I am 5 days po and I went for a fully tummy tuck...

I am 5 days po and I went for a fully tummy tuck with lipo on the waist I weighed 198 lbs and I am 5'7" tall 7 months prior I had 700 cc's of saline plants and breast implants were more painful than a a full tummy tuck with lipo and muscle tighten. I am only five days and swollen and bruised but I find it unusual that I can flex my stomach muscles hold and release with no feeling of tightness or pain. So I wonder if doctor really tighten my muscles up. I did ask her and she she said she did and doubled sewed it as well. But why don't I have any felling on it? Shouldn't I ? I have always had the habit of holding in my stomach before my surgery. Might that be it?

8 days passed

Drains out and no pain just discomfort bandages on belly and bottom still on can't wait till those come off took a peek and scar looks like a pencils line no more bruising all gone muscles were tighten still very firm but no soreness and still swollen and very little discomfort were lipo was around waist area. Not bad at all not compare to the pain of my boobs. Plz I so recommend my doctor she takes her job to more than a perfection stage. And very gentle. And maybe cuz she is a female and very sincere and will try to give u the best results if not better!

4 weeks after full tummy tuck with waist lipo

Ok I had no pain the first 2 1/2 weeks but now I am feeling pain. It's more like spontaneous needle poking sharp pains. Soreness all over my tummy, I feel like I've been beat, punched,kicked all over my tummy from lipo and tummy tuck. I tell my husband at the end of the day after being on my feet or just doing too much or on my feet to much I will notice I will be in my most pain in the evening. My swelling is at it's most in the evening as well. I am still using my compression garment as well. I still have a lot of swelling and inside bruising although you might not be able to see it on the pics. But here is updated pics

Evening pics after being on my feet allday

I thought I would take some pics before I get into bed. After been doing chores thru out the house running errands getting ready for school to start so out shopping with 3 boys . But evening is when I hurt the most and feel swollen the most after not relaxing. It's a go, go, and still just almost four weeks

Scar after four weeks

I wanted to show my scars and because, I was scared of doing the tummy tuck and didn't want to look like Frankenstein afterwards. And I am impressed and happy with my scar that I think it's going to heal nicely. ( hopefully ). And it seems a little darker in pics but not so bad. And swollen and bruised still and pics were taken in the evening after being on my feet all day. Aswell
