Finally picked my PS and scheduled my date for December 20, 2012. We usually close the office in December so I thought this would be the perfect time to recovery at home. I had done a Rhinoplasty in January and went back to work in 3 days. Then in August I got upper eyelid surgery and went back to work in 3 days as well. This time I want to recover for at least 10 days. As you can see from my belly it is ugly ugly ugly. I hate it so much. I work out so hard (5 days a week). 3 days a week I do boot camp and 2 days I do spinning. BTW I'm 55 years young, I'm 5' and I weight 138 lbs. I'm trying to lose at least 10 lbs before surgery. I'm trying to eat less than 1,000 calories a day. Now that I finally scheduled the surgery, I'm excited. The doctor told me not to have unrealistic expectations. I'm very wide (thick). Repairing the muscles will help some but I will never have that skinny little waist some people have after surgery. He said there's no fat so no lipo is necessary but I do have almost a 4" gap (muscle separation). Thank you for this site. RealSelf ladies are REAL. I love it here. I'm addicted to this site and it has helped me so much to make this decision. I will keep you posted and God Bless all the wonderful ladies on this site.

PO 2 (Dec 21) started getting the worse heartburn ever. Pure hell. Dr changed my medication to Vicodin. Only took pain meds first 2 days because I couldn't swallow the pills. They would get stuck and I couldn't swallow them. So I tried crushing them up and putting them in a smoothie. I could taste the awful bitter taste, so I stopped taking them all together. Days 3, 4, 5, & 6 were just as bad. Couldn't get comfortable, started an annoying cough and still was not able to swallow water without choking. Now here I am day 7. So So much better. I can drink water without chocking, my coughing has subsided and I finally went to the bathroom. Ladies please take your stool softener. I finally had the sensation to go so I went to the toilet and nothing. It took me sitting in the toilet for 1 hr and then finally yelling at my husband to go buy me some something to make it easier to go. And then relief. Took a great warm shower and now I am finally relaxing. Thank God for my wonderful husband. He deserves a medal! Hope everyone's recovery has been better than mine and Merry Christmas to all. More pictures later.
