DaY 2: last night was pretty rough..trying to sleep on my back with the spanx and ab binder was sooooo hard.I was in pain..I read a lot of other smartlipo patients reviews that said they went this that but not me..I'm staying in my bed...I fell asleep and woke up to be in pain.thank goodness my bf was here to get me some tylenol..using the bathroom was sooooo hard I had to stand up.lol...so its 9am and I have a appt so my doc can look at my incisions.I tried to take off my spanx but its painful so I guess it takes 2.from what I saw its a huge difference.if this is how I look now wait till the 6mths mark...ur girl will b n a 2 piece...for what I paid so far its worth it..excuse my lingo I'm on my cell..can someone please tell me when doe the dizziness and nauseous feeling go away??I can't stand up with out feeling I have to vomit.
