I got my arnica Montana , this is for the bruising and muscle soreness.from the herb shop. I also got the bromelain, this is for inflammatory response. I have the protein shakes. Next , is my pre op is Thursday ...I got two extra garments from ebay or amazon.com found great prices on vedette garments. I got the underpass for the bed, I really don't want to mess up my good sheets with bloody fluids...yuk. I still got to get my Gatorade .....oh , must not forget the soup....easy fixings ....make sure you get your garment in the size you need , and a smaller size as well. Well, that's for now.

OK went to pre op today. I didn't get to see Dr. J. That's OK. He was in surgery. The drive wasn't so bad. I just learned I ordered the wrong compression suits. I need to ones with the butt open. Do I keep what I have and just cut the butt part out? I have to get more pineapple fruit and or juice, its a natural anti-inflammatory and tart cherry juice. I did get lots of Gatorade. That's done. Can't take any arnica until I've finished all of the meds, which is 7 days. OK. I asked the nurse today about what to do after surgery and going home. She told me to lay in the back seat on my stomach , or bend over the front seat with your face in the seat. OK. I was instructed to wear my garment for 6 weeks. After the first week i'll switch down to a smaller garment. Wow ..23 hours a day with the garment on. Period., with 1 hours free. Really. ok. I got to get my mind right. Anyway, I went to my primary Dr. for my medical clearance. I had to pay $175 for the office visit , blood work bla bla bla.. I have private insurance, but it won't cover that. Hopefully my insurance will cover my meds. I'll tell you how that goes, when I drop off my prescriptions. Just a few more days to go. I also asked about me losing weight. I was told that they might need to do my inner thighs ...no extra cost....I'm already paying extra for back fat and bra area....It is what it is.

Just got the dial anti bacteria soap for tomorrow shower. Tomorrow is the day. Groceries done. Roast and greens done. Just want everything to be good. I'm excited, and a bit nervous. I keep looking at my wish pictures. The nurse said I needed 1000 units of vitamin c . Got that, done. I just thought of something. If you found a large inner tub, the kind that people use at the beach or vacation, couldn't you use that and put your body into. THat way your butt would never touch the bed. Sounds good to me, just a thought.

The night after the surgery was the worst. I vomited 3 times. Sleeping on stomach is a challenge. My neck hurts . I have no appetite for food. Taking the garment off and washing , then drying and getting back on again is totally exhausting . I don't recommend doing too much the day after surgery. I was very nauseous. Day 2 post op was a little better. I still have not had a bowel movement . My co workers came over and gave me a enema. They had jokes, but I got to do what I got to do. Today is day tree post I feel much better. I accidentally knocked my drain out. I called the office, they told me to use a maxi pad and tape it . So far so good.

Ok now it's been 10 days post op. I can fit into the two other garments I bought . My ring finger and baby finer have a numb and tingling sensation . My hands feel a little cold. I hope this goes away soon. My sons have been doing my massages for me. The waist area is very sore , but I got to do what I go to do. Still taking 1000 units vitamin c and a multivitamin and pain meds. I'm still extremely constipated. 2 enemas later I still couldn't go.

Ok today I got a smaller garment from lipo express I went from the XXl to a large. They gave me a discount...$130 plus tax = $139.00 really. I still have the tingling in my last two fingers on both of my hands. I'm down to 168 pounds. I'm still wearing my garment 23 hours straight. My back still is sore. I just want the injection holes to get lighter. The dark spots are really bothering me. I just want my stuff to be right , ya know. Monday I go for my 5 1/2 week dr. Jimerson visit. Now I have to get jeans to fit the booty. Levi's 529, PZI, and 917 from limited. I've been trying anyone curvy jeans. I've realized that I need mis waist jeans...this is exhausting...but I want to look good...now I have to get size medium coats and sweaters, and belts. I'm just saying.

Ok I'm three months out. I went to see dr. j today. I still my side a little smaller. Everything else is good. So, I'll schedule another surgery date to do more lipo. I want to be right . I was told my touch was free , but I'll have to pay for a type of anesthesia . $500 ok. Free under local... Uumm a no. I can take pain, but lipo under a local is nothing nice. I did it once under twilight. I would not recommend it. Anyway, I'll post my three month pics. Dr. j told me no worries , I know what you want. That made my day.
