I'm only 4 days post surgery and I'm very please with the results already. I was surprised and relieved at how little pain I felt after day 2. I just assumed it would be at least a week or so given the tummy tuck incision. I have yet to experience any complications of any kind. By the beginning of day 4, I began only taking the Arnica for bruising and the antibiotics. As good as the results look already, I'm ecstatic at how good it will all look in two months from now.
My external nasal splint came off on day three and the nurse responded within five minutes with detailed instructions. Very efficient and professional. I'm having an excellent experience overall. I'll try to get some photos uploaded soon.
It's been 3 months and overall healing is normal...

My nose is at about 60% functionality compared to my other nostril. I had thought the airway would be fully open once the swelling went down. That was not the case with me. I'm hoping that it will continue to expand to improve breathing. It appears slightly eschewed but being able to breathe was my first priority.
My breasts are not as high as I had expected, but I had excess skin and chose not to get a lift in addition to the implants. I did one size up and I'm very happy with the size I have now.
My biggest problem has been ongoing depression. There have been outside factors, as well as all that is involved with recovery from surgery and that has made me more critical of myself, emotional, and frustrated. My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer recently and is refusing Chemo as an optional treatment. I just discovered my partner of 5 yrs has cheated on my for the second time in 1 1/2 yrs. But what bothers me more than the betrayal is his lack of remorse, regret and commitment. Overwhelming. Lastly my youngest child is a Senior in school and will be soon leaving the nest. That seems to have me the most upset for some reason. It will be ok; I know this. And I do realize this is so trivial compared to what some people have to deal with in their lives. I am trying hard to keep a gratitude attitude. It's just not easy sometimes.
My Doctor: David V. Poole, MD
I did a great deal of research when choosing my doctor and Dr. David Poole came with very high recommendations.He did a breast augmentation on a friend of mine that was very natural looking. I don't think I could have found a better surgeon to perform my procedures. He gave me clear and concise expectations and answered all of my questions.
