I have two girls both c-sections and have hated my belly for as long as I can remember I finally decided to do something for myself! I'm very excited but nervous at the same time

OMG! I can't believe its one week away. It seems like I've been waiting forever... Today I will go rent my recliner! So excited!

I cant believe it's the night before my procedure!...

I cant believe it's the night before my procedure! OMG!! Well today I went to my PS to get marked, I love the fact he does it the day before because I was able to ask a lot of questions and I was able to see where he was going to make the incision! WOW! this is so surreal! My husband is being very supportive and running around getting a few last things that I needed, so I think I'm ready.I will be praying alot tonight for God's favor and for good results!

PO day 2 and feeling pretty good pain is very minimum so not taking pain meds till tonight. I've been walking around evey hour or so and it gets easier each time. My boobs do not hurt at all thank God for that! The only thing that's painful is when I try to cough and I can't an I haven't been able to have a BM ;(. I have to say my daughter has been amazing and beyond! She stayed with me over night at the hospital and has been helping me with everything. She empties out my drains and writes it down she makes sure I'm comfortable and has not wanted to leave my side. My hubby is helping with the errands and driving my 6 year old around to grandmas house. My mom has been cooking for me do all in all it's been good! I hope everyone's healing well!

PO day 5 - Today I went to see my PS for my first follow up and I got to take a peek! I'm very happy with the results so far I know I know Im still swollen so I have to be patient. He told me everything looks good. He took the drains out which was kind of a creepy feeling but it didn't hurt. I have to go back on Monday for another follow up. I feel very swollen and my belly is not 100% flat... but from all I've learned on this site that is pretty normal. Hope everyone is healing well!

PO day 6 woke up feeling pretty good this morning, so I decided to go to work for a couple of hours. I took my 17 year old daughter with me, I don't have much vacation time so I'm trying to save as many days as I can. I had a pretty good day kept walking to a minimum and had my daughter get the stuff off the printer so I didn't over do it. The only thing that is really bothering me is the swelling! It seems to start creeping up on me and then it's full blown! As soon as I got home I took a shower put my binder on and have been in bed for the past two hours.

Hi ladies... well today I went for my follow up....

Hi ladies... well today I went for my follow up. He cut the ends of the disolvable stitches on my boobs and TT scar and told me everything is looking good.. however... I feel it could look better LOL. I dont feel I'm completely flat havent seen that as yet... My left hip where the scar ends has little bumps and there is a little pleating. He assured me all this is normal and that I should start massaging the scars 3 times a day with any type of lotion I choose. I asked him about Vitamin E and he told me to be careful because some people tend to get little pimples with vitamin E but if I didnt have a problem with it to go ahead and use it. when I look in the mirror I definitely see an improvement from before however I'm not where I want to be yet. Hopefully this is all swelling and will subside with time :o). He also said I can start light exercise like walking on a treadmill but not to do any heavy lifting or anything strenuous. My boobs are looking really good... before the procedure I had my left boob slightly bigger than the right so I made it very clear to my PS that he had to remove tissue so that they would be more symetrical.. The left one still looks a little bigger but he said that he got them as close as possible in the OR and that since he had to mess with the left one more that it would be more swollen. (it is bruised, the right one isnt) so I guess this is all a waiting game....
Hope everyone is healing well!
