    First day post surgery. Dr says a bit over 4lbs of skin was removed. Had to get a second drain put in today. Here's the pic of my 1 day old scar.

    Update: Day 5 recovery. Anesthesia pump removed and completely off of painkillers. (Ouchie, but not unbearable). For the first time in nearly 20 years I sat up and my stomach did not cover my groin and half my thighs. Still bloated, in some pain (more soreness than actual pain).

    It looks great.

    Take care. You did an amazing job of getting to the pre surgery stage! Congrats on the new tummy.
