Hello everyone. I'm 37, 5'6" tall and 131 lbs. I am 3 days PO right now and doing ok.
I'll have my first PO appointment with my PS today at 2:00.

I've read lots of stories on here before having my TT with MR and BA but never found one like my PS does. He uses no drains, no CG and I have a "pain pump" that actually pumps local anasthetic to my incision sites. So far this has all worked out great.

I had silicone implants put above the muscle and I don't feel much pain with my BA at all.
I'll post pre-op and Post-op pictures tomorrow.

My first post-op apt went great. They removed the anasthetic pump which didn't hurt at all. I can now take showers and I have to get a spanx type garment to wear for the next week. My next apt is Friday, June 22, 2012.

5 days PO- I'm feeling well today. I'm swollen and bruised, my skin is hard near the scar but seems to be losening up. I can't stand straight yet. If any others had their TT/MR without drains, please let me know. I have questions. Thanks!

So, I have this big "air bubble" under my skin, when I tap it, it sounds hallow. Its under my bra line on my upper stomach. It's worrying me some. My next appointment isn't until Friday. I think I'll call my PS office tomorrow to ask about it.

I'm also having an emotional day, I feel like Frankenstein. I look in the mirror and see myself pieced back together and wonder if I should have done this. My boobs seem huge, they are hard and make my nipples look huge. I have a huge scar all the way across me that is stitched up and red and swollen and I can't imagine it ever looking good. I tried on some of my panties today and they don't cover the scar. It made me cry.... which hurts. UGH

I added a few more pictures. I still can't stand up straight so I'm hunched over. It's been great not having to deal with dranins. I do have to wear a "spanx" now so that is a pain but better than the CG I see others have to deal with. I'm really scared I won't feel good enough to go back to work in a week.

Today is 5 weeks since surgery. I'm still swelling of course but no major issues to complain about. I sit at a computer for work but still swell as the day goes on. I'm wearing a spanx type garment daily and it helps as does massage. My incision is healed and I was completely released last week. I go back in October for a check up. I'm posting 4 week pictures.

My tummy is pretty great, my breasts I'm not loving. They are way too big. I really hope they get smaller, if not, I might have them removed and put smaller in. Right now I'm a 34 DD. I hate how clothes fit around them, the shirts bunch up in my arm pit area above where my boobs start. It's awful. I get so depressed when trying on clothes.
