Got the drain out today. Still a lot of swollen going on, they say it might be 6-8 weeks before the swollen go away. I pray that it don't take that long. I can't wear panties yet, because if I wear them, it will make a permanent line on my stomach, because I am so swollen. I did get some good news today that I can start taking showers now. Well I pray that all is going good for all the ladies that has had the tummy tuck surgery & for those who are plan on getting a tummy tuck. I guess when this swollen get under control, that's when I can see my result. Have a bless day ladies...

My doctor had me wear mine for whole month after surgery... but after wants compression tanks or spanks for a while but I am still swollen.. I get ultra sound therapy twice a week. Which is helping break up the hard tissues in my abdomen. so far I have had 3 treatments and my stomach is still swollen but less hard. Hope that helps you look great though just be patient and time and healing will pay off!!!
