I just turned 40 and decided to finally have a TT as a birthday gift
I just turned 40 and decided to finally have a TT as a birthday gift. I'm a mother of two, 9 and 11 years old. I gained a lot of weight on both pregnancies. I lost all the pounds I`ve gained, but couln't get rid of the extra fat on my belly and my thighs. I don't recognized myself in the mirror and always wanted to have the surgery, but was afraid. Now, I`m having it and I am sooo excited. I
Two days pos op
It has been two days now and ny feelings are all mixed up, I am in a lot of pain, i guess is because of a coughing that is persisting this morning and I feel awful. My hubby has been a real angel, by my side and restless. I am taking my pain killers and antibiotic, but the coughing hurts a lot. I haven't seen myself without the garment yet, but my doctor said that it looks great and she took it of almost 3 lbs of fat out of my thighs and 1 lbs of skin of my belly. My eyelids are very swollen and red, tomorrow I'll go for my 1st review. I hope to take some pics, so I can post to you guys.
Emotional roller coaster, 4 days po
Today my back is just killing me, I guess I under estimate this surgery recovery...I am trying to figure it out how I will manage to stay sitting and watching life around me. I am a very active person and I'm feeling helpless, cryied a lot this morning but now, after a good shower I am in less pain. It's going to be a loooong Sunday....It's beautiful out there, sunny and warm...
Feeling better each day!
I'm feeling much better today, off of pain meds, still taking the antibiotic twice a day, will keep taking until Thursday, day that doc will start taking of belly stiches. Today is a cold day here in Rio de Janeiro, our winter is very mild, but I don't like it anyways. I don't know if I mentioned before, but here in Brazil, the surgeons made us wear a contetion board inside the CG, it's a hard board that doesn't allowed the stomach to fold, helping the healing process. But it is soooo unconfortable!
I can't stand up straight yet, so my back hurts a lot. I'm wondering when I'll be able to do it.
I hope you all are doing great and healing well!
PO Anatomical Boards
Dear tt friends,
I mentioned to some of you that my dr made me wear a contention board inside my CG for at least 15 days po. She says that after her patientesstart wearing these, se never had a seroma case anymore. She is a very experienced ps and I trust her very much. I am wearing the board on my tummy and on my outter thighs, were I had 1.5 lts of fat liposucked. Because of the boards I have minimal bruising and pain on the area, so I recommend to all of you. Feels like a cast, that holds my tummy in place, doens't allowed to fold. I guess that makes me feel secure. I'm on the 10th day po, so I got use to it, I only had the drain for 24 hours. Happy healing to all of you!
Nice Sunday! 11th day post op
It gets better each day. My tummy is swelling as expected as well as my thighs. I guess my incision and bb look all right but I can wait to see the final results. Today I took some more pics. Happy healing to you all!
