21 Mar 2014
Day of treatment
I am okay! ! On the flat side!
Good morning , yesterday I was sleepy all day, and with Nauseas .... I was starving yesterday, but the food seemed not good.
The catheter was disconnect at 12:00 am today and at 4:30 am I tried to urinate and could not... Very frustrated... Can't write more, my eyes are closing ... Tired
What a day yesterday!!!first my catheter was disconnected at midnight and I was all panic, because I could not urinate for hours , one of the nurses was great the other one just so apatict , that does not help when somebody does not have sympathy for the pain... I was start feeling lot of pain, but I could not take anything without food...so at 8:00 am I got my breakfast!!!, EGGS, and I don't eat eggs ! Plus many food now just made feel Nauseas, it was good that my husband arrived with an apple and Greek yoghurt ... After that getting out of bed was hard, I took a shower in the hospital ... I could urinate that was a huge releife ! Came home and it was better than the hospital, still I could not find a place that made me feel comfortable, I did not want to watch tv, check Internet ,... I felt lots of Nauseas ... I have the feeling that I am more like my self now, I even writing here, the recliner seems good. At 4:00 am needed to take Norco,but the idea of take a pill gave me Nauseas ! So to go the Fridge to see if I could find something for my empty stomach and melon seemed good! Okay, I feel optimistic that today will be a better day , because I even feel like I want to talk! Yesterday talking was difficult ...
By the way...
My tummy tuck was drainless... I can't imagine to be dealing with the drains at this moment...
I am surprise that my tummy is not hurting me a lot, it's my back when I try to walk, get drees and take a shower ..... How long did you girls said that is going to be like this ?
Walking straight again after a TT
Girls , please remind me what is the average time to walk straight again after tummy tuck ?
3 months after I had my twins
photo before my tummy tuck!
4 days after ...
4 days after tummy tuck, I am feeling much better, I did my hair, make up, I am not sure if I am ready to show all my tummy , but here is a partial photo... I am going to see my doctor on Thursday and I will take photos then... It is so nice to have help, my mum and my friend have been a bless! I don't remember when was the last time that I rest so much! When I had my twins I could, because one if them was in NICU so I was up and down after the c-section... Today I feel like my forth or fifth day after the section ... Not bad... Still I need to sleep on the recliner , and I walk not streight at all.
What a painful !
My 3 yo daughter by accident stood on the recliner control and I was sleeping on there ... So I went all back down in such a short time ! Could not do anything ! I am worried... Also yesterday i return the recliner , because it jumped twice while I as trying to change positions ... So painful .... I am worried abut the way that I am going to be healing ...
5 days after ...
Today, I could do some work, I wrote quotations and give information to my clients... I use my laptop while seating on my recliner.
I also could feed my babies, and dress my oldest daughter as a princess, everything being very careful, slow, and I listen to my body when I get tired...
I love that I rent a chair to take a shower, that is huge help for me, since I get tired when I am standing for more than 3 minutes I guess...
Buenas noches chicas!
What pain medicine are girls taking? For how long ?
I am taking NORCO, tomorrow is going to be a week since my TT And Saturday since taking NORCO.
I can now wear this top!
Wow! I am so excited that now I can wear this top!! It was on the closet for some years always expecting to wear it again!
What is new?
Well, I wish I could walk straight , but not yet, I wonder if I can push myself more ? My tummy is still very swollen... I am starting feeling sad and afraid ... I have been thinking what about if I don't get the results that I wished ?
I am still taking NORCO, but lowes dosis ... I sleep for the first time in my bed last night ... I love the recliner during the day, but at night I want to be in my bed!!!!
Photo after 12 days
Here if a photo of me after 12 days, still sollowen ...how am I feeling?
A little bit sad, maybe is hormonal , just had my period , probably is because I am ready to feel normal ? Maybe , because is hard not walk straight ? Pain, is not a lot, I still have pain, I am still taking NORCO each 6 hours one pill. I hope I have a better day tomorrow ... Today I feel sad...
feeling sad today
feeling sad, maybe is because I have been without too much activity, maybe because I wish I could feel 100% like me, maybe, because I still can see what I would like to see in the mirror? I am still swollen...
I am ready to see the results of my tummy tuck!
Last night while I was sleeping I felt weat and then I went to the bathroom and I saw that I was bleeding from my incision ... Is that normal ?
I think I am starting feeling better, during the weekend I was feeling sad... Today I went to work, I teach Spanish so I am out of the house from 7:20 am - 9:00 am, just a little bit of time... My tummy does not hurt now is only I can't walk streight yet... I stop taking NORCO...
I think things are getting better, still swollen ... But each day feeling better... Right now the worst is to sleep, I still can't lay completely flat and neither can't walk straight ...
I guess that there are good and bad days
Yesterday I was brave enough to take my mum and the lady that have been looking after me and my family for dinner ! Mmm but I was in pain, maybe the chair? Position ? I did not enjoy the dinner and I was ready to get back home ASAP... Then I was in pain during the night , it's like a sharp pain... When am I going to feel okay again ? Tomorrow I have an appointment with my doctor, that makes me feel excited I hope everything goes well....
2nd appointment with my Doctor...
Today I have had a better day! I saw my doctor and everything looks great he said, I also feel less tired today, less pain today, the weather was gorgeous today so I went for a walk with my twins and my 3 yo daughter ...
I am happy today!!!!
3 weeks after!
Today marks 3 weeks after the surgery, what is new? I am not feeling that sharp pain that I was feeling sometimes, I can do more things at home, I still can not see the results that I want since I am still swollen...
I miss to hold my twins:-( they will be 1 year old in a couple of weeks...
I am feeling stronger, better each day, I am walking much better, ...
4 weeks after
4 weeks after I feel much better, but still with some pain, nothing that I can't tolerate, but the pain is there, now I can sleep on my side, which I was missing so much!
Still can not see the final results that I am expecting, but I think is normal to be swelling and bruising...
I will start working out tomorrow, I will start slow, just cardio...
