Dr Wilson said he doesn't use the drains anymore. How was it for you?

It was easy not having to deal with anything else to me just by reading on here the drains seemed like another thing to deal with.

Was just looking at your pics... we have very similar before pics of the belly (my surgery isn't until Dec 28th). I cant believe how great you look after 1 week... I hope you will post some 3 week photos soon!

Even with swelling, it has to feel great to no longer deal with saggy skin :)

Oh yes that is definitely the bonus!

I have been really sore today, dr took off the steri tape off my scar and my tummy feels like it is going to open up, real tender feeling. I started the mederma cream on my scar last night and it felt funny putting it on the scar. I am sure all this will take time to work out.

I bet you are sore.  The first couple of weeks back to work I was a total train wreck.  I would swell up by noon, was tired and sore and pretty much wanted to cry by the end of the day. 

It will be ok without the tape but I know it does feel strange.  It is a really crazy sensation but it settles down in 3-4 days.  Just keep massaging the tummy and incision line with either Mederma cream, Bio Oil of Palmers Vit E oil.
