TT in 2 days. I'm 64, 5'3 and 110 pounds. All tummy. Scared but excited. Am I crazy. Wish I had someone my age who's had surgery and could give me pointers. Will try to undated after tt in case any other grandmas like me have been waiting 30 years to do this. Never posted on line before. Does this work

DEE PO NEWS (TT 8-8-13)

DEE PO NEWS (TT 8-8-13) ppt today (day 6). Great news for me. My drains came out today and I can begin to try to stand up. Will also try to sleep in bed tonight. Also had first BM so I'm on a roll. Hope it continues. I must say the pain has been less than anticipated. Hope all ttuckers are progressing.

Feel great at 9 weeks. Had a real easy and smooth recovery. Still have pulling and soreness in tummy but that takes time. Can do all but heavy exercise. It gets better every day. Whish I had gone for uplift at top too. Heal well

I'm day 24 and I'd do it again. I just have a tummy tuck with muscle repair, no lipo. My cost was $8400. I am a small but was all belly. In doubt that ins will help unless you have a hernia or something medical that needs repaired at the same time. My recoup isn't as bad as I expected, but I can tell it will take a long time to get back to normal. If you click on each persons name you can see before and after photos of each persons progress, if posted. I am 64 and wish I did it 20 yes ago

You inspire me! I was thinking that I'm too old to do this and because of awesome people like you, I really do believe that age is just a number. I'll probably think the same and wish I did this 20 years ago but you know what? It's the next 20 that counts and they will be the best years yet!

Can't wait to see your post op photos to see the difference that the TT has made for you. Sounds like you're doing great with less pain than you anticipated. That makes me more hopeful that things will turn out okay for me too!

I went into this expecting bad pain and the worst scenarios. I also told myself I did it for me and i wasn't going to complain or bitch, to take it easy and let time heal. I think a realistic attitude helps the rprocess. You'll do great. You will need you husbands support and encouragement so butter him up goodnthis week.

I'm 62 and perhaps a little crazy to be considering a tt at my age but, oh well...I've hated my blubber belly for most of my life so the time has come to get rid of it!
