Wishing for a round booty!

I leave wed its becoming real!

Almost there

Let the healing begin

So Duran is super nice had some bumps in the road but had my surgery last night, this pain is not cool but as long as u have pain meds u should be good! Oh ya I couldn't have made thorough this with out Angie moved out of the hotel and am staying with her will post later

Post op day 2

Hello ladies I am feeling better yesterday I cried a little due to pain but I'm up an walking! Duran was a sweet heart she came in to check in on me and I am really happy with my results! I'm gonna post pics today

Post op day 2

Couldn't of made it through with out Angie

ok ladies I was so against RH and I ended up at silhouette recovery house! Angie translated and took care of me from day one! 829-794-9082 she's great

RH

Day 3 post op

Can't wait to go home

Ok I know that I was going off about the recovery house but honestly I checked out I am in a hotel again and I am going home early! Honestly Angie was great fir translation but each doc has some one who speaks English! I could and I did most of my recovery myself! My home girl who came pretty much worked at the house as a nurse taking care of all the clients, then she over charged me for my stay went back on her original quote! Be very careful get everything in writing, and don't rely on the word of ppl you don't know! Anyone going to DR make sure u have someone u can rely on to stay with you this is an emotional roller coster take time to be prepared follow your gut and have a back up plan! I would suggest that u stay in a nice hotel renaissance is perfect because it is clean nice like a resort and worth the money! The food is amazing! I'm not gonna harp to much on the drama over the last 4 days. I am super happy with the Duran as my doc and my results! It can get frustrating trying to get her or her assistant but trust me when I tell u she is professional and cares about her clients! She is in the process of trying to get a system to be able to answer everyone who wants her as her doc but when u see it in person all the ppl she cares for in a day u will under stand and doc yily is the same way she cared for me even tho I wasn't get client and was in the clinic until after day checking on her ppl! Ladies please prepare yourself for ups and downs and stay in good spirits take your meds and your iron u don't want to come and not get your stuff done cause of low iron! Every surgery has risk just be overly prepared! Get a room with someone close to you, or buddy up with one or two ppl and stick to your plans!! I am on my way home tomorrow and I can't wait to see my family! Gn real self ladies!

Drains are out

Duran didnt really like the idea of me leaving but she cleared me to go, my drains are out and she gave me instructions on how to care for myself! I'm not gonna tell u not to stay at the recovery house for me it was my biggest regret cause I had a plan and by day one I had no money and couldn't figure out why and that's because this women over charged me, not to mention my girl paid to stay slept on a pull out chair and cared for all the girls while the "nurse" didnt really do anything! Keep track of your own meds, yes your gonna pee on your garment so bring some disinfectant to clean your area off and if u do stay at a RH you only need someone for the first 4 days! At first Angie was the truth but things changed fast! My suggestion is to get a hotel room be comfortable expect to be in pain and bed for a few days but u can get through it! Florida hotel Duran sends a nurse to you! Or u can hire one through whatever doctor! Have a plan stick to it! My plan got messed up cause of me feeling overwhelmed in a different country but trust me when I tell u I am at peace with this hotel and going home tomorrow! Also iwantawaist suggested a cab driver use him he is very nice and on the ball bambino taxies

I'm home

Ok ladies I am home and I am happy to be home! I got in at 3am cause I was red flagged at customs lol oh well! Just a heads up let them know u had surgery! It helps! Ok so I wanted to say to the ladies on their way to DR, its going to be an up and down ride, their health care system is nothing like our systems remember your going to another country that will not treat u like your own! In regards to the RH Angie was a great help in the beginning I will give her that, she is working out the run of the recovery house just get all your details in written so their is no miss understanding the place is nice, the food was ok, the "nurse" doesn't speak English and did all she can, I'm sure Angie will work it out! I think after 4 days u can go to a hotel with a buddy or friend and enjoy DR! Juan bambino was great! This process is and can be frustrating disappointing and make u mad but in the end the doctors are great sweet and worth it! Have a plan a b and c! I am happy I did it happier I'm home! I will post more pics in a few days!

1 week post op

Feeling good still bruised but I'm up and walking eating etc I'm on my third row time for a smaller garment! Loving my waist line! DR Duran texted me this morning to check up on me! Such a sweet lady! I will try to post better booty pics later!

Duran's suggestion

Stiff

Still stiff and swollen nights are the hardest when i try and roll my body doesn't like it lol I haven't had to take pain killers since last tue just some Advil for swelling! I'm looking forward to getting softer my booty doesn't hurt at all its the stiff tummy and back but the discomfort is so worth this waist line! The bruises are fading happy about that and I'm trying not to sit around all day! I haven't been drinking as much water as I should to help flush my system but I have been drinking protein to help repair my muscles! It really does feel like I hit the gym all week to hard! Lol I'm only a week and some post op and I don't regret a thing! My mind is playing tricks like me and my home girl were talking about I'm like my booty doesn't look that big lol then I put on yoga pants and pie there it is! I'm so happy I did this! I will post pics in a few day

Very sad

Please ladies be honest with your doctors about your health and past health issues don't risk your life for a booty! If the doctors make a recommendation take heed to what they say a girl lost her life Friday in DR NOT LISTING TO THE DOCTORS she was doctor Rodriguez clients and now her mother is leaving DR alone! I saw it for myself women cussing out the doctors just because they are Dominican doctors doesn't mean they don't know cause they aren't American doctors! Take your pre meds and pls don't risk your life ! My heat and prayers go out to that family! I called to confirm this did happen the girl had extreme asthma so sad

Tomorrow is 2 weeks post opt

Ugh

I hate pics of myself I don't think they do any justice to what I see lol

Two weeks today

Here you go ladies the booty two weeks post opt! I'm going for a massage tomorrow it's so needed been doing it myself and it has helped but why not just let someone else do it lol have a great day!! Ps this is a pic I sent the hubby! :p
