Holy Hiccups Batman!
I'm so much better, I think I can even better absorb my meds, I'm taking so little now. It seems like my pain is more muscle sorness and back pain now. I have been using the P Style to urinate with , I love it so much easier than unbuttoning, sitting, re-button, only to all that again in an hour, no thanks! So my pain is at a minimum, I'm getting rest, I'm learning the ropes, everything looks good, so I'm happy :) I also wanted to add I really like my compression garment, especially the fact that it buttons on the side instead of the front which I think would put pressure on tender abdominals. I hope to post pictures soon, it's kinda hard to take selfies, and I still tire easily. Happy Healthy Healing girls!
Goodbye Gross Grenades!
So glad to lose those damn things, whew! My doc was quite quick about it too, pulled both at the same time. So I didn't have to feel discomfort twice. I really thought that was very efficient , Thanks Dr.! It didn't hurt at all it just felt
odd, makes you say ewe. Dr. said all looks good and to keep up the good healing vibes. So yup, I'm happy :-)
I had to share the good news, tomorrow is one week of being on the flat side! I guess it's true, time flies when you're having fun! Will post pictures tomorrow. Happy Healthy Healing RS family!
What A Week
My incision line looks healthy and is starting to shed the scab, yup kinda itchy. I'm putting pure shea butter and Bio oil mixed together very near it, not quite directly on it, helps a ton. I sleep great every night, but early morning I'm so achey, feels like I'm doing ceunches in my sleep! Hahaha, ya right, like I would exercise, asleep, I barely do it awake!
I learned from having a breast reduction not to judge things to early, so when it comes to the results I see so far I'm pretty pleased, and the tiny thing that I am barely bothered by is on the wait and see list. One thing I will share is I had hoped that my scar to be about a half inch lower, but quickly got over it, because I had a natural crease about 4 inches long right where my incision now lies. If my PS didn't place my incision where it's at I would have a line above my mons and esthetic wise would have been sub-par. So happy with his decision in the end. I'm still walking hunched but have ditched my walker for the last wk. I tire pretty easily, wow, guess all the energy is reserved for healing. That's it for now RS buds, healthy happy healing!
Two Wks Today
3 Weeks Today!
I'm feeling pretty good doing almost everything, but modified to some degree or another. Yes, ladies that includes the "wifely duties" , yup that's modified as well! Lol! I was hoping I got lucky and would have better over the moon endings now...nope, same (yet great) endings. (another gal on here got that extra dose of luck!) I'm pretty wiped out after a full day, which means extra rest the next day, resting when I need it I think is helping me feel optimal considering my body is still in a healing stage. Swelling, yup every day, it's like my new buddy, just there to some degree, always. Hey I also lost between 7-10lbs! Scale hasn't budge since then, but I will take it! I found my muscle separation wasn't that bad, 1.5" I have had 5 good size babies, so I goes to show that sometimes it's mostly genes that make us look like we do. My only real complaint is I lost my cg! I removed it to wash it, and the dumb thing disapeared! So now my ab support is not what it needs to be, and I don't like the feeling, I want my blankie, wahhh! :'-(
Pray I find it soon, it's been like 3 days already! Happy Healthy Healing girls!
I'm so having a Lord of The Rings moment! My husband found it under the sofa, I know it sounds tantalizing, maybe even a little fun kinky-ness, but no such fun ladies, I truly have no clue how it got there. But I did do a quick twirl dance while hugging the damn thing! Can I say #cg happiness! Happy Sunday girls, have a great week!
I Have Ribs!
I have ribs. Yup y'all heard right, I have ribs! I woke this morning and was pleased that swelling was relatively low. So I was doing my massage and that's when I saw them, my ribs, I haven't seen those things in years! It's the little things and I just had to share with my RS pals, mainly because you truly understand. Oh and hubby said I'm getting sexy, thenqquickly said sexier! I will take what I can get! Have blessed Sunday girls.
If ya know what I mean; ) Anywho, I feel about the same as last week, the rug burn feeling has diminished but is still there. I have a little hardness above the incision in some spots still. I'm missing twice a day with a concoction I made ; shae butter, olive oil, coconut oil, tea trea oil, frankincense oil, it's mostly Shea, and
Little of the others. I love it, I can use it on my face and hair as well. I posted a picture of me in a swimsuit I bought but was to small ( bra cup ) it's on a fashion mag template, as if! Ha! I thought it fun, but mostly funny! I don't see my ps for a while , but I spoke with him about a dog ear on my left hip, so at the magic 3 months I will get it revised, 30 min in office under local, no biggy. I'm still not carrying my smaller toddler, but I have picked up to set him from place to another, like from ground to cart, or cart to car, nothing more, the older little guy is just out of luck he's a solid rock, no thanks! I hope you are all doing great, happy, healthy, healing!
Sorry I Skipped Wk 6!
A Couple Things I Forgot
9 wks Life's An Itch
I have a picture of the wrap/binder thing I like to wear around the house in the evening for extra support when I don't want the heavy duty things on, it great for gym too. WHAT I bought a bikini! ?? Yup, sure did, and I'm gonna rock that bastard this summer! Have a blessed weekend gals, and happy healthy healing!
Scar Revision Today!
I LOVE Dr. Gross, he is a very, very talented doctor. His staff is very professional, and warm. I had my breast reduction done with him and he did a great job, I was so worried when I first saw the results, but he really did deliver on his word, I'm exactly the size he said I would be. I'm very confident that this experience will be just as positive.
