I cannot wait to have a full TT on March 10. I am going to DR and having it done by Dr. Hungria. I am only 5'2"and weigh 250 but feel I carry it well EXCEPT for my baby belly. I don't mind if the rest of my is on the fluffy side,I just don't want to not be able to fit in pants because of my lovely 'gunt'


Good luck ma

I am here

I arrived in DR at 4am and as soon as I was out of customs etc. my driver was there to pick me up. I was driven straight to the clinic and given a room. Pre op was done a few hours later and surgery is scheduled as planned for tomorrow a.m. So far this experience has been great. Sure there were some fears along the way, wondering if this was all legit or I was just gonna get robbed and left for dead (sorry ,it did cross my mind) but all is well :) I will update asap after surgery


Good luck. My prayers for an easy surgery and swift recovery.

done and done

So I was 1st to go in this morning and was surprisingly calm. I had an epidural but was put out before it was even put in. Overall the pain is less than I imagined, I can't feel the incision and only where the drain is feels like a stinging . the rest just feels like I did a billion sit ups (upper stomach) if anyone has any questions,ask away and thanks to everyone who wished me well


I am way excited to see our results ;) How are you feeling about it?

your rather, not our. Well yeah mine also just 34 days from now lol
I have been trying to sneak feels under the girdle but really no idea what to expect. I will get pics later today when the girdle comes off for a bit

1 day post op

Please don't hate me those that had a lot of pain but thankfully I really don't have any. My back hurts from having to lie in bed so long but that's it. It may be another story when I have to be up and moving in a bit but hopefully not


Oh I'm glad for you. I'll have to get Bromelain. Any other advice would be really appreciated as I'll have to get back on my job a week post op. Happy Recovery Time!!!! Please post pics when you're ready.!!!

Sorry if this is TMI but bring something to help you poop(softener or laxative) When I went I lost about 10 lbs in sweat because I was so constipated
When are planning to come back home? Just wondering for how long you will b there. Congrats!

I'm not gonna lie,I hate today

I have cried,been angry and wonder why I did this. Last night and today have been rough. I can't sleep more than 2 hrs a night because I am so uncomfy on my back and I hating being useless. I walk for 1 min then need to rest. Please tell me this gets easier :( sorry. Im a whiner today


Hey hun. I was the same! Please don't worry. Read my blog and you will see what i mean. Mine only lasted 2/3 days. It was after the heavy pain meds wore off i think. It will pass. I'm feeling so much better now. It's a roller coaster of emotions for most of us. Once your moving about and doing a bit more you will start to feel better I promise. Hang in there. Think of the results! Healing hugs x

Thanks for the read and well wishes. You look AMAZING
That's my biggest fear. I wanted to stay there for a month, but I can't. I feel it's unsafe to come back so soon

day 5

Drain came out today and I moved on to next stage garment. Its tight but feels very supportive. I was afraid of the drain removal but there was no pain,just a very odd feeling . I will post pics once I am back in Canada. For some reason my cell won't let me :)


It will get better sis hang in there can u post pics happy healing suga

going home tomorrow....

I have to say that I am feeling better but that may be because I finally slept a full night. This numbness is grossing me out though,such a weird feeling. As much as I destest this garment,I don't feel the weird numbness when its on

finally some pics

I was having trouble uploading pics from my cell but have finally figured it out. I have posted another before and then today's. Healing gets better and better each day but I CANNOT wait to feel 100%, I still tire very easily


Your results look great!! May I ask if he did any lipo? How would you rate the clinic, your stay and his bedside manner? I may be going to him now that he's personally come recommended. It's such a switch since I had my mind around Cipla and another Dr. I pray this finds you well and wish you a speedy recovery.
