Mother of 3 5' 44yrs old primary reason is loose skin is the main concern at my age. I feel like I carry an apron with me at all times.

I have been reading the stories here which have really helped. I have changed my mind about three times but after finding this site and reading thru the stories it has helped me gain confidence.

I am so nervous I cant stop eating junk food I crave all the wrong stuff I have been watching what I eat active at the gym and these last few days I have been soooo baddd I think I am having moments where I feel like do I go thru with it or what??

I saw my Dr. yesterday went over procedures answered my questions I feel more comfortable with him this was my 3rd consultation and he has been very helpful and patient to all my questions and concerns.

4 days till my makeover slept much better feeling more calm.

Getting prepped with all necessary items doing house cleaning so I am not worrying about it a day before.

I am 48 hours away from my makeover this weekend was an emotional rollercoaster for me being fathers day - my father passed away in 2002
my husband passed away in 2008

I have a 10 yr old who said he dont have a dad cause he went to heaven.
How does one answer that.

Spent the day at the cemetary started to feel restless started to have negative thoughts again the WHAT IF's I feel like I'm just too emotional right now.

I am also excited I look forward to my makeover I try to stay calm to overcome the negative thoughts and the debbie downers, I just pray all will turn out fabulous.

Also I have been such a junkie craving evertyhin cant stop eating....

6 days post op

I dont think Id ever felt this pain before

*Breast Aug
*Tummy tuck
*Fat transfer to buttock
lower back

lots of pain meds made it worse I did this without pain med I take Tylenol occasionaly
today I feel good but I still need to take it slow
I can't sleep at night
I can't eat
I can't stay still
I guess I am so restless from all the procedures total trauma to my head I had never felt this much pain but it was only the first few days and I think I felt it more due to the fact I did not take pain meds,

Thanks so much for sharing your story and feelings with us here on RealSelf. I know it can feel pretty harrowing in the days leading up to your surgery, but we're here for you to lean on. Keep your eyes on the prize (and the flat, taut belly) and you'll be ready for the beach again before you know it.

Hi! There are a couple other ladies on the boards that have used your doctor and have gotten great results! If you search for his name it may pull up and you can reach out to them. Nerves is part of it, but if you are comfortable with your doctor and trust in his credentials all will be fine! Stop worrying, keep at the gym,cleaning your house, preparing some meals and getting your recovery space ready to go and before you know it you will be back at home recovering! Good luck!
