29, 3 Kids Finally Got my Tummy Tuck - Winnipeg, MB

Hi everybody, I'm 10 days post op and excited to...

Hi everybody, I'm 10 days post op and excited to finally being all healed up and show off my tummy. I had a few scares with lung blood clots etc but I hope it will all be worth it at the end. My stomach looks great so far. My family has been supportive and I can't wait to go back to work next Tuesday :)

Looking good!!! If you don't mind me asking, what caused the blood clots?

Maybe smoking and not quitting a month before like they expect you too. But not 100% sure. I did quit though and not planning on going back. They say though that these things can happen during surgery.. It could be blood or fat. I will be seeing a specialist who will tell me exactly what's going on.

Unsure feelings about swelling? :( 15 days post op

Hey ladies, sometimes I am happy with my results and sometimes I'm not sure about if it's still swelling or fat. Is that normal? I mean I'm sure I still have some swelling especially because I'm only 15 days post op but I'm afraid that it's gonna be fat :( I guess time will tell.

Your just very swollen still. Still a long time before swell hell disappears. I can tell when it does, your going to look amazingly better than what you do now. I guess we have to be patient. I too wish this swell hell will go away :( I want to see my final results.

My lower abdomen is really puffy to me. I heard someone said that they are massaging their stomach which made a big difference...I don't know for sure.

How scary about the blood clots! I'm curious as to when they formed, were you home when it happened?

Yes.. Maybe 2 or 3 days post op I felt like I was short of breath and then the next morning I woke up with pain in my rip cage where I Couldn't breath or move for a while and made the doc appointment. I wasn't sure if I slept funny or if it's the clots.
Omg! Glad your ok!

Sutures are dissolvable but don't always go on their own. I had the same issue with one of my breasts.

Very happy with results. I was disappointed though that I couldn't get a hold of him when I really needed him after my fall. (The night of surgery) or even the next day.
