Great tummy tuck experience so far

I've spent some time freaking out and crying today. These posts have been very helpful and my biggest take away is that if I keep off of my feet (only walking around house for movement purpose) then I should be ok! I have my hubby, nanny and mom helping me for a few weeks so I feel very blessed. A lot of you brave women have tackled this process with minimal help-god bless!

2 days post op. feeling good walking around the house and bedroom a little bit. Did some stairs today at recovery center. I recommend not going home after because hospital bed and calm atmosphere are a must!! Still haven't seen anything other than the gross drains. Goal today is to pass gas bubbles so I'm more comfortable. Lots of sleep helps too!

Really struggling with lack of bowel movement and gas. I just won't that part over with! Day5!!!

Day 9- I got my last drain out today! Yea! I have a new pic to post as well. My incision is very straight and small. I'm so happy with my PS. Their staff has been awesome too. The nurses call or text me daily for check in. I feel a bit swollen and jiggly inside. PS told me to really take it easy this next week to keep swelling down. We will see how it goes!

Day 11- for some recent I'm feeling really sore today. Muscles seem extra tight. Not sleeping too well at night. I just can't get comfortable. Still pleased with flat tummy when I see my reflection:)

Today is 14 days post op. feeling good today. Doctor appointment went amazing. No fluid and limited swelling- he can't believe how well I'm doing. I saw photo of op table with all of the skin and fat on it- so gross but truly amazing. I'm so grateful for my doc and his staff. My stitches are doing well so far and I can't get over how thin my scar is for how huge I was.

Can't believe it is almost 3 weeks post op! I'm feeling like I'm getting back to normal but still idea of bending over to pick something off of the floor is hard. I'm not cleared yet to drive or walk around too much. I've definitely been enjoying this holiday season relaxing for once. My tummy isn't even swollen. Just really sore from the tightening of the upper abdominal muscles by 4 inches!

Amazing appt with my PS today. I'm 3 weeks post op and loving it. He can't believe I have very minimal swelling(only in pubic area- weird). My incision line is healing great and is very thin considering how much he cut off. I can't even post the picture he took- it's sooo gross. It weighed 5 lbs!! I was one of his biggest patients! My upper muscle repair is still really sore to laugh, initial stand up and going to the bathroom. Other than that, this has been better than expected! Cheers and best wishes to all of you

6 weeks out and I'm doing well. I got cleared to exercise lightly but no abdominal work yet. I had 4 inches of muscles tightened. I saw a part of my scar where the tape came off and my stitches have dissolved and it looks amazing. Like a pink scratch. No puffing or pulling or marks. Crazy amazing. My PS is the best. I love his staff and him so much. They make me feel like the best patient in the world.

I found Dr Kaidi through seeing multiple scars on other people - his were gorgeous( as far as tummy tucks go). He is who other doctors would choose to do themselves!
