My motivation was seeing before and after pictures.Owe my business so could have time off anytime, not so, lots of planning, arranging, getting things in place to have surgery, finally decided for Sept.25 t went in nervous, lots going thur my mind but everyone at the hospital was very nice had the surgery,my surgeon is remarkable been 5 weeks so much improvement,I think I look fantastic each and every day,I definitely recommend a TT will make a big chance mentally and physically!
Flat Abs AT 58
Posting some photos at five weeks after post op still some swelling on left side makes my scar look uneven Dr. said will be better in time faster healing on one side than other. Still can see CG marks on my sides where I'm still wearing at nite for another week, but at least I'm sleeping on by sides for alittle at nite not a back sleeper at all! Going to get on my tread climber today been lazy shame on me. Leaving my CG off for a while to let the bio oil absorb into my scar better feels really weird your CG becomes part of you the feeling has come back to a lots of areas of my stomach do it feels funny running my hand over it or clothing touching it.
First nites sleep without CG
Called my PS at 6weeks post op and ask if I could take CG off at nite and he said yes! what a relief,still couldn't lay my legs down all the way flat,but that process will come.Posted some pics and no CG lines on sides or at below breast so wonderful most of the feeling is back except around incision and around bb,still alittle sensitive when clothing touches my stomach so excited with the results! :-)
Parted with my CG at bedtime
Been 6wks. post op,called my PS and asked if I could leave the CG off at nite and he said yes :-),still can't stretch my legs flat yet but that's coming in time feels funny my gown touching my stomach but its a good feeling,posted some pics no compression marks on sides and below my breasts

Some days are worse than other when I'm at home not doing much I don't wear my spanx but my pants touching my stomach is unbearable sometimes my stomach having feeling and numbness is the problem I know will get better in time, was wondering if anybody else is having this problem as you can see in some of my photos I had my gallbladder took out years ago left a scar but sense my tt and MR it bought my scar down further on my stomach and is very smooth and light thanks to my ps
Over worked myself,ugh!
I'm going on 10wks after my Tt,mr, have a cleaning business someone has been sick everyday this week so I had to work full force this week on Fri. I decided not to wear myCG,mistake by the end of the day I was in pain swell hell was here and alittle swelling in upper abs,this morning when I got up having muscle spasms in abs area where I had the mr done hope I hadn't done any damage will call my ps Monday and ask some questions,going back Fri. Dec.13th but want to know before then,believe me will wear cg next time no matter how uncomfortable they are. I know now the healing does take awhile and is different with everyone

Went back to my ps on Dec.13th said eveything looking good,told him about my swelling on left side above incision he used a needle to see if there was fluid in couple of areas and no fluid so he thinks its just inflammation so I guess that will resolve on its own my stomach still does the swelling in the afternoon,numbness comes and goes but I am very pleased with my results going back to my ps on Jan.6th for my after pics and he is going to fix the dog ears that gas formed at the ends of my incision have posted some photo's so my visit in Jan. my ps will probably released me will see,hope all my realself friends have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!
