I'm 22, 5'9 and 205lb
My highest weight recorded was 288lb. I started loosing weight when I was 17. I got as low as 220 by the time I was 21. At age 22 I was in a bad car accident where open gastrointestinal surgery was performed. Due to the accident I lost 40 more pounds weighing around 180. I now weigh 205lb and I'm healthy but due to the weight loss and accident I now have a lot of loose skin and a vertical scare down my belly.
January 15 I'm scheduled for tummy tuck and tightening of my muscles. I'm so nervous I don't know what to expect. I'm more nervous about not being at my weight goal of 180lb. I almost wish I had more time but at the same time I want the 15th to be here already!!!!
TODAY IS THE DAY!!!!!!!!
Surgery went fine!! I will be posting pics as soon as I can... So far my pain is at a 8 but it's tolerable as long as I stay still.. Lol hope recovery goes by fast I really want to see under this girdle but hurts too much to move.
Day one after surgery
I'm hoping to get a pic up today I'm just as curious as everyone else is hopefully my pain goes down a bit so I can remove this girdle to snap a few pics.. I'll keep u all posted. Pain is at a 7/10
No drains by the way
No drains where inserted into me during the procedure by the way that's why My pain is still high.. Bear with me tho..
Happier with results each and every day
Hello so it's been about a week or so that I'v been on here so I decideded to update. Earlier today I got my sutures out from around my belly bottom. For some reason I thought that was going to hurt but didint at all.. As for my tummy Iooks flatter and flatter I love positive results like the ones I am seeing!!! :D
Few days later
I feel sick to my stomach but I think that because I ate something I shouldn't have.. I'm still soar but doing so much more by myself. Here's a pic :)
Idk I'm kind of scared and nervous with how my tummy is starting to look tbh. I feel like I might have been tighter looking these past few weeks because Iv been very swollen. I understand I will be swollen for a minimum of 2 months before I see better results but either way regardless I notice a tiny little swelling coming down a bit each day and I'v noticed each morning that my tummy isn't as flat or as tight as it was the day before or in the beginning... I also have really noticeable dog handles but then again it's only been 3 weeks after surgery.. I'm starting to think I should have included lipo in this procedure. :/
