Topic: RE: Update after my surgery!
I just wanted to stop in and catch you up on how I am doing. My surgery was last Thursday morning....I'm still a little blurry with all of the times that things happened, but when I went back for surgery, my wonderful dear surgeon, Dr. Jack, told my dh that it would be about 4 hours. After 4 1/2 hours my dh got worried...the surgery ended up taking right at 6 1/2 hours!!!! I could not believe it!!! Fortunately there were no complications, just a picky surgeon!!! He wanted everything to look good!
He started with my breasts, did the reduction and lift (my dh says that "the mountains went to molehills!")....they are small...but I was a 36 LL, so, anything would look small to me! Then he moved to my revision tummy tuck and hip revision....then to my liposuction...and can I tell you...I am a week out today, and still having pain in my liposuction area!!! UGH! It is much rougher than I expected!
Right now, I am okay with the way I look, but can not wait for the swelling to go down...Let's see if I can recap my losses....
Pre RNY(2005) - 325
Pre Panniculectomy(5/2007) - 225
Pre Reduction(10/2007) - 215
1 week post reduction - 205
....just 5 more lbs...I really wanna be under 200!!!
