No Pain - Oakland, Ca

I am 34, the mother of 3 children ages 6, 4, and 2...

I am 34, the mother of 3 children ages 6, 4, and 2. All delivered via c-section. I am 5'2 and my weight fluctuates between 120 and 125, which isn't bad!!! However, after those babies my weight shifted to various parts of my body. The most disturbing area was my stomach. I still looked pregnant. I had to buy clothes to camouflage my stomach.

My oldest child always asked if I had another baby in there. I've been wanting a TT forever, but I didn't have my husbands support. Finally I decided that this is something that I wanted to do for myself and was going to proceed with it. So I secretly went on consultation after consultation. Finally the 4th Dr. was the one. I then built up enough courage to tell my husband of my decision. I even provided him pictures and explained to him no matter how many sit-ups I do it will not matter because my muscles are non-functioning.

Ok to sum it up, my husband still wasn't in support, bit he did agree to come to my pre-op appt and he took a week off of work (he is such a blessing). Today I am 9 days PO and I have not had to take ANY pain meds and I have been mobile since I got home. My results thus far look cool, however this binder isn't that comfortable, but when it's off briefly while I'm in the shower I feel like I need the support back. Based on others reports on here I am feeling that my results are not normal, I am praying that everything is ok with me.

Please don't do to much because your not in pain. The whole area is numb so you won't feel if there is something going on. I read to many stories where ladies felt so good, they were doing to much to soon. No matter how good you feel please take it slow. That surgery is major. No deep cleaning or loading and picking up heavy things.
No pain !?! Wow, that is awesome! How are you doing now?
Glad you made a decision to do what's best for you, I know it's hard without that support. Sounds like you're extremely lucky to have no pain, it's funny how even good things can make us worry some times :) I hope your recovery continues to go so well!

The Dr. was awesome. From our initial conversation I knew he was the one. He was very honest and didn't sugarcoat anything. His entire staff was helpful!
