i had a full tummytuck 17 days ago, i am concerned about the swelling i have. i also have a baby that weighs 17 pounds that i recently had to pick up in his car seat, i'm hoping i did not tear or rip a internal stitch.
i was told by staff at the surgeons office that i could pick up my baby after a week, i wish i would have researched it better. but by reading info online about it they say about 4 to 6 weeks before lifting anything heavier then 10 pounds. i am really freaking out about it, i had child care the first week, but it is hard to have round the clock childcare unless you have a live-in nanny which i dont have.Lifting baby and tummy tuck - just wanting some info about what i should do, and lifting baby.
