I have three children and despite working out and eating well still had a tummy. I also have hypothryoidism that did not get treated until this year. I did the tuck yesterday and the pain is bearable today. Yesterday I thought i was going to die. Today is so much better. My husband has been taking real good care of me. I am happy that I did this just cant wait to see it.

day #2 post op. All I want to do is sleep. i dont care about eating. I get up walk for 10-20mins and then take a nap, very weird for me.

PO day #3 was okay. I went grocery shopping with my husband and then clothes shopping for my children. I stopped taking the Lortab during the day. I only take it at night. I finally had a huge bowel movemnet. That made me very happy.
PO day #4. I am a little more tired today. Still only taking the Lortabs at night. My daughter is helping me fold the clothes. I like that I am feeling more normal. I am swollen a little today. Oh well I wore jeans today.

Day #5 I went to Church today. I am very tired. I...

Day #5 I went to Church today. I am very tired. I have really bad gas and some swelling.

Day #6 stitches out, okayed to do light exercise and go back to work. The stitches coming out wasn't so bad.

Day #7 did the the treadmill at 3.5 and went up to an incline of 8 over a half an hour. then the elleptical for 30 mins. felling okay. just so swollen.

Day #8 I am back at work. I could use a nap. I hate this swelling. Need it to go away.

Day #9 Today I discovered that on the 16th straight hour of work that 15 hours is plenty. The swelling sucks and I want to go home.

Day #10 I slept 3 hours and back to work I go. Today wasn't bad. I walked for 38mins on my lunch. This swelling needs to go. I would be so happy it is going to go. I am just to pray to Jesus that my body absorbs this extra liquid and have faith. I love the way everything looks so far. I think I will burn this binder when I am down with it.

It is 2 weeks +3 days and I feel so good. I am wearing a spanx type garment and am no longer wearing the abdominal binder. The swelling is so much better. I am so happy with my belly. I am lifting weights again at the gym. I am walking at my presurgery speed. Work is so much easier. The only problem is sleeping. That is just because I am a side sleeper and have to wake up to switch sides and that isn't fun. Otherwise it is so good.

Today is day 21. I love my belly and having my waist back. all my pants and shorts will need a belt. Work is easier. sleeping is getting better. I even went out without the spanx type garments. that just felt weird. My husband and I are going to Jamaica in 11 days. I went tanning today to get a base. I covered both scars and used a very liberal amount of sunscreen. I really fell good.

Today is day 26 almost 4 weeks. Everything is so...

Today is day 26 almost 4 weeks. Everything is so good. I thank God for that. I am healing and absorbing the the extra fluid so fast. I was able to jog for the first time last Wednesday, boy did that feel good. Today I did fifty crunches. I have pushed stretchers at work and helped move patients. I feel like I am 90% back to pre surgery strength. The only complaint is the stupid spanx. I can not wait to be done wearing it. It is so constrictive. 6 day untils my trip and only 3 more days to work.

Well it has been eight weeks and I am so happy...

Well it has been eight weeks and I am so happy with my new tummy. I am working just like before the surgery. I am working out at almost the same level, It is just a little less intense. I am doing sit ups and crunches. I went to Jamaica with my husband and wore bathing suits with confidence for the first time in my life. I went to a water park and rode down water slides, which I was a little worried about. It was fine no problems. I have a little swelling still but nothing to complain about. I think I gained weight this last week due to intense PMS and carb craving. I need to get that under control. Overall I am very happy.

It has been eight months, since my surgery. I love...

It has been eight months, since my surgery. I love my flat belly and skinny waist line. I love everything about it, even my belly button.The scar is starting to fade, and I cover it when I tan. I ran a marathon in October, finished with a faster time then last time. Which is great, because of less training time. very awesome, This is still the best thing I ever did.

I still love my tummy, but I just added breast...

I still love my tummy, but I just added breast implants to my surgeries. So know I have breasts and a flat tummy. How awesome is that. I did it 3.5 weeks ago.I feel pretty good. Amazing.

Dr. M is very good. He is straight to the point and that makes him seem a little curt. Great team and Dr. M is awesome with the anesthesia.
