I am a 31 year old mother of 1. I have gained sooo much weight over the last 4- 5 years. I have been working out and eating better and nothing seems to help. I went to Dr. Brown in Macon, Ga for my consultation about 1 month ago, and I am scheduled to have my TT and lipo on Thursday May 8, 2014. I am soooo nervous, I have been having 2nd thought about it and I have been calling my Dr. worrying him and his staff like crazy, with ANY question I can think of!!!!! They are sooo helpful and answers all my question!!! I got married in June of 2013 and I have gained 30lbs since June!!! OMG!!!!!!!! My husband thinks I'm fine the way I am and I love him for that but this is something I have to do for me!! I have read a lot of your post and blogs and I am grateful to know that I'm not the only one with the preop nerves!!!
1 day until my surgery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
I went for my markings on yesterday. I am really excited. I was so nervous the day before yesterday but my mom prayed with me and asked God for some things to be revealed (dealing with this surgery) to me, and I got my confirmation on that evening! Back to my markings, I will upload pics of my markings ... OMG... I didn't know I needed this muck work done. I was reading others post and I came across a list of items to get prior to my surgery, went to walmart and picked up those items, multivitamins, vitiamin A and C (dr. recommended) and some maxi dresses last night and now let the count-down begin.!!!!!!!
1 question for those who are post-op are there any other type of clothes I should get or can wear?
cleaning.... cleaning......and more more cleaning....
I started "spring cleaning" on Monday! I wanted to make sure my house was cleannnn. I mean it's clean, but I want to make sure that all my husband and daughter has to do is maintain. I have had the "keep the house clean" talk with them and I will reinforce it today! loll!!! Going to get a recliner today!!!! Are there any suggestions on what kind of recliner to get?
BEFOR THE WEIGHT GAIN....
I have always been proportioned and thick never really skinny!
It was the night before my surgery
Let the countdown begin!!!! 8.5 hrs until show time. I am a little on the edge but for the most part I am good! Thank you all for your pre-op motivation and prayers.....Now let the fun begin(sarcasm).... I'll be sure to update you until they take my phone. lol.... Keep me in your prayers and I will do the same for you! God Bless You All
