Good Morning I'm sitting here at work and can't think straight... I can't wiat till it's my turn to reach the flat lands. I spoke to my boss about my leave of time and she is very supportive.

I was talking to my husband last night and he said "Babe you know once you have that surgery you are going to be in a lot of pain". Ok whatever lol. I am ready......................

Hi Real Self,

Just made my final payment in full. I'm schedule for February 27,2013 at 9:00AM. It's finally here and old boy am I nervous. I did my blood work today and got measured for my garment. I'm having a tummy tuck with muscle repair and lipo to the flanks, also I'm having my underarms done because I have hanging breast tissue that looks disgusting. The time has come so this weekend I will prepare myself for what is next. My doc said I don't need anything extra, but after reading post on here I will grab a few things. OMG it's time Wensday will be here in no time.

Hi to everyone that is reading this. I finally had surgery in yesterday 2-27-2013 I was schedule to have surgery at 10:00am but that started late I didn't leave the hospital until 11:00pm that night. I was in so much pain and was vomiting everywhere, I had a tummy tuck, lipo, muscle repair, and I had breast tissue removed from under both arm puts and boy did the S/"- hurt. I had two c-sections n the first few hours I would say nothing compared to that maybe because of the armpit surgery. Well it's 4:00 and I'm awake full of energy I just wanted to say good morning and hello. I made it to the flat lands. O yea my drains are not draining as much has anyone experienced that if so is that normal should I be worried?

Good Morning in a few I will be leaving out for my follow-up appointment I'm not sure what to aspect hopefully I get to see my stomach. I wouldn't say I'm in a lot of pain but I'm in pain. My underarms are still a bit numb but I can feel the sensation of touch. My arm pits hurt the most. I been drinking so much water and lemon it's crazy. Well I hope you all enjoy your day happy Friday.....

Hey ladies take a look and let me no what you think. I no it's way to early but my PS said once the swelling goes down everything will even out.

Good Morning I had surgery wensday today is Sunday I'm not sure what post op day this would be, maybe 4. I'm really swollen I have been moving around and drinking lots of water, cranberry juice and lemon water and also eating pineapples. The drains tend to drain more when I eat the pineapples not sure why. The drains come out Thursday I can't wait. I'm so swollen but I can tell the difference already I can't wait three or four months from now when I can really see a difference. Well that's enough for now I'm going back to sleep....

I just went to the bathroom and wow this was not what I was expecting. I read post where people stated that it didn't hurt and some said it was smooth sailing. Well for me it was awful I used my stomach muscle and boy did it hurt. I drunk two cups of prune juice so I guess it's finally kicking in. Now my butt hurts I hope this passes.... Have a great day

I would say listen to your Dr and if he isn't worried you shouldn't be. I had oozing which got infected but that was because i had a seroma which was using my bb as an outlet. Keep an eye on yours, listen to your Dr and you will be fine...

Yes....I went through same thing up to week 4.

Hi! I guess I would listen to your Dr! That is why we pay them big bucks, right? :) I would be worried too though if I had oozing, glad you called your Dr. to find out what was going on! I hope it gets better, and soon! Your after pics look awesome!

I'm glad you're doing well. Have you "milked" your drains? That may help get them going. Happy Healing!

Thanks I have been milking them I feel better hopefully I didn't drink to much prune juice lol.

Never heard of milking the drain before, what is that? How do you do that? I experienced my first BM myself this morning!
