the receptionist help me out alot in getting my surgery date all set. so now im going to walmart (cause u know walmart is the shiznit) and im going to get my supplies, i will post what i got when i come back
any advice is welcomed on my blog let me know whats missing to help me and others.Gosh im so excited!
Ok so im back so here is what i purchased i...
- 12 Feb 2013
- 28 days pre
so here is what i purchased
i got the (generic) drinks *same nutritional value as ensure* (please tell me how i get these on a plane, do i need a doctors note?)
polysporin ,it has zinc in it (which i heard is good for wound healing
neosporin + pain relief (used it before and it really helps for me) be careful with applying yourself, if u dont know what precautions to take, ask the doc.(clean hands)
Hydrocortisone generic ( for the itchies)
laxative, generic,xtra gauze, xtra tape, and maxi pads.
travel toiletries, baby wipes 2 packs *for the germfreak in me* (im going to pour alcohol on em so i dont have to worry about the whole 3oz rule), plus i am going to use the 3 oz travel spray bottle, filled with alcohol to sanitize the toilets and stuff. (gotta be careful with open skin)
tanks & under clothes,antibacterial soap
slide on shoes (found the cutest black ones that dont come off while walking) *good for airports too.
a few clothing items,
and this "thing" that has the same idea as a fanny pack, but it fits around your waist, and its thin so noone knows u have it on, its to put money and passport in.(sold in the suitcase/ travel section of walmart)
well thats it so far! im not really worried bout much else, im not bringing alot of stuff, and as far as clothes go, im bringing thin cotton shirts, cotton maxi dresses, and cotton pants because they are light to carry, and pack easy, plus nobody wants to carry a crapload of clothes while feeling pain (trust me i kno) so i will stick to the essentials, and the heaviest stuff i have so far is my ensure which does not matter because i would have drank them all by the trip home. i may only carry 2 "cute outfits" but no jeans at all. yall probably know by now that in most cases jeans are a no no *imagine sitting on a plane all tight lookin from the swelling* not good for the circulation either. so im leaning towards a loose fitting winter dress for my trip home.( a long sweater, or sweater dress with leggings?) this would be the only thing i would have to purchase that i dont have.
let me know if im missing anything

my goal right now is to try to not involve myself in anything related to the surgery untill the 8th of march, because i am making myself tense. so no blog sites, no investigating,no talking about it, and no daydreaming allowed, im going to just live my life untill the 8th. i will sum it all up before i leave, then its bon voyage!
Well have been trying to get things together, the...

i have been takings my vitamins as directed. and i brought a juicer. i have been drinking alot of carrot and beet juice also to help my bloodcount. i brought freeze dried beetjuice powder to bring with me also to bring with me to mix with the v8 juice im bringing with me also, i made sure to buy the low sodium v8 so that i wont retain too much fluid from the salt
i have been still thinking about the bbl and going back n forth in my mind if im going to do it or not, i did not really have a wish pic before because i never thought about who i wanted to look like, i was more focused on my measurements, but in the name of realself bbl tradition, the person i feel like i could resemble (body wise) is bria myles. i may be able to achive the look without the fat injections. but i will not determine if i will do this untill i talk to yily.
i have a big butt for my height, but i kinda wanna be in the 45 and over club. (i was almost there naturally when i was in the gym alot last year) i kinda want to be 47-48 inches if i get it done, but if that cant be achieved i would rather keep the butt i have, then get a scar on my butt just to gain 2-3 inches. if im going to get a scar on my butt, my butt better be huge! lol its fate that this guy who is a tailor gave me his business card a month ago, he was just handing em out. im going to need a tailor to alter my pants when i buy them. lol
my date is coming up so soon , and i look forward to it. i hope everything goes well, i have 4 more days till i leave, i will try to stay as calm as i can. because i feel that i am blessed enough to not worry about anything. things always work out for me somehow.
I am getting closer to the date. im not nervous...

well here are some extra items i am bringing that i didint post before
bed liner (chucks)
arnica gel (for rubbing on bruises)
(got the arnica from the same site) i mix it with v8 (low sodium) i know that some say it goes best with carrot juice , but when i mix it with v8 i seem to have more pep in my step
i also use my juicer to get beet juice,(not bringing it with me tho) for when i don't feel up to using the powder, and mix it with carrot juice purchased from the store.
im bringing my own food, it is allowed as long as its in checked luggage.
i brought tupperware to put food in and i will later freeze it, i cooked alot of food today, and froze some of it. and then i will put each container in ziplock bags in case they pop open.
well its late where im at, and i dont want to lose sleep.i guess 2 morrow will be my last update before i leave. hey anyone know if there is oovoo in dominican republic?

oh back to the complication. i needed a blood tranfusion after surgery cause my blood got down to 6.2 thats half of normal. i didint have enough cash for it so i asked her can i get the money from the area she didint do. and even tho she kinda got upset because she claims that i owed her extra for doing my thighs, (even tho i didint care bout my thighs) she compromised to only charge me for one bag, and i pay for the other (for a heads up it is 75 dollors for each bag)
well i went home late yesterday because i had reations to the blood transfusion, i was told it was nomal, i was shaking real bad and got so cold, then i was hot. it was like my body was rejecting it. it didint act so badly to the second transfusion.i wish i didnt have to do a transfusion, but it was a matter of my life because my levels were down to half.
i am by myself right now, and i wanna go home early.i am going to see if i can get another doc to see me in my hometown. i know it is not recommended. but i feel so alone. i would not recommend stay by yourself. it makes u anxious to go home to your family
well she did do the fat graph and it seem like my but is bigger then my wish pic. when i walk i have to get used to having some fat in the part where i said i needed it to be filled in. i was concerned about scars but i only have 3 on my but 1 under each butt cheek (very tiny i coudint even see it im te mirror, i had to feel for it, to put my anti bacterial bandaid on(it claims on the box that it prevents scars) and i know i have one in my butt crack where she put the drain. i havent messed with that one. but i am so tempted to put some poly sporin on it cause i can feel it burnin a little.
well i will tell yall more later, i have sitting at this table, it seems like my laptop wont keep a charge except at this outlet.
Hey guys im still here,i been home 3 days, my butt...

