Back to work in 10 days, wearing my roomier jeans, incisions look very precise (still have stitches and steri strips), no drain tummy tuck (way to go!) I'm still somewhat swollen, more so by end of day but managed pain which was primarily in core area for first week with percocet during the day and flexeril or valium at night. Be prepared for constipation first three days or so post op. Still more comfortable sleeping in recliner with legs up. Now taking Bromelain and Arnica which are homeopathic ways to reduce swelling and bruising. Also eat a lot of pineapple.
Will be on the beach two weeks from now. Won't see full results for some time yet but am pleased with results so far.
