11 weeks post-op scar & belly button pic. & has anyone experience Pain in Pubic Area like pinching, stabbing, needles tingling

Hello, I am 32 years old, I have 2 children 13...

Hello, I am 32 years old, I have 2 children 13 years old and a 6 years old I'm scheduled for TT w/flanks lipo and hernia repair on June 13.
i'm so so scared, nervous and have anxiety! I know this will be worth it. i decide to have tummy tuck about 2 month now. Dr T was the first consultation i did for tummy tuck and i like him i took 100 questions with me i didn't get to ask him any because he answer all of them before i even ask. my fiance said take your time do other consultation before you decide i told him his the one. before i went to consultation i did my home work i check him out and i love his work. I told my parents about this they said i'm crazy not to do it so now i'm hiding it from them it told them I'm having a hernia repair they will freak out if they find out my parents don't believe on having plastic surgery. then i told my fiance he said i'm crazy too...to do some crunch and that will do it. he don't see anything wrong with my stomach he still don't want me to get it but i already decide and i told him i need his support i have to tell him the truth because i'm need him to take a few days off to take care me. It's just 1 week away I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for the pain i don't have no pain tolerances. so decide to joint real self so i can have some support I'm gonna need it since i can't tell none of my family member they all think I'm just getting a hernia repair.

Thank you so much ladies this mean a lot to me. One week from now is my big day and I'm ready but I'm so scared, anxious, nervous I was hoping to get some comfort from my fiancé but his worse than me his freaking out too. I am having mixed emotions now. Did I make the right decision but at the same time I have high confident and trust my PS His very knowledgeable that put me at ease a little :) and he comes off as a skilled, technical and confident surgeon that why I pick him and I liked his before and after pictures patients that I seen.

Hi Nayd. You must be so excited to get this done. Your family will probably come around once they see how amazing you look and how happy you will be. Sounds like you picked a very good ps. I wish you the best of luck. I'm 11 wks post and had a BR as well.

I had my tt done this past wednesday and all I can say is I am so glad it is over with. Don't be like me and keep reading more and more on the internet (I was even looking for the horror stories) all it did was get me more worried for no reason at all. Once they knock you out you have no idea what is going on until you wake up, pain when I woke up was not so bad the anethesia will stay with you for about the first 12-24 hours and you will be so thankful because when it wears off OMG. I had issues with going to the bathroom so I have a cathetar in, which is a relief to be able to empty my bladder. It will come out monday (I had it for 4 days). Make sure you have someone with you at all times for the first week or so because I am at day 4 post op and still cannot do anything on my own. Im having my 9 year old pull in out of my recliner and lower me back into it. Also dont think your going to play brave one and skip any of your pain pills, I did it and so not worth it, it takes a good 12 hours to get back on track. I would have to agree with everyone and say the drains are defeinitly what hurt the most, I can't wait till they come out, although it seems my PS keeps them in longer saying one comes out at a week the other at 2 weeks. I too was suppose to have my surgery the 13th, but was able to move it to the 6th as I thought more time with the kids still in school. You will do great and we will all be thinking of you come this wednesday!!!!

OMG, my sister in law kept yelling at me telling me to get off the internet, "why would I want to watch and see exactly what they were going to do to me?" I was watching the graphic surgery videos and everything. Really you need to STAY AWAY from that, the less you know about what is actually happening the better you are. I am almost at a week post op and really the surgery, no big deal. I am such a over worrier so for me to say that was the easy part, it really is. The recovery has its ups and downs, but with each day the pain gets less and less and you stand straighter and straigher and begin to realize why you did this in the first place. And believe me two months from now when you are wearing a bikini or a tight fitting shirt and totally rocking it you are not going to remember any pain. Good luck and keep us all posted!!

Hi Nayd. Hope you are able to rest. When you get to the point of trying to get out of bed on your own...grab the back of your knee with one arm and use your leg strength to assist you. Use the other arm to push off. Works for me. I still do this to get out of bed. Take it easy.

1 Weeks Post op recovering is excellent

Im not felling any pain I'm bless the only thing I'm felling is soreness on my flanks from the lipo that it.
I was incredibly nervous about having this elective procedure, but I am so thankful I had it done and would do it again in a heartbeat. My stomach looks incredible. I would do my best to updated pic. ounce a week.
Over all i would say my experience has been great and i have a great support system here at real self.
I do not regret my decision My tummy tuck was the best thing I ever did for myself!
I hope this has been helpful. Dont be afraid like I was. DO IT! Take back your body (ladies or men ).

Good luck!

I'm still sleeping on my back I went back to work this Monday I do desk job and my back Is killing me by the time I get off work at 5pm. when I get home I can't not do anything but to get on my bed and all I want to do it's scream this back pain are no joke Dr T. said I may fell that back pain for the next 3 to 4 weeks to take the valium when I get home it will help with the back pain he said it's because of all the skin stretching he did and the more I'm trying to walk straight the more my back will hurt I'm almost walking straight right now. And he said my belly button look good I didn't take pic. Of my belly button I'll do that next week. Someone ask me to get a closer pic. Of my scar that how close I got I hope that help.

I saw PS DR T. last Thursday my belly button was looking perfect I was in love two days later this think on the right side start growing its beige stuff coming out of it I'm freaking out my fiancé think it's infected he think I should have been covering it they never told me to cover it when I take shower. My PS he did told me last week he wasn't going to be there this week his traveling to contact his assistant if I need to come in or anything I just call she's out too today now I'm here freaking out I did spoke to her Monday she ask me to put gauze on top of it that what I been doing but I'm not seeing any change. Now let’s go on my left flanks it refused to go down it seen like it's the only place still swelling since my surgery but I’m so worry about my belly button I don't even care about my left flanks right now. I forgot to mention the only think I'm using right now it's vitamin E and I was putting it on my belly button so that may cause whatever it's happening right now. I knew everything was going to perfect on a good side I weight myself this morning I lost 15 pound since the surgery.

But she still want me to come back Tuesday my PS will be there so he can check it out too. So for now she said just keep the gauze on I'll give you updated Tuesday once I leave the office.

11 weeks post- opt today everything is going well...

11 weeks post- opt today everything is going well but this past 5 days I been feeling stabbing and pinching pain in the pubic area it's very painful it hurts like hell all I want to do is scream the pain come and goes away I may feel it every 20 or 30 minutes for like a minute. I am experiencing extreme sensitivity, burning, shocking feelings throughout my pubic area. I don't know how to calm it. I call my PS they told me it's nothing I can do what I describe is very normal and typically the discomfort will resolve that region is very tender. It's the nerves repairing and becoming accustomed to their new positions. And it's indication that nerves are intact or growing back and When it wakes up you feel that pins and needles tingling sensation. Is there anything I can do to ease these feelings?

Washington DC Plastic Surgeon

A have an excellent PS DR. TALLELBAUM you the best right After my surgery he came to check on me and maybe 2 hours after i got home he call me to see how I'm doing and if i have any questions he goes extra miles. And my nurse her name is HOPE she's the best i will give her a 10*star she take such a good care of me. DR Tattlelbaum was professional, kind, and informative. He was extremely sensitive to me i didn't express how scared i was but he knew i was scared he comfort me. He works in a beautiful and clean office. The entire staff they very nice and amazing! I can only say good things about Dr T. He is a very honest and is truely skilled he give me my body back. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure, the risks along with the benefits and gave me realistic expectations that I feel were fully met. I am so glad that I choose this Doctor. And i will come back for my breast reduction and lift :)
