I had the surgery and everything went fine. The best part was finding out that, number one, it wasn't cancer, and number two, they couldn't find anything on the ovary as the ultrasound depicted, so they just left everything intact. I was planning on having the tummy tuck after I lost another 20 pounds, but since I needed surgery I decided to go ahead and have it done now. I had lipo of the flanks and the abdomen. Doctor said he took off six pounds. I had Dr. Copeland. When does the burning go away? That about takes my breath away everytime I stand up. Other than that it is mostly just a little uncomfortable. I have been doing a lot of little walks hoping it will heal me faster. Hope things are going well for you. How are you feeling now? Thanks.

Welcome to RealSelf Cindy!

Your day is coming up quickly and I bet you are getting excited. 

Congratulations on the weight loss; that is wonderful.  I know you worked hard at that one.  I have also lost 70 pounds and know that it feels great.

My two procedures were the lipo and tummy tuck together.  My  ovaries came out years ago.

Keep us up to date on your procedures and let us know how you are doing.
