Just had my panniculectomy

Apr 22, 2010

Went in Monday April 19th for my panniculectomy and everything went well.  My surgeon said I will be really pleased with the outcome, he got everything tight and moved the belly button about 4 inches up.  Said he took 3 lbs of skin off.  Was supposed to be able to go home the next day but I ended up passing out the first night while on the toilet and had no pulse etc so they called a code blue and then took some blood and found out I needed a 2 unit transfusion.  So I got that and then went home wednesday afternoon.  I can walk around a bit just when standing I get pretty sore. I will go see the surgeon tomorrow afternoon and see if any of the drains can come out. I will take more pics later on.
