I am hesitant of the recovery but I excited about the final results. I look forward to update on the flat side.

I am sore over my chest and back but the tummy is not so bad. So far we are about we're we were After the c-sections..... So as long as I stay on top of the pain meds I'm ok!

PO3 -----Taken off the binder and the first shower. As much as I felt ABSOLUTELY nasty.....the shower was less than fun. I took off the binder, removed the bandages and rezipped the CG and took a Quick shower. My blood pressure got sort of low and I was shivering but after drying off and smelling a Little yummier I feel better. I had hubby take some pics of me with my garmet off....Im swollen....dont neccessarily love the bloody mess of a belly button but the incision looks fine.

Well....it is PO5 and I am pretty much off the pain meds except at night. I still have not Went to the bathroom....but it actually is not bothering me yet. Took a shower again today......heavenly!!!! I switched to my other garment and that made me feel so much better. I am bruised.....A LOT.....well you can see on the Pictures for yourself. It actually doesnt hurt as much as you would think it just looks really scary. He must have used permanent marker because that IS NOT coming off and I am not about to scrub it LOL. I have some serious swelling on my left side.....on my hip but I will ask him about that tomorrow. So far Im excited and I am soooooo happy I did this.

I interviewed five plastic surgeons in my metro area and Dr. Bednar was the clear first choice. I based my decision on several friends whom are his patients and did extensive online research. Dr Bednar has the eye of an artist and I am thrilled with my results.
