I am a mother of two and grandmother. I am 44 years old. When my daughter was born, I weighed 120 before pregnancy and 175 during. I lost alot of the weight but I weighed 140 for a long time. I am 5' tall. My skin got stretched (well everything got stretched).
I work out and no matter how hard I try the "ick" is still there. I tried really hard one year and I looked better than ever but I still had the wrinkles and the jelly belly..
I am having a breast lift and TT and I can't wait. This site has been a god send.

Day three. I am feeling really good. Pain pump...

I have slept in bed since night two and that hasn't been so bad. Well the guest bed because ours is too high.
I am still taking the Arnica and Bromelain. I can't say if it worked but I had minimal swelling and bruising. Bruising from lipo almost gone BUT he only took out 200 ccs so I think that matters.
Ibuprofen might also be helping because it is an anti-inflamatory
So yesterday's day out was successful. My left drain put out 10ccs in a twelve hour period but the right one is still pumping 30-40 in a 12 hour period. I was hoping to get them out tomorrow so I don't have to figure out how to hide them at work tomorrow.
As of yesterday (day four) I had also gained three pounds so maybe there is more swelling than I think. But also on day four I was able to poop. Smoothly on day five as well. I have been using a women's laxative once a day they are usually pink, along with two vegatable laxatives (I think it is the generic of the Senot at rite aid. Anyways I feel much better in that respect.
I am tired of the chair so I am having my DH pack it up and send it back to mom's. I am on the couch today. It is much easier to get up from the couch. If your recliner has a handle forget it.
My son hasn't been to see me yet. His reply was "it wasn't a real operation, you chose to have it.". Well hmmpf. He is young but I miss my grandson it's been a week (LOL).
Ok so back to work tomorrow 1/2 time I think. Maybe 10-3. I sit all day so I think if I have a stool I will be okay. (Bringing heating pad).
I used an ice pack last night on my core (over two layers of shirts). It felt soooo good, wait it felt amazing and then I read you shouldn't use one. Uggh. Well I read you shouldn't use a heating pad either but I use it on my back so there should be no worries.
Enough for day 5 happy healing ladies.
One week update. I went back to the Dr. and my...
