Hi I am 23 and I have a small child I have wanted a tummy tuck for the last few years before I was pregnant with my son I was just over 18 stone about 252 lb and when I was pregnant I didnt put and Weight on after giving birth i looked the same as I did when I was pregnant when my son was about 6 mouths I decided to lose weight and in 7 mouths I went from 18 stone to 12 stone that's about 160 lb but I didn't really feel and better as my tummy looked so so bad I am getting married next year as well and I want to look good for my wedding I will still be having another child in a few years but I no if I don't over eat when I am pregnant I will never get bk to this i am looking forward to having a flat belly but very nervous and the pain and I hope I will look good I am having it done November be nice to have tt sis to talk to who has had this done or is having it done

Pre op fat side really want to be on the flat side lol

9 weeks and 3 days to go

Not long to go I really can't wait but at the same time I am really worried about the pain i am due to go in for my tt on 13th nov and I was thinking will I be ok by Xmas and my sons birthday is 5 weeks after will I be ok for that I hope so

8 weeks 1 day to go

Ok my op is just over 8 weeks to go and I don't no y but I am really worried about every think now I worry I won't look as good as I think I will I worry I may not wake up after being put under I hope this is all normal :(

recliner or not

Can anybody help me I have been looking at recliner chairs and for the ones that lay you down ect they cost over £800 and I really don't want to pay that so looking to hire one will 2 weeks be ok as some people still in them 2 mouths later :(

Stressing out again

I am so made with myself for feeling this way so meany people wish they could have this chance of geting this done and all I am doing is worrying one minute I am fine next having a fit my op is less then 2 mouths then after that I will be geting married 7 mouth after and worried I Wont be feeling 100% and looking how I should I have been looking at other post and a few have said still don't say they are 100% after such a long time now I feel I have made a mistake :((((((

not long

Well the time is going very fast spoke to a nurse today about pain meds and I told her I can't take co-Codamol tablet as they make me really I'll so I said what will I take insted and she said paracetamol tablet!!! I said is that it I take that for a stomach pains I need more then that and she said maby tramadol I said I will take them as well lol on a really good note I have lost just over 14lb in 2 weeks really happy about that so hopefully I will lose another 14lb :)

So close

Well it's 3 weeks to go and I am so excited I really can't wait! Just not looking forward to the pain after but I just wish it was the day after the op now so the only way is up I go in on the 13th and come out on the 15th but I will be all on my own as my hubby to be will be with are child so I am a bit worried about that and feel a bit sorry for my self lol

7 days till my op

One week till my op and i thought I would be really excited but I am just really worried not really about the pain just about going in to the operating theatre laying there and waiting for it all to happen it sounds silly I no. All so my man has to look after are child so I will be in my own in hospital for 2 nights with no one i do fill really lucky to have this chance to have this done but I fill guilty feeling like this.

It's my turn :)

I am so excited and worried and the same time just about to leave for the hospital wish me luck :) x
