  1. I only stayed in hospital overnight and left 20 hours after surgery . I had the drains for 8 days which made doing anything very difficult . Once the drains were out I was doing most things except hanging washing or picking up 18 month old . I work in an office so I was able to go back after a week . Bending down took about 10 days
  2. October will be here before you know it and the results will be well worth the weight . I am so glad I had my TT and cannot wait for summer
  3. That's dissapointing for your friend I hope she found someone that could help . I can only speak of my experience and am very happy with my results so far

  6. I'm great been back at the gym since 4.5 weeks post op . I had to take it easy for the first couple of weeks I'm nearly back to weights pre tummy tuck . I still have a lot of swelling above the mons /pubic area but other then that feeling really good
  7. I had my TT 7 weeks ago after 7 babies 2 of which were c-section and it was so worth it .

  10. The gas man charges and hourly rate so the longer it takes the more he charges . I had a TT in Newcastle 5 weeks ago and my gas man cost $1500
  11. Im also 3 weeks post op and having the same sleeping issues . I go to bed around 11.30 really tired but am still wide awake at 2am . I'm going to try sleeping without the garment tonight and see if that makes a difference.
