I'm on day 3 post op and can't see much...
- 24 Feb 2011
I'm on day 3 post op and can't see much improvement. I did quite a bit of research before having the procedure done so I realize I still have a lot of swelling, but I'll be honest I'm a little concerned.
During the procedure: I was given a sedative prior to the procedure that had me stumbling all over the place and I barely remember much from that day. I did wake up mid procedure in a lot of pain. Forget when they say it doesn't hurt. It felt horrible. The dr and nurse's said that wasn't normal and shouldn't have happened. Whatever the case my be, it was definitely not an experience I want to remember all that well anyway.
Post: Day one, I was a little loopy and don't remembe very much. I slept most of the day. If your consult tell you that you'll be able to go to work afterwards they're lying. Day two I was still pretty sore and woke up vomitting probabaly because I took a pain killer in the middle of the night I was in so much pain. I laid around most of day 2. Day 3 was much better but I still had some sorenes and stiffness. Today (Day 4) is much better and I got out of the house and got some things taken care of.
Like I mentioned earlier, I'm still very swollen and lumpy. My abdominal area is oneside and I'm starting to think the Dr stopped because of the pain. I can't wait til my post op appointment to show him the area. i know I'll hear the spill about lumpiness and being dis proportionate. But, I'm almost certain I'll need a touchup. Anyways I'll get you posted on the results and post photos a little later.
I can't really say whether I recommend this Dr or not at this time. I didn't spend much time with him, but his staff is great. My rating will depend on my results and right now I'm in need for a touch up.
