I had my TT one week ago and I must say it gets better everyday! I was so anxious before surgery that I hadn't slept for days and I was a delirious wreck on the day of surgery:)
The first couple days were really bad but now I'm feeling back to myself and ready to get out of the house, I think I'll go grocery shopping tomorrow. Im going to try to post some pix but I took them on my phone so not sure how it will work.
I geuss I could give better background info on...

I had TT surgery on my 36 bday, happy birthday to me!
I have 2 kids 7 1/2 and 9 and I never really got my stomach back after having them. I have tried all the usual things like gym, trainer, diet but nothing was working.
Actually in November I did the Zerona laser lipo thinking it would be a better alternative to surgery. I lost about 6lbs and 2 inches all over but then it made my already flabby tummy even flabbier so I was incredibly dissapointed. So I would tell anyone looking into the Zerona to just put that money to actual surgery, it will be worth it in the end!
I am a week and a day out and Im feeling petty well! I get tired easily still even grocery shopping:) I am standing up much straighter (thanks Bella83!).
I am very happy that it is all over now! The anticipation if getting there is awful.
I wish I could sleep on my side but the binder kind of pinches along my incision and its very uncomfortable. I needed to have a BB hernia repaired too so my BB is kind of icky. I really hope it doesn't get infected!
I think one of my biggest fears was having a crazy belly button. Ive seen some pix of ones that remind me of coin slots and I didnt want that for sure. I think my new BB will be ok, it looks a little small to me but I had a fat frowny face BB for so long that anything is better:)
I go back into PS in 2 weeks so I will check back in then and try to keep up on the pictures.
So ive read alot of posts of depression being part...

I was wondering if any of you post opers have had a problem with your sides being uneven? I can tell my left side is rounder and its driving me nuts! Not sure if the Dr should have taken out more with the lipo or if its just more swollen on that side?
My friend thinks it is just fluid bc its squishy...I dont know but I hope it goes way!
I will update a pic on Thursday when I am at the 2 week mark:)
Oh yeah, does anyone know when its ok to start...

I am happy with the results so far but I still feel a little lopsided, like the right side is fuller. Maybe its still swollen tho I dont feel swollen...
Im ready to ditch the support garment, it really itches but I find my BB hurts when I dont wear it, not sure what thats about?
I posted new pix and can really see a difference from week to week so thats exciting!
I decided to try running today instead of walking,...

I dont think im having swelling as much as bloating after I eat so Im trying to drink lots of water, not sure if that helps or not...
I go to PS next wednesday and I have a million questions for him. Will they tell you how much the skin weighed and how much fat they sucked out during lipo? Im so curious! I also wonder why he deosnt use drains and about all of the blogs ive come across everyone has drains...
Today I saw a light hair in my BB so I pulled at it. Turns out it was a stitch and it started bleeding! Then it hurt from the inside a few minutes later. ouch
I am officially 3 weeks post op today! Went to PS...

Also, I asked him if there was anything I could put on the scar and he said nothing will work because the scar is so deep and healing from the inside out. I am wodering if anyone has tried any scar cream any way and had any luck?
Dr. Wolfe is very professional and made me feel good during the consult. I had been to other consults and got bad vibes from the Drs. So I am very happy with my choice:)
