Im Impatient

so im being impatient i might still have some swelling and my tummy isnt flat as i want it maybe im just being critical but i feel like im not small enough. however, i am happy i can fit into my old clothes and some of them are too big now. I just dont have the shape i want. maybe im being unrealistic

Your looking good! Your scar looks great . I'm 11 weeks post op & still not sure I'm 100% satisfied yet. It really does take time for the swelling to go down though. But I do wish I was tighter & flatter. But I do need to wait till 6 months at least.

You look great and still have a lot of swelling. It's a process. Focus on clean eating, and use your CG and you body will take shape.

I can feel ya on the not having the desired results! I really wanted a shorter scar and that's what I got, however, I still have love handles in my hips that show in my jeans, and I'm like, shoot, I should have had him do more lipo! It's hard not to be critical of the final result, even though we all well aware we look way better without our old belly! I think you look great and I also think your still swollen! However, I have a feeling that my diet had a lot to do with how swollen I am! So maybe changing our diets will help!

Wow you look great and your incision is amazing for 3 weeks! I don't even see puckering (which is normal and does go away). I would suggest kelo cote for scar treatment.

Your Dr should be let you know when it is ok to start Scar TX. My PS told me that I could put on Mederma or use Silicone sheets but nothing has proven medically to diminish scars. My PS stated that rubbing the scar is the best thing I could do. Just get permission from your PS to do so. Your body went through a lot of trauma. You're going to be swelling for a long time yet. I am still seeing results and I am 8 months out. Time truly does fly quickly.

I'm 2 1/2 weeks PO. I notice I swell more when I eat a lot of carbs. Keeps your carbs around 100g a day and see what happens.

Sodium makes you swell. Try and cut back sodium intake. read labels, some things contain high sodium that you wouldn't think would. I'm 8 months PO and still have swelling. My PS stated that I could have swelling up to a year. Humidity also made me swell. Thankfully my summer is almost over and most of my swelling has gone. Still swell a lot when I sit for long periods, or exercise.

6 months.....so well worth it!

I'm 8 weeks PO tomorrow and I'm still swollen. So you may be on the same boat with me. I want to see results, too. No one I know went through the swelling like I am but they also had tons of other more serious issues than I did. So, I would rather have the swelling :)
