@Stella S Yes, I'll have 2 drains for a bit. The doc was very informative/ realistic with me which I like. 19 days to go...

How are you doing?


@BlueCrush Thanks for asking. Honestly alot better than I anticipated. I've never really been in pain with this, just sore. No issues getting up and about and doing little things for myself as long as I take it easy. Cut way back on pain meds too. Can't believe how good things look so far. I'm super stoked with the results. Hoping my drains come out at Monday's postop. I'm looking forward to being able to snap some pics to share soon.

Glad you are doing well. Keep the drains if they are collecting. Swelling and absorbsion take 10 x as long as drains Yes - for me it was great to have skin that fit my body. Enjoy!

Good to hear! I was the same with more soreness instead of pain. Don't be in a rush to get those drains out. You'd rather have them for a few weeks versus getting a seroma! I had 4 drains total. 2 of them came out after about 10 days. 1 came out at about a week, and one was in for almost 3 weeks! I had to keep them in until draining less than 10ml per 24hr period.
