My experience was overall pretty good. I am happy about looking better in my clothes. I am unhappy that I feel so tight all the time, I can only eat about half of what I used to without feeling completely uncomfortable, and the worst part is the stretch marks that are left are huge, raised and exaggerated because they are swollen. They are more prominent that before.
I have three children and and in good physical condition.I got tired of every body part changing except my abdomen. I had loose skin and stretch marks.
I had a tummy tuck a little over 4 weeks ago. I developed a hematoma and had it drained. For some reason, my body will not stop collecting fluid. I "leak" from that drain site every day. Although I go to my ps and get the area right above it drained daily and the amounts are less and less every day, the next day, I am leaking again. I feel like a faucet and I am tired of the moisture. My drain site is not an open wound, yet fluid finds its way out of that area. My last visit, my ps aspirated 20 cc's, compared to 60 3 days earlier. Why can't my body absorb this on its own?
Over a year later, and I feel and look great....
