TT and Robotic Hysterectomy! - Texas, TX Update !!!

Hello all !!! I'm a 31 year old mother of two...

Hello all !!! I'm a 31 year old mother of two beautiful boys !!!! 8 yrs and 6 years old.... I am so nervous I am going to get a tummy tuck and Robotic hysterectomy on Dec 14!!!! I love reading all the post on here and decided to write he as well in case of questions and for support. I am in good shape and last year complete p90x two rounds, no matter how much I worked out I was unable to make my tummy tight and the stretch marks drove me crazy !!! I am also in college full time so this past year I've slacked on the workouts, and gained a few pounds in hope my PS could remove a few more of the stretch marks. I understand that the ones above the bell can't be removed but hopefully they will be pulled tighter. I had a mastopexy and augmentation in 2009 and love the "girls" . I'm hoping I will feel confident enough to wear a bikini afterwards and can't wait to hit the gym again and get back in shape . Any tips as I prepare for surgery would be great !,, any recommendations on scar creams / binders would help! Also how does everyone feel about arcida Montana ?? Or increases protein to help the healing process???

Hello , yes I saw my doctor yesterday he had to aspirate 75 cc of fluid wants to see me back Thursday. :-(. When I left the hospital he doesn't place you in a compression garment for about a week. I got mine a week later & have worn it 24/7 !!!!! I had my first drain removed 13 days & second 19 days after surgery. have any of y'all had the feeling if cool / warm sensation on your tummy ? Kinda like its running down on the inside ? This only happens on my right side & I'm not sure if its nerves or fluid ? I don't seem to have any other fluid build up other than below my incision . ..... I will try to post pictures .... And edit a few to decrease nudity ....

Oh and my Dr. has me on Arnica Montana too. I am scheduled for a revision this Friday (OMG) and I am already taking it. I think it probably helps mostly with the Lipo part. I didn't get that last time but I am getting it this time so I am definitely going to take it. I don't think most people would know what its like without it if the doctor prescribes it but I am going to use it in hopes that it does help especially since I am an easy bruiser.

Hey girl, I had a similar procedure done. I had a TT with abdominal hyst and some bladder procedures all at once. I don't think its normal for you to have all that fluid you mentioned. Probably got drains out too soon or maybe you weren't wearing your CG consistently? Hopefully your PS was able to aspirate some of that fluid out and get you back on track. You looked good in your PO pics on your question. You should put your pics on this review. Happy healing!

How did your surgery go? I saw you posted a question for the PS's on the site. did you figure out how to post pics on your profile? There should be the option at the bottom of your screen. Hope all is going well!
