Weigh and Measure yourself pre-surgery

For those of you who are frequently monitoring your weight and size this has helped me tremendously.
*Please note that I had bikini abdominal incision so your timeline, bloating, weight gain, etc. will vary based off procedure and own personal body healing which is the most important thing to remember.

I weighed myself morning right before surgery and took several measurements all over my body. (neck, upper chest, mid chest, above navel, right below navel, hips, arms, upper thighs, mid thighs, and calves.)

When I got home I weighed myself again and knew my weight gain was all fluids from IV and meds. This really helped my calm my fears.
I've also measured my belly and its waaaaaaaay down. I had a fibroid that caused it to bulge. I've done this because while its smaller now, I suspect it will go up over the course of my recovery due to swelly belly, or things may go wonky if my ovaries decide to take a nap for a while. In the future these measurement and weight points will help alleviate any fears that might pop up because I will be able to really isolate what the issue is and know it probably will be temporary. I hope this helps

** I'm not sure how this effects those who have had ovaries taken
out as your journey will be different.
