Thanks for your response. I have gone back to tracking and working out trying to stay consistent. I feel like the weight is on its way back down. The holidays are really hard but I'm working on it!

I reread your message-if your doctor says you still have significant swelling, I suggest drinking lots of water with sliced lemons in it. This will help the lymph nodes release that extra fluid. Also eat lots of healthy smoothies with dark green vegetables. It does take a long time, up to a year for everything to get back to normal. I even had numbness on my abdomen for about 2 years before it improved.

Just use a straw when you drink lemon water to keep the acid away from your teeth.

I am so sorry I have not responded to this topic or this forum for quite some time.I will post another message to explain.

I had a abdominoplasty almost 10 years ago along with a hysterectomy. I had lost 50 pounds, plus from the enlarged uterus and cysts, I had a lot of loose skin. The surgeon at the time said if I did gain weight back, it wouldn't be in that area, but it would go somewhere. I gained back a lot, but not all of it. About 25-30 pounds. It went in to the area between my abdomen and my breast. I said at the time, that because it was so difficult to get it off, that I would never put myself in that position again. I was 54 years old. Now I am 64 years old, and am struggling to get 20 pounds off. It is much more difficult now than it was. It seems to be stuck like glue now. All I can say is, go back to what worked in the first place. It will only get more difficult, and you will kick yourself if you don't do something right now-yes, even before Christmas, start now. Think of how good you will feel in two weeks after Christmas that you ate healthy and are that much more happy about it.

I've gained back about 50 pounds emoticon and other than feeling disappointed with myself about that, there is nothing dangerous or scary about it as far as the tummy tuck is concerned. Skin is infinitely stretchable., and my scars look about the same.

Thanks to all my SparkFriends who have supported me through this journey to health!

Does anyone have any experience with weight gain after surgery? I had a tummy tuck in June and have gained 8 pounds since! My doctor says I still have significant swelling, but I'm kind of freaking out. I do not want to put weight back on after losing so much! Help with advice if you can please.
