Ahh!! I can't believe my Mommy Makeover surgery is...
I have to share this...
Ready for my NewMe Day!
I've been taking Arnica Montana pills for the past 3 days since my doctor told me it will help with the swelling and bruising. I sure hope they help because I'm having so much work done :/ (breast lift with augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction of the flanks and upper back).
I'm super excited but also very nervous. I trust my doctor 100% but it scares me that my surgery could take up to 6 hours - yikes!! I'm also nervous because I don't know what type of pain to expect - I don't like taking pain meds because they make me nauseous and constipated. // I can't believe I'm going to be on the "flat side" in 1 day!
Please keep me in your prayers friends. Love you all very much. Talk to you soon :)
Made it to the flat side/perky boobies side ladies!!
Day 1 and Day 2 post op updates
Day 1 was a great day because I woke up feeling my belly to check if my kangaroo pouchy was still there but quickly found out my belly was flat! I suddenly became filled with joy to know it was gone! Then I proceeded to try to catch a glimpse of my new boobies but they were wrapped in a bandage. I wanted to unwrap my belly and boobies quickly to see my results; like a girl unwrapping a Birthday present!! I was so happy that I totally set aside all the nausea and discomfort I felt. Oh, forgot to mention my surgery was 5 1/2 hours long; came out of surgery at 3:00pm.
Day 2 was a little tougher. I felt more muscle tightness and nausea than day 1. The pain surprisingly was not as bad as I imagined it. The nausea was a far worse experience. I even told my husband that I wanted to discontinue the Vicodin and take Tylenol instead. He quickly asked me if I was crazy and told me to get that bad idea out of my head. Lol! But anyway on day 2,... I had a follow up visit with my doctor and he unwrapped my new babies! I mean boobies! :) I wanted to immediately photograph them but my husband told me to wait until the incision tape comes off. So I'm patiently waiting to show all of you my amazing results. (At this point I hadn't seen my new belly yet since my follow up appointment was 4 days later.)
Day 3 and Day 4 post update
Day 4- Started taking extra strength Tylenol instead of the Vicodin and I started feeling better because my constipation and nausea went away. On this day I was also walking straighter, had a little more energy and my itchiness went away. I took a glimpse of my new belly and almost cried with joy. I can't wait to see the NewMe at my follow up appointment tomorrow. I've been thanking God every step of the way on this incredible journey. The other person I can't thank enough is my wonderful husband who has taken such great care of me. I love him!! // I'm so excited to show you all my results on future reviews.Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes :)
