So, here I am, swollen again. I am getting so depressed that I am still not flat. Yes I look better than before my tt, but not where I want to be. I have just started walking on my treadmill, only 15 minutes, and afterward o get so swollen.

The swelling can last a long time. I am over 16 weeks and I still swell almost every day. Some days are pretty bad.....some days are good. It's better than it was, but it's slow going for some of us. Hopefully, you won't take as long as me!

Hi! Nanny938, I am going to be using Dr.C. Herman for my TT. I would like to know how things are going with you now and if there is any other advice you can give me. Thank you

I am at 3 months and swelling is getting much better! Hang in there. Get some exercise and keep wearing your binder. It helps!

Hi there - I am 8 1/2 weeks po and I am feeling your frustration. I know I am not as far as you but I dont think any of us were prepared mentally for this. Even when we gave birth to our children we were up and about, but this is the first time I have felt completely helpless with what my body is doing. All I do know is that the people on this forum have made me feel that I am not alone in feeling like this. It WILL end. Keep going.....

This process takes time so hang on..I know this is very frustrating but there is no way to rush this recovery.  

Deep breath and chin up:)
