Surgery before kids ? & what to expect after ..



Recommended Posts

Hi all

I am booked in for surgery next week.

is it silly to do this before I have children?

any tips on really what to expect post operation? I really want to understand what life will be like after this?

my job and life is quite social so I feel I will struggle to adjust at first and to cancel a lot of plans last minute

i am not telling anyone other than my husband about the surgery / is it hard to hide?

what are peoples weight loss journeys like post op?

sorry for all the questions!!

#1 I'm sure it's safe to have kids post- op, I would lose all the weight 1st and hold off on any skin surgeries. Your doc should have discussed this with you though

#2 dont have any post op tips yet

#3 who you tell, is your business, it's your surgery and your life

#4 your social life doesnt need to fully change with kids, well I guess it depends on what u do socially lol...but new mom/dad friends, outdoor activities, theme parks, etc. Kids will keep u busy and active

Good luck [emoji177]
