My Tummy Tuck
Ive wanted a tummy tuck for the past 9 yrs. More so after I had my last 2 babies. My last baby is 2 yrs old and I got really big. I lost all my weight BUT my tummy was never the same.
I think I regret it now. I shoulda opted for some lipo 1st *SIGH* I dunno. Im about 32 days Post Op and I still feel very stiff in my abs. I havent been able to wear any of my shorts or jeans that are not stretchy material . My weight has sorta shifted, my body is just not back to normal and I am scared that it wont be. I am a very active woman. I love the gym, I love to kick box and hit the cardie hard. I don't know if I'm ever going to get back on track.
The tummy tuck hurt sooo bad. It wasn't the incision at all that stung for about a day the most. It was the tightening of the muscles that hurt BAD. To top it off my hubby dropped me the 1st day. He was helping me off the couch, our coffee table was in the way i said " babe push the table back with your left leg" So he lets me while on 1/2 way off the couch. It hurt so bad ..our abs are the core of our body and now I KNOW why. I couldn't hold myself up and it just hurt so bad tears came down my face and I just felt like I was going to pass out from the pain.
Anyway that didn't help. The 3rd day my 16 yr old and husband got into a physical dispute. That is the last thing that would of happened if I were able to get up and get these people straightened out. Its like my family went crazy and undone because I was down.
Another thing is ur not able to take deep breaths because ur lungs will make ur abs expand. IT HURTS TO BREATH. During the fight my husband and 16 yr old had I couldn't cry I couldn't speak loud I was loosing my breath because I was so upset that I broke down.
UGH this whole surgery was just a bad idea. I tired to finally wear some shorts on yesterday. It felt so weird. My stomach is numb, there no say if the feeling is ever going to come back. NO-ONE ever told me this was going to happen.... Ugh don't even try coughing, OH GAWD I'm a SNEEZER. I had to hold my breath so many time. Finally when I sneezed it felt like my ABS were torn apart sorta like someone took duct tape to my abs and pulled hard and all my skin tore and all I could feel is burning and wonder if everything is OK in there.
OK so does my tummy look FLAT? Sure it does. It does me no good if I cant wear my clothes cause the incision is so tender that it hurts like hell if anything rubs on it.
I still cant stand totally straight. It takes effort just to do so. Then my back lower hurts from just being hunched over. I also had lipo so it hasn't done me any good to just be laying on my back. Its tender and SUCKY ....
Cosmetic surgery hurt bad. I dint even know if I can join the police academy after this I mean wow when am I going to get better.
I have a doc appt on the 29Th. I'm tired of sitting home. Not going to the gym is killing me. I feel bloated, swollen and very unattractive. I hope he releases me to workout. I have to do something soon.
Ive also noticed that if I try to just chill I'm stiff. I do better when I move around but at the end of the day the burning kicks in and I have to wear my girdle to help with the swelling.
If anyone has more post op time than I do I would really love you for giving me some 411 ... will this get any better? anytime soon? HELP.. someone 411 PLEASE...
Bye for now
