Hi I'm 10 days po.First few days I was feeling ok.Now at day 10 not much pain .Just gets frustrating. Need lots patience.I get up walk around get tired really fast.I live 2 story home so I'm in my room all the time, gets depressing. Once I go downstairs that means I get stuck on couch for hrs. Not very comfy. I will upload after pic later.

I guess part of recovery

Feeling very bloated. Swollen. Left side where drain was constantly burn . Uggghh

feeling good today

Had some stitches removed yesterday. Except for two long ones that run from middle of incision all way to d side . anybody know what's up with that? Do does fall off on there own? Remember I had tt mx so went to a dr here tx she spoke to ps she said that what he said to leave those alone
Omg im worried gonna call my ps today.
dr francisco avila

Very confident in what he does.Was always available to answer all my questions.

Glad to hear that you're doing better. It's been five days and I'm still sore and it's really sore where my drain is at. That thing gets on my nerve I didn't go out today it's suppose to rain here in Ga. So it's all gloomy here managed to bathe and that helps out a lot. I'm gonna take it easy and rest. You get some too and don't over do it.

I'm one week post op. I made a trip to the grocery store bc I just wanted to get out. I was miserable afterward. Unbelievably swollen. I swear it has taken 2 days for the swelling to return to normal, well the new normal. I look forward to following your recovery

I know the feeling I was up and walking around after third day. Keep a straight posture it will feel real tight but it will help with skin recovery an pain in back

It gets better quickly! Hop on here and chat with others who are in the same stage of recovery. It will keep your mind busy and you'll know your not alone. You can find others that have had the same procedure about the same date by looking at the surgery calendar. Happy healing!

Its an emotional journey. You have to submit to not being able to do anything and your not productive. And I think some of the meds can make a person emotional. In one more short week you'll be doing much better! I bet you have lovely results!
