I was terrified about the whole procedure and still am really. i had three children of my own and then carried 4 for another couple (the last two were twins!:) One of the greatest expeiences of my life. Then lucky me, the dad is a plastic surgen and offered his services to me. i went back and forth for over 3 years, tried to get rid of the diet and exercise route, but of course it is not that easy.
Anyway, i finally got up the courage and here I am BORED and sore! So glad that i found this group that gave me the BEST idea of renting a chair lift! This has been a real help. But my back kills, don't know how the heck I will wash my hair,...and most of all feeling guilty about a surgery I didn't "need" technically. My husband has been great, but I still feel vain for doing it.
I really hope that in the end, later this summer i will be thrilled that I did it. Right now, I just feel like a sore lazy lump. Oh yeah, they removed over 4 1/2 pounds from my belly area.
Any advice how to best get through the next week or so? How often should I get, up what kind of exericses, ect I will try to post photos if I can figure out how! :) Oh yeah, how do you know if your drains are clogged in the tube? And what color is bad, coming from the drains?
