"We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey", Kenji Miyazawa
Many people have asked me how I got through something so painful. I really don't have an answer other than I just did, I mean...I had to, what's the alternative..to not get through it? Idk. I just know my mind was set before the first pitch was thrown. I didn't think about the pain beforehand, instead I envisioned the results. And once it was done, I just tried to not let the pain win. I forged through it and took one day at a time. I mean, what else was I gonna do? I signed up for the shit, I wasn't gonna whine about it.
You can read more about why I made the decision to have this surgery in my article, "Why Did I Have a Body Lift Surgery?"
It is impossible to describe the pain you endure after multiple surgeries over your entire body. Separately, I would assume they would still be challenging, but to have them all done at once, uh...well...it is, in all honestly, hard to find the words.
Throughout my recovery, I sent out email updates to my closest loved ones. I thought by sharing one of these actual updates with you on my blog, it might give you a glimpse at how it feels to undergo a body lift surgery. This is NOT to scare you! It's only to prepare you should you ever make the same decision to have a body lift surgery like I did.
Love you all, love Gab
