5/14/12 went in for surgery I was really anxious and worried about what I was going to feel like after I woke up from my surgery.i had a full tummy tuck. I am now on day 7 I can bath myself and get out of bed, I have been walking around hunched over its so painfull from the bruises on my sides. I am not sleeping well at all. This whole thing is driving me nuts. I can't do anything and I have two kids and I feel sad and horrible that I can't do anything for them. I have been feeling nauseated and feverish and lightheaded so my nurse wants me to do another round of antibiotics. I'm going to Er and getting a shot I can't take seven days of antibiotics I'll be sick everyday. I am going to seem doctor tomorrow to haves drains removed yay!!! Can't wait for that. This morning I woke up and felt like why did I do this ? I hope I will heal soon. Does anyone have any advice about the numbness I can't stand it. Overall I saw my stomached and I'm pleased w it and the scars are very low and that's one good thing. And omg I have to sneeze and cough it's the most horrible pain ever. When will that go away? Sorry girls just tired of my room and not sleeping well. Hopefully you all are feeling a lot better:)

Ooh I feel your pain! I too woke up this morning thinking.... Was it really worth it? I'm sure it will be but it is no picnic heh! I too have three small kids and feel your pain in not bein able to do anything for them, it's horrid. I'm really missing the cuddles too. I haven't even looked at my tummy yet as I am too scared but am seeing the nurse today who will do the grand unveil! I hope I don't look like frankenstein! I feel just as you describe I must say, which is quite comforting, I feel sick, dizzy and green, and although I can get around ok on my own in the house, I find everything exhausting! I thought I was a tough cookie but this is a lot harder than I anticipated, and that's bearing in mind I delivered twins naturally which didn get the better of me! Lets hope day seven is the turning point and tomorrow we will feel like spring chickens! Do you have a super swollen tum? I can stand straight most the time but the swelling causes me to crouch like a granny? X
