The procedure itself was not very painful. The massage post procedure was absolutely 100% excruciating. I was visibly bruised and swollen. It wasn't till day 7 that the pain has become almost unbearable. I can actually see my stomach twitching. It feels as if I am being stabbed repeatedly - some pains are so intense that I can't help but moan and cry. I have tried Ice, heat, Naproxen, Spanx, Lidocaine, and now Tramadol. HOPING that it subsides soon!

Making progress!

Pain free now ;) Already see a noticeable difference in what I call my "kangaroo pouch". Back to running and looking forward to pilates next week! Will post pics soon.

Swelling has subsided, pain is gone, bruising almost not visible, and only a bit of numbness remains.

?I am so happy...

From comment on 7/17/14: I am so happy that I did it! I have already recommended it to a friend that would be an ideal candidate.

Man I am so torn on this procedure! It is a total mixed bag of reviews. Some people have GREAT results and some people have ZERO results. My parents both did the procedure about 2 years ago and it did nothing for my father and my mother actually GAINED 2 inches on her thighs. I wonder what determines if it works for some people and not others. Glad you had great results though :) You look great

Can I ask what office you used? I live in the area and am trying to select which office is best.

Most definitely! Dr. Elizabeth Kinsley on Oschner Blvd. in Covington. I've been with her for a while. I was able to attend an open house where a live viewing of the procedure was offered along with a GREAT discount.

How long did it take for the bruising to go away? Hope you are seeing the results your after!

The bruising is just about gone. I'm still a bit numb and a tad bit swollen, but I already see results. Day 8 and 9 were the worst, but SO much better now ;)

Listen we should not recommend prescription medication to anyone on here. That is a Drs decision. Neurotin is a anti seizure drug that is given for neuropathy, not to be taken without consideration, please be cautious.

Unfortunately, you haven't tried the most prescribed drug for this, a nerve-blocker: Neurontin. It's supposed to be taken at the 1st sign of discomfort though.
  • Reply
My Dr. did not want to prescribe Neurontin unless absolutely necessary. I'm allergic to codeine, so my options were limited.

Sorry you are having the pain, not fun at all. From what others have said it should be over in a few days. I did not have pain, but sympathize with those that do. Feel better!

Thank you! The majority of the pain has subsided. It is very sporadic and not as intense now. I appreciate the well wishes. It's hard for me to imagine this procedure being pain free. Wonderful to hear that it is possible.
