surgery is set for the 25th.!!! I'm sooo.. Excited!!! 2 more weeks.!!!! ;D
Hi girl i am too having my TT on the 26 in Mexico. I was a bit discouraged after speaking to my primary doctor she straight out tools me i could die! I know and understand the risks however I'm bummed. How are you till this day feeling? Were you able to get any blood tests. Doctors here don't want to do it because of liability and laws.
Reply
I just told my doctor I was doing my yearly checkup and if I could have copies of my blood work. Don't let them discourage you the doctors also study in the us. And are just as experienced as any other doctor.

Hi.. Well my doctor send me my lab papers thru email.. And I live in the border from Mexico so I just went over there and got them done.!! But he actually send me 2 one in English and one in Spanish.!! And don't let what your doctor told u get to u.. Anything can happen even if u get it done in the U.S.!!
