I am a 33 year old mother of 3 boys, 14, 12, and 3, I am going in for a full tummy tuck, and lipo, I am super excited and scared at the same time, I don't have any stretch marks or a lot of extra skin, but my abdominal walls are so stretched that I always look like I'm 4 months pregnant, I am looking forward to not having to suck it in 24/7, but I am scared of the recovery. I've had 2 c sections, so I kinda know what to expect.. Hell! Lol, surgery is the 26th:)

I did it!!!!! Sore n bruised, can't stand up straight.. But that was to be expected...worst part is feeling helpless. Usually at this time of night I'm sippin on some red wine cooking dinner n hanging with the kids.. Now I'm in bed, doctors tomoro, scared to see what's under the bandage.. Drainage bags stay in for a week, or so, not a fan lol.. Hope everyone else is feeling fabulous:) Lorna
