Hey so I am 29 yrs old and a mother of 2. I had been wanting a tummy tuck and breast augmentation for a few years and finally it was financially feasible. My surgery was on April 30th. So today I am Post op 5 days. I am doing very well pain wise. I haven't had anything since yesterday morning and that was only one muscle relaxer. I am walking around a bit but not straight up and that is really annoying. My back kills and I think if not for that I would be doing much better. My first po appointment is tomorrow so I will try and update on that.

I am currently on post op day 11 and feeling...

I am currently on post op day 11 and feeling pretty good. The main thing right now is swelling and just getting tired easily. I am really looking forward to this whole swelling stage to go on feel pregnant sometimes and I feel like I look like it. Even with all of this I know I did the right thing and am still looking forward to flatter days ahead. One more exciting thing, I got my drains taken out on day 8. My goodness I felt 10 times better without those things hanging outta me.

Had my 2 week po app. Everything is healing beautifully doctor says. I'm actually really noticing the change in swelling, I just have to remember that I am ONLY 2 weeks out so just give my body some time and it will end up good. I squeezed my butt in some jean capris so I'm happy I can wear something other than yoga pants. I hate wearing yoga pants BC the garment I wear is like a topless bathing suit and it gives me this weird butt cheeck ripple thing. Haha I'm doing pretty good, I just notice if I've been going all day, very tired like right now.

Nearly 11 mos po!

I'm feeling great, living my new body. I've been going up and down with my weight unfortunately but the results are still fantastic. My ps keeps saying "dang!! I've done a real good job with you!" Lol can't say I disagree. I have a little big of a dog ear on both sides and actually had a date a couple of weeks ago to fix it but I backed out bc I would be unable to exercise for 4 weeks. Nope, I've got summer to worry about. I'll fix that next winter, I can live with it now.

Dr. Baker is absolutely wonderful! He is a perfectionist and it shows. He was so patient with me and answered all of my questions.
