It is now just over five months from my initial weight loss skin removal surgery in November yet here I am going back for another surgery. I never anticipated I’d have any other surgeries after the first.
The first surgery removed excess skin from my stomach & annoying under arm skin. The second was to remove the painful skin that folded over my bra, which I, nor my surgeon, anticipated becoming as big of a physical pain as it did. That 2nd surgery turned out not to fix the entire painful problem so my 3rd surgery is to remove the rest of the skin from surgery #2.
It is not my intention to go back for additional surgeries, at least and especially any time soon. I am very happy with my progress this far and very happy with my decisions to gave the surgeries. I’ll share arm photos after this next round of surgery but am excited to share updated photos of my stomach.
I came home from work tonight, mentally ready for tomorrows surgery. I don’t feel very nervous, maybe because the idea of surgery, even for the 3rd time, still seems so surreal. Last night, I cleaned a couple bathrooms and made a couple dinners for next week (chicken pot pie & ham/veggie pasta dish.) I also made a ham we can pick at throughout the weekend. On top of the lasagna I froze last week, we are set for the next week!
I’ve been saving my recorded shows for this weekend and also plan on addresses our wedding invitations. I have a book I want to finish reading and plan on taking a lot of naps.
I have to arrive by 6am for prep, surgery starts at 7am. It is expected to be a 2 hour surgery so I should be done and recovering by 9:30am.
So ready? Here I go!
