I had Full Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair and Lipo to the flanks.I"m only 6 days post op but i can tell there is going to be a big difference. i had lots of stretch marks almost up to my rib cage but now they're down by my belly button. i'm really swollen too. i was so scared and worried about this surgery. thinking something could go wrong. but i'm a 25 year old mother of 3 and i wanted to enjoy my body again. and i wanted the confidence to do things with my kids again. my belly made me so self conscious though. and it's gone now!
went in for surgery at 7:45am on Thursday March 12th. i woke up fully dressed before i even realized i fell asleep. i felt zero pain. when i had to get up to walk i could tell something had been done to me, but it was just very weird. i felt a burning sensation in my belly kind of.
i slept the first 4 days away. stopped taking percocet on Sunday night. and now i'm only taking extra strength tylenol when needed.
Day 4 cabin fever and depression hit. i regretted the whole thing. i hate being helpless and useless. i hate not being able to clean my house, i hate not being able to hold my kids. i have a 7 year old, 3 year old, and 10 month old. my husband will be home for 2 weeks with me but i still wish i could do more.
i have my first post op appointment tomorrow and will update again!
