The Belly I've Always Wanted - Orlando, FL

I've been wanting to have this procedure done...

I've been wanting to have this procedure done for the longest time and finally, IT'S DONE. I got my TT on the 20th and I thought it was going to be much worse than it actually was. Yesterday I felt horrible because of the nausea but today I feel like a new person. I was able to take a shower and oh you ladies were all right on how good it would feel. I am extremely bent over but the little peek at my stomach made it all worth while. Even though I still have a lot of swelling and some bruising I am so happy that I did it. I'll try and keep everyone upto date with new photos as the weeks go by. Thank you all for the advice and the blogs that are on this site. A special thanks to Nancy292 for answering my questions.

Thank you ladies for all the comments. I have my one week appt tomorrow and I believe I get one of my drains out. I feel great except for the fact that I can't stand up straight. I try to walk straight but it feels as if I'm gonna pop a stitch. Last night I tried to lean back in my recliner and I cried because I think I stretched to much and it felt like my stomach came apart. All day yesterday and Sunday I was basically crying not for bad reasons tho. Sunday and most of yesterday I was crying because I was watching something funny and everyone kept making things seem funnier than they actually were and I kept laughing and it hurt to laugh that I ended up crying.

So far so good tho. Yesterday was the first day that I didn't take any pills other than my antibiotics and my vita medica. I'm gonna try and go for a walk outside today and see how it goes. I'll take more pix tomorrow after my doctor's visit Again, thank you ladies for the support.

Well I had my 1 week follow-up today and the doc said I looked good. I have significant swelling but all in all I look good. The nurse took one of the drains out and it felt so weird. I have a video of it but I'm not gonna post it cause I don't want anyone getting sick on my account. LOL My next one comes out next week Can't wait. So far so good. I am SO GLAD I had the procedure done. Anyone considering it should. The first 3-5 days I think were the worse for me, now I just have to try and straighten myself up.

Here's my week 2 pic. As you can see my right side is starting to take shape but my left has an enormous amount of swelling. My scar seems to be coming along well but this garment is getting on my nerves. There are times when I want to rip it off and just go scratch crazy on my belly. Also, the top of my vajay jay is extremely swollen and hard. From what I've read on this site it seems to be normal but I'm gonna call the doc just to make sure. Oh yea can anyone please tell me when I'll be able to sleep normally on my bed? I've been sleeping on my recliner and tried to sleep on my bed but after 2 hours I had to go back to the recliner. Any suggestions?

Well, its officially 3 months later and I'm still happy with my decision. Only thing that has me concerened is that I seem to have some pudginess near the top of my belly and just overall swelling. Thought this would be gone by now but guess not.Other than that feeling great.
