Diary of an abdominoplasty - 6 weeks on

I can hardly believe it has been six weeks since my surgery. It has felt like a looooong road to recovery, but six weeks - hey that's not a lot of time in the scheme of things.
I can honestly say it has only been this week I have started to feel things have settled. 
Not wanting to gross anyone out, but I have had 'the ooze' for 5 weeks. (Lymph fluid oozing and in some cases gushing out my belly button. eeeewwwwwww!) I have had to resort to taping breast pads and cut up nappies over my leaky button. 
Also, I can tell you wearing Spanx 24/7 for 5 weeks is like 5 weeks of being a human sausage!
BUT, I now have an after pic which I am pretty happy with. When I look at the before, I just can't believe how bad my poor tum was. I feel like I am back to the old me and it's so great!
So, in retrospect, would I do it again?????
Heck yes!

So happy to be able to pick up my baby again - it's been a long 6 weeks!

Before (eck!)




  1. dearest jo, i had no idea you had this problem.. you poor darling. but hey wow! what a wonderful difference! hooray for surgery! well done on getting through it and hope to see you, the boys and your new tum bery soon :) xxxx

  2. Thanks my lovely Lorns. Need to see you - miss you chick!

  3. Hi Jo, I thought about you the other day and thought 'I must check and see how you're going'. I didn't realize it has been such a difficult healing process... I've just read back over the last few of your posts and read the 5 day after surgery post - I really felt for you. I'm so so glad everything has finally settled now with your tum. The difference is amazing! x

  4. Your before and after pics are amazing. I can bet you went to a very skilled surgeon because the result of your tummy tuck surgery looks great after 6 weeks.

    Some similar pics convinced I found here convinced me to have breast augmentation a while ago and I'm sure your pics would convince any woman that having tummy tuck worth all the money in the world.

  5. Please add good good information that would help others in such best way.This post is exactly what I am concerned. we need some more reliable information.
