Hey everyone! So i am less than 48 hours away from surgery and my house is now all in order. My area is all set up with all i think i will need, and food shopping is done.. I hope i didn't forget anything! I though i would start to get those nervous feeling again as i got closer to my date but im still just very excited to get it done and over with and start the healing process.

Does anyone know the best diet to eat while recovering?? I was thinking alot of fresh fruit, yogurt, protien shakes ( which i did buy also)... Anything else i can add to that?

Thanks Ladies!



Hi! I am now 9 days post op and I have to say I...

Hi! I am now 9 days post op and I have to say I feel really good! I had 1 of the 2 drains removed on Tuesday and the last drain possible Friday. I still have fluid draining and my dr will not pull it out if it's still at 25 cc's in which it has been these last 4/5 days. Yesterday it was actually 40cc ( in 24 hrs) for the first time since last week! I don't like the drain but id rather it be coming out that sitting in me so if I have to have it another few days thats fine with me.
I am able to walk around fine I am actually worried i'm doing more than I should. I cannot sit all day it drives me crazy! I'm not cooking and cleaning so much just walking around the house the up and down and streching, and laughing i'm worried will damage my abs.If i laugh to much it hurts and i try not to laugh, but sometimes it happens. Has this happen to anyone else., or is anyone else more active 1 week after surgery? I don't want to rush my self and i feel like im not. Im just doing what my body wants to do.
I will update with another picture of two once i have this last drain removed.

Hey everyone, I am now 1 month post op today...

Hey everyone,

I am now 1 month post op today and I cant say I feel great. I am very swollen to the point my binder just rides up when I sit. There is no point in wearing it its not helping were the swelling is really the worst. Im thinking I might call my PS to try and get an eariler appointment with him. I dont see him for another 2 weeks!

Has anyone ever taken natural water pills? I was thinging of doing that but I want to make sure its ok..Ill check with my ps. I tried ice and it did work for me. I tried putting a towel in my binder and that didnt work either. IDK what else I can do.
As soon as feel like my tummy is back to normal i will post new pictures.

Sorry I have not updated in a very ling time. I am...

Sorry I have not updated in a very ling time. I am going in January for a revision. I ended up with dog ears as well as extra skin on my hip area and pubic area.. its like the swelling never went away. I wear my binder an it makes a difference. But after 9 months I figured my tummy would have taken great shape. I know they say 1 year but its a little disappointing. There is a big difference from the surgery but just need a few tweeks to make it perfect! Hope all fellow march and everyone else have or are healing well.. ill update pictures soon.
