more pictures

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. ..

super swollen

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

so swollen!

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..

sorry I haven't updated

OK so I haven't updated because I been super busy...but so far I been hitting the gym I got my energy back so I'm getting an hour in a day no weights just cardio. Also I weighed myself and I'm already down 7 pounds and I'm sure I'm gonna go Down even more because I'm still swollen..here's some pictures

Texas Plastic Surgeon

I initially Went in for a breast augmentation consultation, but shortly decided I was gonna go for my tummy tuck with lipo first. I had two other consultations Before I found Dr. Bancroft once i was greeted by him personally and spoke to him, I knew he was going to be my surgeon! He was so different then other surgeons I spoke to he put my fears aside quickly and his very up beat attitude won me over. Please ladies if you're considering a tummy tuck look into him and just give him an hour of your time to explain how he goes about the procedure,you won't regret it. His bed side manner is amazing. .even though I could have went with a surgeon that was 500 dollars cheaper I chose him because of the vibe I received...he truly loves what he dose, and it shows, also a big plus he personally makes A house visit the day after surgery=)
