Hi All

I'm new to iVillage but I was looking for a place to talk about the surgery.

i am 8 months post op. the best thing i could have done. not one regret. at 6 weeks i was still sore, and not able to lift heavy things still. you may not want to try those things that soon. hope you have a great recovery and have fun on your cruise. maybe someone else on here can give you some advice on those things. i personally wouldnt take the chance. may tear something because you really arent 100% healed at only 6 weeks out. good luck!!

2 months sounds better but still i dont know. good idea to ask the doc. i waited for years to get this done so i was so careful not to screw anything up. i think i healed pretty good. very rare now that i get those sharp pangs from the nerves healing and the scars are looking pretty good too. your welcome for answering your post. i am happy to give any insight on this. i came on here when i was looking into this and the ladies on here we so nice and helpful. it eased my mind knowing others have been through it and could offer me advice. everyone was supportive for me but my mom was a little weary. she changed her mind when she saw how happy I was. they will come around. dont let anyone discourage you. your doing this for your health and it is the best thing i could have done and would do it again in a heartbeat. good luck and keep us posted!!

Well, I'm glad to know, though I'm not sure I'm too happy about that.

Hi!!
Well I just read your letter and realized that you had the surgery last Friday!! Woo hoo! Can't wait to hear how you made out and how you are feeling. Hopefully everything went smoothly for you and you are amazed at your new girls. OF course it will take a while for them to get to their true new shape, but you should have an idea and already feel different and lighter!
Stay in touch and let us know how its going.
You should be all ready for that great cruise!!
Nancy :)
