I am now 11 weeks post LBL, and happily recovered very nicely. I was surprised that the surgery was not very painful at all, much less than WLS. I just had discomfort mostly caused by being in bed and the fact that I had to stay on my back for so much. In fact the most pain was the drains. The best news is that I no longer have the loose skin, and my tummy is flat! And the fact that I am now down another 18 lbs following is wonderful.
One week ago, I had a bilateral brachioplasty/BA. Again recovery has been uneventful, and although bothersome, much better than I anticipated. I am just amazed by my new body, and very happy. Feel free to email for any questions. JG
