I have an appointment for a consultation October 20th...I'm not nervous about this meeting but will be when he schedules me for the actual surgery. I've put this off for three years, now is the time because I'm not getting any younger. Although I'm scared I've been doing lots of research in this and feel this is the time.

62 Year Old 2c Sections

Is there anyone who is 55 and older who is getting a TT. I have my
consultantation Oct 20 and am nervous about about having a surgery at
the age of 62. I'm in good health with no medical issues other then
thyroid problems. I am looking forward to this journey and feeling
better about myself. I started this process, 3 years ago but was scared
to go through with it. I was in a bad place then mentally which was
probably a good choice not to go through with it. My life now is
incredible, remarried, and ready to move on...my only concern is my

Well finally had my consult with Dr Howly. ..I took a close friend with me in case I missed something that he said to me..I asked lots of questions, most importantly if any of his patients had died from this surgery. ..with thousands of surgeries, never has that happened. . I believe if your Dr. is well recommended and board certified then your chances are very good. As scarey as this may be, I left there feeling so good about the surgery. ..my date for tt is in March uncertain about the day as of yet but will know more the first of February, What I've learned about the fear is,get it out of your system. ..read from this forum, the good the bad and the ugly. ..do your homework. ..but after you have read and learned, move on past this fear,, read only the positive stories on this site..I'm healthy and have a great Dr I believe I'll be OK. . Of course anxiety still exists, I'll take one day at a time looking forward to having no big belly..

Going Forward, Feeling Braver!

Just want to pop in here briefly to say thank you all...it's the site and herring all you before and after stories that has taken me from unknown Fear to real stories. ..I will update you on my journey and ask for advice from people that have had the courage to go before me and look amazing...it took me three years 2013 when I began this obsession, but I wasn't mentally in a good place.. here I am again after reading all your reviews, a daily ritual for me lol.. I am glad that this site is available for people that need the knowledge and inspiration to take this a step further. ..it is the leading factor of making up my mind and wanting to take this journey !!!

My before pic

This is my before pictures,,yuk how I hate my body. Thought about not posting but that's not fair to this site for women who show before and after pictures. It will be great after my own surgery to see the before and after...never have I taken pictures of my belly before lol why would I...my surgeon had pictures take already,said I was a good candidate. ..now to stay as fit as I can until the big day.

So my date has changed from March 2017 to...

So my date has changed from March 2017 to Novemeber 29 the next month. Can I say nervous or what!! What I know is that I'm really excited, I went in Oct 21 and had my consultation, asked if I could be put on a cancellation list, and that's exactly what has happened. So I'm staring my date right in the face, yikes!!!! I couldn't be more happy to finally have this done. Now instead of just thinking about all the things that I need to get, other then what the Dr says will be challenging...my hubby want to hire someone to come before the surgery to dissenfect everything here for me, God love him, he is such a supportive man, love him. So as I get closer week by week I'll post the things that I get, with the help of some of the great ladies before me, thanks to this site. I swear my fear factor is so low because of reading on this forum the ups and downs. Can any of us really be that prepared, it will be what it will be, we are all different . I'm 33 days pre surgery,!!!!!

New Surgery Date, November 29th.

Well my surgery date is close at hand, to be exact 30 days from today...a new sense of urgency to be prepared. .excited, bot to nervous right now and just looking forward to having this over with. ..will do all my Christmas shopping in November. When I feel scared I remember what my PS said to me, talking like it's just another TT no big deal he has done thousands with no fatalities. He was very reasuring to say the least...

My date is just around the corner, a few days ago...

My date is just around the corner, a few days ago my dad at 92 went to the hospital , he needed a pacemaker..he's still in the hospital and my brother and sister take turns staying with my mom all night... another twist of fate my house is selling November 30th after 3 years of it on the market, the buyers will not give me the extra month to get out, lol so we madly searched for a new home which we were lucky enough to find after only a few days...problem being we can't move in until December 2nd. ..so from the 30th until December 2nd I need a place to recuperate. .lol I have family member begging g me to postpone, I just can't do that..I'll figure it all out,that is my rant.

Date Moved To December

It's been a roller coster of emotions. I'm happy as moving to a new home is now my new priority on the date which was set for my surgery on November 29th...thanks to the clinic for moving my date a little further back December 20th...can't wait, but will be sad when that first date passes me by after preparing myself emotionaly. I dream of looking flat, of feeling so self confident. I will be glad when it's all over!
