Ok here goes i am 176lbs 5ft 4. I have lost alot...

Ok here goes i am 176lbs 5ft 4. I have lost alot of weight, had 3large babies, 3sections, hysterectomy and to say the least my abdomen ruined..
I had a gastric band 5years ago and had only trouble with it..it has been empty 6months and isn't irritating my stomach now but where the port is just above belly button there is a protruding mass yuk!!
Went to see dean Boyce last night in Swansea and he said I need port removed to get a nice finish without it poking out..he said he could ask a bariatric surgeon to come in and remove it but will cost me double for 2surgeons.
Eeeek and he couldn't fit me in till next summer 2014 as I need school holidays as work in a school. But I wanted it done this summer. Well I found a surgeon who is bariatric/cosmetic at my local private hospital bridgend!! I got a consultation next Tuesday with him!! Hope he can help me.. I am getting married in Cyprus on 25th July this year and really would of loved tummy done on my return as still have 4weeks off work..
Hope all of you are ok I have been reading for around 3weels now ?

5to2 diet

Hey I started this diet 2weeks ago as I'm trying to get bmi down to 25-28 before wedding/op..
Well it's great you eat normal for 5days then fast for 2..it's also great for heart disease, diabetes,strokes it puts your body into a repair state and your organs start repairing by using up fat stores while fasting!!
I lost 4lb first week and then 1pound and half this week..
Very good way of life and don't feel like a diet.. On fasting days I have lots of energy and have cranked up fitness from once a week to 5a week..

VERY DISSAPOINTED

Hi everyone
I am on a downer as I went to see ahmd hassn the bariatric/cosmetic surgeon and he said he will take band out this year and next year i can have tuck done..I dont mind keeping the band in as long as i cant see port protuding. Well the 1st surgeon I saw sent me and my gp a letter stating he had spoken to his colegue bariatric surgeon and its advised I leave it in as 2procedures have many more risks for the abdomen.. He has referd me to his colegue on the nhs so god knows how long that will be..Not going anywhere fast!!
Head banging as dont know what to do and in waiting again..

Congratulations on your weight loss and decision to get plastic surgery! I also had a significant weight loss, and subsequent lower body lift with fleur-de-lis incision. It has been life changing! I wish you the best of luck on your journey!

Where did you have your surgery?
I had my surgery in New York....I am 10 months post lower body lift. My surgeon has since moved to Toronto.

Surgery All booked

Hi all I have booked my tummy tuck with lipo and mr and also gastric port removal!!!
So happy as I'm staying home in UK and having surgery in sancta Maria hospital Swansea with dr dean boyce!
One of the best surgeons in Wales..
It's costing 2thousand pound more but I feel a tummy tuck is a major op and after care is paramount.
Hope all of you are doing well..
Surgery is on dec 18th..

Feeling AMAZING

seen surgeon he said there was a mess on abdominal muscles they were stretched to maximum!! They were open/separated about 6inchs. He sewed them back together nice and tight.The scar tissue from 3sections and hysterectomy tissue was like nothing he'd seen before! He's removed my gastric port and the total amount of skin removed was 7lbs he said he removed a hell of ALOT of skin..I gave him a run for his money Girlies!! Pain is not as bad as I expected!!

But turned out to be Severe trapped WIND...well girls/boys if you go through that then I sympathise with you I really do!! It was a million times worse than tt pain..just had peppermint water so fingers crossed bunnies.. Any handy tips appreciated as no doubt it will happen again!!

I am drinking 3-5litres of water been taking arnica,folic acid,iron and calcium! So to any of you questioning yourselves about tt please don't it's changed me already and only early days..sending positive vibes to you all and thank you

Please take it easy, don't forget to do those lung exercises. I can offer advice on the heels of you feet, I found that placing a pillow under my calves so that my heels are off the bed that that helps a lot, for the bum you may want to try flex your butt cheecks every now & then, this helped me a little. Hope that helps, take care & happy healing!

comfortable now

I am in my big bed and I have 6 pillows behind me and 3 under calfs im all cwtched up and feeling good!
I have an ensuite bathroom so dont need to use stairs. I have made a record of all meds/times/water intake so no confusion or dreaded mistakes. The pain is no where near the pain I thought it would be! Probably helps that I have had 3 sections and the hysterectomy. Its easier than hysterectomy much easier!

You look fabulous!! As we knew you would!..I'm hoping you get that trapped air out soon..I had that happen during my hysterectomy and it is not fun or comfy at all...i had to do breathing exercises and kept my bum higher then my lungs...Dr said that your body will soak up the air if you stay on this position...it worked within a couple days...make sure you rest rest rest and rest some more...your bum will be sore and your going to get restless! But you got this, you are a very disciplined bunny and will hop out with your new body in no time flat!..and flat :-) You're so lucky that you don't have drains...those things will drive you nuts!...have you seen you button yet?...it's amazing to look down and see a brand new button!!...feel better and stay comfy...ttyl doll...your doing great!!

