TT/LS in Turkey - Izmir, Turkey UPDATE 2 weeks PO

I had TT and Lipo on 1 June 12, it's 3 June now...

I had TT and Lipo on 1 June 12, it's 3 June now and I feel pretty good today. Finally checked out of the hospital and back to the apartment at lunchtime. Kent Hospital was great, very very clean, staff friendly and knowledgable. Only complaint is the food SUCKED. I was only given soup for 2 days and consistency was like baby food. I had the lady helping me get some instant soup at the supermarket, much better!!

Finally got around to loading a few new pictures and a couple of my bruises. They are finally fading but still...OW. I have some abdominal area swelling still, my PS said that would be the last to go at 4-6 weeks out. Grr. I'm SO impatient. The good news is I have 1 wk left in the CG, the bad news is I have to work, it's 117 degrees, and I wear a uniform. :(. I'm planning on staying in the office as much as possible, as close to the a/c as I can get!!!

17 days PO. God, back to work today and I can't...

17 days PO. God, back to work today and I can't bear the way the waistband of my uniform is touching my stomach. I am totally useless today and definitely am in swell hell this afternoon. I'm afraid if I wear a bigger pair of pants I'll have a wardrobe malfunction, LOL. The pants FIT, they are just a big change from the NO PANTS I've been wearing. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, it's been over 100 degrees all week.

Today was better. I ditched the belt completely...

Today was better. I ditched the belt completely and did the old rubber band on the top button trick from when I was pregnant. Still feel like I'm having more swelling than I was before but I also finally feel the bruises are healing. I got my new swimsuit in the mail today and I LOVE it. Will take a picture later.
Turkey Plastic Surgeon

I booked my surgery through Revitalize in Turkey, they specialize in medical tourism. I am stationed in Southern Turkey with the military so it was very close for me, only a 1 hr plane ride. For the price I paid, I got TT and multiple area lipo, with a personal assistant for the 2 days in hospital and 8 days in an apartment with 3 follow ups with Dr. Cenk. They normally use the Gazi Hospital, but my Dr. at the base insisted I use the other one, so I had to pay extra. It would have been 4900 at Gazi! Cannot recommend enough, Dr Cenk and all his staff speak English and go out of their way to help answer any and ALL questions. The helper, Tugba, is an absolute angel. She stayed in hospital with me for 2 days and nights. I don't yet have any photos, my camera is at home, but I will ask the Dr. to take one for me at my follow up on Tuesday.
