So i had my one week post op checkup today.....
so i had my one week post op checkup today...staples got taken out and steri-strips put on also i got to put my binder on today...and wow i cannot breathe this thing is so tight...is it supposed to be this tight? other than that ive had a great day and im feeling better about everything :)
So all of my lipo holes have healed up except one...
so all of my lipo holes have healed up except one and it looks pretty red and keeps leaking this yellow stuff...when i went to my 1 week check up the nurse who put my steristrips on acted like it wasnt a big deal but it leaks thru onto my compression binder and on my clothes. i finally taped some gauze over it but it soaks thru after a few hours...plus how low am i supposed to wear my compression garment? all the way over my incision???? i hate having it down too low because then i have fat coming out the top looking like a muffin top uhhh. lol help
Also forgot to say....the lipo hole isnt red...
also forgot to say....the lipo hole isnt red around it just inside the hole, plus no fever . is it just normal drainage?
Havent updated this in a few days....well ive been...
havent updated this in a few days....well ive been so great on my dieting but this weekend was really hard on me...my bulimia got the best of me and i binged and purged all weekend.....i feel like a lost cause. im looking into therapy 2moro morning. this disease is not goin to beat me....i think once im able to workout i wont feel so horrible about eating. its just the simple fact i eat and i sit here...i try to walk around and be as active as possible but i get dizzy after awhile and have to sit down. also....last week my doc took all my staples out and put on steri strips which of course they all fell off that night lol so i had to go to walgreens and buy something similar but on both sides of my incision its open...like every other spot its closed and healing but on both of my hips its still open like an inch and i clean it when i clean my belly button cause i dont want it getting infected but dang its starting to sting....maybe my doc needs to stitch that back up lol. anyone else experience that???
Hey yall...hope everyone has had happy and healthy...
hey yall...hope everyone has had happy and healthy healing...ive been up and down...my birthday was last week so i celebrated and feel like i gained 10 pounds lol...but my doc gave me the okay to start exercising again so i joined my gym back. 2night was my first time and wow im so worn out but i keep imagining myself in a bikini lol....the eating disorder is still a struggle. rome wasnt built in a day so i know this disease isnt just magically dissapear its going to be a battle everyday but i have to be stronger than it....thanks for all the love and support. love u all :)
