tomorrow will be one week since my tummy tuck and it still hurts decently when doing certain things. My stomach is so tight so that is what I feel. I can't cough or sneeze or cry because then the pain is unbearable. I'm supposed to go back to work on Thurs. but I'm not sure I can do that. The stomach though is flat. I can't wait to go to the Dr. and get this drain out of me. Seeing a whole underneath the bandange is something that i don't want to deal with anymore. The amount of blood filling up the drain is progressively is getting less. I still can't stand up straight and tomorrow will be the first time in a week that i am driving. I've been off the pain killers and muscle relaxers for 2 days because the pain is not bad, except when doing the things mentioned above.
I'm usually a very active person who takes a shower daily. So the recovery is really hard for me. I've been taking a sponge bath daily or almost daily and this is very hard. I feel very dirty and can't wait to take a shower and wash my hair the proper way. Feel free to write me w/ any questions or comments. I'll be happy to share.