1st week done and happy happy!!

I can't believe its 1week since tt!
Had a lovely day out in lovely restaurant for Christmas lunch. Kids were spoilt. I'm still suffering with wind and trapped all night and still haven't slep more than 3hours for 1week!! My best friend of 28years visited this evening and I had my dress on and she didn't say a bloody word didn't mention my body!! Hurt me a little..as my body is such a difference in such little time. I was sooo shocked tonight I put on new pjs from mum size 12(8us) and they looked lush and I didn't even think they would fit. My fake boobs looked great too without bra and they are nearly 9years old.weighed today and lost 8lb on a week!! Still very swollen but so so happy!
SOS for bragging but I'm wanting to share my experience with everyone

Love the dresses you found. Very figure flattering. You look great. Belly Button looks fabulous. Mine started out as an innie, but it has a bump right now, so I'm not sure how it is going to turn out. I guess I will just have to wait to see how it heals completely. I'm really trying to stay away from salty foods to keep from retaining water and going through all the swelling. I can tell when I am swollen though, my binder gets a little snug and I get the itchies. Keep up the great work. You are looking fabulous. You are going to be so ready for a bikini next year when you hit the beaches of Orlando.

You look amazing, and what a wonderful transformation you have accomplished (weight loss, surgery everything!). You are inspirational. You and JJoselyn are my HEROES ;-). I head in for my TT w/ Muscle repair in 27 days, EEEK! Hope I have good luck. Still on the fence about lipo to the hips, cause of needing it so many other places.

I'm so glad I've read your story. I'm in uk too and going for my second consultation on the 13th jan and will get my date for February. I will be having the fleur de lys with a bit of lipo I think. I've been struggling to loose this extra stone over Xmas so up early and pt tomorrow. You look fantastic and glad you said the tt wasnt as bad as your hysterectomy!! I had a great recovery from mine so you've put me at ease and erased any doubts about having this done. Thanks

It's such a pity my BFF can't share my most happiest time of my life! She's just left my home and hasn't even asked 1question about me! I sent her 7pics of my new bod and she ignored everyone and made no comment at all. So I messaged her saying don't worry I won't BORE you no more so I won't be sending you any more pics of my new body!!!!!!
Thanks to you all for sharing my pics and complete happiness at this time in my life xxxxc

Wdf happened there?! I was on a roll there.. Here we go again... Pmsl at this phone .. Anyway what I was saying was ... Who needs friends like tat. It's not ur problem!! Is hers!! Never 4get the 3L's... Live laugh & love (ur new body) so what if she doesn't seem intrested she's well jealous, ya know if every1 could afford it there wudb more of us plastic fantastic girls Runnin around but it takes a strong minded,strong attitude independant woman want me to keep continuing? But u know what I mean but most of all a strong bank balance to have tis procedure done& if she can't handle what u want to improve mayb she needs to get her brain looked at, enventually she will come round& there will be no love lost& u's will both laugh about it some day.. Just for now let her mellow, in her self thoughts& u be happy!! Ps ... There's nothing worse than being bitchy it makes u ugly& I know 4dam sure ur far from ugly so be happy!!! Ya know second time round txt was better than the 1st one!! What a ramble!!

Same with me sister, my best friend never replies to my showing her my new pics and body...she was always cuter and all the guys hit on her back in the day (we are both married for 10 years now) and she has gained weight and has low self esteem now, so just so you know, try to remember that she is insecure about herself, so much so that she will not give you much in praise...feel bad for her, I feel bad for my BF as I want her to be happy and she isn't...nothing you can do but find praise elsewhere and save the friendship! Looking great!

Gosh I feel so bloody fat and huge

Aww, thats a shame your feeling down :( why don't you you tube lymphatic drainage videos, you can start doing them at home ... or even search for a professional masseuse to give you one in your local area. I'm learning massage just now as part of my studies and it makes a big difference ... helps move the lymph around the body to the lymph nodes for drainage :) chin up chick xxx

All part of healing honey, no worries, the fluid is the pounds, think about how heavy a gallon of water is. Now you know you have that much if not more just hanging around the surgical site, it will all go away in time. But hey, you have a flat tummy under there! :) Katie

Hey the hardest thing is to watch what u eat!! I lost my weight from eating what I wanted but nothing after 4pm at first it was 6pm then a week later you do 5pm then another week later 4pm an I lost everything coz it have my body natural time to digest everything!! It's hard but u get used to it an I find kids don't help when u diet coz u buy them treats an I would nibble them my self lol, just don't punish your self for wanting a treat!!

