Day 7 Post Op - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Even though I'm in a lot of pain, I'm so happy I did the tummy tuck. I can't wait for the swelling to go down so I can truly see the results. I am 38 yrs old mother of 4 beautiful children. I had my tummy tuck June 15th. I have been looking forward to this surgery since I had my last child....and she is turning 7 next month. I can't wait to feel sexy again. My husband tells me I'm beautiful but I am doing this for myself. I wish everyone else lots of luck on their surgery and recovery :)

It's day 5 post op and I'm not taking pain pills....

It's day 5 post op and I'm not taking pain pills. I'm dealing with the pain and discomfort. I can't wait to get the drain removed on Saturday.

Once you get the drain removed. You will feel a little better. Make sure your getting up and moving around too. That helps to get everything circulating. I notice the more I laid down the worse I felt. I never had any pain though, just discomfort. It takes a lot of patience. I'm still swollen with fluids on me at 7 weeks. Going out today to exercise for the first time.

Yes I'm still in pain but I've been depressed...

Yes I'm still in pain but I've been depressed about my stretch marks and round shape for years. I can'[t believe I finally decided to get a tummy tuck with lipo and hernia repair. I'm really happy with the results but OMG THE PAINNNNNN!!! I'm so glad I read this forum prior to surgery because it gave me a realistic view of what to expect.

First week was really rough...they finally removed the drain today...day 7. I probably have to go back to in a few days...wish I could stay home longer.
Looking Fab!!! :-)
