Ok. So the apron skin is getting chafed and blistersy underneath but a search for underwear that protects it is coming up empty. Who recommends what? Ive got medicated spray powder and baby wipes but I live in the south and I garden. Help!

I never found much of anything that helped with the under pannus issues. My recollection is the yeast infections, irritations, smells, etc. got better as I neared and passed goal. Compression garments helped (I used running tights) keep the pannus from going one direction while I was going another.

Get yourself to a doctor and get your issues documented, as it will make your abdominoplasty (Tummy-Tuck) a "reconstructive" procedure for which insurance will pay, as opposed to "cosmetic" for which insurance will generally not pay. A history of failed attempts to deal with issues is important, or at least it was for me.

Good luck,

I second the idea to go to a doctor to document that it is a true medical issue. I don’t envy what you are going through now but you will hopefully be lucky in the long run that you do have enough of an issue that insurance will likely cover removing it. In the meantime, I have heard people mention the under armor products or similar.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
