Day 5

after( keep in mind im still super swollen)

So today is day 5 the 1st day I have felt well enough to blog. Today was also my 1st Dr. appointment and the unveiling of the tummy tuck. The past few days have been a bit of a blur I’ve been in and out of a drug induced coma trying to keep the pain at bay its actually not as bad as I expected! What I did read about but didn’t really give a lot of thought or worry to was the tightness of my abdomen, it burns, I cant stand up straight(which makes my back hurt) and its abit hard to breath kinda like someone is sitting on your belly. To me this is by far the worst part! OK back to my Doctors appointment today. I was super nervous not only because I was getting to see my tummy for the 1st time but because he was removing stitches and pulling my pain ball out( pain ball is a tiny tube that was sewn in to my groin area that administered pain medications) Anyway I was worried about that for absolutely no reason it didn’t hurt at all!!! When all the bandages came off to my pleasant surprise besides looking like I was beat in a gang initiation my tummy was amazingly flat no rolls, no stretch marks no tattoo! My Doctor said I looked awesome and its only going to get better! Hopefully I will be able to get my drains out next week(another pain in my ass) but I cant wait to see how things smooth out in the next few weeks!
