Well finally got My full TT and my face revision...
Well finally got My full TT and my face revision ,5 hr operation , I had a drain and pain pill s took pills for 2 days all that was needed , drain took out 6 th day ,haven't seen my belly yet but doc said it is really flat , I m sleeping on electric lazy boy so I'm not using muscles , I'm doing GREAT ! Really no pain to cry about or anything I can walk around ,doc said to walk straight or I'll get a sore back so I'm doing that too , I'm not lifting anything heavy , grandson helped hang clothes on line , really I don't have any pain that I read about ,the tight stomach garment is very helpful ,still have bandage on so maybe that comes off in the second week ! And my face is ok too , I haven't used an ice pack once on the face, at all , and by the way they said no ice on the belly , maybe warm blood needs to flow ?? I was scared for nothing after reading about people passing out from the pain ,maybe I have the BEST Doctor !!!
had full tt aug 10 ) i didnt take a before pic but my belly was big , every time i bent over with bikini underware on belly would roll down .plus i had a vertical scar from belly button to pubic area from a cessarien 40 yrs ago . i took these pics sitting down it was the first day i got bandage off , so i was really nervous looking down
for some more info about the drain , i had to empty every morning and can measure amount in a bottle dr gave me i would call and let him know how many ( C C ) drained out , first day was 70cc second was 40 cc > third was 30cc and the day to get it taken out was 20 cc i guess that is the time you can have it removed , there was a small hole incision in pubic area were dr inserted drain tube and when it was being pulled out it came all the way from my right side , about 6" long .and it didnt hurt at all !!! i thought it would ,i was expecting to scream , but nothing whats so ever . and thats the side thats a bit swelled so maybe because the drain was over there
ill put new pics this week . i noticed strech marks all across my belly coming up from the incision > anyone else experience this ????
