Cha Cha lift ALSO INCLUDED!

TMI warning. Now is your time to back out. If you've already seen the operating room pictures with my tummy in a bucket, this won't be any worse than that. For those choosing to continue...

I have been having a little bit of difficulty urinating. Usually when I sit to pee, the flood gates open, and viola I'm finished. Now, when I sit to pee, it's a slow trickle, definitely no flood gate action. So, when my surgeon's nurse called to see how I was doing, I told her about this new development. Long story short, I guess when you get this surgery, it pulls up your cha cha. Duh, why didn't I think of that? So when your cha cha is pulled up, it can affect the short urethra that women have, causing the trickle VS flood urination. Ok. Not something I thought about before surgery.

I am also swelling like a mother f*cker. I can't even get my loose pants on. I am living in elastic banded pants. And, with all this massive swelling, I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the BRUISING I have. I'm even bruised on my cha cha. I made Mr. W come into the bathroom to verify that this was not how I previously looked down there. It's been awhile, but I don't remember any purple cha cha-ness. Maybe that's why I can see it, it's now at my belly button! Yes, that's an over exageration, but wow, that's a high cha cha I've got going on.

I'm finished. That's all the bitching I'll subject you to for one day. I KNOW I'LL BE REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THIS IN LESS THAN ONE MONTH. I have to admit that I do feel better than I did yesterday, mostly because I'm over that stupid stomach viral thing, and I also never mentioned that I got my period the day of surgery and now that's finishing up as well. Things are definitely getting better, despite my complaining. Thanks for all your love and support. Sorry about the TMI and grossing everyone out with those OR pictures, but they are an important part of my story. Ok, I'm really all done. Love you all.

  1. All very normal - cha cha lift and cha cha bruising - big ass purple nasty ass bruising. Take pictures every few days - you'll be amazed at how much you change each day and you'll never regret having them. Hang in there - swelling will go away and then it'll come back and go away one day for good. I promise. Smooches!

  3. How exciting...and scary too. Glad you got the cha cha lifted too. Did you have just the skin removed or the muscles tightened too???
