Day 2 recovery.

I'm feeling really good today all things considered.  Last night I was in a lot of pain.  Guess what it was?  Gas.  Can you believe it?  Because I can't push a fart out I was in pain.  So I sat on the toilet for a while farted like crazy and that eased all the abdominal pressure and I slept like a baby!  Aren't you all happy to know that?

Looks like Marc will be making a trip to the drug store today!

When you wear these drains, the goal is for the drainage to go from all bloody to a straw color - the liquid is getting noticeably pinker so I think that's a good sign.  My temperature has been around 97, so no infection. 

Going to try a sponge bath today and to sit outside for a while.  I'm still really tired and any small thing wears me out, but I would think that would be normal.


  1. I am glad that you speak about the life style change you and Marc have made these last two years because that is what I am very impressed with when it comes to your changes. Anyone can drop weight, not everyone can make their mind up to change their life!!! You did and I got to watch you slowly become the new you....

    I am proud of you and your journey. You look great even two days after the surgery. You have a lot of people here excited for you... Wishing you a safe recovery.

    Please call or email if you need anything and that goes for Marc too!!!! Poor man's stuck at home with you all day... hehehe, Tabby

  2. LMAO! At least you still have your sense of humor through all the pain :)

    I'm glad to hear you're doing well!

  3. You've got me cracking up with your posts, and I'm 2 days post op from my tummy tuck, OW! I'm enjoying seeing how your healing is going so I can see that it will get better for me, too!
