Miss Leslie's Album
Album Description12-10-08- 5 weeks, 3 days. The worst is over, I hope! I had a bout of staph infection, a couple of heavily draining seromas, drains put back in, a few days of fever, horrible skin irritation and still lots of swelling. I've been on antibiotics for 5 days and I feel so much better. I hope I'll look a lot better soon!!
11-3-08- 4 days post-op. The hernia repair was really a lot of work for the surgeon and he was almost at the point of needing to completely rebuild my abdominal wall. My abdomen was opened up from the my sternum to past my navel and he had a heck of a time closing me up. When he would close the bottom, the top would bulge back out, then he got the top to close and the bottom would bulge and open up! He spent so much time with me opened up working on the hernia, that my organs got cold and my body temp got dangerously low. So, after almost 8 hours, he decided to finish up and not spend another 2-3 hours on my boobs. The surgeon says to wait at least 3 months for the breast lift.
9-8-08- New surgery Date!!! October 30th 2008! I have been getting my iron infusions. I've had 4 so far. 4 more to go and my levels should should be high enough to safely have surgery. Can't wait!
7-11-08- Surgery canceled!!! I'm anemic. I will be seeing a hematologist on Aug. 1st to address this issue.
I lost over 150 lbs with a weight loss procedure called the Duodenal Switch that I had on January 26, 2007. The massive weight loss left me with loss hanging skin all over my stomach, arms, thighs and my breasts were extremely saggy. I also developed a large incisional hernia. My first round of plastics on July 10, 2008 will include a full lower body lift with an anchor cut incision to cinch in my waist and thin my previous incision scar, the hernia repair and muscle repair, butt auto-augmentation, a breast lift with auto-augmentation. My second round of plastics will be a thigh lift, brachioplasty (arm lift) and possible silicone implants, under the muscle, if I feel I'm too small after the lift.
I am now a size 12 and I hope to be a size 10!
WISH ME LUCK!!
