In prep, he used a marker again and showed me where he would cut. Told me to relax and that I would be happy with it. After surgery I woke up in pain! I was cut from past hip to past hip. WHich I knew but I didn't realize how much pain I was going to be in after! However, you have to remember I am very sensitive to pain:) I went home after a couple of days. I couldn't sit or stand straight and had to bend down to walk. I was exhausted! I was off work for 4 to 6 weeks? Can't remember.
I went to work and still couldn't s stand straight up. I walked in very small steps and felt daily that there was something wrong inside. When I was given permission to have sex it was horribly painful and I just couldn't. I kept telling both doctors something was wrong. They couldn't seem to see or understand that I wasn't kidding. 2 or 3 months later I just get worse weekly. It got so bad I couldn't walk and my mother drove me to the emergency room. I was checked and was immediately hospitalized. By the way, I never got my after pics. I can't remember really what went on as I was in and out of it, uncouscious from pain meds or pain I can't remember. I vaguley remember being told I had an infection inside. I had to have surgery. I went to surgery the next day. After, I was told it was an infection between my vaginal wall and anas about 3 inches long. Again, I was out of it. I was in the hospital around 6 days. I was sent home and off work again for a few weeks again. I never saw a bill from that. I can't say I am completely unhappy as I am happy about my stomach. I do need to get a scar revision as part of the scar on one side is higher and below the skin on that side it looks like my skin sunk in. Kind of weird. I did go back to Dr. Kumpf whom said he could fix the scar for around $500. I may or may not do it.
*I am unsure the date of my procedure.
