I'm swollen and my mind is playing games with me

Ladies I understand I'm just swollen, and I'll get better results within weeks please don't think I'm judging my surgeon, I'm not, I was just expecting more that's all, I was explain by my nurse I'll see a differences in weeks she even promise me, Dr.Basu and his staff are one of the best crews out there .

Hi ladies, I had a follow up appointment I'm on my 12th days po, spoke to the doctor and he answered all my questions and concern.....being a diabetic my process is way way slower than other , another words my swollenes will last for 4 to 6 months, he told me everything look good, not to worry. He explain the reason why I had so much swollenes not to worry to stay calm, just in case my upper stomach doesn't go down by 6 months, we will talk about upper lipo which he droughts that will happen..
He was being very honest and sweet. I'll wait 4 to 6 months and I ll see my final result, he made me feel so happy, I believe ever word he told me and my hubby. ....Dr.Baus is the best no regret at all can't wait for my final results

Time and patience is what I need

17 op today feeling tired not to good but better than other days, still swollen but its going down, slowly I could tell on my summer dresses, don't have the body I dream of yet but with time I strongly believe I'll get there.....still have my drains both of them which are getting very painful, they're bothering me so much, I'm eating much more than before so I won't feel so weak, but I'm still limiting myself, I want this swollenes to go down so I could see my final result. ...I want to feel myself again...I miss going out, I miss hanging out with my friends, If I do visit I need to leave right away because I can't hang :/ huh with time I understand with time I need patience that's all....have a great Sunday ???????

Hello ladies will I had my 2nd visit, it went great all the ladies especially Elizabeth and the nurses are so sweet and very nices they made feel so comfortable, Dr.Basu team are just awesome I highly recommend him and his team....will nurse called me in and told me she was going to pull one tube out she made me change and get comfy, will she explain to me the process and I told her I was getting nervous she said not to worry she'll count to three and on three she'll pull, she counted and it was over....lol werid feeling that's all I scream but of nerves, Friday if I drain less than 30 second second drain will be pull out yepie.....nurse told me everything look great cut healing perfectly, I ask about my swollenes she said not to worry its swollen but its going down slowly but surely and I agree.....will ladies I'm feeling better, stomach is getting flatter , still swollen but with time I know it'll go down , I can't wait for the weeks to pass...I was X large or 1x now I could fit in middle to size large in dresses very happy can't wait to try on my jeans this weekend I'm praying they fit not sure if they will, will cross my figures they do :) great day beautiful tt friends :)

Updated

Feeling tired and very swollen but thinking positive, I have few months still to get my final result I'm a diabetic and healing for me is longer than a normal person, trying to have patience....have a safe weekend my beautiful tt ladies

Not happy just yet

Hi my tummy tuck ladies will I'm actually a month today and still not happy with my results however swollenes has gone down a lot but my upper area I'm just not please with I'm losing patience, my bb area is red and hurting so much bummer and my left cut open up a little not good, I'm under antibiotics which has me drain, I been very moody, honestly emotionally a wreak, I see so many beautiful ladies that started off with my body type and ended up like a model, even my diabetic friend she look so beautiful no lie, why does my body have to react this way l, sorry my beautiful tummy tuck friends my journey has been tough, and I'm just venting, how I wish I had done things so differently , posting pictures up

one month updated fotos

One month today need a long way to go :/

Feeling less swollen today, roll coaster !!!

This weekend has been awful for me, I've not been feeling good for the past two days,burning pain in my stomach, throwing up, and lose bowl movements, oh lord if it's not one thing its another, only good thing Is I woke up less swollen then other days not sure if its because I'm not able to hold anything in or what but I'm starting to like :) lol, I wish I just felt better but I don't :/ .....
I didn't think having a tummy tuck done was going to be so hard for me, I'm able to take the pain isn't that emotionally I mean it's a roll coaster, some days I'm happy some days I'm moody or sick, I want to feel myself again, I miss my owe me not physically but emotionally....I want time to fly I wasn't one of the lucky ladies who's feeling great in a month I wish.....Good day my beautiful ladies????????

Don't compare yourself to others

My journey so far hasn't been as great as other I was expecting more than I received but I'm just 5 weeks I still have a long way to go, I'm still very swollen but in my mind I see nothing but fat, ladies who haven't had a tt done but are about to do your research, learn about what it is to have it done just don't see the before and after pictures please, we all have different body and we will all turn out differently, that was my mistake now I'm paying for it, I'm flat but my upper area is hug my waist line was done from my upper area so I see a shape in my back but not in the front I'm square which I wasn't expecting that I was wanted a curvy look which surgeon said he was going to do, I'm guessing I'm still swollen, so I'll update in few month on that, ladies don't get me wrong all my jean fit which are size 10 and no more gutt sticking out as much, I do way better than before but I was jyst expecting more :/ hopefully when I turn 2 months my update will be different but for now I feel the same for the past two weeks, will update in 2 months ladies be safe and take care ?????????

just a picture update that's all

Ladies I won't update much just upload a picture will update on my second month 8/6
Take care of beautiful ladies

7 weeks picture

7 weeks pictures

Back on track

Hi ladies sorry I haven't been able to update for the month of August, honestly it wasn't a good month for me , I hated the way I look, I wasn't please with my results, I felt very down especially when my surgery told me I had to se my pc Dr because the anxieties I was having wasn't normal and I was probably gaining weight, that could be the reason why my stomach look that huge, I disagree and I was disappointed when he said that because I had same size of stomach before I had surgery , but I listen has he speak he mention if I lose 3 pounds per month he'll liposuction on my upper area for free, I then got very happy because it made me realize he really cares to get me the body I want it just not the money , will I agree and I did what I was told and I went to go see my pc, will he strongly believe I was in a deep depression and he put me on depression pills, its been three weeks since then and guess what ladies, I feel like I'm out of the darkness, I'm thinking straight now, I'm still not 100% happy with my results for 13000 I spend I was expecting way more but I'm not about to miss up my tummy tuck and I'm working my butt off by exercising to lose some weight so Dr.Basu could liposuction my upper body and hopefully I'll get the results i was expecting the first time..
ladies ladies I'm saving up for a breast implants that's my next processor , I wanted to stick with Dr.Basu but I'm not 100% sure it all depends how he treat me when I return in. 2 months, will my ladies I'm posting few pictures. ......

Back on track

sorry for all the misspell words, hopefully you all understood what I was trying to say I was updating late at night while my kids were asleep and the light were turn off lol once again I'm so sorry...
Dr.Bass

Dr.Basu will be my surgeon not turning back anymore Elizabeth was the best of the best she explain everything in detail and she answered all my email even after hours..... Love. the nurse and Elizabeth Anesthesiologist omg she was the best !
