Has anyone’s spouse been unsupportive of plastic surgery?

My husband is on board with plastic surgery as long as our insurance will cover it. I'm hoping to have it by next summer. I am 11 months post-surgery and have lost 116 lbs and want to lose 18 more pounds.

No coverage here for plastic surgery unless extremely medically necessary

Well the first round my spouse was supportive. Fairly so when I had my arms done. By round 3 thigh lift he dropped me off at the hospital and I had a private duty nurse for a few days. The last one there were complications and he came through bringing me back to the doc, the ER and running to the pharmacy. ... overall I suppose he has been supportive if not for the last Surgery - he is my emotional rock. He is awesome and clearly does not fully understand but does except. He was less understanding of the WLS which was very very scary for him. As for the money aspect... I used mostly the money allocated for my extra expenses. All said it was the price of a car. I do not think my spouse ever fully understood how uncomfortable it was for me physically. I spread the surgery out over three years and you better believe he has a new car.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
