All Worth It...- Fort Lauderdale, FL

Hi I have been watching this site for awhile....

Hi I have been watching this site for awhile. debating if I should post anything an I finally decided to do it. Im 29yrs old and a mother of 3, my kids are 9, 6, and 4. My last 2 pregnancys were c-sections and really did a number on my belly. Iv wanted a TT for awhile now but have been going through some weight issues. Im 5ft and was as big as 180lbs. I was going through alot at that time. Then through stress alone I dropped to 145lbs, I absolutely loved that weight but couldnt maintain it. For the last few months iv managed to stay between 155 and 160, so it was now or never. My cousin got her breast done at South Florida Center by Dr Alexander and he did a great job. I had my consult with him a few weeks ago and we decided on March 13 for my surgery date. I take care of my kids and paralyzed boyfriend so his family and my mom have decided to help while I recover. Im grateful for them. Leading up to the day iv been very nervous. But iv lived with this discomfort for far to long. Never been able to wear what I want, dealing with uncomfortable girdles, and just feeling down about my appearance all the time. Im about to be 30 and just want to really feel myself.

I did my surgery yesterday and coming out of surgery I was in so much pain and coughing like crazy. I wont lie I cried a little because I didn't know where I was or what I jus did. Getting to the hotel room I immediately took my pain pills, slept a little. When I woke up I did my breathing treatment an got up and walked around and snuck a few pictures. I brought my sister with me to help and to be honest I havent really needed her. The pain is manageable with the pills and iv been able to get myself up, walk around and use the bathroom myself. But after seeing my stomach it was all worth it. Im still swollen but can see the difference an know it will look great once im completely healed. I have my first post op today so I will be back on to update.

Its been 5days since my TT and the swelling is...

Its been 5days since my TT and the swelling is really depressing me. I haven't had a bm and was feeling beyond bloated so my mom gave me MOM and prune juice which is working to well. Iv been on the shitter all day. lol. As far as the pain, iv limited taking the pain pills to twice a day, morning and night. I didnt like the side effects and I was falling asleep literally in a middle of a conversation or in the middle of channel surfing. Overall im happy with the results because iv been reintroduced to my vagina whom I havent seen in 8yrs. lol. but I personally feel that my waistline could be slimmer. So I guess I could be happier...

Congrats and happy healing

So its been 1week and 4days since my TT and Im loving it. Im still swollen but the joy I feel when I put on my panties on and its not covered by my huge stomach makes it all worth it and only you guys can understand that. lol. I went to my week post op and had my drains removed and it wasnt what I expected, I didnt feel a thing. Iv been off my pain meds since day 4 or 5, im not in pain jus abit uncomfortable but I can handle it. I still cant walk straight up but slowly im getting there. Its been an emotional rollercoaster but my mom has been helping me every step of the way an im so grateful for her. I woke up to my period, bloating/swelling an feeling worn out but I managed to get up and take some updated photos. I also got measured for my new CG and can pick it up tomorrow, does anyone know how long I have to wear it? I heard 3mths. Besides the girdle im just ready to get back in the gym and lose the remaining 10 lbs I didnt get to lose before surgery. All in all im happy, ready to get my sexy back and feeling Blessed all around. I wish everybody a speedy recovery an for those who havent done it yet I wish them luck...
