I have been wanting to get my stomach fixed ever...
I have been wanting to get my stomach fixed ever since my second baby came out. I hate surgery and anesthesia so I was a hot mess! I interviewed 3 doctors and chose Dr. Sanderson and so glad I did. Had surgery on Thursday and came home same day. Today is day 3 and I haven't taken a pain pill all day. I have had 2 C sections and I would say this is easier. The part that hurts the most is where he lipo suctioned my flanks!
5 days post op Doctor visit
Went to see Dr. Sanderson today and he was super pleased so far! I have to say I was relieved that my drain came out. It honestly is the worst part of the whole procedure for me. I only had one and am glad I did, but so glad it is out! Here are some updated pics.

Week 2 Post Op
Went in today for my 2 week post op. They took off their steri strip and honestly I think the scar looks really good for 2 weeks out. He told me to continue to wear my binder 24 hours a day. I am still swollen and slightly bruised. One thing I would say to expect is the weird nerve feeling when someone touches your stomach. Kind of gives me goosebumps and not a fan of someone touching my stomach yet as I am sure the nerve endings are healing. I go back in a week to start scar therapy Embrace.
As far as the past week I have been great! Doing my normal activities. No pain. I am sleeping fine and can lay on my side which is nice. Looking forward to taking a bath!
