I had my pre-op today and my surgery is on Thursday. I'm petrified. I feel selfish for doing this as I have two little girls ages 4 and 7 and I want to be around for them for a long time to come. I'm 6 feet tall and slender build but as a result of my two pregnancies and c-sections, I have a potruding belly.... I spend my life buying clothes that hide my tummy area. I'm looking forward to feeling good in my clothes and not being so self conscious of my bulge.
