I have decided to get a tummy tuck, finally. I'm married, 36, 3 children..and a saggy belly to weigh me down
I am planning on having it done in March. I am a bit of a 'different case'. I had a reconstructive vaginal surgery 3 years ago and have suffered great complications. To the point of me now being on permamnet disability and chronic back pain for the rest of my life.
My question is, how MUCH does it really hurt? Since I am a chroinc pain patient my tolerance to acute pain is not very good at all and I worry about pain control afterwards since I am already taking far stronger things then what he would prescribe..i* think*. My family dr said he may just give me Percocet. Would that be enough?? Is the pain in your back and hips as well or just tummy?
I have a million more questions but I'm not sure if anyone will even read/reply to this so I won't type a novel yet..lol.
If anyone has any questions about anything...ask away.
I don't know anyone personally who has had a tt..and I don't have anyone to speak with about this. My husband is 'ok' some days with it but insists I don't need it.
So needless to say I need a friend to talk with about this.
Having the tuck will make me feel much better about myself, I need that..we all need that! Ever since that surgery, my life has took a turn for the worst and I need to feel like a woman again and like the person I see in the mirror. Chroinc pain is really hard to deal with and it affects your whole family sadly.
I am looking forward to meeting you ladies and making some friends
