1 week!

I survived the 1st week! I am hoping that everyday gets better. It has to right? lol I remember when I researched the DaVinci procedure, I came across a video on Youtube. It was patients talking about their experiences with the DaVinci. It was from the makers of the machine so I am sure it was a little biased. Anyways, 1 lady was talking about how the day after she felt like she had just an ouchie. Um, now that I am on the other side it is not an ouchie! LOL I could laugh but it would hurt! Here's to week #2!

Re: 1 week!

You are right. I am on 4th week now. Each week has been noticeably better for me. The first week I was accomplishing the basics - sleeping, progressing through eating etc. The second week I started doing things for myself, saw more flexibility return to my stomach, incisions healed better. The third week everything was easier and my core returned to normal even more. By the 4th week my "insides" seem to have settled - can turn on either side comfortably, don't feel the hard block on the right side of my stomach at all, etc.

I am with you that they found some really ideal cases to put on their videos. I don't question that some women can do it, but it seems to be the minority that recovers sooo quickly.

Happy Healing!
