After birthing 5 kids (last two were 9 pounds) my stomach is in need of repair! I'm 5'6 and 145 pounds, so not terribly overweight, but my stomach sticks out like I'm 3 months pregnant and I hate it! It's so hard to find cloths that fit my skinny legs and my waist, and I usually wear my shirts too big to try and hide the gut.. So finally I have saved enough to get my tummy tuck!! Yayyy! When I went for my consult the PT said that I only needed a mini because I didn't have enough lose skin for a full, so I'm hoping to get the results I want. It's now 2 weeks til surgery and I'm starting to get nervous about recovery, I have 10 days off after, but I am a server and work on my feet, so hoping that it will be enough time. I absolutely can't wait to look normal again!!
One more week!!
Can't believe I only have a week to go! I'm so excited!! I'm going to start preparing by getting my house in tip top condition and shopping done along with everything I will need for recovery...hope this week goes fast!!!
Night before surgery!!!
It's finally here! Night before surgery and I'm feeling excited and nervous at the same time. I just got off the phone with the nurse at the clinic going over last Minuit instructions, I can't believe after all the saving, planning and talking that it is finally going to happen.. Cute new summer cloths here I come!! Lol I will post pics as soon as possible:-) wish me luck!
I felt surprisingly good when I got home, but I now realize I was completely numb! Now I am not and can feel everything :-( I'm in my recliner and can't seem to get comfortable, wish I could just fall asleep!! Hoping tomorrow is better
Not sure if it's the lipo, muscle repair or the incision or probably all three!! But I am hurting:-( I'm very bruised from the lipo and every time I get up or sit down it hurts pretty bad. The nurse said the first three days would be the worst. I'm very swollen too!
Seen my PS on Monday and he said I was healing nicely. He took stitches out and said still swollen and it will go down over time .... Pretty happy with the results so far. Can't wait for all the swelling to be gone!!
Just over 3 weeks and feeling great!!
Just started wearing a lighter more comfortable under garment instead of the dr. Issued compression garment and it's much better, still wear the other one at night though. Loving my new look in cloths!!! Let me tell you it was worth every penny! I still swell by the end of day, but not too bad. Over all I'm very happy:-)
