Very excited to find this website. Thank you for sharing your stories and pictures- It has made my wait easier. I am pretty nervous and very excited about the procedure. One of my biggest concerns is my energy level and how I feel when I return to work. I will have two full weeks off and then will work from home the third week. I have a BIG sales presentation 31 days after the procedure. I hope I am back to myself then!

I go in tomorrow at 8:30am! I am actually more relaxed than I thought I would be. I think I realize it is too late to change my mind. I have a few more things to take care of today, but for the most part I am ready. I have my Christmas cards ready to go, most of the shopping done, and everything I will need is in tote bags so my husband and/or mom can easily grab things. I do not get to stay over night after my procedure so the house must be organized for my wonderful helpers!
One thing that has really surprised me is my husband! He is actually pretty excited! He told me he loves me just the way I am but wants me to be happy.
I am open to taking a "happy" pill tonight if I start to get nervous. Thanks again to everyone that posts updates here. It is has been so helpful to see your journeys. I was not going to do before and after pictures but I understand how important it was for me to see all of you so I will do the same. I will post before pictures later tonight.

A big thank you to the ladies that suggested the Contour Backmax! I did not order it until Saturday so I arrived after my surgery. I was in the recliner the first two nights and switched to the Backmax last night. It was amazing! I am sure this is TMI but I started to pass gas this morning and did not feel a thing! I did have bad dreams last night- that seems to be normal from what I read about the 3-6 night,
I go back to the PS today.If I have an update i will give one but for now it is pretty uneventful.

Slept great last night - LOVE the Contour Backmax. I had a lot of bad dreams but still felt very rested this morning. I had to go to the PS today to have then adjust the pads from my lipo. I finally looked at my stomach today. I am very happy with the results. I really want to take a picture after the drains are out but maybe tonight I will take one and post it. I got on the scale today and it says I am up 3 lbs from Monday. Part of that could be the pad and binders but I was disappointed to see the higher number. I did have my first BM today LOL so funny that this is an "event" after TT. I was going to have my mom buy something to help me along but I guess I don't need it now.
I have started to back off the pain meds. I am not sure how to do this but I was thinking trying to add several hours between each dose until I am off them by Monday or Tuesday. My plan is to continue them until I have the drains removed and the dr thinks that will be Monday.
Posted pictures. Still a lot of swelling but I am...

20 dpo and doing good- but something very strange happened this morning. When showering I noticed a tender spot when washing my "private" area. Sorry--- TMI but I am worried. I soon realized I have two swollen lumps under my skin to the left of my rectum. They feel like swollen glands. I tried to find information and anal cancer came up every where. I don't think that I would have two lumps show up overnight if I had rectum cancer. So- I am wondering is it possible that this is just part of the TT and I have swollen glands or nodes? I have never had a hemorrhiod before but I am sure that is not what this is. It is under the skin and not "inside".
I ended up going to the ER today after speaking...

Please send some positive vibes my way and hope this goes away with antibiotics!