my waist is more shapely with hardly any fat, but measurement wise, it almost the same as b4 ,only went down 3 inches, which i hear is common till the swelling goes down.i know that once all the hard tissue flattens out i will lose maybe another 2-3 inches. i took my garment off last nite for awhile so i was super swollen, i washed up good also. i know i am not sopposed to take a shower. so i put a lil water n the tub. and kinda kneeled in the water enough for me to soak as much of my hinney as possible, being careful not to let the water reach the top part of my butt where the drain was. i had to wash my va jay jay (as some call it) real good, to me doing this was as better than "washing up" because i can control where the water went just like washing up. but i was also able to soak my private area, cause just washing up just wasnt cutting it for me. so id rather bird bathe, then wash up in the sink. i cant stand feeling yucky. so even tho this is going slightly against the 2 week rule. it doesnt seem like a total violation plus the scars under my butt cheeks seemed to heal the fastest. and bathing didint do anything to em. the scars stayed completely closed. and i actually feel even less sensation from them , so i havent had any trouble in that area. i know this is not recommended. but a girl had to do what a girl had to do.
my chin lipo was blahhh, not much of a difference. and the only dramatic change so far is my thighs, im skinnny all over with fat arms, i mean akwardly fat in compared to the rest of my body. hopefully i can get together the cash to fix this issue, but its too late as far as the whole not going the summer with arm compression garments
Well today i feel much better, i felt kinda ill...

i am healing ok. the scars under my butt cheeks are almost gone already, but the scar where the drain was looks horrible. i had to pull my own drain out when i got home because i didint want to go back to yily after the attitude she gave me
and i have one bad scar under my left breast from the garment rubbing. i will go to a scar specialist to have them fixed
i read other blogs on here and alot of people keep talkin bout how its going to be better when the swelling goes down, and i just keep thinking to myself, is my butt gonna go down too? cause in that case my but will be the same as b4. it kinda looks the same, just shaped diffrently.
i dont have my thighs anymore i only wanted fat removed behind my thighs, and between my legs, but now they are straight up and down. as u can see from my wish pics, i obviously did not have a problem with my thick thighs, i kinda need em to pulloff a larger size butt, but since she reduced my thighs so much, i guess she didint feel the need to put as much butt,so i kinda feel like i am stuck with the same butt as before, except now i have a huge scar between my ass crack. i even kinda wonder if she even injected any fat at all, i was one of the last on the list for the day, my surgery was at 7:00 and there were 8 girls being seen that day.
i will write about my experience at cipla at another time, since i am trying to stay off my butt so i can preserve whatever i do have left. (i hope its not just fluid from my back lipo)
Well the swelling is going down alot, and it looks...

my butt has not shrunk at all, and even tho it hasent gotten any bigger. it has gotten way rounder. and i see more of a apple bottom.i put on my old jeans, and they fit me lose around my legs, but i could barely pull em over my butt, so a few inches must make a diffrence.
my arms went down a bit, because i lost a little bit of weight unintentionally, i find it hard to eat much with the garment on. so i like my new shape so far. and if it only get better than i cant wait to see. i am trying not to sleep on my butt, and this garment is driving my nuts but maybe it will be worth it in the long run, and thnk god its not summer yet, i wear alot of layers right now. my body looks so diffrent it is so obvious i had work done. i dont think the world is ready for what im hiding under my ex boyfriends zip up hoodie. lmfao!

i am sick of the garment, but im hanging in there. i actually take it off, then my body is like "oh no u dont" so i have to put it right back on again.i wear padding in the front and the back, and i kinda think is funny cause i look like i did post op, i was at the park the other day, and the padding was coming out of the bottom of my shirt. i didint know at first, but there was alot of people there so i felt kinda akward, but whatever, not like i even kno the people there. my legs went down a whole freakin lot, i was a little tight that yily took so much of my legs, but now i like em, only because my thick thighs looked good in clothes, but when i see my post op pics, i realized why she did what she did. i didint really plan on ever wearing a bikini or anything like that, and now im happy because i can now. i think thick is beautiful in my opinion,thats why i wanted to keep em, but when i see the overall vision she had, everything blends together well.i usually care too much what people think, n wonder if im being critisized about my body, im starting to get to the point where i just dont effin care anymore.i am pretty much satisfied, n im bout to get a bikini lol... i found a site with full coverage bottoms,the bathing suits are so freakin cute.and there is something for every shape. hope this helps
My outcome was good,and i feel blessed for that,...

so this is why i have no regrets and i hope thru my experience which was a rough one, there can be changes made, and that the girls on here will know what to look out for. i guess the moral of my whole situation, is speak up for your self, there is always a way to get what u need,and there is always a way to do it politely and without offending. and if your best (polite) efforts are dismissed, make sure u bring an extra voice with u.
i love my overall results, and i think as far as skills go yily did a great job, but my experience with her was so hurried, i dont have a real opinion of her so i cant really tell u much as far as that goes
see link for part 1 of review. my 4 star rating is based on skill only.
