    I was off work for a little under three weeks. This was all out of pocket and had to use vacation time. I was fine going back to work and I have a very physical job at times,

    The recovery was pretty easy I thought it would be more painful, just took Percocet for a few days. The drains were annoying but other than that it wasn’t bad.

    I had mine when I was 26... 28 now and maintaining 150 lb loss with normal BMI of 23. Only regret was not doing it sooner.

    I lost all my excess weight really fast. I maintained for 4 months then had it done. I went to the top PS in my area. The results look even better now... I paid 14k total including one night stay for pain control in hospital

    Recovery was not bad . Pain/uncomfortable for first day or two then just tired . Pubic area wasn't that bad but it looks better now with the skin tightening during tummy tuck. Very happy with results. Had lipo of flanks/love handles as well.
  7. Yes pre op. Never used it or know where it is tho lol. Nothing on kids menu is usually WLS friendly IMHO besides portion size *sometimes*

    Excess skin removal!

    It went great! recovery was a breeze after the first and second day post op just like my vsg surgery . So relieved for it to be done! Was expecting a long rough recovery.

    Excess skin removal!

    It has been super good so far! I knew it would be worse than the sleeve and was very nervous but really after the first day or two just some soreness and really tired easily. Definitely worth doing for me, no regrets.
  10. One week post op from my tummy tuck and excess chest skin removal surgery! So thrilled with results so far.
  11. My doctor doesn't even want us using protein shakes and bars . Try to get it all from "real" food is my recommendation and supplement with something tolerable as needed. Real animal protein is significantly less calories and much more filling in my opinion than "candy bar" inspired protein bars.

    im a male and am 3 days post op TT and chest reduction/tightening. What questions do you have?
  13. Hi everyone who has had plastic surgery after significant weight loss! Please if you would be so kind to give me your advice. Im currently day 3 post op from full tummy tuck/lipo and bilateral lateral chest wall excision to tighten my chest and back from losing all this weight. I am obviously still focusing on mainly protein but was wondering what your diet looked like after having any type of plastic surgery? I am so so scared to gain any weight since my activity levels and all that is extremely restricted for the time being. Any diet plans, menu examples, regimens, recommendations, etc would be greatly greatly greatly appreciated! Thank you and have a nice day everyone!
  14. No judgement here! But you need to try to postpone or use someone else's. Yes it is stored in fat and as you burn off fat it gets released into your system rapidly and excreted in urine.... so if your still losing and burning a lot of Cals I would steer clear of testing. My only advice is till now until test be as sedentary as possible and eat high protein high fat foods to temporarily inhibit your body from burning off the thc in your fat cells
