29 Jul 2015
Day of treatment
Wow can't believe I did it a Lil out of it but here's the pictures I promised. I will continue to post more along the way. My surgeon is stopping by tomorrow so hopefully I get a Lil look
Wow can I say I 'm in more pain then yesterday:( I seriously didn't think it would hurt this much. The medication helps but then your just sleeping all day, I'm not use to that as Iam very active.i hope the pain gets better so I can wind of the meds faster...my surgeon is stopping by him self today to change my dressing and take my catheter Out. I'll take pictures of under the binder
first look under
Ok ladies my surgeon just left my house from checking on me and changing my dressing. I love that he personally comes by and calls etc???.....any how he's amazing I love my new waist if your looking for a surgeon in the Houston area you need to meet with him????
The struggle to the bathroom is real thanks to raised toilet seats
Well Today I feel a little better
Well I got to take some what of a shower ...I sat down on my shower chair and let my husband soap up my legs and private area's I stood up so he could spray them off I did have my binder on as I'm not to take it off till Monday. But that was amazing as I have lipo holes around my buttocks from some Contouring my doctor did. They have been itchy may I add:/ anyhow after that I sponged bathed from the top up and then leaned Over the tub while hubby washed my hair:))) I feel so clean.im not suppose to shower till Monday without my binder so that will have to do. ..the pain isn't as bad mostly just a dis comfort
my set up
Well this is my set up at home I have my meds, water and ginger ale on the table next to me along with a walker my good friend lent me which is a huge help ladies. ..
Moved around a Lil to much today and ended up swollen as heck!
I guess I know now what yall mean
Today I broke down as I can not walk straight or very long at all before I sit and rest. 5 minutes of walking kills me more then 2 hours at the gym. Very frustrating so here came the tears oh how I wish to be my old self. I have 3 little ones who need me to do for them and I feel so guilty that Iam just down :/ sleeping on my back is getting old and painful as I kinda fell forward and hit my top tooth on my bottom one:( ...today I get a real shower which will be nice since I have this one lipo hole near my buttocks that constantly Leaks down my legs ugh
tomorrow is my one week check up
I hope these drains get removed tomorrow! How much fluid do the drains have to collect before they are taken out ladies? ??? The one on my left hip is a pain in the butt...not to mention my kids are pretty scared of the fact I have blood shacks hanging lol
one week post op visit
Well today was my one week check up visit and I got my drains out whoo hoo! Thank you Jesus! ??? ...Anyhow drains are out and now I'm in a very very tight spank type body suit to compress as much as possible. He also sent me home with an extra one one size down to try and get into. I can't tell you how tight this thing is but ladies I'll take it over the belt any day, that thing was so un comfortable it cut into my sides and I just had to adjust it every time I moved :/ ...oh and I forgot to mention I read a lot of women saying the drains coming out were so painful well my surgeon told me he spends a extra on the type of drains he uses and it seems to help, well I can vogue for him it didn't hurt at all. It was quick and painless. . Here's some pictures my husband snapped keep in mind Iam super swollen guys, I was blessed with hips but not that much lol
forgot this picture
The drains my surgeon uses
2nd stage garment. ...it's so tight. .. but on another note I did my Hair for hubby :)
two week check up
So today was my two week follow up and everything was okay . I had an area I was concerned about in my lower abdomen that I thought had a seroma so my surgeon stuck me with the famous need to check but it was just from being swollen (thank god)... he's such a great doctor guys very attentive and caring, I know I've said that a lot but he truly is. I spoke to him about my garment being a little tight around my tight area and he's ordering me two special ones that are mid tight high with an open croch to pee from:))) glad I didn't order it yet myself. Anyhow I thought that was great as he really didn't need to. Well the visit was well his only concern was for me to really moisturize Better as I'm starting to really dry out and flake gross:(... also to start my massages up and away from my incision area. yay I get to have hubby massage me While I relax:)... also I managed to go to the grocery store with the help of my husband since I'm still not able to walk for very long. I finally did some healthy grocery shopping time to really start watching what I eat,can't wait till I'm able to hit the gym once again as I still want to lose a few pounds
how I look so far
Can't wait to see the final result after the swelling has completely gone
trying to stay positive
Well I'm trying to stay positive. Just wish I could wear my jeans comfortably already????ugh I mean I did work up the nerve to try them out and they finally fit but because of the swelling I'm just not comfortable...how long did it take for you ladies to start feeling normal in clothing that wasn't stretch? And for this hunch back of nocher dame look to finally be gone ????
trying to get some type of activity in..
Well today I started walking on my treadmill just to get some exercise in I did a whooping 25 minutes before I had to stop lol it's unbelievable how tired I get so quickly. I went from 2 hours in the gym to 25 minutes,i guess it's better then nothing at all..
