Fainting After Liposuction

I had liposuction on my thighs 10 days ago. I am 5'7" and before surgery, 180lbs, 29 years old. 4600cc were removed. Since the surgery, I am having terrible difficulty fainting when removing the compression garment to shower. The only way I can regain consciousness is to lay flat. During the day, while wearing the garment, I feel very out of it/groggy/no energy. I am getting worried that this is not improving and wondering if the doctor may have taken too much. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? How long before my body can "replenish" what was taken? I'm getting very discouraged. My recovery is nothing like I thought it would be.
