I had a Tummy tuck done Jan. 20th. My Dr. took one of my drainage tubes out the first week, then then next week he took the other tube out and my stitches from my belly botton.
Ijust started wearing a full girdal that hooks up all the way up to my bra. I have been putting vit.E oil on my scars. It still burns, hurts and itches. Since I have stitches almost all the way to my spine. I can only sleep a few hours at a time and on my back. My future husband loves the new look but I have had a hard time eating because my tummy always feels full...which is a good thing! The only thing that is bothering me is the lower part is really puffy. I'm hoping this will go down because it looks very weird . The Dr looked at it and told me to make sure it is wrapped so the swelling will go dowm. Before I had a Tummy Tuck I thought it would only take a few days to heal...boy was I wrong. I am getting Married May 28th 2011 so I hope I feel great by then. The Dr. told me I have to wait 6 weeks before I start long walks. I hope that helps.
I forgot to tell you why I wanted this done. I had two Nine pound babies and I am only 5'1" and I was 65 pounds heavier than I am now and I was just sick of being able to grab a handful of skin that the Dr said would never just go away since the skin was so stretched.
