Somebody mentioned a "ledge"... are you speaking of the top part of your incision? Mine is like a mogual on a ski slope. I want it to go away...somebody please tell me it goes away....I need good news....

Going to have a pouty pitty party...Ang
This is a wonderful group of ladies! I'm not moody, but I adore these ladies in this thread. We are all close to the same timeframe and have developed a good friendship.

"The Ledge" yes, it's that horrible thing above my incision. I hate it!!!! It wasn't there before surgery and even though I no longer look 4-5 mths pregnant due to swelling, I still can't comfortably wear my capris or jeans. I've decided the Dr created it, he should bear the expense of getting rid of it! He has no sense of humor and doesn't seem to be very forthcoming about accepting his responsibility to my figure. I want my flat tummy back! Honestly, had I know what was going to happen, I would have looked into a mini tummy tuck to prevent it. I'm very vain and really do despise it. It doesn't help that I've been told no ab workouts which I'm beginning to think won't work anyways. I think they displace layers of natural fat and that's what creates it. Maybe not, since I have always been able to see my hipbones laying down and I still can't even though I weigh the same and still have swelly belly in the evenings.

Sorry Morti, I am actually this week 7 months since my surgery and everyone from my week talks about that little ledge they have whether they are overweight or skinny. I know the swelly belly will go away but not so sure about the little ledge.

Kaftsnana - sorry you are dealing with so many symptoms. I don't have any of the menopause ones yet and not looking forward to them.

Dolphin - Have you tried melatonin - it is a natural vitamin and sometimes will actually help me get 5 or 6 hours of sleep straight which is incredible for me.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend! Tomorrow is Friday! Yippee!!!!

Ah Morti... hang in there! But I gotta tell ya, doing the tummy tuck wouldn't have made a difference... I had one. In fact, it may have made your swelling worse.

I agree, Morti. I think I will bring that very fact up at my appt. The ledge thing wasn't there before so it is Dear Doctors fault. I feel you with the hip bone thing... I have always been slim and would really like to stay that way. I actually weigh less right now, but I am only about 3 weeks out, so my appetite is still not back 100%.

Poconowoman...does the ledge *at least* shrink a bit? Just an itty bitty bit?

Thank you for the info. I spent a little over an hour reading back in this thread and you ladies do seem wonderful...and made me laugh a few times. Best of luck to everyone and I hope work and recovery are as painless as possible . Have a super Friday!

Poco & WBPF - Not fair, you just ruined my illusions! Still, if it doesn't going away. I'm having a plastic surgen remove it. (Told you I'm Vain! ) Honestly, Danny and I've already discussed it, and I will make it go away one way or another at some point. Once I can exercise at the leve I was prior, I'll have a better idea about what I can do about it naturally.

Sassy - It does shrink, but I'm convienced without intervention, it'll never be gone. I can even see it through my bbikini bottoms

Hi Ladies -
Agreed weekends go too fast. We should lobby for l-o-n-g-e-r ones - say 4 days all the time! I used to have a job where we worked 4 days on and 4 off and I LOVED it! It meant working some weekends (and I wouldn't want to work Sundays now) but . . . it was great.

Hope you all are doing ok.
