Thank you. ...my husband just helped to get me.. well... put together...He said on you can already tell and ur still swollen it's only a day 2!!! I'll be so happy to get this drain out!!!! Everyone keeps asking him what I had surgery on.he just keeps saying it's a woman thing!!! I've had 7 children and have worked my butt off at the gym 6 days a week and 45 min cardiovascular at home. It's not that I'm ashamed I just know I worked soon hard and I can only imagine what people will have to say.any suggestions?
After seven children u have a right to treat yourself. It is nobodies business about your personal decision. If someone asks I would just say that it is a very personal issue u and your doctor had felt needed to be addressed. Most ppl with manners would not press further and I would not explain. You are going to look unbelievable good and you owe no body and explanation. Good luck. Your story is inspirational.

3 days post op

Took a shower with my husband's help...challenging but felt great .


You are lookin awesome! I have done same thing worked really hard and don't want people to know and I say same thing it's just a woman thing when they know I've had surgery ;) your looking great looking forward to your hearing about journey to the flat side:)

Wow! You look really good! Did you also have a breast lift and/or augmentation? Also what are you putting on your scar, it looks really nice! Congrats!!

Thanks! No .....that's all me ;) I don't put anything on my scar...I take 2000 vitamin c everyday it cuts the healing time in half and puts collagen back in ur body among other benefits.....
Wow! Everyone here is such an inspiration! Thank you for all the kind words and support. 7babies? Wow, you look incredible! 3 day po for me. Think I'm over the hump but have decided to wait to have a real shower. Looking forward to the sponge bath my husband promised me later. Best of luck to you all, and thanks for the guidance.
