Ok ladies so I have schedule my date for the tummy tuck. I am super nervous since that's a longer recovery period. I went today for my 3 week post op appointment from the Lipo and ended up scheduling the tummy tuck. If any of you have done the tummy tuck or know of someone who has, please please please let me know

Hello my beautiful ladies. So today I went for my...

Hello my beautiful ladies. So today I went for my Pre op appt. Felt like I was there forever since he had Univision and a bunch of other camera ppl there. The more I heard about the famous drain, the more I got scared. It's a week and a day away and I'm extremely nervous. I'm guessing this is normal, I'm more scare about the recovery since I am only able to take off from work for two weeks. Luckily hubby is taking my youngest, 6 months old, to another state for two weeks. The doctor said There will be major difference immediately since I have all this hanging jelly, YUK! Even with the jelly belly, I am very please with the curves he gave me in the back which is noticeable in the front as well. I was told to get pads, laxative, and sleeping pills. I can't stress it anymore how scared I am about the drain, yikes!

Two more days until my tt. I'm nervous, excited...

Two more days until my tt. I'm nervous, excited and some what depress. I'm nervous that I won't get the results I'm expecting. I'm scare about the recovery since one of my kids will still be in the house with me. Ill just keep praying for the best and hope I join the flat side safely.

Gm!!!! The big day has come and I'm freaking...

Gm!!!! The big day has come and I'm freaking nervous. I'm waitin for the dr to mark and we can get this surgery started. I had a lot of nightmares last night, I guess it was because of how nervous I was. My surgery was schedule for 8;30 am and it's 9:30am and I'm still waiting. Ill let you all know how it went once I go over to the no jelly belly side lol

I must say this recovery is not easy. This is my third day post op and I'm hoping it gets better within the next few days. Im doing my best to not be in much pain but its not as easy. I send my youngest away to smooth things out, I still have my oldest 4yrs old, I was alone with her earlier and couldn't even get her a piece of bread. I had to call my sister to come stay with me until tonight. I can't wait for this pain to stop. :-(

Hey ladies, well today I'm doing much better. I...

Hey ladies, well today I'm doing much better. I was going to takeoff my garment but right then my cousin came to see me so I didnt want to show all of this on front of him. I go tomorrow to get my drain taking out and I am scare as shit. I been watching YouTube videos of people getting their drains taken out just so I can know what to except. I've been drinking apple cider vinegar with lemon every morning to bring down the swelling......... Hope everyone is doing well.

So I took out the drain today....... OMG! I think...

So I took out the drain today....... OMG! I think I said every curse word in the world in English and Spanish. I only took about 2seconds but damn that was not a good feeling. I'm glad to hear that some of you didn't experience that. I was already scare of the drain coming out so this experience was exactly what I expected. Lucky it was extremely quick. That tape from the stitches was remove, that to me was not that bad. I feel so much better after all of that. I honestly feel like I can take over the world right now. I love the new CG I received, it feel more comfortable and I feel more support. Hope everyone has a bless day, ill be putting up pics of today in a few mins

You ladies will not believe what just happend to...

You ladies will not believe what just happend to me. I am pregnant. I have been so depress today. I can't believe after I spent all this money, I am pregnant now. This has been one of the worse thing I've had to deal with. I don't know what to do. I feel like breaking down. I've cried so much today. I am not a believer of abortion, that's why this is so hard me. I am going to keep praying and hope god can give a sign on what to do. Hubby is very hurt, we said we are not having no more kids and once this happen it we both felt different about it. Mind you hubby was told a few years he will never have kids again, so for this to happen, it makes us wonder why?. He said he needs sometime to himself. I don't know what to do. I can't believe this would happen one week after getting a tummy tuck b

I will like to say THANK YOU to all you ladies. I...

I will like to say THANK YOU to all you ladies. I hope none of you would ever have to experience something like this. The worse part is that my belly is getting flatter and the curves are more noticeable. This makes things so much more difficult on what to do. I honestly don't know what to do and I'm waiting for a sign. I wish you all the best and once again Thank you! Happy healing ladies.

Hey luv. Everything has been ok. I want more lipo on my upper abdomen. I feel like when he did the TT he could have gotten more fat out. How do you feel and doing after the surgery?

Hi !! Yes it's been a while. How have you been ? How's your tummy doing ? I am sure you must look absolutely fabulous ! Well as for me, I am scheduled for my TT and lipo at NYEE next Friday.

He's not aggressive with lipo and if I gain just a lil weight it goes to my upper abdomen. I'm not happy with my results I really need lipo in my whole torso lol. I'm so glad you're doing well! Wish you nothing but the best!

Either way best of luck in your upcoming surgery! Your emotions will come the closer it gets or they'll hit you right after lol

That's exactly my problem. I'm tired of sucking it in. It seems like it won't go down. I told him that too. Before I feel I did a mistake I just decided to go back for lipo. I really wanted to go to Dr Cortes but he was charging double than Dr Yager. Also, when I sit a have a love handle (which isn't too sexy) on my upper abdomen, does that happen to you?

Oh my goodness! They were totally supposed to give you pregnancy test the day of your surgery! This a a very bitter sweet situation. I think this is lawsuit appropriate. The money you lost, the mental stress and your body. It takes a full year for you to be fully recovered from your TT along with MR. I am so sorry for your situation. HUGE error on their part. A child is ALWAYS a blessing you'll get through this.

Wow, yes we're u giving a test? They were suppose to give one or should have just to confirm. I hope you guys will be ok and get through it.

Omg that's such a tough situation to be in! Were u given a pregnancy test the day of? Hope all works out:/

Omg I couldn't imagine what u 2 r going through......I knew I would only have the procedure done after my tubes were tied......ill pray that u make the right decision.....
  • Reply
I agree cutie28, tubes should be tid because these things can happen. I dont believe in abortions either, so I had mine tied after my third child 12 years ago and Im 34! No joking over here!!! lol I wish you the best and you will make it through!