Phew was glad of that he took pics of me for his profile and website, glad I wore my new Lacey diamanté lingerie ???? he showed me my pics just before I went into theatre OMFG!!!!! I was def in denial as I can't remember seeing that gross body in my mirror..I told him about my two hard lumps below bb and he said fat pockets under skin!!! Gutted as the right side is huge and looks odd as hell..I thought they were swelling as they hurt like mad...any one else had this????

Lost 5lb this week

I lost 5lb this week I wasn't dieting as such just watching what I was eating and not eating late at night.
I have been shopping today and bought £125 of weight watchers food as the supermarket had offers on all of it lol.
So me and hubby have started that today which is great as you can eat mostly everything as long as you count the propoints!
Well realistically I would like to loose 11lbs and be happy at 162lbs so not too much hey!

5weeks post op

Ok so it's 5weeks post op and I'm fine my bodies healed well and doing everything apart from bathing in a bath as my surgeon says its a no no at the moment...
The think I do have though is I still believe I'm huge!! I know it sounds mental but I look in mirror and see a big belly when I know it's no where near what it was!! I also look at pics at don't see them in my head If that makes any sense!! I don't think it's just me going through this mental torture and it's more than likely part if the process!! It's not making me down or sad it's just something I'm experiencing at this time in the recovery!
Hope u all fighting fit EMZ x

Ahh thanks Hun feel like a fat pig tonight I've eaten crap and put in lots and even have rolls when sitting!! All my own fault but punishing myself more by eating even more crap

Weight

I know weight as always been a major issue in my life! Iv done every diet every life changing healthy eating plan. Even spent thousands on a gastric band when really should of had brain surgery not stomach surgery! I am eating rubbish at the weekends and really punishing myself as when I start I can't stop I put on 9lbs Friday in a day.. I hate myself for doing this and then eat more till I feel sick! I went out yesterday and felt so fat an even had rolls of fat hanging over clothes!
I know what I need to do and that is healthy eating and exercise and stop puting myself in mode of dieting but just can't help this crap time at the moment! I'm well educated but just can't get my mind fixed for it..
Nightmare girls as I'm so sad

13 Comments

Try and stay the course and not feel dejected! I've stopped looking at the scales everyday and limit to twice a week as it can fluctuate from time to time, try and adopt a healthy way of living and pick up the exercise a little and think of it as a life style change! Think of the reason we went through this, it's wasn't just because of how much weight you saw on the scales but how you looked and for your confidence levels, a little blip here and there is acceptable - we have gotta live after all and keep your spirits up! You'll get there xxxxx

1st stop punishing yourself if u are good Monday to Friday then that is good what I do is sat morning I just have a bit of fruit and and ouch the same then at night any take out I want then I have a big bar of choc and sweets that's my treat day and 2nd there is no way in hell u can put 9lb on in one day no way u may eat and eat and eat then it says you put 9lb on but if you drunk and drunk water it would say the same it takes at least 2 days for u to put any think on after u have eating it hunny all so are you still putting on binder as I am nearly 3 mouth and still got mine on at least 20 hrs of the day as some time I am fine other days I have a big roll u are still very early days xx

Girl, you can do this! A mistake one day, does NOT ruin everything good that you have done. Tomorrow brings a new day and the chance to do differently, to choose differently. You'll do better and this rough patch will be behind you. Just look at those before pics...you've come a long way. Hugs and feel better ;-)

4months girlies

Well it's been 4months now since my tt and it has gone very quick!
Nothing has really changed since 2months in all fairness! My tummy is still tender and feels weird when it's been touched like a numb but still can feel it if I make sense!
I am up and down with weight at present in 9lbs heavier than post op but I can lose it in 2weeks and gain it when busy social times I.e easter lol.
When I lose I also lose a dress size even if it is just 7-9lbs. But I'm happy and not threat ing over it as I feel I got it under control.
Would love to have legs, arms, bum and boobs done lol lol lol.
I took some pics today of me in a tight cami dress with leggins size 12 UK!
Hope u all good

You're looking great! Time flies doesn't it? I never thought I would feel that way in those first few days/weeks after the surgery. I'm following WW as well, but I've been bouncing back and forth with gaining and losing about the same 5lbs since surgery and it's so frustrating! Good luck to you!

I saw your comment on Happy Suzy's post so I thought I would see who you were. First, let me say you look amazing - I am shocked by your before and after photos - you don't even look like the same person. I had to laugh at you at your heaviest - you and I looked so much alike with our boobs resting on top of our stomachs. I lost 170 pounds (I've since gained back 30 and trying to lose it again) but even though we ended up around the same weight (I was 165 when I had my surgery) you look so much better than I did after my tummy tuck - your flat stomach is amazing. Enjoy your trip to Florida - it will be nice for you to see some sun instead of rain.

I had my TT and boob lift with Dean Boyce June 9th this year, I'm really happy with my results; I seem to have mirrored a lot of your post op experiences. You're looking fab!!
