Wore pants for the first time....

Hello All of you Lovely Ladies,

Yesterday, I attempted to wear capri pants for the first time (3 weeks post op this coming Saturday and all I have been wearing is oversized pjs)

I have lost 10 pounds but my stomach still looks like I gained 20 just in that area. Buttoning my pants was a work out in itself and I was only able to last an hour in the pants.

Also steri-strips still are not off and my doctor had told me in the hospital to leave them alone and let them come off themselves. I was curious if they should still be on this long so called doctor and nurse told me to remove them myself, they should have fallen off by now. Well, hair down their has started to grow back and over some of the strips. Taking them off was pure joy . My sons thought I was losing my mind - they heard me talking to myself and complaining while I was taking them off in the shower.

Just wanted to share my little stories with you all.

Hope everyones up coming weekend is great. Another hot and humid one here in Massachusetts. I AM SICK OF THE HEAT!!!!

Wore pants for the first time....

Hey scrap!
Yah, I make it about 5 minutes in my capris.
I have been wearing so many skirts lately, my kids think I am working again (I can move the waistband of the skirt up to over my bellybutton, so no pushy on swelly belly...I wear kinda flowy calf length skirts, so now they come to my knees).
My steri strips did not come off either. My doc told me take them off in 3-4 days, nurse said let them fall off in about ten. I took them off myself at about 8...a compromise. Unfortunately, my incision was not all the way closed up. So, I had to go back to doc for that.
Im all better now, but geez, when will the drama end?
