i was reading this article and find it very interesting,,,,,,I was wondering if this would help with the recovery

Medical
To ensure your body is properly prepared for the stress and trauma of an operation, your pre and post home-care planning can greatly reduce the impact of weakness and implications whilst increasing the strength of your immune system. By taking Vitargo before and after your operation, or giving birth, your body will be insured against loss of energy needed for the physical and mental stress. The sooner you can recover post operation also minimizes the negative effects associated with long term recovery. Vitargo is currently used by medical professionals because the easy-to-digest carbohydrate found in Vitargo is delicate on the digestion system. Vitargo requires less blood to digest, sparing blood and energy to where it’s needed most for repair and recovery.

Good Luck on your upcoming surgery! I think you will look great afterwards because it looks like you don't have much excess skin. As far as the simp reason garment I had it on when I woke up and it didn't bother me with the drains so much, only when I would move around sometime but my tummy was so numb I didn't feel it much.
  • Reply
I meant compression garment not simp reason but the auttocorrect changed it, sorry.
Island Girl: You have a very flat tummy after 2 kids! I think you look great! I wonder if you may not need a tummy tuck and maybe they'll just do a little lipo? That will totally minimize your scarring.

Your time will FLY by! It seems like I just "woke up" and my date was here. I understand not having the support you feel you need. My mom backed out on me at the last minute and would not come to help me after the surgery. I found out really fast what amazing friends I have. They stepped up to the plate and have helped me so much. I hope that you will find your experience is the same. You are going to be so happy with your results! You are beautiful already, and I hope this gives you the boost you need. Good luck! :-)

Island girl, my PS changed out my steri strips once a week for 6 weeks, meaning my scars never saw the light of day for 6 weeks, and I had to deal with having tape on for that long, but it was worth it!! Now I am using Dermatex on my scars twice a day!

today iam going out to get some simple shirts to wear under the garment, and some more stuff that i hope i can find.......iam gonna be 5 weeks away from work i hope thats enough time. i dont have an office job so its alot of walking and its hot so i hope thats enough time off. ive been on you tube and found a young lady who has a page with "getting ready for lipo in santo domngo" and she has drink appple beets and carrots juice and banana peer and spinach in a juicer, gonna try that, ive started my arinca and folic acid pills and iron pills, dont know what else to start..

iam so happy with this website because by reading all the updates makes you feel that youve been thru the surery alrady and what to expect.....i guess everyone is differnt and heal different with different results, but the more info you agther the better knowledge on what to expect....so iam leaving on the 17thsunday and the 18th will be my surgery......counting down the days,, happy healing everyone...

HI Island Girl, I have decided not to take the stool softeners until after the procedure is over. Things are traveling a little too smoothly through my intestinal tract right now, and I've had that same bad image of having a bowel movement while on the operating table, and I DON'T LIKE that image! I think it's the anxiety.

Hi there, do not get impatient to see scar. It's very good that scar is covered. In fact this is very very good!!! Presure on the scar is being proven to minimize scaring and make wound healing faster ;-) Mine was also covered bij PS in very tight tape.
Happy healing!

Today is my 3 week post, iam feeling better and better everytime, today ive visted the dr today , and he looked at my chin and he took out my sticht i had under my chin from my lipo. didnt hurt at all. ahahah feel back to normal, went out paying bills today doing laundry, house work sex hahahah, a couple of evenings ago went out with my boyfrfiend and we wacht the fight, didnt wear my cc garment, it felt great. sleeping also on my side, instead of my back with all those pillows . taking care of my daughter giving her bathes, the hardest part was to dry her off , hahhah i still havent been picking her up she 20 lbs and only 2 soon to be 3 on the 29th july....iam still wearing my compression garment 24/7 and sometimes my binder over it at night time. i think instead of buying an other compression garment iam just gonna go to the seamtress and leave her make it two or three sizes smaller because the one my dr in santo domingo gave me is very comfy has a jersey cloth on the inside. my boyfriend has been very supportive while i needed the help, exspecially ggetting off and on the bed, has he being a physcal therapist . iam not feeling any tightness , just some stiffness in my back from the lipo area, my dr today also gave me a go ahead and start with my massages exspecially on my back, where it would be more smoother.and he got the insurance to paid for it. Today my real vacation from work starts, the first 3 weeks was time off from work without pay, taught I would need that long to recover. So now Iam off untill 23rd July from work. My tape is still on my TT incision. I cant wait to start back the gym and go to the beach....have added a pic for my 3 week mark.. happy healing ladies...and god bless

4 weeks ops ladies time do run fast.... ive posted some pics from the dr in santo domingo, before my surgery, we didnt have any time to take after, but alteast we can see the difference in what 4 weeks looks like. iam trying to lose the last 25 lbs so i can go ahead and do my lift hahahah....

