I am 3 weeks post surgery. Had my tummy tuck on 3/8/2010. I had 5 kids in 4 years, including triplets so my stomach was way out of whack. I lost about 25 lbs before going for my tummy tuck. I was 151 lbs the day I walked into surgery.
The first day after surgery was horrible. I have a high pain tolerance and it was really lousy - until I took the pain meds. That made all the difference in the world in those first 48 hours. My recovery has been great, and I haven't experienced anything my doctor didn't tell me. His staff is top-notch, kind, courteous, friendly and real. I could not be happier and cannot wait to see the final results!
