I had a consult two weeks ago with the doctor I'm planning on using in Calgary. It went well! He said he doesn't often perform lipo and a TT at the same time. Too much increase in risk. Which is fine by me! He said if I'm concerned with my flanks, we can deal with that afterwards. I was so nervous to go see him! I was praying that he didn't tell me that I needed to lose more weight before thinking about a TT.
I'm currently 5'3, and 138lbs. I'm 24 years old... and have four kids. Yikes!! DH and I have been busy! lol. We are done having kids now, and my belly is wrecked! It was our first son who did all the damage, I gained 50lbs with him. The three others I was careful about my weight during pregnancy, and managed to gain less than 15-25lbs with each of them. I'm still working on losing and/or tightening as much as I can before surgery. I want to know I'm setting myself up for getting the best results that are possible. (As long as the Dr. does his part!!!)
We are currently building a house right now, which is nothing but headache!! Seems like everything is one step forward, two steps back with the house! So stressful! We are moving into the new house May 1st. So time is going to fly between now and then!!
My mom will be flying in to take care of our four kids. She'll be staying with us for 4.5 weeks. I'm so glad she's able to do that!! My husband will be taking the first week off as well. I've booked a recovery condo for the first 5 days after surgery, before coming home to the kids, and noise.
