Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Going under the knife

Well, it is only nine days away.

*insert deep sigh here*

I know it is going to be great in the long run, but I'm getting so nervous that I may puke several times in the next week. Hey, new weight loss program to accompany my *excision, excess skin and subcut tissue (incl. lipectomy) abdomen*. (psst, in other words, it is a tummy tuck). That drawn out explanation is what it read in my insurance approval letter.

I know I'm going to look better and I'll get the *ahem* excess skin issue fixed. But, I'm scared. I go to the surgeon tomorrow for my pre-op consult. I am hoping he alleviates some of my fears, but I worry that they will only increase my anxiety level when I know more.

Gees. I wish I could earn money from worrying. I'd be a millionaire. No, a gazillionaire.

    Nothing to worry about. None of what they are going to do will breach the abdominal wall, so you're missing out on a shitload of the possible complications of major surgery. And, you've been under before, so there's no huge scare there.

    But you are going to worry yourself sick anyway, I realize this.

    I'm just sayin'

    I came across your blog the other day... worrying and googling myself nuts... then a dear friend sent me the link today... I so get it! I'm 10 days away from hernia repair (ins. is covering that) and panniculectomy/abdominoplasty (Ins won't cover, paying myself because the hernia surgeon says if not done, might adversly affect the hernia repair)
