Small Children and TT - St. Louis, MO

I am 36 and have two small children (ages 2 years and 9 months). One of the things about the TT that I am most concerned about is caring for the kids after the surgery. I will have help for the first week, but my kids are very "mommied" and are always on my lap, in my bed, and, just, well, ON ME! Do any of you have experience with a TT while having small kids at home?

Ordered my pre and post op vitamins today. Still trying to get childcare ironed out, as well as my own post-op care ironed out!

Does anyone have a name/site for one of the crotchless support garments that I can use post-op? I really think I'd prefer to NOT have to peel a binder down each time I potty! Thanks!

I had my surgery one week ago today. In my opinion, TTs don't hurt at all....liposuction HURTS! Honestly, I haven't needed really anything for the TT (pain wise), but the lipo on my back was so painful! Day 3 post-op was my "worst" pain day--I just couldn't get any relief from any meds. So, I called the ps and he told me I could take Motrin and, once I did, I was a whole new woman! :)

Now, I am just "annoyed" with recovery. I'm bored, I'm so tired of needing someone with me all of the time to help with my kids (especially the baby, since I can't pick her up), and I am just ready to get back into "normal life"! :)

I hope all of the other June 15th TTers are doing ok? I know I am SO GLAD it's done, and I'm sure you all are too? I will upload pics when I can.....
