My operation (Mini Tummy Tuck & Lipo) is in 5 days. I am excited to finally be so close to a new me physically. I am already thinking about my next holiday in the sun without being conscious about my stomach. I have decided to have my mom come with me on the day I go in just for peace of mind. I am a little worried about the level of pain as I know what it means to have a c-section but Lipo on top of this? I know in my heart it will all be worth it.
Treatment Day - I had a private room at the Queen Elizabeth hospital with a TV and bathroom. I cannot compliment the staff enough, each and everyone of them are lovely and caring. Dr Vijh can to see me, drew all over my stomach and put me at ease with his calming way. When it was time I was wheeled down to theatre, the procedure lasted about 2 hours. The nurses then monitor you very closely so not much sleep I am afraid but at least you know your in safe hands. I had my op on Saturday 8th Dec 18, it’s now Tuesday 11th and I am surprised at how well I feel, It’s not really painful more a bit sore on your stomach when you get up and down.
Other than this I am amazed at how well I feel.
