I am a little scared of getting a tummy tuck. I am getting it done on December 21 because i am a teacher and i have vacation. I will be off until January 2.
I am going to have a few people over on christmas eve. I am wondering if I can just use the "hurt my back" on that day. how were you 3 day po?

Well the incision only drained for the first 2 days. and by the third it was almost completley closed. Now the first day I sat down on the toilette and was gushing blood like fluid... I almost passed out or was starting to.... I was white as a ghost I sat back down it the recliner and drank a little water a friend of mine fanned my face with a book. My mom was freeken!!! She called the doctors office they said all was normal. But that only lasted that first day, the next day is more of a blur really the first week was lol. I would be mid text and pass out on the second day. I still think you will be fine on the 3rd day

tomorrow, my tummy tuck is 3 weeks away. I am wondering how my recovery will be, since it is drain less tummy tuck. What should i eat the first few days? should i buy anything in particular? IM SO NERVOUS!
See under the real self logo it says forum? Go there and find December tummy Tucker's :) I forgot to ask but when he took off my tape it was so thin and pink and not crusty. But the area he left untaped looks horrid. Go to the forum there is so much help there
