its my 5th day post op now ladies, im feeling really tight and numb in my belly. i am able to walkaround with no pain ffom my incision but only from my back which is annoying and painful. been applying warm pads on it. i can roll off my bed easily now since we decided to place the mattress on the floor. i had been rather sleepy and dozing off while typing here, and dreaming despite it just being a 10-15 seconds snooze. My problem at this point s that i dont have the urge to pee even if i had gone drinking 3 big bottled water. i have to force it out . i will call my Md tomorrrow, i dont wanna have kidney issues.. kinda scared! ianyone with same experience? pls help

11 days post op, looking in the mirror right now...

11 days post op, looking in the mirror right now makes me wanna put on aswimsuit! Dr.Younai does an excellent job. His very skillful and knows what you want and more! he gave me a figure to die for (despite me still being swollen.) i have curves that was not even there pre pregnancy. my waist line is getting smaller everyday and my hips are still niceand curvy. He lipo my my stubborn fanks wich i had even in college. im very pleased. he is very nice and accomodating. staff are great as well! i will definitely refer family/ friends to him. Honestly, i thought his pictures of pre and post procedures on his web site was edited bec they were TOO SEXY. Im happy I took the chance. Believe me, those pictures are for real! I am still restless at night bec of some pain here and there, easily resolvedw tylenol pm or melatonin. Ofcourse everyone has to have alil complaint right so mine will be : my parking cant be validated per AA for my ff ups. Only on day of procedure. :( oh well, to see Dr. Younai is worth my 2 dollars anyway.

im not active on this but this is like a diary for me. i checked on it to see my progress and i see other womens post and relate to all their experiences. I had been building up seroma this past 4 days. I noficed wavelike motion in my tummy and called my MD. they immediately accomodated me, so it must be important. I learned that seroma can delay healing time as well. aspirated 70cc on first day, was encouraged to have extra girdle or binder on my TT. second day 15 cc and third 4cc. So ok my doctor is happy, im happy. Ill be coming back in 3 weeks, hurrraaayyy! but then next day morning after a long shower and preparation of self( was without my binder only for approx 30-45min ) I noticed my mid suture has somee oozing of puss going on, im not febrile so it may just be on the skin and I started cleaningop in a sterile fashion then placed my girdle back on. Felt nauseated so I took anti nausea and started munching on my unzalted crackers. I suddenly felt like a baby was turning in my belly, gave me a soft kick (very wierd), then I suddenly felt swollen and bloated. husband and I immediately look at mu belly and there it was, a wave on my left side again. Seroma! Again! how can it happen so fast? just like that. I started calling my MDs number , its saturday and I dont think its an emergency so I just left avoicemail. Today my wound from yesterday that was oozing looks worst, it soft with some separation from suture line. Its different when you are the patient, i over analyze things and think of the worst. i cant wait for tomorrow. I am barely moving for fear my suture line will burst open, slept in upright position with knees slightly bent all night. I cant remove my girdle coz seroma will build up amd im wearing 3! but the wound has to breathe.. let let it air dry. Im starting to question why I did this and getting depressed especially I have to go back to work after almost a month off. Its going to be a 12 hr shift and no easy breezy. I was told we are short staffed and one high risk pregnant co worker cant over work herself as well. With 2 nurse for 21 patients is a looooooonnngg day for sure. Cant wait to see Dr. Younai tomorrow...
