This feel like it's a dream. I have less then 24 hours and I will have a flat tummy. I am nervous as hell and excited as ever. I really pray that everything goes fine I have to beautiful children that are my everything. I pray that this surgery fix all my tummy issues. I'm speaking it into existence that everything is going to be great. Amen. On my way to the flat side.

I made it!!!!

I joined the team!!! I'm already so glad I did it. I don't know how to change the setting on the site but my surgery was Thursday July 21. I started promptly at nine o'clock they was moving fast from the moment I walked threw the door. I got to recovery at 12 and at 12:45 I was getting discharge paperwork. The staff were amazing the crna and all the techs made me feel so comfortable and relaxed because I was a nervous reck. I slept most of the day afterwards. Hopefully I can do the same between walking every 2 hours because everyone says day 2 is the hardest we immediately see.

Drains. Pain meds. Walking.

Well 3 days post opt. The drains are getting on my nerves. I see the doctor tomorrow hopefully they can remove them. They are really a pain in the butt. On side stop draing the second day. Call office they said most likely Monday they will come out. I'm completely off the hydrocodone I haven't took on since yesterday morning. I have been taking Tylenol. As needed I only took two today. I took a laxative yesterday after alot of gas I finally had a bowel movement today. Yayyy felt good. I have been drinking more fluids then I have been eating I have been really using my protein shakes as meals cause 2 bites in and I'm full so I have been drinking those. I have been walking alot. So far I'm very happy with everything I can't wait to see my belly tomorrow. This girdle that they have me on i can't wait to get out of it it zips on both sides and it's flat out uncomfortable. I will update tomorrow after my appointment.

1 week post opt

So I made it to 1 week post op I'm finally feeling like this was worth it. Day 2 and 3 I just wanted to die. When she took them drains out of me I thought of a million ways to kill her in my head. But today makes a week and I'm feeling so much better just being in the house is driving me nuts. I'm a very busy person usually and sitting on my butt all day is killing me slowly. Lol I finally seeing some of my results I'm very swollen still but now I feel like it's kinda worth it.

Almost 5 weeks post op

Well alot has changed. To start I love love love love my results I mean I love them. Okay im on the last link of my stage two garment I refuse to buy another one the doctor told me most of my swelling is gone and that when he see me for my 6 week appt he wants me to stop wearing it. Yayyyyyy!!! Cause I hate it! Lol I still do swell in the evening but that's expected. My body feels at a 85 percent like I feel good but not 100. I can't wait to go back to the gym I'm itching so bad for a good work out some cardio something I have been maintaining my weight 137-140 but I really wanna tone and squat. My incision look really good and flat he said I can't start the scar treatment on the 29th when I see him they suggested biocorneum cream it 50 bucks in the office I read so many review on scar treatment I don't know which is best pre surgery I bought bio oil. Now I'm thinking scar away strips. Or the cream from the doctors office. I'm back to work full time it feels good but I get really tired at night. Loving my body I know it can't only get better from here I know the first two weeks I wanted to die but now I would do it a million times over again.

6 weeks today

I made it to 6 weeks I was released Monday to work out from the doctor. I feel good I think I can do some cardio and and arms work outs. He told me to listen to my body and don't over do it. I'm still swollen like everyone else. I don't see the doctor again til 3 months I wanna get it the gym and look even better when I see him. I'm really glad I went thru with this surgery i love my results I am more confident and happy.

Love my results

Tampa Plastic Surgeon

I met with Dr. Welsh thurs 14th for my 3:30 pre opt appointment. My nerves where all over the place about this surgery I had a million questions and he answered them all I didn't feel rushed. Amazing bedside manner. He made me feel so much better about having this procedure done. I know he will do a amazing job I've heard from so many people that he is a perfectionist which is a plus cause I want to wake up perfect. Can't wait to see what Thursday holds.
