Anxious, Nervous and Scared - Cleveland, OH

had my surgery on December 13 so I am 6 days PO and I am getting drainage removed tomorow. I had a full TT amd hernia repair without liposuction. The first few days of recovery was brutal. Not that much trouble standing up but I was in and out of it most of the first 4 days off the drugs. I have had 5 kids and developed a hernia and had so much extra skin on my stomach and it really didnt go with my small frame. When I first got pregnant I was only 110 bls and at the end was 160 lbs. After the pregnancies I was kind of left with this out of proportioned stomach on a frame of 130. It still looked as if I was pregnant most of the time. I am really happy I had this done!

Went to the doctor yesterday and all was well, he informed me that I did still have slight swelling at bottom of my stomach but other than that I was doing great! I asked him why did sometimes it felt like I was being ripped apart at mt incision though? He asked wut I would be doing before this happens since it only happens at night? My respone was working out so he told me to not go so hard on rhe abs. So ladies dont do to much. Somebody told me to ask a question I completely forgot what it was tried to find it too while I was there, so if you remeber tell me and I'll call and ask! Cause i dont go back for 6 months, Other than that happy healing

So far I am very satisfied with the experience I had with him. Any questions I had he answered them and made me feel very comfortable before and after surgery because I was very very nervous, terriffied really, but he was so attentive and comforting.

It didnt take me that long really. I was driving 10 days later. I still got tired quick and a little swollen but I'd say 3 weeks to a month. I still get a little tired and swollen sometimes but I basically do everything I wanna do. Oh I had sex 2 weeks later. My doc said if I felt I could handle it go ahead but no rough stuff.
