Surgery tomorrow 7/11

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! So my TT/lipo and fat transfer is all set to go ahead tomorrow. I'm quietly terrified but also excited. I know recovery will be hard but it's short term pain for long term gain, I keep repeating this mantra to myself to make sure I don't panic.

I'll post here whenever I am able to post surgery. I'd better take pre photos now because this is HAPPENING! TOMORROW!

Wish me well!

thank you all very much! just had my last glass of water tonight. and, funnily enough, taking the before shots just reminded me why I'm doing this in the first place!

Meant to wish you luck! I was the same when taking my pre shots, made me excited thinking 'this will all be gone today'. Surreal really. So how did it go?

Hi ladies!

So i write to you snuggled on the couch, safe and sound at home.

I'm feeling good, remarkably good and in fact I'm very surprised and wondering when the pain will set in!

Here's my run down of the day's events.

I went in at 8.30 am to Avenue Plastic Surgery. The nurse gave me a run down of the day's events, which was then followed by a visit with the anaesthetist, and then my PS who marked me up. I was first cab off the rank today; went in, was given the general and knocked out in about 2 minutes! I came to pretty early on, back in my room. Nothing hurt except for my breasts, which felt very tender especially the nipple. I was given endone and some other goodies, after which I slept blissfully till about 1pm.

When I woke I was bright and cheerful. I ate half a piece of toast, and drank some apple juice. The dreaded sensation of needing to pee then struck me; I Was nervous about moving! But it was all fine! I needed minimal assistance with the walking technique, but managed everything else easily. At 3.30 Dad came and picked me up; I was able to get into the car and pivot with minimum discomfort. We got home 15 minutes later, where I plonked myself on the coach surrounded by stacks of pillows.

Ladies I feel great! I am able to move and go to the bathroom independently, although I do require assistance sitting up before standing. All else is fine. I am taking the main meds at the schedule provided and it seems sufficient. My thighs from lipo are sore, breasts are now not sore at all. Tummy feels like I totally overdid it at the gym and then some, but at this time it appears very manageable. I am able to sleep with knees up and slightly to one side, provided they're also propped up on pillows. I wasn't expecting that, I thought I'd be on my back all the time so this is a huge relief!

As for nausea, I'm generally strong stomached (every pun intended!) but I've taken anti nausea twice today, was on the verge of losing toast but have somehow kept everything down. I'm a bit thirsty but too much water sets off the nausea so I'm trying to go easy.

Tomorrow I am back to see my PS at 10am, at which time the two drains I believe will be removed, if all is well. I will also get to SEE!

Emotionally, I can't describe how I feel. Hugely relieved I am okay; worried that this is just day one and then it will go downhill; elated that this journey has finally begun and I am on the way to being flat stomached and more boobied! I'll post again tomorrow after I see my PS.

Nivy xx
