Yuppie had 1 week post PS Appt. He said everything is looking good. So now no more drains, thank god. I really couldn't sleep cause they started burning sensation whenever touch . Will post pics tomorrow.

still swollen but its okay

I'm posting some updated pics. I'm still swollen but it okay I know it won't last forever & I'm patient. scar doesn't look bad, I'll be using scar cream soon. My PS say to use merderma. Do after this Friday when I see him for my two week checkup I
will be picking some up. Is this the pint when you start massaging the scar? Has merderma been good for anyone...if do can I see the result if you don't mind.

still a lil swollen but no regrets at all

i wake up in morning not that swollen but during the day i do swell up not huge but i can feel how tight my tummy gets. I have notice if i sit at my desk for a period of time i will get very tight, so i will have to get up a walk a lil to make it my comfortable to deal with. I can still see some stretch marks, but compare to what i had i can deal with it, also my PS said once the swelling is all done they will go away. Love my belly and BB and love this site. Alot of women on here help me make this decision and get through recovery. Love you guys. Posting some updated pics. I know its been awhile so i posted pic i have been taking. Sorry no caption.

Im also addicted to working out

im so addicted to working out i cant stay out of the gym, ive even gone as far as working on my abs, and there is no pain( thats bad cause i will continue) but i havent gone as far as to go to an intense ab class. Sorry to say PS has not okayed that yet. But almost 2 months po, not overdoing it either but need to get it in. The only thing i havent gotten back into is boxing or playing basketball again but im really itching to get back to it. I see my pS on oct 4 hopefully positive results, but i really feel awesome. I use Mederma for scar but i think i need something else been using it for bout 3 weeks. Would like to see a lighter scar,lil to dark for me . Anyone have any suggestions?

Be careful with your workouts. it's great to get back into it!!! I was cleared for light exercise week 3 but didn't really have much energy to give to anything until almost week 6 .. I went back to work after 2 weeks and the long days took it all out of me. Just past 8 weeks now, feeling great, all my energy is back and I'm working out almost as I was before surgery. SLOW to work the abs! Still feeling that out lol Did a small set of crunches and felt no pain at all, just huge swelling that night which was back down overnight.

Yes! I have pics of the garmets I bought... on my profile. As well as links to the websites! The stage 2 is just awesome! I was going to get the above the knee but I was afraid of a big mid thigh bulge so I got the below the knee! It's just awesome and I feel very secure wearing it! Couldn't ask for anything more comfy!
