Can you believe it’s been 16 weeks since my November surgery? Time has gone so quickly!
I feel about 99% back to normal. I still feel a tug when I move the wrong way in bed but for the most part, I don’t even think of my incisions anymore. Here are the scars:
The scar on my arm is starting to lighten up a bit. It feels like a small rope so I keep massaging it really hard to break up the scar tissue. It might not help much but at least I’m doing something. My stomach scar is very flat, some areas you can’t even feel the scar. The color is much more red than the arm but it’s covered up 99% of the time so that isn’t bothersome.
You want to know the best thing in the entire world? My clothes fit so well! My arms fit into shirts and my stomach doesn’t hang over my pants anymore. In fact, the weather has been so nice as of late, I wore a tank top out to dinner with Carlos last night and didn’t even care about showing off my arms! People will probably always be able to see a little bit of my arm scar from behind but it doesn’t bother me. It’s actually much easier to deal with that than the skin.
I still can’t believe I had the surgery and it’s surreal that I’m going back in for another surgery tomorrow. I’ll be glad when this is all over and I can just wedding plan!
