Full TT with Lipo - Bristol, GB

After years of stalking real self and following...

After years of stalking real self and following gorgeous Barbie dolls.
Ive finally booked it, I toyed with the idea of travelling afar to the DR or Columbia for my procedure I've been nagged and bullied into making the sensible choice of staying close to home and going with Dr Simon Lee based at bristol Spire.
He is a great guy we instantly clicked on the first meet.
I told him my goals and he has said it is a realistic possibility.
Im hoping for a smaller tummy/waist with emphasis on my curves.
Having had 3 c sections plus an additional cut to my stomach due to wound infection my muscles are completely exhausted.
Pre ops are tomorrow and surgery is next Wednesday,
A consult fee of £120 was also required, my total is in UK pounds.
I do not agree with the attitude of his secretary and will be having a word with Mr Lee about her once Surgery has been completed.
Any hints or tips on preparation and recovery would be great.
Brought clothes, pillows, vitamins, arnica etc.

Can't believe it's finally here....

All these years and POW today is the day.
Hardly slept last night.
Just got up eating breakfast as I type as nil by mouth from 6.30 am.
Gonna get the tribe washed and dresses and off to school then away I go.

Eeeeek

All done now recovery mode

Tbh the whole experience was totally quick.
Went in Wednesday morning I was starving lol as no food after 6.30 am.
Was told I would be 2nd on the list and enders going down at around 5pm instead of 4.
All I remember is speaking with the anaesthetist then waking up and thinking I hadn't even been done yet lol.
I think the op took 3.5 hours and I returned to my room from recovery at around 11-12 pm.
I felt extremely nauseas and was sick a lot the next day.
On Thursday I struggled with hunger and vomiting.
The staff were really friendly and most of them don't make you feel as though your being a nuisance lol.
The food was good and substantial.
I wasn't in a lot of pain but ensured I had my meds on the dot around the clock.
I'm now at home after spending 2 nights there went in Wednesday and discharged Friday.
I had the drains out this morning that was uncomfortable.
Due back twice next week for dressing change and then dressing removal.
I've got a binder on now and have not yet seen my results I can't wait though.will upload pics once I've taken them
