He gave me Vicodin.. The hardest part for me wasthe shaking when I came out of anesthesia which freaked me out but they give u something and it immediately stops the shaking.. I've gotten up3 times no problem to pee. It really is so much easier than I thought it would be!

Well today is day 5 and I'm exhausted! Pain is getting better and I can finally get up on my own without help but it's sore:/ thank God for my parents who have watched my babies everyday! I'm so lucky.. I've been feeling kind of diZzy, I wonder if that's normal or if its the pain meds making me feel this way! I can't wait to be healed! Monday I have an appointment to have my drain removed :)

Kimberlee, I too just had my TT & BA revision on 25June and I just can't wait to be healed already. My surgery was here in Germany and my doc was absolutely awesome. Haven't really seen my scar or bb but, I have another appt on Monday. Wishing/praying for you a happy healing. Smooches and take care.

Thank u:)))

I'm PO day 5.... Trying to be patient. I'm 5'5 and usually about 140 but on surgery day I was 135. I feel like 170 with all this swelling. Flanks hurt and everything is itchy. So constipated!
Reply

Drains removed!

So that was a weird feeling but it didn't hurt.. I absolutely love everyone at my surgery center! My doctor is seriously the sweetest guy, I owe him my life. He's changed the way I look at myself!!!! I've been sooo itchy lately :( and the bruising HURTS but slowly but surely is going down! Yay :) I can't wait to see the final result! OMG also he showed me pics of how much skin was removed that was nuts:)))
I Am wandering about my bb too. Mine is really high up. So excited to look at my new tummy! I am not gonna miss those huge stretch marks I've had for 22 years! I thought I would need a Xanax too but I think my husband was ready to call it off if I lost it. I had to fake it. Lol act like its no big deal. I would have had a freakfest if he did. It's my surgery!
Reply
I've heard they call it a "floating belly button" they say its normal to be out of place for awhile, I actually just checked mine and it looks ALOT better! And my love handles are almost gone!!! YAYYYYY :)

Happy healing!! You look great!!

Shrinking slowly but surely!!

Yay woke up to take a Vicodin (still in so much pain) :( I wish it would stop! I was in less pain the first few days.. I think I've just built a tolerance to these pain pills :( sooo ready to be in a bikini, but I'm being patient! Anything is better than before
Judging by where your panties are in the last pics you posted does the incision go above them a little bit ?
Reply
It looks like it maybe a little but my stomach is sooo tight sill, it's going to drop a little bit once it stretches (so they tell me)
Reply
It's also hard to tell in that pic but they aren't pulled up all the way, I just looked at my scar in the mirror in person and it's low it's right above my pubic bone
Reply

Sleeping

Having some issues sleeping because I'm so uncomfortable and my stomach is soo tight.. I wake up kinda panicked feeling :/ hope this goes away soon

When I went in and met with Dr.Salzhauer and he immediately makes you feel so comfortable! I had been to numerous consultations in my area and I wasn't comfortable. A friend of mine has had work done at Bal Harbour and he came highly recommended to me.
