I am doing well, a lot better this week than last, thats for sure! I am still swollen in my tummy area, and my breasts are pretty sore, especially by the end of the day, but I am seeing the swelling go down in my thighs, my husband says they are slimming up alot . I am just past 3 weeks post op, so I think I am trying to push myself to recover too quickly. I am really an impatient person, waiting for the final results is tough. Plus, I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that I can't do everything I need to do with the kids' activities, plus clean the house, and cook dinner, without being exausted, sore and swollen by the end of the day . I don't like not being able to do everything by myself, and I am the last person to ask for help. The kids go back to school one week from today, kinda looking forward to that.

Thanks Sherri for sharing such details with us - its very reassuring to get the details when they are so fresh for you and it sounds better than others have told me so I am less scared now.
Did you have Csections at all with the kids? If so how does it comare for you?
Keep up the excellent work!!

I did not have c-sections with any of the kids, so I had nothing to compare to, I have never had any type of surgery before this, and this was some pretty major surgery I think, but it was not as bad as I was fearing, just a longer healing process than I hoped for.

I am loving my results. I am just past 6 weeks post op now, pressure garment free, and pretty much able to do anything I feel up to. I do feel swollen just a little in the belly area at the end of a long day but other than that feeling good! My husband loves my thighs the best, I had a lot of lipo done on the inner and outer thighs. He says I am getting skinny, thats the best! I was not over weigh before, but I had a lot of those fatty areas that I just couldnt get rid of before, and now most of them are gone, so in the end the weeks of recovery and feeling down at times are well worth it!

Default anyone else use a pain pump?

Ladies, my doctor insisted I use the On-Q Pain Pump and it was the best thing ever! I felt that the pain was way less than my two c-sections and I never felt drugged or out of it. No. I don't work for on-q or anything. Just felt it made the surgery a lot more bearable.

Hi, My name is Jenn and I am 2 1/2 months post op from having a tummy tuck with lipo done. I am 29 with two children, and I am like you, I wanted to be up and running around with a couple of weeks but I will have to tell you, You will not be driving in 2 weeks. Sometimes it take a week to 2 weeks before the drains even come out. You will need to have your husband around you in order to move. Don't have a recliner, get one. It will hurt to cough and to move. You will be hunched over for a while. I returned back to work after 4 weeks. I also pushed myself to recover. I would get up and walk to the bathroom and back and start turning from side to side just to get the feeling of what I can and couldn't do. If you would like to talk more I would be happy to jdm832002@gmail.com and I will give you my home number. i don't regret a moment of it and it certainly depends on the surgeon you have. The surgeon makes a world of difference.

Good luck!
Jenn

Default Consultation scheduled for 23rd

Hello everybody!! I'm new here and am hoping to gain some information that will make me less "afraid"

I have wanted to have a TT, Lipo and breast reduction/lift for many years but have always been too afraid of the recovery pain to actually go through with it. I have finally scheduled a consultation for Jan. 23rd and am hoping to have the surgery by the 15th of February.

I've had two c-sections, how does this compare?

Thanks!!

Julie
