Well I did it - Tummy Tuck & Leg Lift
On Monday June 17th I had it done. I don't remember much of that day. I have 1 drain per leg & 2 for my stomach. I feel almost normal today. I only needed muscle relaxant & pain pills for 2 days. I stopped them as soon as I could. Them seem to cause constipation. Worst part is after losing all the weight I have an non-padded rear so sitting has gotten to be not only boring but uncomfortable. I don't visualize having that fixed however. I am actually more comfortable on hard kitchen chair than in my lounge chair. Scar and new belly button looks good and I am getting feeling back in stomach day by day. Getting out of bed is a tough part of day as is adding/removing wraps on both legs, compression garment around stomach, and then getting normal clothes on while positioning train tubes so they don't pinch. I am looking forward to removal of those. I am happy so far and appreciate Jen here who has given me many tips as to dealing with this all. I do believe going through this I could provide insight as to what the doctors office doesn't necessarily prep you for. Hope all is well with everyone. In fall I will have under arms done and that will be it.
