Deposit paid and i have my date. the countdown is real - Columbus, GA

*THE COUNTDOWN IS REAL* I went for my second...

I went for my second consultation on Oct. 3, 2016 for an extended TT. I am so excited, now that I have paid my deposit. I will be having surgery on March 15, 2017 @ 1030 a.m. I am 33 with four lovely kids. That I birth all by C-section. One of my biggest question is the pain. Could the pain be compared as the same as a C-section? I have a very high pain tolerant, so I’m not too worried about the pain. As I been doing my homework on TT I think I am more scared of getting the IV placed in my neck. I live two hours away from Columbus GA. So I am in search for a nice hotel suite in the Columbus area. My sister-in-law say that the Candlewood is a very nice hotel with a recliner so I most likely would be going with that hotel. My plains are to stay in Columbus for the first five days with my supportive husband. I have come up with a supply list, but still searching for supplies that best for me and my recovery. Without RealSelf I would be so lost on what everythig, so I want to thank all the men and women that share they stories on RealSelf. I hope one day my story will be as helpful and encouraging to someone as others were to me. I will be posting some before pictures soon. I will also keep everyone updated on how things going throughout my countdown….Now that I have a date I feel as if I am dreaming and can’t wait for someone to wake me up on the flat side. I will be letting everyone no how my PO visit went…to be continue……

Mild Inner Thighs Consultation with Dr. C

Good afternoon my RS sisters this morning I drove 2 hours to visit Dr. Cochran to talk with him about adding a mild Lipo to my inner thighs. As usually Dr. C and his staff is very friendly. He had me to undress so he can take a good look at my thighs. He said it want be a problem adding a little Lipo to the inner I gotten dress I talk with Gail and she told me he only added $200.00 more to my surgery. She always nice and be ready to answer all your question. She will be mailing me my PRE-OP visit appointment. The only thing I am afraid of is having the IV put in my neck. Gail explained to me that I would take to pills and a shot an hour before surgery which will cause me to feel sleepy and a lil out of it, so when it's time for the IV I want really feel it. After hearing that I feel so much better...After leaving Dr. C office I decided to go by Candlewood Suites-Northeast on Whittlesey Boulevard where I made reservations at for me and my husband six night stay to see how nice the rooms.
