    Tummy Tuck 8/21

    Out of curiosity, if you don't mind, how much total did this run you? I'm only 7 weeks out from my DS, but it'll be interesting to know for possible future plans.
  2. Telling or not is completely up to you. But don't let other people opinions dictate what you do in your life. You know why you are doing what you are doing; anyone in your life that can't respect that, isn't worth being involved in your life anyway.

    I disagree, I am 4 weeks out and get about 800-1000 calories a day in. What you want for a caloric intake will be affected by what surgery you had more than anything else. No disrespect to anyone, but I would trust the team that rearranged your insides rather than us random people on the internet.
  4. One thing I wonder is about the preop diet people that had a lot of pain were on. I have heard that if the liver isn't shrunk enough, it causes a lot of pain right after surgery.

    What surgery are you having? I know I'm sore too expect to stay 2-3 nights for a DS

    Dr Pushing for sleeve

    Well, I know he does the full DS, but I don't want to go to another practice because it will screw my insurance and cost me a crapton of money. I just don't get why he is trying to push one over the other, when I have many reasons why i want the full DS, not the least of which is to avoid a second damn surgery.
