Had my Hernia repair & Panni Dec 5th



Recommended Posts

Had my third Excess skin removal surgery Dec 5th. Have lost over 270 pounds and finally had my hernia repair and 10 pounds of my tummy skin removed. Spent 1 night in the hospital and was up out of bed within 12 hours of my surgeries. Was told my hernia was twisted and encased and the Dr did not want to use mesh because of possible infection. He had to take my belly button for the same reason. I have been taking Tylenol extra strength and tramadol. Have 2 drains and had a followup yesterday. Was told I am healing well but still need to keep the drains in. Was tired yesterday from the trip to and from the followup but overall I am doing better than when I had my Brachioplasty in March.

Well I looked in my mirror, thought I looked like a cross between road kill and train wreck. As I lose, my face is looking gaunt, my neck is getting wrinkled like a Tortoise and I thought my skin tone was looking waxy gray. Then I visited my surgeon in Columbus, he felt I was losing down gradually, and my skin tone wasn't all bad for as long as I had stretched it out. And my skin is fine, just Midwestern stayed inside because of the coldness. Said I'm sure you'll pick up a little tan in spring, I'm Celtic, sometimes all I can hope for is a new batch,of freckles or fresh rust spots. But if Big Kahuna is happy, guess I will be too.

And alas, the only way I will get skin removal is if they would accept pictures of breakdown, fungal infections. Are pictures going to help?
