27 Year Old Mommy of 9 Month Old & 9 Year Old 2 C-sections W/ Umibilical Hernia & Diastasis. Urbandale, IA
I use to have an active lifestyle and did martial...
Now that it's over, I can say I know I will be wearing a sexy bikini next summer and I will be back to working out in a couple months! I will never regret this. Worth every penny!! Every woman deserves to feel this good about themselves. Men buy new cars or bikes, women get their hair done and get fixed what exercises can't! Lol I see no problem! :-)
1-4 post op day photos!!
Next day started my menstrual cycle right on time. No big deal really. Still retaining water and swelling but not as bad since I put the binder on nice and tight. To day very much the same as last shower/pat dry/gauze pads/binder. My one drain is becoming organge and yellow already.
Day three; slept a lot today. Had dr appoint and doing very well. He told me I can now walk straight. Showering is the same but now just putting cami on under the binder but no gauze because im not bleeding or oozing.
Day four, same but getting really tired of sleepong on my back. Tried to roll to my side but pulled my muscle repair up right under my sturnum. Thought I mifht call the dr but today day (day 5) the little knot is gone and it doesnt hurt unless I push on it. Again im on zero pain relief. Not even Tylenol. So I think if I ruined anything it would be much more painful! But just a reminder, LISTEN TO YOUR DR!!
Day 5 is not over yet. My only concern is that I still have not gone #2 yet. This is normal for me after surgery, but it still sucks. Im taking stuff for it so hopefully today is the day I go potty! Lol
sorry about grammar and spelling.
Dr Cherny exceeded all my expectations. Down to earth, sincere, knowledgeable, honest at consultation. He's also kind of funny too. I never felt uncomfortable or that I was bothersome with all my question. But, make sure you do all your home work before you go to any surgeon about a procedure so you have your questions ready. Right before surgery the staff was comforting and will do anything to help you feel at easy. Surgery will make anyone nervous, but they know how to help you. After I woke up they were all about me. Everyone was focused on me and treated me like a star. Again they did everything they could to help me feel comfortable and got me ready to go home. They taught my husband everything he needed to know on how to care for me and gave us simple instructions to take home too. After I got home I always had someone I could call no matter what time it was. And I looked at my scar and it was much lower and better than I expected! My new belly button is cute already! I am still swollen and some scabs but I'm only 4 days out. My pain level is low. Today is the first day I have not taken any, none, zero, pain relief what so ever today. Only a little sore like I worked out and the incision is still a little numb but only stings with pressure is applied. I'm very impressed and happy with the work of Dr Cherny and his staff. I know it's only going to get better.
