  1. 10 days pre op

    Gosh! I love it on here. So much to read and take in. I've got so many helpful hints from all. Thank you.

  4. Daily post

    Well, I'm nearly into the 2 week count down mode.
    I've looked in the wardrobe, thinking how great it'll be to get rid of these big clothes and buy new ones. My clothes are so daggy. I'm not wearing saggy baggy black track pants ever again.
    I've just come in from the garden, trying to get it ready for summer, putting mulch down.
    Again, I've come in stuffed and sweaty. Just thinking it'll be so much easier with the extra weight off.
    I won't miss the excess under the boob ...
