Thighplasty and Posterior Lift Week 2 Update

Two weeks ago I had a thighplasty and posterior back lift to get rid of the remaining extra skin I had on my body after losing 125 pounds.

I can’t believe I had major surgery 2 weeks ago! I feel 100% mentally and about 80% physically. I’ve been completely off heavy duty pain meds for a over a week. I have also been off of Tylenol for a good four days now. The only thing that is limiting me physically is my ability to bend and the freshness of my incisions. 

First time sleeping in an actual bed!

On day 12 I got a lymphatic massage, I highly recommend them! I noticed an immediate decrease in swelling and could feel my circulation increase throughout the massage. 

On day 13 I graduated from the lift chair to sleeping in an actual bed! It’s plenty comfortable enough for me to sleep on my sides or my back. ⁣⁣

It is still most comfortable to stand to use the restroom and use my GoGirl, I can’t put on my socks yet, and my right foot is still swollen (getting better though!) but I feel pretty much back to normal otherwise. ⁣

⁣Here  are a couple photos of my incisions from when they changed my tape at my 2 week appointment. Keep in mind these are very fresh wounds and as they heal they will smooth out and turn into tiny white lines. 

Before/After of my Left Thigh

The scale popped back up over the weekend because my appetite returned and my food intake increased. I’ve lost 3 pounds since surgery.

I can’t wait to run again but I have a lot more healing to do before that can happen. I am going to continue to focus on optimal nutrition, drinking lots of water, and trying my best to facilitate the healing process. ⁣
