Good for you. I had plastic surgery in 2014 & don't regret it for even one second. 

Good luck! 

Keep us posted on your progress.

How was the pain?  Im pretty good with pain but Ive heard the abdominal is the worse. How long were you out of work?  I was told 2 weeks. Any tips/advice?  Dis you have jp drains?  How ling did you have them for if you did.

My arms where A *****!!!

for me, stomach not bad at all..

i was on pain killers for about 4 days 

after that I didn't need them all the time

i took them at nite to help sleep for an additional day or so...

But, at the time I was really like, what did I do!

now, loving it, but it's definatly a process..

i am at home, but once I could get up and down by myself

At 1week, it was a lot better...

i was feeling fairly Ok after all the drains where gone..

but lightheaded and weak...and I was also not completly 

walking upright for over a month ( although, it was very slight..

i could tell and so could my hubby)

also, I had muscle tightening, so I wasn't cleared for anything for 8 weeks... 

 

EDITED TO ADD:

i had 5 drains, 3 where removed after a week, the other 2 the following week..

also on blood thinner shots for 5 days... Not a regret after seeing the final result!

he may be too far for you, but I suggest looking on Dr.Joseph Capella's web site

His specialty is dealing with massive weight loss patients...hes BEYOND AWESOME!!!!!

Yay!! So excited for you!! I am definitely planning on looking into this in the future! I have also never had a flat tummy ever so I'm sure it will be quite a shock!
