I had a full t/t with muscle repair& 2hernias repaired. I wasn't aware that I had hernias but I had that figures because b4 my tummy was a size of a house I did look pregnant even though there was no chance! I went for this op to correct myself fro previous surgeries !

Day 22..

Well today is day 22/3wk mark.. Recovering well. Still not walking 100%but they say that's normal, still sleeping on my back&trying so hard to sleep on my side but its so not happening I'm to sore&tender!
Still very swollen but looking a lot better, I was annoyed during the week as I asked a surgeon on this site why my belly button looked so weird& not like every1 else's.. I know to peeps are not the same but after there advice& a few days worrying done I looked tis morning & wow it's startn to heal like hole cut round it is starting to fade to a nice pink colour only a little improvement but its a improvement...

Day22 cont...

Contined... Hit post instead of finishing.. (I phone's)....
I wasn't told to wear a binder ect so I invested in a c/g vest top wow.. Is not really on long enough but I do find it help sucking me in a little more.. I'm really gonna have to increase my water intake as I don't fink I'm drinking near enough? I don't really like water so maybe diluted juice will work(haha)..
I'm so glad I joined this site to be honest as every1 shares there issues ect& If I asked half my doc half these questions he would be thinking wdf? Mmm will upload a few pics soon..
Happy healing every1...
