  1. My surgery was the 18th and all went well. A couple of things I wish I had known. I found myself holding my tummy a lot, so when I got home I wrapped a waist belt (for those that lift heavy items) around my waist. Doc says it is fine as long as I don't wear it all the time as it may deplete my abdominal muscles. Having it on helps a lot when I move around a lot. The other thing is getting a liquid antibiotic. The ones given were large and horrible tablets that have to be crushed. The liquid is way easier. I got this from my PCP when I got home. If in lots of pain, you can get liquid pain med too. I had my PCP check me out when I returned home just as a precaution. All looks good.

    Right now I wish I had not done the surgery because it is REALLY hard, but I know in the next couple of weeks I will change my mind completely and will be SO GLAD that I have done this. I know my life will change and I am excited to see my transformation.
  2. There were supposed to be 8, but 1 guy backed out at the last minute.
