Final surgery, 1 week post-op

Back to appropriately cropped photos of me with no clothes on. Oh come on, I was fully dressed last week. Give me a quick minute to give a surgery update and then we can get back to healthiness topics!

Friday marked already 1 week post-op from my last, and final surgery. I had an appointment with my surgeon, Dr. Gervais and he took the tape off the incisions. They put tape on the incisions for a couple of reasons. First, it helps protect the raw incisions. Also, while the skin is beginning to heal back together, the tape holds the skin together on top of the sutures itself. It basically reinforces the sutures.

Now that the tape is off, I felt really sore all weekend. Much more sore than I felt the first week. My left arm feels more sore than my right, which is odd because my right always bothered me more after the 1st surgery. Dr. Gervais advised at least one more week of extra relaxing – he stressed laying low and not trying to be too active when I have to.

Aside from the slightly more prominent pain, I have to tell you I LOVE THE RESULTS. It is absolutely amazing and while it isn’t perfect, remember, that isn’t what I wanted. I just wanted the skin to not hang over and irritate/pinch me. I am beyond elated at the results of this surgery and looking forward to making a full recover from all the surgeries I had.

I know these pictures are slightly booby-ish, hang with me, okay?

In the first photo, you can see Dr. Gervais extended the top incision down further and also extended the bottom incision laterally. They don’t connect but are much closer. In this picture, you can also see how well my scar has healed down my arm from the first surgery. It’s already starting to lighten up.

The next two photos show my arm as I lower it. You’ll notice there is no more excess skin to begin to bulge or, when I wear a bra, to hang over the bra band.

So another week or so of relaxing and then, Dr. Gervais said I can begin to be active. He stressed beginning to be active doesn’t mean jumping right back into working out but I can start being active slowly with walks and stuff, until I work my way back up.

As we finished the appointment, Dr. Gervais and I double high-fived each other, sharing huge smiles and both excited at the results of the three surgeries. I never anticipated having the 2 additional surgeries but each one, individually, were worth it. I love the results and love the imperfect body I have.

    Jen, How tall are you? My highest weight was 240 as well, now I am 210 and losing. I am 5’3 and seeing your surgery journey, I’m starting to wonder if I will need it as well when I reach my goal. I wonder if my insurance would even cover this elective (yet necessary) surgery. Or maybe it’s not considered elective…

  10. Some of us love the updates to you do not have preface these posts! You are doing great and I am happy you are recovering well.

    Iggy will be so happy when you are able to start walking. I am sure he will be willing to join you on those walks.
