Hi I delivered twins with c-sec in early 2009....
excited yet nervous
Got home today
Anyway with all the painkillers it's quite manageable. Not as bad as I thought it would be on day 1. Will update my before pics soon.
Sleeping is another issue. No position is a comfy one. Woke up with sore neck!
I m going to the doc tomm. Will kep u posted.
Good sleep for frst time
I m gonna meet the TT surgeon today. Looking fwd to that.
I was hugely disappointed to see wrinkled skin around belly button. Literally cried. I will update the pics soon. He assured me that's the best result that can be achieved and it will get better than it looks. But I had a hard time believing him! Anyone had similar experience?
Should I be worried???
Well this is how my scar and BB looks like. I m not worried about the scar but am terrified to see awful uneven fatty bulges around my incision!! And the skin around the BB is wrinkly as well!!
Honestly, should I be worried? Has anyone had or seen sthg like this?
I've been taking plenty of freshly made juices. Veggies fruits. I add about 50 ml aloe Vera juice to my juice on empty stomach which apparently helps with digestion, constipation and healing.
Shower: not yet !! Was told not to for another week. Just french bath at the moment
I m confused... Is my tummy still fat or is it swelling ?
Been active or 2 days
The minute I remove the corset my tummy is super itchy.
My incision and BB is very dry at the moment. Am going to my PS this Saturday and would like to talk about him
I m also gonna ask him if he really thinks my tummy is swollen or is it fat! I just can't get it out of my head. It's def better than before TT but when I bend my tummy still looks fat. And am telling u, it's still soft. Can't stop thinking if my tummy is tight enough. Anyway thanks for reading my rant too :)
What are u ladies doing with the BB? How do u clean inside , if u do?
Btw I went out for dinner for the first time post surgery. And I looked preggers all bloated and swollen.
Incision & BB started to heal
Swelling came down a bit. My energy levels r normal during the day but evenings am totally exhausted (I have 4 yr old twin girls)
About the bulge my PS says he KNOWS its going to come down and look flat 6-8 weeks post. I hope and pray he is right as that's still my biggest concern! He said he is expecting it to reduce my 1cm at least. I see sooooooo many women having a flat belly by week 2 or 3 so it really plays with ur head!
I m still not happy with the flab although my PS 'assured' me it WILL get better after 2 or 3 weeks. I m still hoping.
My belly button is dark part of it looks healed and dry and some areas still healing.
He has good bedside manners. Very patient and answers all my questions. Heard great things about him. Hope and pray all goes well!
