3+ weeks update

Last week I felt too swollen so I went to get checked out. Plenty of testing later it was decided I have two tiny pockets of Fluid (seroma) but they are not nearly big enough to aspirate. The plan is to let them disparate naturally. Ok,cool.

But then I also noticed my belly button is slower healing than everything else (my incisions are completely healed) so through constant communication with my plastics team and hometown intervention it has been suspected that because I had previous hernia repair (with VSG and RNY) the blood supply to the umbilicus is compromised #wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh😭😭😭😭

What this means so far, IDK but my surgeon believes it will heal properly but much slower than anticipated. That reassurance was... reassuring. I'm not bothered as it does not hurt, is not infected etc.

Besides that hiccup it has an amazing aesthetic value πŸ˜‚ honestly everything has exceeded my expectations and its no big deal since I was prepared for a few speed bumps along the way

So swelling is gradually reducing thanks to wearing compression garments (or divine intervention) but I feel pretty good, like really really good.

The Tatas are no issue in fact they are beautiful and I could not be happier. I'm no longer taking Tylenol because I have no pain (Well ... just stiffness after sleeping laying too long) in fact I went to my niece's baby shower Saturday night. I worked hard and partied harder. I had forgotten I just had surgery when dancing and my boyfriend has to rein me in 😳

1 month + Update:

Life is progressing along, some days it like I never had surgery other days a sneeze leaves me incapacitated 😳

Belly button is coming along better now. My Primary swapped it for kicks and giggles to run a culture because she is that thorough. Turned out positive for an infection... no doubt from my inability to keep the area dry during showering.

No problem, messaged my surgeon to keep him in the loop and set up a follow up visit some time soon. Received a rx for antibiotics and I'm using a wound wash after I shower to clean the area as well as bacitracin. I am so glad I have a surgeon and primary who are consistently accessible.

Current weight today is 152 but 2 days ago ot was 162 because of Water retention and swelling 😳 this is exactly why you cant always trust the scale. I'm sure ill be something else tomorrow. Sadly with the water weight/ swelling I developed really nice curves and now they're gone again 😭

Bathing suit pics below (this suit didn't accommodate my breast pre surgery but now its slightly loose)

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
