Thanks Julie for the info....my OB told me that the swelling above the incision, kinda like a shelf may never go away or it just may take a few years, great huh? the only way to fix it is with tummy tuck I've heard. I"ll never be that thin that I will care so not too worried about it.
the incision site feels very strange though, it still is painful too touch but at the same time feels numb? very strange. It has gotten much more painful in the last week but I think that is because I am doing alot of stuff. My OB never told me how long that lifting restriction thing was for so I stopped at about 2 weeks and have been lifting many heavy items. at least the stuff I can, my muscles are so weakened from all the bedrest i can't lift that much.
gosh, 8 weeks sounds like a long time to feel good enough to work out. I just want it all to go away, don't mean to whine or anything, I'm just so ready to get a move on with my life and get in shape and wear something besides sweats, yuck[xx(] nothing fits and its really annoying. I hate feeling like a slob, it is not helping my moods.
