That’s the problem with doing too much research and becoming too informed.

You get scared.

Have to remember that most tummy tucks go off without a hitch. It’s only the bad ones that you read about. The people who had no problems don’t write in.

The best thing to do between now and then is to keep busy and take your mind off of it.

Dwell on what it’s going to be like after the operation. Do research on nutrition, exercise, fitness and other self improvement stuff that you can work on after the surgery is over.

Good luck.
