Hi all! I was sleeved 8/28/2017 lost over 100 lbs. I had an anchor panniculectomy July 9th 2019. My surgeon did an AMAZING job!! Well I have some issues....
Yes I'm happy with my apron gone forever but all these other complications has me feeling very discouraged!! Has anyone else dealt with these things?????? Or am I the only one??
KEEP ON, KEEPING ON
Hey there, I'm only speaking from my personal experience (360 degree lower body lift with vertical flur de lis) so... I had MASSIVE swelling after surgery and couldn't fit into like any pants for a few weeks lol so I wouldn't worry about that. Now that being said, even with the massive swelling, at nearly a month post op I was still down weight. Most people I've noticed don't lose or gain weight after the surgery. Also....15 pounds of swelling? That seems like a lot.
Lastly, I am so sorry to hear about the wound breakdown. I have no experience with this so I can't comment, but I hope everything goes well on Monday and things get taken care of soon!
