Hello everyone! So I just had my procedure around...

Hello everyone! So I just had my procedure around 2;30 yesterday. When I got there they brought me back to this one room to talk a little more about the procedure,and afterthe procedure of dos and donts. she said I can walk and she wants to walk slowly starteing today!!(yes the next day after procedure) I can totally do that! And gave me a little something to relax me(not sure what it was called similar to xanax im assuming its put under your tongue. Then doctor came in and took pictures took pitures and made me look like picasso and then more picture! PHOTOSHOOT OH YEAH!
Alright now its time to go in the procedure room with my robe and booties and little underwear on. the nurse gave me laughing gas which was pretty funny, I could have took it off If I didnt like but it wasnt bothering me so i just left, but they started running out of laughing gas by this time He was about done with all the lidocaine,(WORST PART) but not unbearable. So then he starts with whatever hes doing. ITS A VERY WEIRD SENSATION!!! I KEPT ON SAYING OUTLOUD THIS IS SOOO WEIRD WEIRDEST THING IVE EVER well after the nurse bandaged me p and wrap me up VERY TIGHT.(the reason i am up at 5am) i just cant sleep inside my stomach hurts. On sunday night I can get out of this deathly thing and take a shower and then it goes back on without the EXTRA dressing thats underneath it. its sot of like a spank this with shorts it has zippers up sides nd straps. and a big enough hole to go to the bathroom Ive Just been wearing boy shorts over it and a shirt when im around the house! Well thats about it! if you have and questions LET ME HEAR EM!! I WILL PUT MY PICS UP TOMORROW NIGHT SO STAY TUNED. all wrapped up no!.

Just took a lil walk over a mile very slowly....

HELLO!! its been almost 2 weeks friday. I just got back from 7 miles walk. I can pretty much do my normal workouts except running. I am now starting to get these little pea sized ball things in my stomach. I've been just massaging my stomach thoughout the day and at night i kay on the couch and massage them for about 30 minutes. ???WHEN DID ANYONE FEEL THESE THINGS STARTING TO GO AWAY??? I feel that my last pics i posted i look smaller than I do now. Which is a bummer! I dont really think im swollen at all, but I really dont think so. :/

The lymphatic massage helped me with my hard lumps. I would def get that done very soon! My massage therapist says between days 7-9 is when you will get the best results if you start with the massage to get rid of those lumps. I also started apple cider vinegar shots ( have a drink near by lol) and started adding fresh lemon to my water to help your lymphatic system. Hope that helps. keep us posted.

Ask you doc if he has anyone he uses. I did a lot of research about it even after it was recommened to me. I asked the doc on realself and it was confirmed. It is very beneficial. If your doc doesnt have anyone then google it in your area, just make sure they are experienced. I started mine at 2 weeks.

Thank for the info, there is a promo on living social $1000 for a liposuction, which is better lipo or smart lipo, how is the apperance of the skin and price for the one u did, sorry to ask so many question but im trying to decide if i should go to dominican repu or just get here and what kind, thank u

I'm not sure....depends on you individual case. Smartlipo is supposed to be less invasive, and therefore shorter recovery and lower risk. You'd better consult with a PS first!

I was in a lot of pain too. If you puke when u take your meds have the Dr call in phenegan for nausea. Take it about 45 min before the pain killer. That's the only thing that worked for me. Also have some food. If that doesn't work ask your Dr if u can take ibuprofin. Mine let me at I took 4. It helped a lot. Drink tons of water. Rest slit. I didn't move much for 2 days. Give yourself some time to heal. Tomorrow probably won't be much better but it will get better in a few days. Good luck to you.
