Day 1 post op

I Woke up! That was one thing I worried about! Pain is not so bad I can handle it, got light headed getting out of bed. The binder is so tight I can't even breath. I had to ask on of the nurse to release it a bit but for some reason it keep going down every time I lay back down. Got out of bed twice today for lunch and dinner, not eating as much, my blood pressure is low so I have to drink a lot of water! Did someone say cough hurt so bad!

Hey I'm 8 days post op. swelling still bad mostly in hips had some lipo done on them. Back and butt pain worse than tummy pain. I hired a hospital style remote bed once I spent a night trying to sleep in lounge chair $50 a week that's nothing made a big difference.

Don't worry, I have little kids too, youngest is only 1!! I'm not gonna lie, it isn't easy but you will get thru this. Don't hold back on asking for help from friends/family, your recovery depends on it. Congrats, and enjoy lazing around watching tv for the next couple of days :)
