Waiting to go in was extremely exciting and nerve wrecking.
Going to visit mama right after she was done is a must. Not knowing was probably one of the hardest parts, because her surgery turned out a bit longer than they had anticipated.

|Week 1 - Extremely bloated|
Healing process was a lot quicker than I had expected, at least from the looks of it. They blew CO2 gas into my belly so the layers of skin, muscle and tissues will separate and they can go in to see my organs during the laparoscopic operation.
I was told that my incisions under the skin were completely different from what it looks like on the outside (pictures). There is a cut from the middle of my C-section up to my belly button. My artery, vein and ureter are clipped together with titanium sutures.
Anyway, we just have to rest up lots and be very careful when getting up and lifting things.
|Week 2 - All stitchy and scabby|
|Week 5 - One of the incisions' already disappeared!|
Unfortunately my mother would not allow me to take photos of her incisions healing because she is ashamed of it (it's a bit over 6 inches above her right pelvic bone). But she's healing quite fine, just a lot slower. She's still at that bandage peeling state.
