I have two children ages 10 and 4yrs old, both were delivered by c-section. After my first child I was left with a flap and there was nothing I could do about it, and after my second pregnancy the flap became wider and more noticeable. Although, I was one of those types to always wear Spanx and a girdle under my clothes to make others not see what I see w/o clothes on, lol!!!
Anyway I've always wanted to get my Tummy Tuck done and I’m happy to say ladies, I DID IT!!!!! I had my surgery today 3/25/10 and I'm holding up pretty well.
DAY 1: Today 3/26/09 and I’m feeling the pain a little more since the anesthesia wore off. I have drains and a pain pump. The pain pump automatically releases medicine to the abdominal area which I think is helping out. I woke up every 25 minutes and it wasn’t because of pain, I just couldn’t really sleep. I’m glad I took the advice of a Realself member that advised renting a recliner will help out if you don’t have one. Actually, the recliner I rented is a medical recliner from Rent-A-Center. It lifts me up til my feet reaches the floor, which is absolutely fabulous and affordable.
As far as help, one of my girlfriends offered to take off from work for a week to help me out which was nice. My husband has been helping me with the kids and cooking.
I have to go back on Tuesday for my first post-op appt, so at that time I will upload some post-op pics.
