I used Dr. W for my tummy tuck on 11-17-10. He removed 3 lbs of fat by lipo and another 3 lbs of skin. He did an excellent job. The first 2-3 days were rough on getting up and down and I was sore and VERY swollen in my pelvic region and bruised. But after about the 3rd day, I was able to get up and down on my own, just slowly. Just take your pain meds every 4-6 hours and try and sleep.....make sure to drink lots of water so that you have to get up to go to the bathroom, that will help you get use to getting up easier. I am back to work today (desk job) and I did some Christmas shopping this weekend. Haven't had a pain pill since about the 4th day, just some Tylenol Extra Strength before bed a few nights. I am still not standing completly straight, but am almost there, lol. I also had no drain, and am so excited already with my results. Good Luck to you.
