OK I thought I would post this to help both medical professionals and patients alike.
Today I had my first round of miraDry. Apparently, I'm one of the few people that take longer to absorb the lido-cane injections. Because it took a bit of trouble shooting to figure this out, I experienced quite a lot of pain, having to ask the practitioner to stop multiple times. Once we figured out that A: that I need to receive non-diluted straight lido-cane shots, and B: I needed a longer wait-period for the anesthetic to be absorbed the procedure went much more smoothly.
Now that I'm home, I've noticed though the swelling is minimal and has gone down significantly, I am left with burn marks on my right arm. My right arm was the trouble and trial arm that had to undergo the procedure before the numbing could take affect. Both arms sting from a burn sensation more than anything, but you can actually see where I might get burn blisters on the right arm. Ice is helping but only time will tell on this one.
On a positive note, I'm not sweating. Period.
OK four days have passed and any swelling,...
