I've made it... Its now saturday and I'm off the T3's. I still take an occassional robaxacette for the muscle fatigue in my back. I was not sleeping well initially after surgery and I thought the meds would knock me out, turns out that T3's have caffeine in them and I could not sleep! I saw the results yesterday for the first time at my post op appointment, My tummy is amazing- cant wait to see the final results of the BL/BA. I was surprised after surgery to find my drains located below the stitch line - It never occurred to me that they would be anywhere other than in the TT line. Its okay there except I will not wear any panties or pants until there are removed because of the pressure on them.
I was told I could shower, but I would have to "rig" something to hold protect the drains. I will wait until wednesday when the drains are out. So all in all when it comes to the staff they were okay...I was not impressed about "the rigging" or the fact that my doc was not there yesterday for the post op (maybe thats normal?) but the big beef was when she told me my husband had put my binder on upside down and backwards, I told her we didn't remove it at all...but she insisted their staff would not have made such an error. Other than these issues they were very informative and put me at ease before surgery. I am pleased at how well I am moving around. I can do most things without my husbands help now...I think he is relieved more than I!!!
I have not taken any PO pics yet - maybe today?!!

Here it is 8 weeks later and I have loved this summer with my new tummy. Having never worn a bikini or anything revealing...I finally got that privilege this year! I will likely have to have a second surgery on my left breast as it did not "settle" like the right one. I will find out in the fall when that will be. For anyone considering this surgery - I would do it over again. I dont even blink when I think of the money I spent. Worth every dime!!
