36 Mom of 1. 5'8 130lbs Gained 10lbs - Miami, FL

My hubby always made fun that "all you gotta do is put that fat in your butt" jokes and I finally did it. I didn't thought much and just made the decision in as soon as I found RS page. From the decision to the operation was in the window of 3months. I'm happy its out of the way and I no longer have to wait. A decision I made and not telling the hubby until I got my surgery date! But he's very supportive and I'm grateful for that. My decision on the Dr that is to perform was kinda hard. At first I was looking at Dr Fisher but something made me pull toward and decide New Life Dr Llorente.
So, I'm a skinny 130lbs at 5'8 tall and was told I had to gain weight.
It's hard to gain when you don't have much of an appetite.
I went back to eating everything gluten (which I manage not to do for nearly 2years) and everything dairy (4years of cut back on dairy intake).
I used whey & muscle powder in my smoothie which consists of a whole avocado, milk, scoop of ice scream & ice. I had one before bed for 10days.
I gain 10 lbs in 2 months. Not a lot but very hard for me to do as my job & metabolism makes me burn it so fast.
I was neither excited or nervous which was pretty unusual for me.
Day of surgery was July 5th 2016. I was pretty much out by the time the pina colada was injected.
I took a shower by the second day. Scale of 1-10 on pain it's about 13 on the first two days. Now it's about a 9.
Today is Friday and I finally did a #2. No ex lax to help just drank and made myself eat. The pressure of pushing is painful & feels like everything is burning.
My right cheek seems to be more in pain/swollen then my left.
Even tho my package includes 5 massages, I only did it the day after surgery. That was a pain scale of 18!!
I got my husband to massage me yesterday and will be doing it today as I won't be driving two hours back to office for the massages - an probably for the rest of the recovery ;)
I'm also stop taking pain meds 24hours now and to tolerate my healing process.
Long story short, looking forward to everything not to be so swollen :)

Boobs and sclerosis is killing my back

Any suggestions on how to sleep? Like I said boobs is in the way and my back is killing me sleeping on my belly.
My right butt is more tender from yesterday and I can feel "electrical buzzes" on my right stitches above the cheek. Also my right calve feels like I went to the gym & almost pulling-a-hamstring feeling. Are any of these normal?
Left side feels like it's healing good.
On a good note I went #2 again w no laxative help. Appetite is 50/50 but I'm trying to eat so I'm functioning normally.
I only did one massages since surgery (the day after) it was included w my package. But I don't think I can sit two hours driving to get a 45min rubdown. So the hubby has the pleasure of rubbing my fat flat lol.
Last pic is to show how dark my right butt is. We been rubbing on it a lot. I'm using tiger balm and coconut oil for my massages front and back.


Making my forte everywhere I go lol Legs are on the coffee table while back is on edge of sofa.
Last night I gave in and took the meds the dr prescribed so I can sleep.
I walked around the block last night and this morning.
I'm shrinking as its not as painful to zip up my faja. Thinking of wearing my waist cincher underneath it.
