Nobody can imagen how I really look like .I hate this jelly belly
I dont need anyones opinion and criticizing
My BIGGEST FEAR !!
one of my biggest fears is not to be able to workout regularly
I used to work out at least 6 tims a week and thats including body weights, pilatis , danc,zumba .I am totaly addicted to this and scared from the long recovery .but again flat belly worth even postponing activities we love the most !!!
In the last two weeks I started taking vitamins as Probiotic pills twice a day and zinc for better healing .plus v D concerning to my lab tests
My doc didn't recommend anything
So I made some research in e net and of course all your best advices my tt sisters !!!!! So thank you for this
I would love to hear about any recommendations from you ladies
Have a wonderful day everbody !!
I have purchased ernica tablets for better bruises healing as well
hay ladies those ones who work out more than regularly

In my dream I see my son's face and im thinking what am I doing !!!!! and I'm crying . Oh I wish time will move faster .its getting harder to wait

I feel pretty good .taking my pain meds every 3.5 to 4 hours although im not in pain so much I still take them just not to get to pain , it is a major surgery and the last thing we need is pain that can be prevented.
I take also antibiotics twice a day
And stool softener once a day .
I tell ya this stool softener really helped bc I pooped already yesturdsy
As soon as I arr home from hospital yay thats such a relief.
So I highly recommend TO START STOOL SOFTENER 1 DAY PRIORE SUR
I can also climb my house stairs since yesterday without problem atall
its 22 stairs from first floor to second floor where my bed room is
Tha only thing that's really upsets me is the hunched over position but thats how it is , doc wants me to walk hunched over for 10 days o-m-g !

That's sooo difficult to just lay down all day long
I have a 3 floors house and just going from kitchen to my room is climbg stairs so sometimes I have to climb few times a day but I can do it very easy now without breathing like im in marathon race....LOl..
Doc called up today sent him some pic and he said all looks good
I'm also not so hunched over anymore
I can almost stand straight up but not doing so cz im still afraid to ruin something. .
I stopped taking pain meds since yesterday and slept without them not the best sleep but still no pain
Got up today changed my pajamas to a nicer clothes put some victoria secrets body cream and decided I will have a good day today !!! So wishing you my rs friends the best day ever!!!
8 DAYS PO
It's the first time that I leave the house
all dressed up we had a good time Lol
Im not so hunched over unless im allready tired and my doc improved it
and told me to start walk straightas much as I can , but I'm afraid to do it I will give it few more days. also I can sleep with my body almost straight and that a big thing for me cz I been suffered at nights the most from my lower beck ... ..
So overall every thing is great I csnt wait to have my final results cz of course im swollen like everyone here
but for me it's not so terrible cz thet prevent people from asking questions
Here are some pic from my first hang out today with clothes on happy new year rs sisters ....and fast healing to all of you

I feel much better today .it is true what every one here says ... .every day you feel better and closer to healling hopefully ......
But today I over did it and now its pay time .....
felt good in the morning and very board so decided to go to the mall for some shopping .been there for 2 hours and than for some groceries ....
But as soon as I arr home all I could do
Was sitting in my bad .I was so hunched and hurt .it was so bed that I had to hold my belly although im wearing my cg and girdel at the same time 24/7 .....

Tomorrow I have 8 weeks po app with doc .....I will see if he clear me for scar treatment .I tried mederma but felt sore and I have silicon stripes. .....
I'm wearing my cg in the afternoons and all night but I do that just cuz I have this lump in right side and I think the cg is helping reduce it ...but other than that I dont need the cg anymore I feel verygood without it ..happy healing everyone x
long time since last updated
I was down for a long time and still am concerning lump (it might reduced a bit ) but im not flat and thats was all I wanted .doc insisted on waiting 1 more month to see if any change and if not I will see a surgeon for chack up. my concerned is that lump is not a hernia but either way I will probably need to have another surgury if it can be fixed and if not than I will be pissed of.
I know overall I look good and I'm beck to gym and resume all activities
but being flat was the goal .
I still wear my binder overnight just bcus I hop that would help with the lump and swelling .I have good days when my swell is minimal and some bad days looks prego
Weight 152 ish
I trust my doc 100%.I know i am In good hands. He has been very helpful and realistic with me. he is very professional and an expert.my fryiend recomended him .I love his staff the are very supportive and kind . Im 1 day post op and what ever I will say will not be enough to discribe the professonalty of my doc , he was very gentle and carrying. Explained avrything and came to see me many times po .I just love him and adores him .I highly recommend of him !!
