I need someone to talk to thats in my situation. It's hard talking to people who don't really get it. Today makes my 7th week after TT. I'm still wearing the tummy wrap all day and to sleep. A couple times I have worn spanxs just to look right in my clothes. My Dr. said I can exercise after 6 weeks but when I walk to much,my stomach starts to tighten up. Before surgery I could walk 3 to 4 miles. I don't feel ready to do that yet. I'm still wearing elastic clothing because I feel uncomfortable in regular jeans. My stomach still very swollen with fluids. Some days better than others. I love the way the stomach look. So satisfied with results but getting just a little impatient with full results. My Doc said this could last up to six to nine months. If I knew what I know now. I still would have gotten it done but I would have been more prepared mentally to deal with it. I guess I'm here just to talk to someone who understands what I'm going through right now.
