I just got back home and am in my bed now with a lot of pillows behind me.. . I am so swollen. Feel as if I'd burst and burn at the same time. I have no bruises though, only where the drains were in (they took them out last night). I'm swollen but they said it's good. They were all super happy so far with my results but all I see and feel is squishy fatty eewness. Swelling is gross. They had me on special watch the first night cause I stopped breathing, so they put me on the breathing machine. Moving sucks etc. .. but that's all normal I guess.

I am so glad you are okay. Stopping breathing - that is very scary! You are going to feel blah for a few days, but it will get better. This is a much different recovery feeling than the upper body stuff you had done, and a body lift is even more invasive as a tummy tuck, so give it time.
I am so happy you checked in.
