Day 6 PO

I am so comforted (and a little nervous) by reading all of your personal experiences!
I am 42 and a mother of 3 beautiful daughters ages 10, 4 & almost 3. I am 5'2" and weighed in today at 102 lbs. My MM is scheduled for 10/2 and pre-op 9/24. I'm still a bit wishy washy about having the procedures done. I will be going in for BA, TT and lipo of my flanks and mons. I've always been comfortable with how I look but after having 3 babies my body of course, just hasn't been the same. I'm pretty petite. I've never really had boobs to begin with pre-op I am a very small A. I've tried on different sample sizes with my PS and surgical consultant, Diana. At first I wanted to be a full B but every consult I went to said I wouldn't be happy with the results. So I figured, if I was going to spend that amount of money why not go bigger (without looking too fake!) I'm wavering between 350-375 cc's silicone implants.


I have such mixed emotions right now. I'm nervous, excited, feeling guilty, etc. But like I said, I am so comforted by reading everyone's experience. I will update as much as I can. It's little difficult getting on the computer with 2 little ones running around the house! I probably won't post pictures until I get closer to my surgery date.

Thanks for all of your support out there! I really appreciate it! Rapid recovery to all!

Is this true? I was told that since I've already had 3 c-sections recovery from the TT would be a breeze. That's one of my concerns since I won't have a lot of help. My pre-op is tomorrow and I'm STILL undecided whether I should go on with my surgeries.

Well today was my pre-op and I've confirmed my...

Well today was my pre-op and I've confirmed my surgery date for next Tuesday, October 2nd. I was sooo undecided up until today that when I spoke to the surgical counselor to confirm my date I cried. I had the same mixed feelings many of you had or have been having from the finances, leaving my DH with all the responsibility of cooking, cleaning and running our girls from school to dance and what have you! But I'm excited. I'm doing this for myself, right? I'll have my pre pregnancy tummy back and a new rack!
Anyway, after my pre-op we (my DH came to the appt. with me) went to Walmart to pick up all my RX. Geez, I was prescribed like 6 meds: percocet for pain, valium for anxiety, zofran for nausea, clindamycin and doxycyline for antibiotics & a patch I'm suppose to put behind my ear to help with more nausea. I also picked up the Hibiclens, Dulcolax tablets, Colace & Probiotics. Is there anything else I should have picked up? It was recommended by my PS to get hydrogen peroxide, Cortaid, distilled water & Aquaphor. All for cleaning my incision. He also advised to take a 1/2 percocet to see how I react to it since I'm so petite. I took it about and hour and a half ago and I think it's starting to take effect. The room is starting feel like it's spinning! I have a good feeling that it'll be a fairly quick recovery. Let's hope so! Please pray for me as I will do the same for all of you! Happy healing!
I'll try to post pix soon.

I'll be leaving for my surgery in about 20 mins, ladies. Please wish me luck! See you on the flat side! Oh and I'll keep you posted as much as I can. DH took pre-op photos last night that I'll post later. Thank you!

Wow! I did it! Woke up at 6:30 this morning cua I forgot to shut off my alarm clock. So far so good though. My DH gave meds. Boy do I love that Percocet! Had to get out of bed to go pee. Can I say OUCH! And it does feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest. Overall I think I'm ok. Yeah, I'm on the flat side!

Today I went to my PO appt. Nothing special. They just cleaned me up and put new dressings. PS said I was able to take off my CG whenever I had to use the bathroom which is relief cuz those bulbs are a pain! That's it for now feeling a little sleepy again. Posting pix now. Happy healing ladies!

Quick update, went to see my PS for another PO appt. I was hoping for a quick and easy recovery and think it's happening! It's going great, actually. Got my 2nd drain removed today. Yay, not more drains! PS says BA looks great, just need to keep massaging the boobs. The way he did it sure was painful! He says BB is healing great, and TT incision looks great too! Looks like I'm on the happy road to healing! Of course, I'm still on my meds. Hang in there, ladies! Happy healing!
