I'm a lean woman with an annoying little belly so I went to see ps if coolsculpting would fix belly and he checked me out and said my tummy muscles were separated and only tt would fix. So having used him for a very successful BA 7 years ago I signed up. I assume it will be like my BA surgery more or less. You know every day gets abit better and you just go with it. But reading everyone's posts I'm worried. At first I thought "what am I doing? Do I really need this? I have a little belly and when I lose lots of weight it hangs abit. So what. And then I will have a big ugly scar that will go from hip to hip (I have no scars from Ba)". But then I thought about how annoying it is to have to wear tight workout pants so my tummy doesn't jump up and down (it's uncomfy). My pants and shorts are all tight on my waist and lose on my ass. I always feel fat and try not to eat carbs but I'm skinny every where else. My little belly sticks out if I wear a tight shirt. And who cares about the scar? I'm almost 50. Who is gonna see it? So I think I'm fixing a muscle problem so I can live my next 50 years to the fullest. Tight abdominal wall will be good for posture (eventually), good to keep organs in tight and good for exercising and as a bonus clothes will fit better and I can eat like a normal person. This is what I'm telling myself. Now the next thing to worry about: the recovery. My hubby doesn't want me to tell anyone so not sure how to hide the fact that I'm out of commission for 1 week or 2. Is it really true that I won't be able to sit down to pee? Wtf
There has got to be a way. Truck or car for surgery day? Which one will be easier for me? With BA I just used my legs for everything at least with this surgery I think I can lift my arms. Sleeping half sitting up is doable -- I did that with BA. Sorry for long post. Have a lot of questions and concerns to get through.
