I'm a large woman... Always have been. I got tired of having fat rolls under my breasts. I love the look that I have now, but the healing - not so much. I have an infection and tunneling in my belly. I have an ugly place on one breast. Doc isn't worried and he and staff are great. When I think I'm gonna die, he is always willing to tell me it's gonna be okay.
I think that I'm currently 4 1/2 weeks post op and I have to pack my belly twice a day with Dakins - which is a bleach solution. I took Levaquin for 7 days for infection. Now, the Dakins is simply to help with the odor. The odor isn't for infection, because that should all be gone, so what is it for. Well, it's the fat necrosis. I had a thin layer of fat left over the abdominal wall. Now, that layer is dying on the inside and producing a horrid green disgusting mess that smells like.... well, dead tissue.
I go to the doc again tomorrow. I go twice a week and I pack my belly twice a day. I know that I'm only 4 weeks post- op, but this is already making me crazy. Will try to post pics later. SO FAR, it was worth it.
