Your welcome! I know how frustrating it can seem. But when I think back, I can't believe how fast the time went by and those rough days will clear from your memory. I am very happy I did this and now just hope that through menopause I can hold on to what I worked so hard for. Each day...look at yourself even take a selfie and you will see how much better you are doing. Don't lift though because you certainly don't want to undo that work by causing complications.

Hi... Congratulations... you are looking "normal" to me. I had TT 8 years ago. Even though we are all different in our healing process, I don't see anything that's would make me think that you are not healing properly. I would contact my doctor regarding swollen feet. My belly button looked different but it healed well and I got used to the new look. The time for being scared is over and now you are on your way to a new fabulous look! Get plenty of rest, wear the compression garment religiously, and don't worry the swelling will go away in a few weeks. Best wishes....

Hi! You are only about 2 WKS post-op. I think you look fine. It takes a while for your swelling to go down. I was 49 when I got my TT. I did not have lipo but am guessing from your pics that you did. It is normal for you to be "down" after surgery but just try to rest and not worry for 6 weeks. You are bruised, swollen, and have to go patiently wait for healing. I had to have me bb redone as it was just a slit my the time I healed. I still keep a bead in there to keep the shape. In fact, have found a way to make it look like a piercing so it is functional yet doesn't look like a marble. Hope this helps put your mind at ease. Rest :)

Im so overwhelmed

Hey wishing.... don't be too hard on your self. You had major surgery (I know that we don't think of TT as major but it is.. we undergo a major cut! and part of the body is removed!) so you must give yourself time to heal. Like Lana said, give yourself at least 6 weeks of healing, longer if you can. As far as house work... don't do it! do nothing except the minor things, otherwise you are using your strength, energy and healing resources to do house work rather than devoting it to the healing process.... I hope that I have encouraged you to kick back and let your body take care of itself. Best wishes....

Hi there! You will not want to do anything in housework until about the 6 weeks. You should not do anything until you discuss it with your surgeon. Glad to hear that your swelling is gone. Constipation is very common and I used a product recommended by the surgeon called Senekot. Walking and keeping your legs moving is good - like pointing your toes/flexing your heels. This is a time for you to rest and recover not push yourself. Everyone has different pain thresholds and you just need to not rush. For you it may be longer than others. I trust you have scheduled visits to your surgeon and that you can address your issues with them. You should still walk a bit stooped over which I found in the end bothered my lower back. All will be okay though...it just takes time. All the best for a recovery that moving forward becomes easier each day!
