My PS told me that I would be the same size after my lift but it looks smaller to me. I was thinking maybe that was because I am still so swollen on my new side. She told me that it would be another month or two before all the swelling will be down and we can "finish" it. It will be interesting to see in the end. I LOVE my flat tummy! I haven't had a nice tummy since I had my very large babies 30 years ago. Please keep an eye on your infection. I ended up with staph infection after my mast and it was horrible. I also think it is a good idea that they are leaving your drain in. I had to have my "area" drained with a big needle 4 or 5 times after my surgery (before the staph set in) because it kept collecting fluid. That was no fun either. Did you go back to work? Let your body "talk to you" and don't do more than you should. I was really lucky in the regard that my work was really supportive and I had many "babysitters" who kept their eyes on if they thought I looked tired and needed to go home. Anyway, please please take care of yourself and really watch that infection. Thinking of you always even though I don't post often.
