I'm a mother of 5 beautiful kids, ages 18,13,11,2 and 5 months, all delivered via c-section. I was left with extra skin which makes my belly look horrible. I'm very nervous but more excited about getting it done. Can't Wait!

I did it. I went in Tuesday very calmed. I woke up feeling very sore and drowsy. Just like everybody said. It feels like you get run over by a big truck. Personally I think a c-section hurts more then a tt. I've had 5 so, I would definetely say c-section. TT you feel more a tightness and soreness that doesn't relieve to easy. The belly it self looks great. I have swelling and still can't stand straight.

Lol!! hopefully soon. Does anyone have medication tips for constipation? and foods to avoid. Thanks everyone. :)

13 days since Tummy tuck. I saw my Doctor yesterday and he finally removed the 2nd drain... thank goodness.. It was such a pain. Today I'm just waiting for the small incision to close and by Tomorromy I should be able to get a full shower... can't wait. I have to admit the incision itself never really hurted. The only thing that bothers me is the soreness from the drains (the tiny incisons) I am now off the pain med and feeling better.
I can't stand straight yet. Any ideas what I can do?

6 weeks Post OP ---- Well, I'm a little dissapointed with my results. yet, it's only been 6 weeks. I will be patient and wait to see what my final results are. I have a small pertruding upper belly. Dr. called it omentum. Don't know what to think yet... Overall I'm happy. I no longer carry the extra belly skin. I will try to post pic's.
