9/7/10 Okay, tomorrow morning is my procedure. I had my consult last week, my pre-op today and surgery tomorrow! I know it seems fast but I have been getting ready to this for quite a while now... and we have some scheduling complications due to family illness that make this the perfect time.
First of all, kudos to the office for being so willing to work with my schedule requests! I am nervous because I tend to faint around needles. I want to be as out of it as possible while still able to breathe and not piss myself, haha. I took my measurements and a good look at myself in the mirror. I wanted to say goodbye to this version of myself, thank it for having gotten me to this point and welcome the idea of a slightly different vision from now on. I don't know what else to say tonight, I am excited to shed this baggage, literal and emotional (and mostly not even my own) and I hope this becomes a positive step toward the life I wish to call forth. The no exercise bit is going to be a challenge for me as I am an acrobat and I do intense training. Hopefully in my downtime I can supervise the construction of my new training rig! Hello pants that fit in the waist and hip and don't rip at the butt seam anymore! Hello everything I have been dying to wear but always hang back up because of my hips! Lumps and bumps, don't even think about it.
They have my before pics so we'll have to wait for that.
