The day of surgery !!

Well just got off from work and rushing to get ready, been pigging out the whole week lol... But arrived at the hospital late :( I'm never on time anywhere, but nervous and excited.All I know is that I'm getting prep and they asking me questions my PS comes in and marks my stomach and then a nurse come in and says the room is ready for her. So I'm like smiling the nurse injects my IV with something and as I was bout to say this is the stuff that make you fall asleep I couldn't even finish my sentence I was out all I know is I woke up in a garment I was sore and sooooo dizzy I immediately threw up but just a little only once it just came up uhhhh I was like what the hell did I get myself into lol.....but my sister came got me the nurses wheeled me out to my car after I sat there for about an additional three hours I felt so sick uhhhh. Well I got home my sister and my husband help me out the car got me upstairs I immediately took my meds. For pain and nausea and here I am just lying in bed.

Three days after tummy tuck !!

Well here I am sore and I scared to do any thing lol... Well I can from my follow up at my PS office and she told me my surgery went well. I changed into another garment and I had a concern about coughing because I feel like I have mucus in my throat because I bent over over the weekend to pick something up off the floor and I had to cough because there was mucus in my chest. Oh lord I'm already a paranoid person did j break my sutures is what I'm thinking ??? But she assured me that they are sown pretty tight so okay but I'm so swollen I'm not flat at all ugghhhhh . Well she changed me out into a new garment and I went home and here I am got some more photos /:( I'm scared to do anything lol.....

When is the last time you saw your surgeon? Have they offered an ultrasound to see if your muscle repair failed? From what I have been told, it is possible. Especially if your muscles prior to the surgery were very stretched and very weak. I would ask your surgeon to order you an ultrasound to see where your muscles stand. Have you done that test too where you do a half crunch and run your fingers down your muscle line to see if the sutures are still in place? You can You Tube it to see how it's done. It could also be swelling. Everyone heals so differently. I wish you the best and keep us updated!

Yes that is a strong possibility but it depends on how high you stretch marks come up your stomach :)

Hi dear :) I just seen her on Monday and she told me that give it time and how tight she sewed it she doubt that it opened up she also said she will do lipo if I want but I'm not thinking about that I want to make sure that it didn't reopen it just feels sore where the bulge is and it's looks like I had nothing done but skin cut off I was thinking I should see another ps what do you think? Or should I call back and demand a ultra sound ? Thank you for your response :)

Ssamples: I still have stretch marks right above my incision. Although they are super light, they are there. They are the stretch marks that were above my old belly button before the surgery. It's VERY hard to get all the stretch marks to completely be gone with a tummy tuck. Usually they're pulled down as low as they can go.

Panama: I would do two things here - I would call your surgeon's office and tell them you would like an ultrasound of what's going on under your skin (sometimes you have to be your own advocate unfortunately) and I would also seek out another plastic surgeon while you're waiting for an ultrasound to see what he/she has to say about everything. Keep me updated!!!
