These aren't graphic, but do show how violent abdominoplasty is! So don't keep reading if you don't want to see!
6 days post surgery, and I am feeling pretty good. I still have to set my alarm for 4 AM so I can take my pain pills. If I go too long in the same position with no pills, I am in too much pain when I wake up. Other than that, I am starting to feel human again.
The swelling is awful. And what is worse, one side is more swollen than the other. I have an appointment on Thursday, so I plan to ask him about that then. Still thinking drains will stay in at least another week. I am still draining quite a bit of fluid.
I'm alone with the kids today, and doing fine! Thank goodness!!
