I don't really remember falling asleep but I do remember saying (during SX lol) that I'm done hahah that I don't want this anymore lmao Of course that didn't work and they continued. I remember feeling the lipo to my stomach and I also remember being turned over but for real it's not that you feel the pain.. It's just that you feel... So I think my SX (breast augmentation/lipo with fat graft) lasted around 3 hours. I was told by my roommate that when I got back to the room I was flailing and shivering terribly! I do remember that I was shaking hard as I came out of anesthesia and let me tell you.. My back is KILLING ME! I know it wouldn't have been so bad had I not convulsed for 3-4 hours

Ok so I was up all night stifffffff as a board and no matter what they were not letting me up for nothing.. I was t even allowed to sit up in bed.. OMG the stiffness is OUT OF CONTROL! Finally got more pain meds at around 5:30 am and that put me out for around an hour or so but the stiffness just doesn't let you sleep :-/ Also forget about eating seriously.. Because your not getting anything until 8 am and it's soup.. Blah I do suggest bringin a very light snack to Cipla to have the next day.
Now comes the pain. Right after our "breakfast" came the nurses came to wash us .. Let me tell you. THIS SHIT HURTS I was in so much pain I was in tears.. They cut off hospital gown and opened Faja to wash u up and it's just terrible.. Idk how ill manage the massages looming in the horizon... For the love of beauty I swear woman.. We r nuts!

Day three has gone smooth sailing for me. The first day I have not taken any pain meds. I got up this morning and pretty much been up since about 11 am. I had a nurse come by yesterday to help clean me up but I wasn't satisfied so I thanked her and told her I would find other arrangements.
So I washed myself today which was not hard whatsoever! The sweet housekeeper at plaza Del Sol was sweet and helped me out of my Faja and washed it and a few other things for me... Then helped me (and the rest of the ladies that are here) back into but I'm able to do it myself (I had to go to the bathroom something awful today so I had to take it off anyway) so ill just be asking for help with lavanderia now...They are soooo stinkin sweet here! Big ups to my Dominican ma ;)
After I was nice and clean I waled pretty much all day! I mean I probably walked 2 miles today! I'm so happy to be healing so rapidly.. It's truly amazing to me

Along with the walking I have been massaging my body. Im hoping to keep my body shrinking day by day and it's happening rapidly which just goes to show that when your truly doing all of the steps needed to heal properly you can make it happen! One of the girls I walked with today was hunched over a bit today at the beginning of the walk and by by the 15 min mark was was upright.. LADIES YOU HAVE TO MOVE YOUR ASSSSSS! Lololololol
Ill have to say I have one spot on my lower back that burns at times.. I'm sure this will subside with time and I'm only feeling it in one spot so far so if that's all I get ill take it with my head bowed to Yily the WO-MAN!
My breasts are already softening wonderfully which is a blessing because I didn't want hard daggers. Tomorrow I will see the incisions possibly so ill let you know how the nipples look ladies. HAPPY ACTIVE HEALING EVERYONE!
Ok night for now.

Today I went to see yily at 4:00. Thing is she was NOT THERE! OMG I could strangle Yira for this as I have not gotten a bra yet and my back needs the support lol theses puppies surly are heavy hahaha
I had a LG faja on and am now in an X-Small.. YIKES! This is nooo joke! But it's the right decision and I am happier with the compression for sure. See new pics :)

PLEASE EXCUSE THE NASTINESS ON MY PAGE! We can't all be grown up just goes to show that woman will exploit your weaknesses so keep them to yourself... I will not be commenting on this ignorance again. My advice is just keep focused on your SX and you'll be just fine :)
Ok so for my update:
I am finally home!!! I had a time getting here I tell u what. I got to airport yesterday at about 1:00 and had requested wheelchair assistance but opted out so I could get some exercise before the 4-hour flight to nyc....
WELLLLLLL that didn't work out too well. With lipo board and this faja sitting in the airport chairs is as uncomfortable as possible sooooooo i kept adjusting my faja.. BIG MISTAKE!
While I was waiting to board the plane (about 20 mins before take off) security came up to me demanding I go with them to somewhere (I know enough Spanish to get by but I couldn't figure out what the heck he was saying) so I get up crippled and all mad stiff and start to slowly walk behind the crew as I couldn't friggin hustle anywhere! At that point I asked for the chair because I did not want to miss my flight. As we walk I'm trying to tell them it's just a faja but I get it. Safety first. I was just trying to get to my plane so I was upset and attempting to rush but of course they will look at you like your stupid and chat away fast as hell in Spanish. Long story short they made me open my faja to prove I had nothing. This OF COURSE forced me to miss my plane...SMH I felt like those ppl in locked up abroad lol cause I got wheeled back to the gate just in time to see my plane takeoff RATTTTTTTSSSSSSS!
Next Delta flight was the next day (today) soooooo I had to hobble my happy ass to the delta offices upstairs so they could waive the $150 change fee.
*NOTE*- I was originally going to leave on the 14th but changed to the 12th. And I'll have to get all of this info correct tomorrow if needed but short is that they didn't charge me the change fee the first time either and I got upgraded (was in coach becuase I used my SKYMILES and didn't realize I wouldn't be in business class) so they upgraded at no charge when I gave the hospital and showed my discharge papers when getting my ticket at counter. *
So I hoped n a cab ($40) back to Hotel Magna456 for another night in DR... UGGGGG. I had a drink. Or two ;(
I am not one to tire so easily but I was EXHAUSTED so I slept like a baby and did it all over agin today SMH but thank goodness I am home now! I suggest taking a pain pill before boarding your flight because its killer on the back foooorrr realllll..
Ok I'm turning in for now tty guys later
