So my surgery is tomorrow, I am really nervous now. Just wondering if any one has ANY advise(the good bad and ugly) for me. I have 5 children 1 by c-section the other 4 with no medication, just wondering how the pain is in comparison. Cant wait till this is behind me by a few months and I can actually enjoy it :). I would appreciate anything you guys can add. I have already found this site very helpful and enjoy reading everyone elses experiences. I have taken the advice of buying bigger underwear, clothing, and even purchased an electric recliner......thanks for all of those little bits of advice.

You need not be worry, talk to your surgeon that you are nervous he will guide you better.

sooooo I had my surgery wednesday I am now 2 days post op. I feel pretty good. Saw my new stomach yesterday at my post op appoint( dressing change) already amazing results. I am just going to try to deal with the back pain from crunching over other than that started just taking tylenol extra strength rather than the percocet still on the muscle relaxer and blood thinner. talk to you guys soon :D

I am one week post op today-TT. Got my drain out today...yea! I can say the back pain is the WORST! I had 3 csections before and feel they were more painful than the TT pain. I have kept up with my pain meds and it has been pretty smooth so far. I did get out today for first time and it was a bit draining physically. Rest and take it easy...Good Luck! It gets better everyday.

Thanks for the encouragement. Each day I am trying to stand a little straighter. Today I am up a little straighter, but feel burning near the incision underneath my one breast so I am going to listen to my body and hunch a little lower. Its so frustrating when you're used to being on the move as all of you understand Im sure, it just helps me to say it. Thanks again for writing some of your experience it really helps.

Welp yesterday was my 5 day post op visit and one drain down one to go. My stomach is still very puffy but I can tell it will be much better than it was. Still working on full range of motion with my left arm due to the breast lift and augmentation, but the right arm has a little more range I guess cause I am a righty and use that arm more frequently. I was able to take my surgical ted stockings off.....I think I'm in heaven and I even get to shower today, I am a little nervous about that though. I go back to the PS on Thursday and will get the other drain removed:D looking forward to that it's a little more freedom. Talk to you guys soon.

Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift in Mexico
Hi Everyone,

I am new to the site :)
I am scheduled to have my TT and Lift on Friday May 18th in Tijuana by Dr. Manuel Gutierrez.

My question is for those of you that have had surgery abroad or in Mexico, what is your travel like post surgery, I will be staying in San Diego post surgery for 7 days, having my drains removed, then flying home Saturday the 26th. My husband will be accompanying me and is trying to get first class but not sure if that is available since we are using miles to fly.

How was your pain flying, I live in Alaska, so our flight is not too bad, and we have to change planes one time coming back,
Also any advice you can give me as I am recovering :)
