Hello ladies! I am a 32 yr old mother of two. 5'4 at checking in at 139lbs. For whatever reason when I had my children my ab muscles remained separated. With my oldest...the doc (military doc) never said a thing about separated abs so I had no clude, just had a severly wrinkled belly. With my last child...it was clear that something was wrong soon after, but again (military) doc never said a word. Everywhere I went people would ask me when I was due...even when I had my then two month old with me! I recently went through a divorce and now receive my care a Veteran Hospital, the first visit with my doc, she took a look at it, diagnosed me with Diastasis Recti and referred my to 'the plastic clinic' for nips and tucks. Initially I was very excited, but now I am a nervous wreck. I can't help but think about how major this surgery is and the fear of the unknown is killing me. I worry about something bad happening and how it would affect my children and family. I've watched a few YouTube videos and while some make me feel that I can do it others make me feel like it's not such a good idea. I am fairly healthy and no overweight, but I've looked between 4 and 5 months preggo for the last three years. I want to do this...I REALLY do, but I am nervous as crap! I feel completely unprepared. The doc didn't tell me to get anything preop so I am trying to gather all the information for what I'll need on my own. A recliner is def out of the question...no room, no money to buy! Anyhow, I am happy I found this site...maybe I can blog my itters aways and get some advice along the way. My pre-op is on the 1st of October. Wish me luck ladies! I'll def be following the updates that you all post! No photos yet...maybe in a day or two!
