Carpal Tunnel Surgery
I needed my second carpal tunnel release done and got it finally done after 3 years as I had to wait due to having to go under general anesthetic as the other procedure I could feel all the needles. Am very glad now its all done.
Doc Boyle has done both carpal tunnel release now and also a cancer taken off my lip A caring and very capable
After living with a belly most of my life I finally decided to do something about it. Yes I am a bit overweight, I've never been slim always heavier and more muscular, but it's only the belly that bothers me. I'm healthy and reasonably active and plan to be more active and outdoors once I'm on the flat side. I find the belly is a barrier to movement - so I want it gone!
I'll be having some work done on the overstretched muscles, hopefully that will give me back decent shape.
I've asked about minor lipo to go along with the TT but still awaiting confirmation on that. I'll be ok either way.
It's been a very quick process and in some ways much better because I would more than likely have chickened out if there was a long wait. After having so many abdominal operations I know what the recovery is like and am really not looking forward to the pain. I was glad to see quite a few women my age having the same op, and some excellent results.
5 days post op
Five days and feeling almost normal again, still stiff when I start moving and getting up out of bed or chairs means lots of arm use rather than abdomen but i'm definitely on the slide to home now :)
I ca honestly say that I know I'll still see a much more improved profile over then next week or two, theres still a fair amount of swelling so even from those original pics you can see a huge difference - and it's only going to get better.
Unfortunately I had a vertical cut as well which I can see was the better option - I have a very high belly button and have had many surgeries previously so the Dr wanted to make sure I was not going to have problems later by taking the slightly softer option. I heal well so I'm still hoping to wear a bikini at Christmas (I'm in Australia so it's hot then) even if I do have a slight scar.
Keep up the good work guys and stay positive.
After Drs visit at 2 months
Finally got to see the Dr, it seemed to take ages to come around. I took in a list of issues I was concerned about - and my husband for moral support and back up questions :) The BB bleeding was minor and he said it was a stitch that was coming up and nothing to worry about (phew). The soreness, which I was concerned was a lot for the length of time since surgery, he said wasn't particularly unusual and that I should just do what feels right for me. Wearing the supporting garment when I need to especially when exercising. He also confirmed that the bulges were still swelling but that there are two types... one is the tissue and one is the underlying muscle. I have both to a fairly large degree. He also explained that he had done substantial work on my muscles so that it was likely that the swelling would be around for a few months yet but that I would have a flat belly - eventually! I also had lipo on my inner thighs, this wasn't the result I was hoping for and he agreed that it wasn't the best so we'll look again at the next appt in April and if it is still not resolved he'll look at doing a revision. So, the twinges and pains I felt, he said, were nerves regrowing and that I wasn't doing anything to hurt myself but if I felt sore then I should take painkillers and wear supporting clothes. Now I'm feeling much better about things and with the end of christmas eating my swelling has gone down a bit too! Happy healing ladies!
Feeling better overall but some lipo revision might be needed
when I spoke to my dr he was very happy with my progress. He made a comment earlier that I make good scars, so I wasn't too worried about them. The lipo on the other hand isn't something I had any real experience with personally. So I assumed it would resolve quicker than the scar but apparently not... He will be re looking at the lipo - I had inner thighs done, for mobility rather than look! Hopefully he can fix the little pockets of fat at the top. I just hate that feeling when I walk, I've always had it for as long as I can recall. In the heat here it can be very uncomfortable and sometimes rashes appear from sweating and rubbing. At the moment the rubbing still happens but only at the very top - so fingers crossed that will be fixed in April.
All my pants and skirts are too big!
What a lovely problem :) now that the swelling is lessening I've really noticed the difference in my clothes. I still have the action man bulge :) but that's slowly flattening too. I've had to tie up my waists on my pants just to keep them up and my skirts now sit on my hips.
Having a flat lower belly is such a different feeling, I hadn't realised quite the change it would make. I'm a pretty stocky, muscular build and have never had a flat belly - it's amazing!
