Ok…..one other thing I forgot to mention. Elastic Pants. Yup. I had to go get more a few days ago. I’ve been living in sweats and elastic waist band pants and I finally had to break and get some more. I think it will be a few weeks before I can manage jeans with this tummy tuck.
On a positive note, I did get my last drain out. It’s always nice to see my surgeon and her assistant. It did hurt a little but she did it very (did I say very) quickly. I think it hurt more immediately after than it did while she did it because she did it so quick. Dr. Kalinowski is awesome. I was very worried since it had been in for three weeks. I was convinced it had become one with my body. It wasn’t so bad. It’s so good to be free of the drain.
My 4 year old had a party. “The blood thing is gone!” She celebrated. So did I. One more door to close on the cancer reconstruction phase.
