Hey, just wondering how you are doing now?

My day four postop was my meltdown day. I cried that entire day! It did get better - slowly - each day after that tho. As for showering I did that sitting down and with the help of my husband each day for at least the first 7 to 8 days. I used to feel exhausted afterwards as holding myself upright - albeit in a seated position - without my binder on was just such an effort. Felt so vulnerable. I didn't start to stand straighter until about day 10. And I've read posts on here where some have done so literally straight away and others have taken longer. I don't know why on that - just seems everyone is different. Keep your chin up. You are VERY early days. Take it hour by hour right now. You're just about to start feeling better over the coming days - promise!

I'm scheduled for 12/19 for a mommy makeover--TT, lipo, BA. So going through the same thing, emotions running from excitement to panic, from guilt for spending the money on myself, disappointed for doing it this way versus dieting and exercising. But I was watching the Oprah show yesterday about positive energy and positive thoughts. They say to think about the positive results that you want, imagine the way you're going to look and impact its going to have your your well being and ONLY PUT POSITIVE ENERGY into the universe and that's what you'll get back. So, since then I'm only thinking about getting great results, a speedy and minimal pain recovery and being able to wear my clothes without bulges. Wishing you all the same!!!

I was completely petrified of dying on the table having never had surgery before. You have to put your trust in the professionals you chose and also look at statistics such as ho dangerous it is every time yu go out in a car - more likely to due from that than surgery! I'm only four days post op but already feeling pleased I braved up and went through with it.

How did you actully lay on table without freaking out?

That was the weirdest thing I don't remember getting onto the table at all. The surgeons are used to the natural fear and anxiety that goes with entering an OR. I was waiting in a room and had been out in my robe and marked up. I had taken a Xanax the night before to help me sleep and calm me. Forty mins before surgery they gave me a Valium. I remember a nurse walking me to the OR, telling me it was going to be cold in there and that they were going to remove my robe and wash me with earm water as I stood there. I remember that - vaguely. And kind of remember them saying about getting onto the table so they could hook me up to monitors but that's it. I in no way felt how I thought I would. I was calm and the people there were wonderful - as I'm sure yours will be. I promise you it won't be as you imagine in terms of feeling the fear.

Hi MomyTom, welcome to the site. Be careful it can get addictive!!! LOL I'm scheduled to have my TT w Lipo on 12/18 we are in the same boat. My PS told me at a MINIMUM I'd need 2 weeks off, if I have a desk job I could consider going back after that. I'm actually taking off 3 weeks to be on the safe side. As I can see from other posts here it's when you start moving around and getting active is when you begin to swell really badly. We just might be recovery buddies. : ) Wishing you the best of luck.
