Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Are my Tummy Tuck Expectations Unrealistic?
I don't have a lot of time available to take off work and was wondering if it's possible for me to have a TT on a Friday, take the next week off, and return the following Monday (so 9 full days off work). I have a sitting job - not much physical involved, and a co-worker said she'd help me if anything did need lifted or whatever. Is it possible for me to go back to work after 9 days?
My previous surgeries, and recovery, include: c/section - 1994, up and around following day, cleaning hospital room two days later 'cuz I was going stir crazy (LOL) laparoscopic tubal ligation, 2003 - hockey game 3 days later ablation, 2006 - no down time supra-cervical hysterectomy, 2008 - took a week off work and went stir crazy.
Went shopping 3 days post surgery, and while "uncomfortable" was still able to walk the mall and go to a parade later that evening. Any advice is appreciated (and I realize I need to talk to my PS myself).
You should be fine.
