Day of treatment
Today is the day !!! I'm surprisingly very calm right now and even slept like a baby last night. I assumed I would be a nervous wreck and be tossing and turning all night. Maybe it's the calm before the storm lol I go in at 11 today just a little more than 3hrs. I hope the 1hr car ride goes fast and my stomach doesn't do flip flops. Here's hoping everything goes well today :)

Day of treatment
Hi everyone! Well I made it through! I am in my private room for the night and am very groggy right now, I keep passing in and out for a few minutes and I'm waiting on a visitor so I'm trying to stay awake. Right now I'm not in any pain and am definitely thinking my csection hurt most. But who knows with all the drugs lol I will try and check in tmrw! Good luck to anyone in recovery right now or getting close to getting there surgery :)

2 days post op today and things are goin okay. Every time I take my pain medd I get really dizzy and some nausea and end up falling asleep. My stomach is gurgling a lot and i think I need to go to the washroom but can't just yet :( my breasts are really tight feeling today I can't wait to get past this. Anyone else going through this our gas experienced stuff like this ?

Well I wish I didn't attempt to spread out my meds because now I'm feeling the pain :( I'm trying to get my reg doses back on schedule and hopefully that helps. My tummy is still fine it's my breast that are tight and sore. I moved my arm alittle too fast earlier and felt a sharp burning sensation. I thought the boobs were suppose to be the easy part of this deal. Anyone else feeling like this?

Yay the drains are out!! And it hurt like a bitch, thinking about it is still making me cringe! I'm deformity not looking forward to getting the stitches out next week from my belly button and breasts. I'm not really happy with my scar :( but instead of getting depressed about it I've decided to wait it out. I'm only 1 week post op and I'm trying to remember it takes time to heal.

It's been awhile since I have had the chance to post. I will be 3 weeks post op tomorrow which I am so excited for! My ps said I can take my binder, steri strips off then and switch to a regular bra with no underwire. I have seen a few ladies on here who have worn the binder and strips longer, wondering if maybe I should continue those a little longer? My scar looks great a pencil thin line and its not even red! However there is a scab in the middle and I was told this will heal like any other scab you would have. My belly button scar is still light red and I can't wait for it to lighten, this is what I am most worried about!

Today is my first really down day :( I am starting to hate my belly button so much. It looks to me more like a half outtie on top with a little innie on the bottom. The scar on the bottom half is inside so you can't even see it but the top is on the outside and quite noticeable. Is this normal for 4 wks for it to still be so swollen and the scar so noticeable. My tummy tuck scar looks better to me than the belly button scar. I just started using mederma 4 days ago I'm hoping that will help with the scar but what about the overall look of it :( I feel like I may as well kept the sagging skin I still won't be able to wear a bikini if my belly button stays like this!

2 months post
Well I can't believe its been so long since I started this. I am very happy I did not everything went or turned out the way I expected but I can honestly say I am more confident and 100% happy I did this. I am absolutely in live with my new breasts lol! I was on the fence about then but they are a-mah-zing! My stomach is doing well and I know in even more time scars with fade swelling with fade and it will be so much better than what I ended up with after pregnancy geeze it already is ;) I tried working out but I feel so weak and my and get sore. I see my ps next week for the first time since surgery(seen the nurse twice) in 9 wks. Strange I know :| hopefully but next weekend I will back into the exercise to tone this tummy!
