42 days PO peeps and being patient with the results!

I'm a married mother of one 9 year old daughter who was well worth the jelly belly and stretch marks! This has been a dream of mine since I had her and I swore before I turned 40 i was going to get a tummy tuck and I'm going to be 39 in 2 weeks. Luckily I work for attorney's and they do very well and one decided to grant me I wish and paid for the TT and Lipo. Woo-hoo so bye, bye jelly belly!

I'm PO 11 days and haven't been on here cuz ive been in the dumps about having seroma on my low back. It's been drained once and I go tomorrow for the 2nd draining, ugh! It's very painful since its on my back so sleeping isn't to comfortable. The TT was a cake walk I would never say that's not worth it cuz it was now the lipo is a different story, it's as if someone beat you like a drum. Would I do it again u ask, only if monkeys flew out of my butt Atleast that's what I say 11 days later cuz I'm in so much pain but we'll see in a month my review on it.

20 days PO, I feel great. Don't get me wrong my ab muscles are sore and my back hurts, plus I still have the seroma that's going to be drained for like the 5th time. But,,,,, I WOULD NEVER EVER CHANGE A THING! Best decision, hands down that I ever made. If any of you pre-tummy tuckers are scared don't be. Go in to it knowing there will be obvious pain but that you are strong enough to over come it. Know that you deserve this procedure and you shouldn't have any reservations about having it done because you do have the right to have your confidence back. Each day you see the amazing changes of your body and you can finally wear cute panties not granny tummy holder uppers.. Positive attitude is my best advice and listen to your own body. Just because someone else is at a different stage doesn't mean your stage is a bad one.

I woke up with such a better attitude and a little hungover. I had to go to a client dinner and because my mood was so icky and I was so down yesterday that when I got to the dinner meeting I downed three flirtinis. YIKES,,,,
and my PS wife happened to be there at the table behind us, it was a little weird. I was afraid she would tell on me for drinking, ha! What's really strange is that I woke up not as swollen in the vajay area. I'm not promoting booze to make the swelling better but I had anticipated waking up with a flesh built in man cup for my lower half and that wasn't the case. 21 days PO and still having issues with the seroma but I'm not going to focus on that anymore. Every time I look down or feel my tummy I think what a lucky person I am to have been able to get this done. (Thanks to a friend's generosity)! Everyone wants to know what they need and I'm firm believer to try not to over think it or stress out about what people tell you what you need but be calm and take deep breaths, take it all in. Just know that each of us are different in healing and our needs.

I'm 24 days PO and I had my first real outing Friday night to some MMA fights and had a blast. I didn't walk with my head down or hate walking around. I actually felt GOOD! I've this rash thingy coming up around my right side incision so my PS said take off the silicon strip he gave me to wear so I will give that a shot but OMG does it itch! Does anyone know if after 3 weeks it's ok to spray tan?

Well I put my old jeans on and they were snug at first than after some wear they began to sag off of me. I know I'm still so swollen due to the lipo and the TT but I got a little down. My expectations were far more progressed then where I'm at now. I've also started my regimen of scar therapy with collidal silver which is a gel. Still wearing the CG which I don't mind. I hate looking down and seeing my Ken doll vajay it's just weird! UGHHHHHH

I woke up in a great mood, positive attitude about where I'm at in my recovery and learning to be patient. My Hubs used the rolling pin with the Arnica lotion and swear to goodness it helps. My lipo areas that were all hard and weird are softer and not as sore. I've started on a water pill so I'm hoping that will help with some of the swelling. I still have that god awful rash and oh does it itch! I'm assuming it's an allergy to that silicone dermapatch.

Ok so more getty up in my step and I'm so glad I'm not being Debbie Downer anymore. On another positive note the hubs and I ya know last night and he was pleasantly surprised at the waist line and the knockers (if my waist is small my natural boobs look bigger).... I t didn't hurt my back or anything and no maneuvers to hide the flubber gut it was actually relaxing! Sorry if this is to much info but it's the first time in a long time that I was acting like a freak trying to pose as if I'm my old self in bed for the hubs it's truly liberating!

Got my spray tan on last night and I feel so much better. My hubs noticed when I woke up and kept making that cat noise, reaooooow kinda sound so that made me feel good! I hope everyone that hasn't done this reads everyone's posts on how life changing this is. I would do it again and again, seriously! I might even get back in to doing improve, I was made to feel very insecure but now that my confidence is back I might get my funny back, woo-hoo! (It was just at local bars where I live, but it was so fun) minus the people that were in the group some of them were awful people.

Feeling good a little bummed because I think I will have to have additional lipo because I have a roll underneath my boobs. It's nothing compared to what I had but none the less it's a roll. He had mentioned perhaps the need for more lipo but I had it in my head that this was going to be 100% problem free, ugh!

Ok so I had a horrible night of back pain and tummy pain with feeling as if I was going to puke at any given moment. So I'm driving to work getting ready to get gas and I get side swiped by a lady and it rung my bell. I knew she was going to hit me so I tensed up (big no, no) Now my neck hurts, my head hurts and my tummy...... UGH, why can't there be just one day without pain? I'm wanting one nights rest with no tummy spasms or back spasms.

6 WEEKS TODAY--------HOLY CRAP!
It was so worth it and I wouldn't change a thing. I'm glad I found this site. When you're down you've got someone to pick you up or give you advice. So thanks ladies! Did I mention I'm six weeks today?? WOO-HOO!
