That fleshy thing on my belly just had to go. For years I could not justify spending money on myself or being out of commission that long. But something possessed me to have a consultation with the plastic surgeon and a price estimate and I made the appointment and stuck to it. So very glad to have it done. It is hard some days to see through the discomfort but I think back and remind myself of that big ugly thing that I was carrying around. I have both the horizontal and the vertical incision so it's been a lot of healing, plus an infection 3 weeks after my surgery set me back a lot. I have a lot of clothes but haven't as yet tried any of them on but that will come I guess. My man has been great and of course we have found ways to have sex while my belly was so painful, now that is getting easier every day. A really weird thing to note is that he never noticed or cared about that thing on my belly that caused ME so much annoyance. When I told him I was having my surgery he didn't know what was wrong with my belly and why I wanted it done. But it was my money and he just shrugged and has been supportive and patient. He did want me to assure him that I wasn't doing it for him. Which I wasn't , I have been dreaming of it for years, and if was just the right time.

My getting better every day results.

38 Days Post TT

I drove for 4 hours 3 days ago and I was exhausted. My belly was paining and hurting and tender. I wore my garment all day.
Still feel swollen and bloated. I can go without food from 4 pm till the next morning till 9 am and have an egg and a 0% yogurt cup and I feel as though I swallowed a whole entire turkey. Feeling soooo much pressure when I eat even a small amount of food feels like a 3 course meal. I guess that is a good thing but I was never a big eater.

Post TT and lipo 42 days.

It's December, 25. Yesterday I had my garment off 1/2 the day and on when I was driving. I still have a little place in my incision that is seeping and tons of hard lumps all along the incisions.
Here is the positive stuff:
I am extremely thankful for having the choice to have my TT.
I am thankful that the large mass of tummy that I could grab with both hands is gone. Yeah!
I am thankful that all my lower parts have been pulled forward to the position that they were pre- children.
I am thankful that I was able to take it easy for a month and just wallow in my discomfort.
I am thankful that when I sit down that old belly is not creeping down on top of my legs. Yeah!
I am thankful that I had this done because I thought about it for so long and dreamed about taking the time to 'just do it'. And I did it.
I am thankful for my surgeon. And the clinic staff and their helpfulness through the early days.
Enjoy the season everyone!
