    Tummy Tuck in Chicago

    For the abdominal piece you may be able to use sick leave/take FMLA. Diastasis recti repair is considered medical. I was able to take 3 weeks of sick leave for mine.
  2. I’m a nurse, I was working on an addiction medicine team until late last year. We typically did keep our patients on their suboxone dose post op and treated for pain with short acting full agonist opiates like dilaudid in the immediate post op period.

    Sex Drive

    Yes! Between the weight loss and getting started on HRT (I’m 52 and menopausal) my libido is as high as it’s ever been. One of the many benefits of this surgery :)

    Iced Coffee

    I make my own cold brew coffee and mix it half and half with a premier protein shake. It’s my breakfast every day.

    Thank you-you too! Being new to the area I don’t really know people in healthcare outside of Unity. It is a crazy time to work in the medical field for sure!

    How many tacos one year out?

    I usually order 2 street tacos (which are pretty small). They always come with 2 corn tortillas each, I guess to hold in the juices. I always eat one full taco but take off the 2nd tortilla, then just eat the insides of the second taco.

    GTL & Sophie! I’m so jealous! You both look fabulous. And yes, Kris, I love to do a big meet up. Girls weekend in Vegas? Palm Springs? Napa for wine tasting? I’m there!

    Not so much an OOTD as a reflection. I flew in to Dublin yesterday to attend The Frames concert this evening. Not only was I (relatively) comfortable in my coach seat for 9 hours, I was able to buy a size small sweatshirt at the show and had no worries about whether they would have one that fits me or not.
  13. This was my favorite arm compression garment. So comfy! I started with a medium, but as swelling went down ended up ordering a small. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07B59QGY3?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

    These are all gorgeous, but I especially love the blush colored one. You are going to be the hot mama of the resort!