.Iam still walking the gocery store 3 times a day, its cold there and its nice to walk, hahahah soon the onwers gonna think iam stealing cause i ran out of buying stuff and i walk in empty handed and walk out empty handed hahahhha...iam starting back the gym in august, doesnt make any sence to pay for one week and then pay again lol, so frsh in august.

a couple of days ago i went with my daughter to the movies and guess what i ate??? popcorn lol i paid for it later that night, swell hell, no more popcorn for moi. iam making my compression garment two more sizes smaller, just isnt tught enough. by the tummy area, by my legs its fine , i wish the dr did more to my legs thou, maybe second time around ....

I got the ok to start swimming so maybe next weekend is my daughter and and son bday, what was funny before i went to surgery my weight was around 190ish after surgery i nearlly die, it was 298lbs lol, now i was swollen, and today i weight myself and iam 165lbs, the scale doesnt bother me , i really look at how my pants fit, cause i hated wearing my uniform or just reg jean and seeing a bulgde sticking out like a tire wrapped around your waist amd some more above your back, but now that all gone. i can feel the difference and see the difference when i wear my pants, my legs are still tight in the pants:( but i can work on that in the gym. so nothing much has change still doing the reg work at home, taking care of my princess, and now i can take reg showers hahahahah...since the tape is off my tummy tuck, iam trying to order some scar treatment sheets online but it will take forever to reach to st. maarten lol, i do hacve bio oil will try that once the scabs come off. dr told me to begin my lipo massages at 6 weeks so got a little more time waiting. once again ladies take care and happy healing. love ya

Nice hourglass shape, girl! So the scale said you gained 100 pounds of swelling??? Must have been a major glitch...did you glance at it wrong?

Enjoy the swimming. You incision must be completely closed now? No scabs?

Funny thing happend to me today, my house dr is off island so i went to his replacement for him to see my tummy tuck scar, first reach into his office and told him ive been to santo domingo to have a tummy tuck, and he was wachting his computer screen , i guess he was reading up on what my dr put into the computer about me going to santo,he after reading his computer he turned to me and said" hummmm can you please replain to me what is a tummy tuck"? i was in shock, I was ready to walk out of his office and go down the road to an other dr which i would have to pay for, because he knows more about these thing,.......but I sat down and explain him the whole procedure and he was so excited , and i basically forgot what i really came in for, and left lol,,,,LMAO...

thats the negative part of having any surgery out of the country, or for me offf ilsand. I have to read up and look at pics from you ladies to compare and see how iam healing, thank god for this website and all your updates, I thank you, and happy healing ladies

Hi ja1975 ive been using bio oil on stretch marks for a long time i think it tends to give the skin more elasticity so the strecht marks doesnt look as much, i think it tends to give an even tone also to the skin, but dont thik it takes it away, i dont think anything takes it away premantly if i may say. its good to use to prevent your skin from stretching to get the marks, by your skin not being so dry, so its good to use.

Iam having .my breast lift done on the 3rd of June. Dr only charging me for the lift. I did a tattoo on my scar about six months after the surgery. Tummy was still numb n it covered the scar. I will post a picture of myself now.

Hi island girlsxm! U look amazing! I see u said ur RH has a website or something online? Can u tell me where to look? u went to her right after ur 24 hr stay in hospital? Does she have a nurse on site? Thx

The house is great. No nurse she's a nurse. And she take care of You with hands and feet. You can't ask for more. She brought me to the hospital and she was the first I saw when I woke up
I didn't go to the website my dr gave me her number. 120 dollars a day. And she picked you up st the airport n all the appointments to the dr. And she cooks for you n take care of You 24/7 . From what I see on other websites she s pretty expensive comparing to the rest. But it's worth it. Iam going back to her on Sunday coming for surgery on Monday. Remember the after care is most important.

Hi everyone. Iam back in Santo domingo.

Reached the recovery house and Arelis was at the airport waiting for me. it feels so good to be welcomed. Shes taking me out for dinner And getting me prepare for surgery tomorrow morning at 7am. Iam having a breast lift gonna try and post some pictures later.

What about the cooking, cleaning of your faja, bathing etc?? I am getting quite a bit done. BBL, TT, BA w/ BL, extensive lipo! Thanks again. I should only need to stay with her for about a week I am thinking? I am staying 10 days and $120 a day is a lot for me by myself

Don't know About that one. Lots of these places are working like robots and treat everyone the same. But with her is more personal and it comes from her heart and can feel the way you get treated it comes from her heart and treats Every one different because we are not the same even though we all come for the same procedure.
hi am going to dr july 7 to the 17 i would like to know if u can give the information on the recovery house you stayed at..
