Hello everyone, a little bit about myself. I have two awesome kids, ages 21 and 14. Decided to have a tummy tuck to get rid of my muffin top. I am 39, 5'7" and 158 lbs. I have kept this same weight for a few years so I decided it was time to get it done. Very nervous, but ready to get this done.
Well this is my last day with this muffin top....

Got home took my meds, then to sleep I went. I am sore, but not to bad ( have a pain pump) my butt is sore, I guess cause it was a bandoplasty ( meaning he went all the way around). Fun fun for me (sarcasm).
I put undecided because I haven't seen it yet, not because of my doctor he was greeeat!!!!
Well I have been resting this weekend like the...

3 days po and doing pretty good. Still sleeping in my recliner, but I am able to get out of it by myself today. Ya. Still pretty hunched over and back killing me and no bm yet.
I do have my pain pump but I think I'm almost out of it, so I think I say goodbye to it tomorrow :(.
I have taken two showers, pretty tough but makes me feel better to b clean. I don't have my compression garment yet. Dr said he waits till the drains are out before putting them on. Which I am glad for.
I definitely get tired very easy but my body has been through a lot so I'm not gonna push it.
Husband goes to work tomorrow, so it's just my son and I. I think we got this. Lol. I will let him take care of me instead of the other way around. :)
Well it's been one week and a day. Thank goodness...

Had my first PO appt. today since my surgery. I got one drain out and he said I should have the last two out by Wednesday. I can't wait. He said everything is looking good. He said make sure I keep resting, just walking around no cleaning. Oops I swept and mopped my floors yesterday, but I didn't tell him that. I did do that while sitting in a chair. ( thought that way I wasn't cheating) lol. So no more cleaning for me.
I have been doing pretty good. I have been able to shower since the second day with help from my awesome hubby, ecxept today i did it by myself. :) unlike most of the ladies on here my dr didn't put on a binder so I got to see my scar the second day when my husband took the bandages off. We did freak out cause it was so ugly. It looks much better now and getting better everyday. Can't wait till I can put some cream on it. I did go through a why did I do this stage when my drains starting hurting. He took that one that was bothering me out today. Thank goodness.
Still hunched over a little bit, but not to bad. Actually stood up for a long time today and my back didn't ache for a change. I wish I could just sit without my bottom hurting. Mine was a full tt and he did the scar low so it kinda bothers me when sitting down.
Plan on going out to eat tomorrow, somewhere with outside seating Just to get out of the house and enjoy this beautiful weather.
I pray everyone is having a speedy recover. (cause it feels like it is sooo slow).

Went to my second po appt. and got my last 2 drains out. Yeah!! I also got a binder to start wearing, which is okay. I say better than those drains. Dr. still not letting me do anything yet but that's okay. Was a beautiful day outside so stayed outside for awhile and loved it. Can't wait to go shopping.
Happy healing everyone!!

Go to see my ps tomorrow for a check up. Not much has changed. Just a spot or two I would like to ask him about.
Starting to walk up straight, only get a little back pain if I stand for long periods, but getting better. First day back to work, wasn't that bad. After work went to Walmart to do some grocery shopping. Now I am worn out.
Gonna get some rest, will let you know how my ps appt. went.
Happy Healings everyone!!

Went to PS appt. on Wednesday, Dr said everything was healing great. I had a spot he said he will fix in his office when everything heals. He will just numb the spot and smooth it out. So that made me feel better. I only have to wear my cg till middle of next week, then just part time. He said I can use spanx or whatever I prefer. I can also start working out slowly, treadmill and arms, but absolutely no abs. :(
I did do the treadmill today, a little over a mile and I was tired and my back started getting sore so I stopped, didn't want to over do it. Gonna start the weights next week.
I did finally go shopping for the first time. I was nervous thinking I would still b in the same size I was b4 the surgery. So I grab that size (10-12) and decided to grab a few 8's and they fit. Yeah!!! I was so excited and they fit good. So I hope after all my swelling is gone I might b a little smaller. But I am happy with the 8's. :-)
I have been feeling pretty good, little tired here and there but that's to b expected. Swelling in the afternoon and after I eat to much salt. Got to keep from to much of that. But it's hard. Lol.
Hope everyone is healing nicely.
Today I'm 7 weeks po. Yeah!!! Had my po appt...

Still swollen dr said i should see my results around mid June. (cant wait) Feeling good,
Did my first workout today. Felt good, but starting over stinks. Lol sore and unable to do as much as I did before surgery. Guess I'll just have to take it slow and work back up to it.
Gonna try and post 7 weeks pictures tonight.
Happy healings to everyone!!!

Awesome doctor and staff. I used him in 2007 for ba and lipo so I knew he would do a great job. He explained everything very thorough during consoltation for the tt that I only had a few questions to ask. Very professional.
