7 Days Post-op TT - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I finally did it. I'm happy with the scar but scared because I'm so swollen. I was fine until day 6 during check up I took off girdle for a few hrs, till I got home. I regret that. I know swelling is normal but it feels scary. Had lipo on arms too. Otherwise I feel good and can't wait for recovery to be over. Drinking lots of water, and following docs order. Any suggestions? reassurances?

I apologize for the improper intro. I'm 45, married 25 yrs w/ 4 grown children. I've been exercising & watching what I eat for yrs. Lost several inches on waist & thighs, was happy until I realize my middle jiggled & moved (yuck!)Had a trainer at the gym & all which made me stronger. I'm fit & solid but didn't like the jiggle in the middle and so I decided to do something for me. Swelling is down a bit & I'm looking ahead. (big smile)

Just to add, the staff & nurse of Dr.L is awesome. Like family. All smiles, and most important shows the most patience regarding phone calls, questions and playing phone tag. My nurse is awesome; Ms. K. So looking forward to the end results.

I read somewhere that after healing from TT, you can put a small marble in the belly button to open it up. Does anyone remember reading this? Replies appreciated.
It's 12 days Post-op; feeling better. I drove to the store. I can't wait to be able to pick up things off the floor. I can't wait to get back to my normal rountines. I realize every one's results vary. I'm happy but I won't be doing this again. Ready to grow old gracefully

It's been 6 wks. I feel very good. Walking, drinking lots of water and resting when my body tells me to. I look in the mirror every time and can't believe that's me. My hubby has become my stalker; he's amazed. I feel good; still swollen at the end of the day though. Can't wait to hit the gym, but for now I'm content with walking. I'm finally freee of the garment/girdle, sleeping on sides now (feels wierd) :)
