I have been planning a TT for the last 12 years. Since having my last child. It was a present to myself, from myself and my husband. I had two consults last year, and decided to think it over a little longer. Finally decided to go with one doctor only to find she wasn't there anymore. But the Dr. who took her place was a gem. I liked him right off the bat. Consult went well, Primary doctor consult and blood work went well. I set up my surgery date, and started aggressive strength and core training for 4 weeks. That alone made this so much more easier. I had my surgery 2.23.12. Just yesterday morning. My pain is very well managed, drains are doing their things, and my 1st post op was great.

Today was an even better day. Up and moving as...

Today was an even better day. Up and moving as much as possible. I think the few weeks of intense core and strength training are making this a much better recovery than if I hadn't.

I am guessing that I should have given a little more background info. I am now 37y.o. I have weighed in at 204lbs and am 5'6. I have three kiddos total, 17, 14 and 12. 2 were via c-sections.

Today has probably been the hardest so far. More along the lines of I feel fine, so why am I not doing more. I finally slept in my bed last night, to the tune of 7 hours. Yay!

One week post op...YAY!!! I went in yesterday and had one drain removed. Not painful at all. More of a "thank you Jesus" moment. I am still coming along good. I am a little more swollen today than before, but if this is as much swelling as I get, I am counting myself lucky!

I am up and moving outside of the house now. It's awesome! Just counting down the days until I get this other drain out.

I am now 18 days post op. Drains are out. That second drain hurt like the dickens when it came out on day 13. Was NOT prepared for that kind of pain. Adding updated photos. Skills having swelling more on one side than the other. Still very happy about having had this done.

Over a month has gone by. I am still numb around the incision site. Have lost 10 pounds since surgery and my clothes fit better.

The doctor and his staff are very informative about their craft and skill set. They always called me back within one business day, and I was always treated with respect and overall courtesy.
