Count Down - Tampa, FL

Surgery is scheduled for July 12th. Tummy tuck,...

Surgery is scheduled for July 12th. Tummy tuck, breast lift with silicone implants and lipo. Getting a little nervous. Starting my list of "to dos" today. This forum has been very helpful in answering questions and providing me with questions to ask my doctor. The things I wouldn't have thought about until faced with the situation.
We have the same ps~I'm on for July 3rd....super excited.

2 week countdown

Only two weeks to go! I am so excited yet I have so many questions, thoughts and concerns. Pre op is July 9th and surgery is July 12th. I have four children 22, 17, 9 ,9. Yes, I have twins ;-) arrangements have been made for the kids, lift recliner is ordered and today I am going to buy the items listed on here for after surgery.
I have definitely been feeling like I shouldn't spend all this money on me, it's way to much etc. emotions are all over the place with that. I am just so excited. The 12th can't get here soon enough.
I know what u mean about emotions all over the place. I guess thst is normal along with the money spending~but it's time to do something for us.

I week before surgery

I am so excited! I have all my supplies that I'll need, lift recliner is ordered, twins are going to my in laws and I am ready ho get this done, I've waited almost ten years for this.

7 days and counting

This time next week I will be on the flat side!! Can't wait!! Excitement is all I'm feeling! I just turned 40 in may, have four kids (22,17,9,9) yes their twins. I have also lost 75 pounds over the last two years. So, yes I'm a little nervous, but excited out weighs any other feelings!!! Pre op is Tuesday, July 9th and surgery is July 12th!!!! ;-)

8 hours till I'm on the flat side!

Well, if I could just shut off this brain and get some sleep. Nerves are actually really good. I think the excitement is winning out. I am so excited... I've waited a long time for this and it will be in less than 8 hours ;-)
Good luck dear-see you on the flat side :D

Made it to the flat side

I did it!! Less than 24 hours after surgery and I can honestly say it not to bad. The worst part is getting up and down. My hubby sets the clock for ever 4 hours for my pain meds and so fat so good. I take my pain meds about 30 minutes before I get up to walk. I think that really helps. Good luck to everyone!!
Tampa Plastic Surgeon

Beautiful office with an awesome staff. Dr. Castor spent a lot of time answering my questions and concerns. 4 days post op and I can truly say Dr. Castor is amazing. Pain is very manageable, incisions are very thin and look amazing. Taking only Advil on day 3 post op of a mommy makeover. He is amazing!! Called on Saturday to check on me and the discomfort.
