Dr Ortega did a wonderful job I was really anxiety fill cuz I was by myself but over all I feel ok after my surgery I felt like someone drop kick me in the abs and I got a lotta swelling but I do not have a phoofa and a new belly button I am happy I will tell my friends about him but I'm good once the swelling subside I will post pic

It was ok the heating pad I used was a big no-no it burnt me might have second degree burn he wanted me to seen again but I leave at 4am I will be ok i will follow up by my PCP overall good

Recovery from burn wound

Come to find out I had third-degree burn and they had to cut the dead skin everything I haven't been on here for a while so I've pretty much shinier month post out I've been working on trying to get this healed the first one is probably week five

My progression of my wound

I found out that through another surgeon I had a burn also skin death of the skin where the tummy tuck incision was at . Inother words the skin was too tight for blood flow and cause death of tissue......... So rn im at a good ass wound clinic and im healing rn

Progression of my wound

Well it's getting smaller my wound this is yesterday pic but I'm hoping that I will get some grafting or sumthing

This photo was before I clean the wound

My progression

Looking great getting smaller praying that everything goes back to normal soon have picture not too happy looking at it but it surely starting to feel and I am super anxious for it to close out

Progression of wound 11/16

It's shrinking yea I'm praying that it will close soon experience tighting I am active walking but I'm slowly gaining weight dr told me to exercise lightly so I guess I will do what she say

I'm trying on clothes first time since tummy tuck

Feelin great I was very anxiety filled when trying on new clothes but I got over it I dropped two sizes very proud of myself here's a pic I took in the dressing room

Progression of my wound

Sucks my initial one that I have is closing up in a lot of shrinkage but I opened a new wound I guess a suture broke and I have a second one and it's very discouraging but overall I'm gaining weight praying that my initial one Wound closes and I can go work out I think my woefully close probably in February kind of scared though I want to do more work but don't know if I should

Picture of last weekend

Progression of my wound 12/23/16

The progression of one is been pretty good doctors telling me not to work out still I need to work out a lot of shrinkage even the one care specialist was telling me that it's closing up just worried about the tightness though that's around the wound

Progression of my wound 01/07/17

First aid Antibiotics and coconut oil ,water bottle and debridement been using that for the last four months doing The most with it massaging also I am so happy it's closing up I'm giving it until February the end of February to completely close . I still want to get more work done but I'm not sure if it should be Ortega or or someone else I didn't want to get lipo

Progression of my wound

I can't believe it's almost over LOL is getting their staying optimistic About it no complaints I'm starting to look for lipposuction options because it looks like i have a pop belly lol

I called sprectrum

I was told that I would get a free scar revision with360 Lipo happy but they have not a given me a revised quote yet I'm planning to go aug I pray there is no complications

Progression of my wound 3/2/2017

Wtf I have another stitch abcess this is making me mad it's already bad enough I have to prolong my healing but I'm debating if I want to go to Ortega to get this fix I don't think it's worth it I'm truly bummed out

Progression of my closed wound

Well everything is healing up progressively good I'm getting a lot of tightness and I think that's because my scar tissues like shrinking got a little bit of puckering in the frame but I'm going to the gym trying to lose this weight and I hope that it subsides keeping it slow and steady with the gym I am supposed to go to Vegas in May so I hope this the swelling and all that subsides made a decision on waiting until next year to go back to Dr. ortega for liposuction and possibly scar version
