Awesome idea bout the fridge!! Just before you wrote that I was thinking about other things around the house being up high enough for me, didn't even think of the things IN the fridge!!! Lol and definitely for my kids (6,3 & 2 years)
Not sure about my bed, I think it's high enough now... But will check it out ;-)
Thanks for your help :-)

How did you choose your surgeon? How do you know if your surgeon is going to be good before you see their work?

I had app with a lady she was so rude, won't be going to her. Df said doesn't matter if she's rude she might be a good surgeon *rolls eyes*
She told me it hurt less than a c section I surely cannot believe that!

I have to wait the 12 months for my PHI but still need to get down to my goal weight first.
Am wanting to get a lift and possibly implants at the same time.
I have only heard that it's more painful than a c-section which worries me a bit but am sure it would be worth it.

Yes I've had the surgery!! 5 months ago now :-)
Honestly, don't choose your surgeon based on the assistant, while mine wasn't rude she is quite abrupt and straight to the point which could be taken as rude but my surgeon was/is a lovely man!
However, she shouldn't be telling you that it's easier than a c-section, it's not!! Honestly having the Caesar to compare it to is helpful as a guide but the two don't really compare in my opinion. Saying that though I thought my 3 c-section were quite 'easy', meaning I recovered very fast and with minimal pain etc.
The tummy tuck- its not the large hip-to-hip incision that causes the pain and discomfort but the sewing together of the abdominal muscles! Because of this you aren't able to stand straight which instantly makes your back KILL! You sit, lay and sleep in a V shape; legs and back propped up.
The pain pumps and drains are awkward and uncomfortable. You can not sneeze or cough. Lucky for me this didn't happen til the second week, a sneeze got me by surprise and I literally screamed out an F-bomb and burst into tears it was that bad!!!! My DH thought one of our kids had jumped on me or something!
I was given zofran tablets in case I felt sick so I wouldn't dry retch or vomit, that would be extremely painful!! Thank goodness that didn't happen. I also weaned myself off the strong pain meds on about day 5, and I only did 2 nights on the endone, it's way too strong for me I couldn't sleep on it.
Happy to answer any questions :-)
And in saying all that, I'd totally do it again!

I had bad separated stomach muscles after my 2 c sections (even 2 years after the last one) and looked into a TT but was turned off by the fact it was major surgery with a long recovery time. After my 2 c sections I feel like ive had enough surgeries for a while. I ended up seeing a personal trainer that specialises in post natal exercise. I have been working with her for about a year now, she does lots of exercises on strengthening my core. I have seen a huge amount of improvement (only really in the last few months even though Ive been doing it for a year) and my stomach has closed 2 finger widths and while its not model material and still seperated I certainly feel alot more confident.
