  1. My swelling was minimal - just tightness mainly. It was sore but I'd do it again without question!
  2. A lot of people do go home earlier. Just make sure you have some good pain meds and help at home. I could have gone home yesterday but I didn't want to go home with drains in. My ps was happy with my drainage but it was a little high so kept me in one more night. I had a huge gap (8cm) as well. You will be ok but just make sure you have that "round the clock support".
  3. TT with MR and hernia repair. The muscle repair was definately the most painful part. 2 nights should be fine if no MR
  4. Hi all, Well it's all done and I'm pleased with the results so far. There is swelling to go down but a great result is around the corner. A quick recap is day 1 - horrible, nausea from pain meds and headache, day 2 better - up walking and had a shower, still hurts but pain under control with oral meds - much better, day 3 drip out, shower and walked a little further - feeling better each day, today, long shower, pain meds spaced out more, walking more and getting a little straighter today! posting a private album with befores and afters so send me a fr to see ?
  5. I think you would need to ask the surgeon directly. Maybe give one or two a call?
  6. The description of the petition is the first thing so instead of protesting changes to tummy tuck. Maybe it should say something like help change the lives of women suffering painful conditions following pregnancy?? It needs to be short enough for a heading but with some detail so people sign it. suggestions would be great ?
  7. Working on it girls! So firstly I need a short description of the petition. E.g. Help change the lives of women suffering from painful conditions following pregnancy suggestions please?
  8. cupcake - isn't there a site to organise a petition? I thought you mentioned it in a previous post?
  9. Who is interested in a petition/writing a letter to minister for Health?
  10. Hi Pearl. The new changes are dreadful. Muscle separation is real and painful. The operation to have the muscle repair is something you would not take lightly and for most women it's about pack pain and weakness of the core which causes medical issues. There is a post on this forum by cupcake called no more rebates where we are discussing the issue and starting a petition. I'm thinking of writing a letter. I believe you can write to Medicare to ask them to review your situation and request they cover you under an item number. It can't hurt. I'd start there. You have a genuine medical need. If Medicare agree then your health fund will cover you.
