7 Days Post Op
This site has been so helpful during my journey so I wanted to share my experience in hopes that I can be of help to others.
My insurance approved me for hernia and muscle repair so I opted to pay extra for the “tummy tuck” portion of the surgery. The only downfall to this was that I was limited to my choice of Plastic Surgeons. I had several consultations with many doctors and while I am happy with my choice I can’t honestly say I would have chosen him if I could have picked from all of them out there.
So far things have been good and uneventful, but I am really concerned with my bunched up and pleated scar. I know it is too early to see the true outcome, but I don’t see anyone else on here with a scar similar to mine. I also think my bellybutton is kind of low.
I am trying not to be so negative, but I was supposed to have a post-op appointment today but it was cancelled at the last minute due to an unexpected emergency. I was really hoping to get one or both of these stupid drains removed and now I have to wait until Monday. Grrrr….

I really miss picking up my 22 month old son. This whole experience has been such an emotional roller coaster ride. I think that once these drains are out I will feel somewhat normal again. These things are so annoying and they keep pulling and tugging on my skin... ouch! Hopefully tomorrow one or both can be removed. Fingers crossed.... I'm going to try and take some new pics either today or tomorrow.

I decided on Dr. Myckatin after four consults with other surgeons. I am still in the healing phase so I think it is really too early to give him a true rating. I will re-evaluate and update this with more details as time goes by.
