Pampered Chef: OT: I did it! Plastic Surgery!!!

    I had my surgery today, the luck of the Irish was with me!!! Had my Panniculectomy and a Breast Lift needed due to the results of my weight loss from Gastric Bypass surgery year and a half ago, I'm down 130lbs! I'm staying over night in the hospital only because my insurance covered it and the hospital is about an hour and a half away from my home so I thought it best. I should be heading home first thing tomorrow morning after my surgeon gives me a checkup. My husband is staying close by in a hotel room as I'm in a shared hospital room, the hospital got him a great deal in an acceptable CLEAN place, we're pretty impressed and thankful.

    I am SO happy thus far, recovery has not been bad at all, I've been up and moving around already. I'm pretty doped up on meds so I'm sure tomorrow will be worse, but as of right now I'm in GREAT spirits! I can't wait to see what it all looks like when I'm not bound up. This has been an amazing experience thus far! Thanks again for everyone's support, it feels special

    Congrats Darcy - I still need to do more tuck work and stuff but I run a fever after surgery since my GB - I have lost over 140 although some of it has been hard fought. My surgery was over 11 years ago. I am working on that last 20-30 lbs.
    I am now certified as a personal trainer working on my second certification. Hard to believe the girl that was 310 lbs has made that big a change.

    My DH is going to be having GB soon. He is starting the process right now. I am happy that he is finally getting serious about his health. :)

    Congrats Darcy! I hope you have a speedy recovery. I just had a friend get a tummy tuck after losing a lot of weight - she LOVES it!
