I had a tt yesterday. I know that I am supposed to walk around but the most I can do is walk back and forth from the bathroom. I cannot stand up straight at all, which I expected. My back kills me if I stand too long hunched over. I am just wondering if this is how most everyone else felt, and what to expect next.
This is an experience I will never forget for sure...

Looking back on the first week, my worst memories are the headaches from sleeping in the recliner and the day I thought I was going to die thanks to a backup. After that prunes, fiber one, and water became by two bff's. I haven't had any complications at all. I stopped the Vicodin on day 3. I occasionally took one to sleep at night. I haven't taken anything else for pain at all. I think the worst things are that when I get up from sitting I get the worst stinging, pinching feeling on my whole left side, and my right hip. It stops me from moving for a minute, then it goes away. The tightness in the muscles is the other thing. By the end of the day I'm pretty hunched over. Twice a day I try to lay flat in bed for a while to stretch out. It feels wonderful.
I finally posted some before and after pics. I didn't want to put the before pics up, but then the after pics wouldn't be so amazing :)
This forum has been a life saver. Everyone is so helpful and thoughtful.

I really, really want to exercise, but I don't know what to do. Can I do slow aerobics, or just walk? The thing that sucks more than anything is that I used to lift heavy weights, and I really miss it. I don't really know what 5 pounds is going to do, if that's all I can lift.
Clothes still fit weird, but the fact that pants lay flat on my stomach makes this all worth it. I love that my pants are loose and that I don't have a pouch anymore. My husband always said it never bothered him, but now that it's done, he says he's glad I did it. I am too!

Definitely worth it!! The question of the scar is not even a second thought to me. I would rather have the scar then what I had before. I have never had a flat stomach. I can't believe it! Even with swelling it still looks better than it did before surgery. LOVE IT!!!
