With my first daughter I had toxiema and pre pregnancy weight of 115lbs and time of delivery was 260lbs. 3 days after delivery my daughter I dropped 90pds.
After a couple months I weighed 145lbs consistently.
My second daughter added on the other 20 pounds but the pregnancy didn't have much weight gain but re stretched out everything, and added 4 more strecth marks above my belly.
Dr bashioum advised me I would recieve "better" results if I were to lose some more weight. I am happy with the remaining body and my weight. So I am proceeding with the surgery.
My incision is quite different and that is why I decided to chose him.
Dr Bashioum's incisions fall in the natural creeases in my thigh lines and a cresent shape above the private part.
He by passes some thing "" so that drainage tubes are not needed which also helps healing go faster. He uses stiches that disolve on the inside and surgical glue to close me up.
We will find out the rest tomorrowUpdated on 20 Dec 2011:Today is the day and I am adding some (horrifying pictures). I have to be there at 6:45 so it is an HOUR away! It only takes 30 minutes to get their from my house through.
I did not sleep very good. Even taking a lorezapam. So my anxiety/excitement is extremely high!Updated on 21 Dec 2011:Today is day two and I am way more sore and uncomfortable. I took a shower today which was horrid and I almost fainted. I am having some discharge from my lip that leaked through my compression girdle and the girdle is a bit annoying. My muscles are extremely tight and are having spazes. It is EXTREMELY hard to get out of bed and need assistance to get out of bed. I had a second peek today and the appearance of my stomach is much flatter but I still have a lot of stretch marks which upset me a little. I am trying to say positive and look forward to the coming days.
