The 2 Week Count Down! Can't Wait! - Rockville, MD

Its the most unusual feeling of being scared but at the same time I can't wait for what I am scared of. I am posting before pictures as this is the first step in me walking in my freedom. Not even my loving and very caring boyfriend has seen me in this light but oO well here goes nothing. (see pictures) On June 24th I will be getting a full tummy tuck with lipo something I have wanted for years.

I am a mother of 3 boys the youngest of which is 13 and the oldest is 21.

I will post pictures as I have found them to be a great help so welcome to my journey. I have posted pictures of what I look like in clothes or my disguise as I like to call it because you would never know the horror that was underneath them. LOL

So here are my questions for the pros that have been through the tt

1. Should I try to lose any weight during this time?

2. What should I eat after surgery?

3. Is it unreasonable to believe that I can go back to work in 10 days?

June 17, 2010 OK so I woke up this morning thinking I am at my one week mark when I got a phone call from my doc's assistant asking if I would like to do it on Weds. instead of Thursday!!! Jumping up and down I said sure why not... So I am 6 days away from my big day can't wait!!!!

Ok so I am 13 days out and all I cam say is WOW WOW I can't believe how smooth and painfree the recovery is Must have a high tolerance for pain or something but I was off pain meds by day 3 the only complaint is the emotional rollercoaster that I have been on I was feeling so well I was doing way to much so I still have my drai in and i have put myself bedrest because I want this thing out on Tuesday when I go back but right now I am still putting out to much fluid I have pictures but my computer charger is broken and icant upload pictures from my iPod so pictures coming soon.

July 7 I am felling GREAT! I am super pleased with my results so far I went to the doctor on Tuesday to see if he would take my drain out but he didn't but I went to work anyway I couldn't take another day in the house in the bed. So I am trying to get under 30cc's of drainage I did 30cc's in the last 24 hours so I hope he will take it out tomorrow. I didn't expect to have my drain in this long but its not a big bother only that I couldn't shower for so long until Tuesday when the doc told me to just go ahead a shower YEPPIE!!!!! it felt soooooooooooooo goood. Ok and now the moment of truth below i have posted my after pics of my jearnory along the way and hopefully I will post a picture tomorrow of me without the drain. *fingers crossed* and plus I am running out of things to wear to hide the drain LOL Ok enough chat here you go!
