Let me began by saying honesty is the key, and if anyone is here to judge please don't read my story. I have battled with my weight sense childhood. November 2007 I chose to have a gastric bypass because the weight wasn't coming off fast to me from working out. So, a couple of my friends were getting lap bands and gastric bypasses and not even attempting to work out. At that time I felt some kind away about them losing the weight faster than me. I felt at the time to solve that problem I would join the band wagon, and my gastric bypass was done November 2007, and at that time my weight was 233 Ibs before the surgery. Since November 2007 I have had so many complications with the surgery. I had two bowel obstructions, and protein deficiency issues. With prayer, balance diet, exercise, and taking the proper medications, I am healed and ready for my tummy tuck. People ask me why do I want a tummy tuck when I have been through so much already? I know I want this because first and foremost when I take off my clothes I am unhappy with the excessive amount of skin, and the rashes that I get from it. I can't fit into women jeans because it seems they make them all low ride. I feel as much working out I do, my stomach doesn't match my work out. I have great faith that its okay for me to have this tummy tuck. I'm so excited but nervous at the same time.

I finally told my Mom last night that was having a TT! I didn't want to tell her because she is so against. Her statement to me was...You know I'm going to be there for you, even though I don't agree!" That's is what you call unconditional love. I had to let het know because I really don't trust my fiancé with taking care of me! He had the nerve to sake me can he go the work the next day? I told him heck no....So that set the alert...need to tell my mom because she is a true nurse and healthy cook:-)

Dr. Alspaugh has a great bedside manner! He was very confident about how happy I was going feel once I had the TT. I would reccomend him as one of the top ps in the Hampton Roads.
