4 days post op

Day 4 I feel good. No more pain meds. New CG delivered today. Tight as hell omg! But better back support. Va Jay jay seems a little swollen. More bruising at lower abs site. Was able to drive. But difficult getting in and out of car. No more leaking. Yaaye! Keeping gauze on incisions though they feel like rugburns. Better covered to prevent chaffing with the CG

11 day journey

Day 1 to post op day 11

I wrote a review somewhere. I need to find it

11 day post op.

Ok. Sooo after 3 CG. That sizing is crazy o started with an abdomen wrap. Then purchased a halter faja. Tried the 1 piece romper. Umm yeah well its ripped in pieces and in the trash. Day 10 yesterday I purchased a homedics massager from bed bath and beyond. Its awesome. Bruising is almost gone. Vajay jay swelling has decrease. Incision sites on hips are sore. I think from the CG not covering that far. Scabs have fallen off. Upper back is sore I take advil for that. Massage daily at min 45mins b4 bed. Im still.swollen and today im.bloated. pre.menstrual. so I look bigger than day 2 post op. My waist at navel is a 34. But my 7 jean shorts are a size 32 and fit with the gap in the back :) I have several lumps and knots around my navel. They sometimes have sharp pains. I see some unleveled areas. I started using the lipo foam. The CG created an indentation in my lower abs so im trying to correct that b4 its permanent. Follow up visit scheduled In.4 weeks. Skin feels really tight and its difficult to stretch. I use the faja during the day and the ab wrap at night. Im moving around. I can drive. But taking this last week to just relax b4 heading back into the office. I attached a photo grid from day 1 till today and my wish pic. I think ill look better than my wish pic though. Lol.

Finally cleared

Hey ladies its been a while and I havent posted. Apologies. I had a really bad cold/flu/allergies. Idk. But its over. Im 5.5 weeks post op today. I keep shrinking. Saw my PS today. I have a hard lump near my navel. He attempted aspiration to see if it was fluid. not I received an injection of Cortisone to loosen the mass and was told keep massaging. Good news. My results arent typical at this stage usually at 2 months. Still swollen and my bra size has dropped from a 38 to a 34. My natural waist is a 30. Ive lost about 8 inches. There. Still have incision itching. And soreness along my flanks/sides at night when I sleep or stretch. He says my muscles are bruised but it will continue to get better. Im back to my pre op activities. I wear CG All day except at bedtime.

3mons post op

OK ladies its Been a while since ive posted, I am now 3 months and 1 week post op. Just tatted up my lipo incisions. I still wear my cg at least 3x per week.

Hey Colorado. I get confused on where im posting. Lol. Im doing well lumps are subsiding and evening out. Saw ps 2 weeks ago. Received a shot or cortisone near my navel. The lump softened up. I still feel sore around my sides. Dr said my muscles were bruised. I wear my marena cg everyday all day. And my marie faja waist cincher every other night. I cant stand the itching. Omg! Some spots of numbness still. Im still slightly swollen but I cant tell. If I stayed my current size I would be fine. New problem. My clothes. Lady let me tell you how I wear size 12/14 azz and hips. But they all fall off my waist. O_0! Leggings and dresses are easier to wear. My bra size went from a 38dd to a 34D. Pissed all my new bras are too big. Lol. My final.visit is Jun. May need some touch up but we'll see. Tomorrow I will officially be 6weeks post op and will post pics and meashrem measurements :)

Thanks CO. I told my PS to take tje maximum. He said almost 5. It was 4.6 total. Back. Abs flanks. Said surprisingly it just all came off. I have no fat left (I cant tell. I can still pinch an inch or so lol) still swollen and of course its cycle time ;( with bloating. I will post updated pic on Tuesday. The monthly lady will be gone and the swelling down. I wear the marena 2nd stage onesie daily. I now have the waist cincher by Marie faja that I love. Only took 15mins to get it on. Size M. But omg. Slept in it and its very.comfortable. I can breathe.

My first squeem waist clincher I was sure it was to small, threw it in the corner and the next morning after about 15 minutes I was squeezed into it. Just took a little persistence the first time. Continued good luck.

My faja was an emotional and comical act to put on. Hubby had to assist. Got it on. Slept In. 24hrs. The next day I was able to snap by myself then day 3. I had to use the 2nd set of hooks to tighten it up

Hey lady. .doing a lot better just got the ok to start working out. I can see the results but they appear to change weekly. That damn menstrual bloating can't be stopped. Now the itching and numbness is aggravating. Dr says im.still slightly swollen. And to.keep wearing Cg I have stage 2 marena. Very comfortable. I started with an xl. Now I wear a medium. I think I could do a small. I also ordered a marie size m. They are cut smaller

Im going walking tda as a well the weather has been beautiful

How are you doing? I'm 3 weeks post today. It looks good, but by 3 pm I swell up like a balloon and then the tightness and burning starts! I have had 2 1/2 lbs of fat removed. I'm happy, but I'm too tight to work out... So I feel blubby in other areas...
  • Reply
Hi scarlett I feel great not working out for sure. I am able to stretch my back with tightness still in my abs. I haven't had much of an appetite and now have lower leg cramps im saying from dehydration however my Ps wants me to get an ultrasound today to just be sure. Im not saying the "e" word because I dont beleive or claim it. I walked quite a bit and tore the mall up so I haven't been laying still. Ill update tomorrow

Aww thank you momto38. Im soo ready to at least start going back to zumba. But I gave myself 30days post op b4 I start. How are you doing?
  • Reply
Im feeling great!! Dr cleared me to start working out for 10 minutes on the elliptical haha starting Wednesday (from the self-proclaimed gym rat I am who was squatting & leg pressing 300lbs) but it's a start. I'm just motivated to get back in there and continue on this jump started body LOL!! you said doing anything more than that would hinder my body is healing process and cause swelling that wouldn't easily be reduced
  • Reply
Wow 300lbs. Damn can you be my personal trainer. Maybe a skype session. Lol! And yup thats.my fear. I refuse to swell up before I see a final result. Zumba in a sauna suit. With an its.wraps.kit. sounds.like a plan. Ive gaines 4lbs although he removed the equivalent of 8lbs. Come April 26th. I have 2.5 months to drop at least 20lbs. Bermuda bound In june. Jamaica in July and Miami in August. Lol
