Two days after I ended up in the hospital I popped my internal stitches from throwing up and now my belly button is dying. I needed 8 bags of blood and they removed 800 cc of blood clots from under the dkin. I am devstated about the necrosis. I don't kno2 what tto do, the surgeon did a gret job. But these things happen. I just hope they can sabe my belly button

I uploaded a new picture my scar looks horrible. I am having such a hard time dealing with this I spend alot of time crying. I saw a plastic surgeon today he told me I would never wear a two piece bathing suit again. I begged for an awnser apparently this can not be fixed. My pubic area is pulled up and two inches from my belly button, and even that is black and dead. I can't seem to get in the holiday spirit sometimes I even think I wish the doctors did not save me so I would never have had to look at my deformed body

Well still looking like I need to wait till june...

Well still looking like I need to wait till june for revison...I have these days when I am so swollen still it feels like the skin is pulling.My spirits are a tad bit better.It is frustrating when I wear a tight tanktop it looks like I have ledge where the scar is so it resembles having two pant line under you shirt....Anyone else have this

I am in the hospital again my stomach started...

I am in the hospital again my stomach started swelling and I put on 20 lbs in 48 hours!!! So they had me come 2 hrs down to NYC so I could be at their hospital... Well I am still here and looking like I will be here a little while longer. It looks like I have a soft tissue infection. The doctors have been good but the actual hospital at Lenox hill is AWFUL you have to ask your nurse 5 times to get your mess they constantly forget about you the food makes regular hospital food taste like four star cuisine and while I was in the er one of the reasone you had to ask 10 times for things is because the staff was huddled up in an er bay watching the football game.... So yeah I am still in pain I have had several colds and vomiting episodes post op atleast being in the hospital I am getting some help with my pain. I am sure being in pain and all the stress broke down my immune system leaving me with this infection.( oh and this is supposed to be a top hospital it doesn't even have wifi WTh )

I have decied to sue my plastic surgeon after...

I have decied to sue my plastic surgeon after having been lied t and given half truths and my third surgery in a month enough is enough Dr Oren Z Lerman was the attending and never gave me enough pain medication causing my vomitiing and me to pop my stitch and nw I have an infection and no belly button and I look pregnant I can't take it anymore. They said they wuld revise but I don't want them touching me after this. I was better off with my hanging belly

Well I am still having issues. I feel a lot of...

Well I am still having issues. I feel a lot of tightness in my upper stomach. I feel like it's always pulling I get tight and still have swelling. I am going to stick with my doctor and hope they can fix this. I am so frustrated by the whole process. I still have no belly button. I wish I never had the abdominoplasty my breasts look amazing but, I think the implants are starting to drop below the breasts.... I don't even know what to say anymore. I just broke up with the doctor I was seeing so I don't have the medical advice anymore about the whole situation so I need to go back and see my surgeon for follow up. I don't know what to say except I am just annoyed and wants honest awnsers and the whole thing fixed!!

I figured would let you all know things are still...

I figured would let you all know things are still not better. I am so beyond frustrated. I ended up feeling really upset about it all and gained the 40 lbs I lost. I can't believe this all happened
Dr. Thanick

Dr. T spent 2 hours with my our first appt. going over everything and taking measurement. He made me feel sooo comfortable. I had complications after and he was on top of everything. I was not able to get to the hospital he worked at nd he called several times a day to check on me, He has the best bedside manner I have ever seen,and his surgical skills are amazing thin low incisions
