Ok ladies here go the run down: First I arrived at the hospital at 5:15 and registered.. I went to do blood and sign consent forms.. I went to the out patient waiting area..didn't wait long :) I changed into my grown. The nurse put my IV in... Several people came and asked questions (nurse) oh yeah my blood was 9.9 if I would not have started taken iron supplement on my own 1 week before it probably would have been less....about 7:15 dr.perlman came and talk to me and did his markings...about 6 mins later the nurse came can gave me some Happy Juice and rolled me out...I was sleep by the time I made it to the OR. The next thing I remember I wake up hearing a ladies voice saying you did good ms Johnson..i was in pain when i woke up so they gave me a double dose of morphin.. Pain be gone...lol...then she emptied my drains and took me to my room...now I'm in my room with my pain pump....will update later...thanks for all the love, prayers, and support....

Ladies I had my post op visit today and it went very well. First of all day 2 was horrible. I woke up and I was not as swollen(great feeling)I was able to get out of the recliner by myself and walk to the rr w/o help. I was walking very slow when I made it to my dr. The nurse put me on the table and explained everything she was about to do.she pulled my sweats and panties down. Then she wipe my stomach off. She went to my rt side first. She removed the tape and cut the stitche that was holding it in place...then she went to the other side and did the same. She pulled the pain pump tubes first. The tubes were long but it did not hurt...then she went to my rt side and told me she wanted me to take a big breath in and blow it out slow...as I did that she pulled the drain out....it did not hurt...(take the lord). Then she did the other side. She put antibiotic a gaze on the holes. She say it should drain for 24 hr and the hole should close. After that she clean me up. I got off the table and felt GREAT.....I was able to walk better move better....ladies I feel great...I video that visit and it's posted on YouTube on my channel(txstylelady ). She also told me I need to start wearing another garment for the upper body support.

Ladies well today I went out to eat with my family and I walked slow and hunched over. Well after that they wanted to go to the movies which was behind the restaurant. We got our tickets and went sat down. Ok the previews came on and I was ok. The last preview came on and it was a funny one...ladies I tried not to laugh but I couldn't hold it...I laugh and then I cried because I hurt my muscles so bad, we had to leave the movies. We got a rain check...I could barley walk...I took my time... I came hm and took my pain meds...never again will I leave the house if I don't have to...it felt like post op day 2, which y'all know it was really hard for me...ladies please don't over do it...now I'm back to the drawing board....ugh....

To day I went for my second follow up visit.. They removed my belly button stitches, and the ones on my back where he did the lipo. He say I'm healing good and want to see me in two weeks...once I leave the office I sneezed and I heard and felt a pop in my belly. Before I was so tight in my upper abs, now I'm not as tight as I was. I went back to the office and she advised me I just pop a suture. I asked was I ok. She said yes and everything will be alright...I still can't stand straight and tight at the bottom..I'm still not at ease due to the tightness.....
