Holy cow I am so so bruised. Now that I am no longer feeling faint at the site of frankentummy, I've been able to really examine it and my progress. When I took off Myrtle the Girdle today before my shower I even tried on a pair of bikini bottoms to see exactly where the scar sat. With swelling these bottoms hit right at the scar line.
I am most sore today from hunching, my lower back muscles are screaming right now with my support garment off (it's in the dryer.)
Oh-I keep forgetting to tell you guys, I DID have muscle repair work needed, my muscles had separated all up the middle so he fixed that. I kind of knew it - there were certain ab exercises I just couldn't do before, even though I was strong enough to do much harder things.
Today has been a good day, I really feel a lot closer to normal. Thanks for all the love and comments!
