This is me literally moments after the surgery. I'm laying on the surgery bed and the Professor says 'smile' and I did! The other picture is of the fat they took from my legs, all 4 litres of it! The red fluid below isn't blood, but fluid with a few drops of blood in.
These photos were taken the day after surgery and before flying home. I remember being quite shocked by my legs but putting a brave face on. I was thinking oh god, what if it stays like this? I had been warned by the Professor that there was a chance that may happen but thankfully, the skin has retracted bag. I guess at this point it was like emptying a plastic bag and expecting it to just bounce back!
