That's great! I was a little nervous the day of surgery, but all of the nurses, doctors, and the anesthesiologist I talked to before surgery were so great that they put me at ease. Your day will be here before you know it!

Ladies, make sure to wear a sports bra post-op! I wore one all yesterday and took it off before bed and never put it back on. The lack of support was adding pressure to core, making me more sore throughout today. I put it back on a few minutes ago and already feel much better.

I’m January 10th! I was hoping to get mine done over our winter break but it didn’t work out. But I’m happy that I at least got a date!
I had my surgery yesterday. Got home earlier this afternoon. Im up moving and feel pretty good overall.

I did. I wore it for the first day or two but then found it hurt me more than helped :-)

I am not sure I will be able to wear one because my surgeon is sending me home with a ON Q bulb. He said it will come out my top incision.

Yeah! I had one shake—not going to be able to meet the goal of three, but it's progress!

Had my surgery on Monday, when I came to didn’t know what I had on right away but found the stomach binder hurt but I managed to keep it on for most of my stay to help keep swelling down. Did find more comfort when I did take it off middle Tuesday night

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
