11 days po.. Had my second follow up today... Guess have to keep my drains in one more week... :-((((... They took the surgical tape off, was very happy to see that the incision line in very very thin....I guess that the benefit of having a Doc that offered a modified TT... Still lots of swelling .. Next week I can start scar treatment for my breast and TT...

12 day PO.. Had a doctors appt for my other surgery I had Nov 13th on my foot.. Yes I had 2 back to Bavk surgeries .. Lol.. Well after driving home I decided to get me a padi/mani :-) had to make myself feel better.. No pain from TT or breast lift/implants beside them darn DRAINS!!!!! Can't wait to get them out! Ugh!!

13 days PO- what a day...

13 days PO....What a day- lots of swelling after dealing with my car tire popped last night picking up my daughter from daycare.. Did not feel to get it fixed, but I need my car... Then I had so much pain in my right drain, nurse told me to come in the office today and I asked him again to remove it, at first he said no.. Then he came back and pulled the right drain.. Yea!! I was scared that it would hurt since it was in my groin area, but no pain. Feels soooo much better!! Can't wait till next week for #2 to get pulled. Have lots of swelling today after running around for over 5 hours today. Time to rest..

Swelling reduction suggestion...

Swelling reduction suggestion...Doc told me today since I am walking more= swelling more :-(... use a small rolling paint brush and roll your belly....start in the middle and go left/right.... Will help reduce swelling... Been doing it since day 2 ...(13 days PO today) Do it 4xday - 5 min

14 days PO

Today I am questioning my decision on doing a modified TT for my upper belly lose skin.. Why? All the pain and I am so swollen and have so much fluid in my upper belly with lots of pain after taking out my right drain yesterday .... I should have just done my breast lift w implants... I am worries I made the wrong decision, since I did not have that much skin to be cut off. I am regretting my decision today, hopefully I will feel better about my decision soon, but today I feel very down..

18. Days PO

18 days PO. Finally my 2nd drain is out today. I ended up having seroma on my upper belly after they took out the 1st drain right before xmas. They took out lots of fluid and I almost passed out. Lol.. Nurse adviced me to get some spandex to cover my lower area too , since after taking out my 2nd drain swelling will set in even more. So now I am sitting here , still dizzy and resting in my spandex I can't hardly breath in it. Lol .. Guess I will deal with lots of swelling the next 2-6 month.. Have another appointment on Wednesday to get some more fluid removed...

19 days PO.. Let the scar treatment begin????

Seroma set in again today. Seeing doctors again to get fluid taking out again. Left Scar Away on for 24 hours see pics below. Using bio-oil and cocoa butter too after.. Scars look great, being only 20 days out..

Today marks 3 weeks PO...

Today marks 3 weeks PO.. This is truly the first day I feel normal again.. Been cooking/cleaning without feeling bad. Let's hope this will continue this way. Back to work on Tuesday..

Word of advice....

To all my TT friends. I was reading someone saying after they had there TT recently they been eating nothing but junk food after surgery.. My question is WHY? .. Just because you had a TT and or lipo does not = you can not regain your weight/belly.. So with that being said.. Please eat healthy = better recovery, less swelling...eat at least 1gram of protein per body weight plus 1-2 cups of green veggies and a healthy carb if you active..
Just my advise ladies.. Happy new year!!

23 days PO

23 days PO.. Feeling so much better the past 2 days.. Finally spend some time with my 4 year old daughter out the house.. Yea..

Started to massage my cocoa butter and paint rolled my stomach .. Feeling better afterwards :-))

Hopefully I can find something comfy while at work. Hope you ladies have an awesome recovery... Stay Positive! It will get much better!

4 weeks PO & back at the gym

4 weeks PO & back at the gym today. Listen to your body and take it slow and steady.. 45 min Precore and upper body only. Not ok'd yet for leg training. Most important I wear a workout waist trainer under my cloth to keep my swelling under control. Keep your nutrition clean and drink only water..
Happy Saturday ! It will all get better- time will heal us!!

Keep your swelling under control ladies.

Keep your swelling under control ladies.,..Have you tried lymphatic massage? I am 4 weeks PO and this has kept me from swelling .. My PS gave me 30 min free yesterday, but I been doing it since week 2... And I have a waist trainer I am wearing while at work and active.

Frustrated!!! I am 6 weeks PO.. And lose skin again

Frustrated!!! I am 6 weeks PO.. I had a modified TT w muscle repair. Swelling is slowly going away and now I have LOSE skin again? PS said I needed skin thighning treatment ...REALLY? $300 per session .. Ummm did I not just had a TT & All the Pain I been through, and no difference? I could cry, so frustrated!!
Did any one have a modified TT and as soon as swelling goes away, ended up w lose skin????

8 weeks today

8 weeks today and still have lots of swelling in my lower abs. Scars looking better at my breast and TT.. It will take sometimes to get back on track. Very frustrating progress in my opinion. I am having a hart time to get my strength back in the gym and everyday life. Not seeing the progress I hoped for with the MODIFIED TT. I should have done better research. If I look back I wish I have never done it. The pain is NOT worth the outcome, at least not for me for the little bit of lose skin I had.
