This website has been a Godsend. I first stumbled upon it while pondering my decision to have the much needed procedure done. But after reading all the reviews and advice my fears were still there but few.
April15,2013- was my surgery Dat I had to be there by 6am. I met with the PS he marked my areas and then I was off to the OR to meet with the rest of the team. I must say that the 1day post-op wasn't as bad as I thought. I did have pain but a pain pump was administered so it kept me comfortable.

Day 6 days PO
I'm still pretty much swollen the the most annoying thing Is my drains. I'm praying they are.removed at my post op visit on Wednesday.
I do have 1 questions it normal after a few days to have a yellow coming through your drainage tubes instead of blood.

Hi do you have any before and after pics?

Hi Pat, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us!

How did you post-op appointment go? Were you able to get your drains out? If you don't mind me asking, why did you need this surgery? Was it from weight loss or just general excess skin?

I hope you're doing well!
