worth every penny - New Brunswick, NJ

I think I went into this in a little denial about how long the recovery would be. But I am an impatient person and my husband is constantly reminding me of how little time 2 months really is ;)

My surgeon was amazing. My results are amazing and I am only 5 weeks out. The day after was painful but then every day was a big step forward, by day 4 I was on advil only. It was very much worth it.

The limitations in the recovery are frustrating but they will produce the best results so I try to focus on the big picture.

Hi Molly..you look GREAT. Its so nice to see someone on here that lives in my area that has had this done. I live in Somerset and I'll be 3wks PO tomorrow. I was also in denial prior to my surgery, but after watching tons of youtube videos...my eyes were wide open. But I still have to remind myself to slow down. Keep us posted on your progress.

how long did it take u to walk up straight? im on my forth day recovery I still cant stand up straight im very impatient too...

I could not stand up straight for about 3 weeks - it was progressive though and my doctor said to listen to my body. Every day had a little improvement. Just this week (week 5), I can actually stretch out my legs straight while lying in bed - it might be a little mental but I didn't like the tug on the incision. I just let my body dictate it - even now, if I am tired, I get a little hunched over - just a little. I wouldn't push it at all. You want that tightness.

You have got to be feeling so much better about your belly now. I really think that you look awesome for being just 3 weeks out. I hope that I will look that good. And if you're swelled in that photo, just think about how fabulous you're going to look in say another 3 weeks :)
