I hope by the end of all this I will be able to...
I'm starting to get nervous, but I have an amazing husband who is taking time off work to help me out.
I will try upload some before pictures soon!
One day post op
I have one drain in. Right now 2 of the lipo incisions and bleeding/oozing a good amount so it was a long night changing the gauze and maxi pads I had put against them.
My pain level is tolerable with the meds. My back is the most painful thing from the lipo.i didn't even know he was going to do lipo on my back, I thought just love handles and abdomen, but I'm happy he did!
I don't have a binder on yet. That will go in at my post op appt on Tuesday. They want me to shower Saturday and remove all bandages. I will probably cover my incision with tape after that.
I'm rambling I know. My kids have been sweet bringing me flowers and occasional piece of toast.but my husband has been soooo helpful and supportive. He has dealt with all my bloody yucky stuff that makes me lightheaded.
Ok well I added a pic of before and about 4 hours after surgery. I know I will be swelling up soon like crazy but I want to get a pic right away. My scar is still covered though so I haven't seen the whole thing
Dr Terranova is amazing! He let me know what to expect realistically. Wasn't just trying to earn a $. He has been calling my husband to check up on me and I feel like he really cares about his patients. Also his office staff is so sweet. The anesthialogist (sp?) put me in ease as I was so scared walking into that room.def recommend him to anyone. I'm one day post op right now
