Made It to the Flat Side - Pennsylvania, PA
Hello ladies. I've been lurking for awhile. Had...
My upper abs are very, very sore. However, i dont feel anything by the incision site due to the anesthetic the dr injected directly into my abs before he closed. He said that should last 3 days :)
I did feel a little dizzy post op, which resolved when i stood up. Not too much of an appetite, but im eating crackers with my meds. Im trying to get up and walk every 2 hours which hasnt been that bad.
I ended up with 3 drains which i guess im supposed to feel bummed about but they havent bothered me yet so its too hard to tell.
Ill post pics later. Time to nap!
6 days post op
On day 5, i had to go with a family member to the ER (for an issue with them, not me). This kind of forced me to be more active. It was extremely exhausting, and i thought i'd be paying for it today, but oddly, i feel much better today than i have since sx.
I still have all 3 drains, but will hopefully get one out on fri and the other two on mon and Tuesday. That will be a relief as the hole where the drains exit from are getting irritated. The scar looks fine so far, as does the belly button. My lower stomach is swollen. i wear my binder 24/7. Not sure if i'm wearing it as tight as i should, but i'll ask on Friday if i need to cinch it tighter.
i promise to post pics soon1
1 month post-op
I still get tired at the end of the day, but no biggie. I feel like I want to be more active, but don't want to push it. I go for long walks, have carried grocery bags, etc, but nothing strenuous. Two more week till I see my PS again (haven't seen him since week 2), so i'll ask then if I can do more.
no one's noticed my TT yet, but I've had a few ask if I got my breasts done, which I didn't. Anyone else have that issue?
