Survived week 1
Feeling better drained tubes out!! Now to get back to normal :(
11 days oh my!
Well today I'm 11 days post. Feeling better everyday, still sleeping in a recliner, but I can move more just with cautious...slow ;) I'm not in pain, just have so much tension in my lower back. Here are some pics from pre TT and 6 days post :)
15 days post
Well today I traveled back to OKC to see my ps, to remove first tape and apply silicone tape. He said I was healing great and I'm doing really good at 2 weeks post. Everyday I'm getting stronger but so ready to be back to myself. I'm still walking a little hunched :/ and I'm still swollen but feeling good. Get tired easily which I hate but that may be from this Texas heat and still not being full speed. So I'm still resting when my body says so.
I'm ready to be 100%-18 days post
Well yesterday I did some school shopping, got home was swollen and just flat out tired. Still walking abit hunched over, and started super itchy lastnight. Nothing and little bit of aloe can't fix. Woke up this morning feeling better :)
Silicone Tape----19 days :)
Today has been a good day.! Church, quick shopping, and lunch with minimum swelling!!! Took my original tape off and applied silicone tape on, my doctor high suggested it! Apply for 12 hours daily, don't sleep with it. Also sleeping in my bed tonight with the husband, oh how I've missed my bed, but so secure in my recliner :/ well I'll let you know how it goes soon :) happy healing!!
Almost 4 weeks...yaay
It gets better everyday!! I'm super excited about my progress, I am almost standing straight up, sleeping in my bed, and moving around at a normal pace. My scar is healing nicely, scabs are coming off softly, and itching is minimal. I continue to wear my binder, but finding myself talking it off more..need to invest in some spanx :) swelling is still there :/ cannot still fit in pre surgery jeans :( my ps doesn't want anything tight around my incision so it doesn't rub, I can handle a couple of weeks more. Well happy healing y'all!
A little over 5 weeks :))
I am starting to feel normal again. Got in "regular pre clothes", yaay!!! I am wearing binder less and loving it. I continue to wear my silicone tape. I do feel swollen still but not as bad :) anyone know when is best to swim?
One week later @ 7 weeks :) workout
Well everything is feeling better but wouldn't say 100% yet :/ what a recovery process... But totally worth it. Started back working out... Kinda lets just say treadmill and bike.. 3.5 miles at an easy pace. I'm back in some pre surgery clothes, still wearing my silicone tape, actually driving to Okc for my last appointment. I will share tomorrow on what is said :)))
