Feeling better finally got my appetite back thank god for my mom ive been eating lots of protein and nutritious foods and lots of gatorade and peeing around the clock i have a funnel so i it helps me pee not on my garment . I still feel stiff but im slowly getting my energy back , the lord gives me strength i dont know how anyone can get through this recovery alone i know for sure i couldnt i need my moms help for alot of things, so my heart goes out to those ladies that go through this alone. Got my massage schedule for monday at 2pm wish me luck ladies my tummy feels tender, then imma see if ghurani sends me a copy of my before and after pics so i can show you girls my new body :) thank you again for your prayers and well wishes happy healing :)

Todays my first massage im soo nervous wish me luck will take a percocet before .

Finally resting in my bed.. What a long day and car ride.. Got my first massage wasnt so bad but it did hurt a lil but i was expecting worse. I only had half of a percocet because i cant handle a whole one makes me nauseous. I met two beautiful young ladies today ms yolo and newbooty13. Its so nice to share this journey and pain and happiness with others going through the same. No doubt ghuranis wrk is amazing . At my massage cecila found a burn from cannula on my tummy so they prescribe me a cream for that so i pray it heals great. Going to see the doc tomorow to see the status on my drains hopefully he can at least take the back drain out or should i say my "tail" lol. Then wedsday my second massage and smaller garment they ran out today i need compression .

Today had my second massage wasnt bad at all i...

Today had my second massage wasnt bad at all i felt like new after. Got a smaller garment im a medium now but i cant put it on till a week from now cuz i have a burn on my tummy from cannula and rami doesnt want me to irritate . Hes such a wonderful caring doctor. Healso took out my back drain it didnt hurt at all im so relieved no more drain . But i still have the front drain on because i still have more than 20cc fluid a day so im stuck with it till next wednesday ughhhh sux. Im walking a lot better , less waddling.

Girl tell me how you doing im so stiff on my waist and butt i walk like a penguin lol taking off the garment is the worst my stomach is the worst im dreading those massages.. Have yu gotten massages yet?
  • Reply
Yes I got only my first massage. The lady that did it for me said I did really well with it because most girls go in there freaked out and don't try to just relax and let her work. I was nervous about the massages cuz of a lot of the things i heard on RS, but personally I love massages. So I was like let me just go in there, enjoy it, and scream if I have too lol. I didn't do any screaming. But that was only my first massage. I was supposed to get my 2nd massage and I waited for over an hour and noone came out to get me so I left. I'm looking for someone else now. I'm hoping to have it done the second time tomorrow. I walk like a penguin too! Stiff like hell! I will tell you though, every day gets better. I freaked out when they gave me my second garment, but now I can't wait to wear it cuz I feel how lose this one is. I will have my 2nd drain removed tomorrow and I'm planning on putting my new garment on when I get home. It won't feel pretty, but I know its gonna do me some serious justice lol!

So you had your drains a long time? Cant wait to get the removed it feels like i have a tail it makes going to the bathroom hard :(
  • Reply
No actually I had my back drain removed when I was 5 days post op. my 2nd was removed yesterday when I was 8 days post op. Usually the 2nd drain is removed at day 10 post op. Also make sure u r squeezing the tube from the very top to the tip of the drain. Liquid gets stuck in that tube and u have to help push it thru to the drain a few times a day. How are you feeling right now?
  • Reply
Thx for the advice girl will do that to my tubes my front drains fill up more than my back one . I feel a lil better today got more of a appetite
  • Reply
Yay that's the first step! Each day gets better! Do u have pain by your butt or is it only where the lypo was done?
  • Reply
It kinda burns on the sides on the front incesions did that happen to you? But my but just feels stiff and hard
  • Reply
No the incisions didn't burn me. Take a quick look at the packet they gave for post op care. I think they me ruined if u have a burning feeling u should contact them. My butt hurts more than anything. And now it's burning around the inner edge where the thong sits. I almost feel like I might b getting a rash there.
