I had TT and BA with dr. Decherd 9/17/13. So I'm a week ahead of you. So far I love how low the incision on the TT!!! I was really worried about that. Boobs are still really high and swollen. Went with 421cc. 5" 130lbs. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids.watch out for back pain day starting day 4, heat pad has helped a bunch.

day 3

Im so sore and frustrated I its not to much the painbits not being able to move alot gosh i really want to walk around and move straight around my home..patience is all I need hopefully time will fly fast
You look awesome!!! Just saw him yesterday and had drains removed and given ok to massage. I know how you feel about walking around hunched over. I'm trying to be patient myself. I noticed if you keep swelling down, it's a little easier to walk straight. First week is the hardiest, you're almost over the hump! Once they remove you're drains you'll feel a lot better.

Thanks berns0523 im trying to be as patient as I can im glad your feeling better let me know how you continue to progress best wishes!!

It is aggravating at first, for sure! It also hit me at day 3 that I had "really" gone through with it, and everything I was feeling was very real. I just took my meds on schedule and slept when I could. We heal the most when we rest, so don't be afraid to sleep when you are tired. I asked my doc if I was supposed to be trying to stand up straight, and he said absolutely not- and that when I was healed enough to stand up straight then my body would naturally know it. So I was hunched for 3 and a half weeks, and sometimes when I come home from work in the evening I am curled over a little. I'll be watching for your updates and thinking of you, sis!

day 4

Well last night I took my meds for pain and to sleep so I slept throuh out the night but when I woke up this morning boy was I sore I took my meds right away and once again in lala land lol..Also yesterday I started feeling the upper part of my left leg a burning sensation when I would move or stretch it they did an ultrasound yesterday and no blood clots thank god I think its probably just the nerves but it really burns when I walk :\

One drain out one to go! I know what u mean about the pain with them drains! I had 4 no good lol your tummy and boobs look good already! How many cc's did you get? Its good reading about ur story cuz we are about the same size and my body was similar to ur pre op also. When I 1st started my blog there was noone around my size nor had the same or close to body type. If you ever have any questions shoot me a comment or message. Keep us updated and take it ez....don't be cleaning to much now hehehe

Happy healing everyone I will post pics soon (:
Your stomach looks better. You should have left your breasts alone! They were perfect. They look like they are going to explode. Now they can't move naturally.

Takenitlight, you are out of line. Those kind of opinions on this site are completely unnecessary. Really uncalled for to attack a women who is healing. She is beautiful, very bit of her.
