Hi Nessa - I thought about you 3 or 4 times yesterday - how shocked to see your beautiful face on todays posts!! Sorry about the ulcer and marriage, but I know you will overcome both.
I'm 11 weeks post fleur de lis abdominoplasty & brachioplasty. Had a nasty open wound from tissue necrosis - it was a bummer. The most painful surgery I've ever had (and I've had 5 other open abdominal procedures.) My open wound is closed now, but my belly is achy, hard as concrete. I have pictures (click on my avitar photo or name and look at before & after. There are also "open wound" pics that I shared on the plastic surgery forum, but they are gross, so you may not want to look at those.) I think I'm done with plastic surgery. I'm gonna let boobs, but and thighs sag and hang
I made goal just before my 2nd surgiversary and have gone down another 7 or so pounds. I'm OK where I'm at.
I can't go to a OH Conference this year - just none close enough and I don't feel strong enough to fly, carry luggage, etc. This open wound really lengthened my recuperation time.
Don't be a stranger. There aren't many posting that are 2 years out. I still come on the board daily. I need the motivation & encouragement.
Again - so glad to hear from you. I want pictures!!
