Day 17 after Tummy Tuck
By flatat45 on 16 Aug 2012
I am a little sad and not sure if I am the only one feeling like this on day 17 after the surgery. I thought by now, I would be at least 90% healed, but instead I am feeling so overwhelmed, uncomforbable with that 24/7 and constant discomfort. It seems like I am still very swollen, when I sit down for long periods of time and stand up I feel like I have to move so slow. I am unable to rest at night in any other position, but face up with two pillows under my head and two pillows under my knees, yes, still, I also had to go to the doctor yesterday because it looks like some of the inscision open a little bit, since I went out this weekend to see my daughter play at an all weekend soccer tournamet and it was very hot and hummed outside. The scab of the incision stuck to the Spanx and it peeled off, causing the incision to bleed a little. I am back on antibiotics for the next 10 days. I have been adviced by my doctor to not wear anything that will press against the incsion, so no Spanx. I question should I be using something else, he said nothing. When I look in the mirror, I do see my new beautiful flat belly, still swollen, I really hope the swelling goes down completely, to be able to compare the before and after results. Please give me words of advice based on your knowledge and experience.
