1 week post OP appoinment

So it's one week now and I wouldn't encourage but I was out shopping for hours yesterday... of course tired but it was manageable.. went to the surgeon office for follow up check up... he was a bit surprised to see me walking quite well.. so as I wanted to know more, he told that he took out approx 1.4 pound of skin only... lol... tighten muscle all the way up to bottom.. and my belly that is quite pointing out is expected to pulled in by itself but if it doesn't he will make a new one :).... beside that he can see some fluid accumulation but dun find it necessary to drain it out as he expected it to dry itself, but if it doesn't and bothering I can walk in to his office to suck it out...my lower tummy is quite round but he assured it us swelling, end result shall be more flattened... upon his advice I tried to feed my 13 pound in sitting position, and she was passed to me, just little bit lifting of head but it was not good idea as within 2 minutes I start feeling uneasy on my abdomen, so I pass her back to the helper... will wait a Liltle longer for this... driving also not yet.. only walking at the moment... no different then previously posted picture... will post new 1 when get chance... take care all
