I had surgery on 2/28/2011. I don't have any regrets about having the surgery. I haven't experienced a whole lot of pain, lots of swelling though. My stomach had a lot of loose skin and the muscle was very laxed. It has only been 2 weeks, I still have swelling mainly in the evening and at night. But I am pleased with the results so far. I can't wait until I see the final results.

I am feeling a lot better. This is week#3 for me I have said good bye to the pain meds. I'm using motrin as needed. Still can't fit fully into my pants yet almost there though. My swelling is still occuring in the late evening and the night. I must say this whole process was not as bad as I thought. I am almost standing up all the way just a little more and i will be standing tall. My incission did break down just a little bit, currently applying bacitratian ointment.

Well this is week#4 and so far the healing process seemed to be going well. I have had some break down of my incission, and it has been bleeding and oozing. I have been using ointment on it and dressing it with gauze. I have also developed an abcess on my right side I am so ready for this to be over. Still a little bent over almost standing 100%. Any tips on helping my wound to heal a little faster?

I have a question have any of you ladies used fluid pills to help release some of the fluid from the swelling,to make this process go a little faster? Please let me know Thanks.

I just added my four and five week pictures. The swelling comes and goes:)

Yesterday was my first day back to work. I thought I was going to be tired, sore, and swollen to my surprise, I felt just fine. I am 8wks post-op and I'm still really puffy (swollen) in the the middle of my stomach. I have been wearing my garmet like clock work i really don't know what to do to make this swelling MOVE! My doctor said that he expects me to have swelling for about 3 months. However since I had a wound infection the swelling could last a bit longer. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know... But overall I feel wonderful and I'm very pleased with my resuts.
