Well I should be booking my flight soon, I am still undecided whether I should stay at a recovery house or with family since am part Dominican and have aunts that are willing to take care of me. I just want to make sure am surrounded by people that are experience on the recovery don't want any surprises . Also my mother is beginning to put doubts in my mind about getting all three procedures she thinks I should do my BL later on, but I just want the whole package and I am pretty health even though I will go through a lot of pain at least will get my dream body. Will make up my mind soon but I think am still doing it all no turning back. So excited updating you guys soon, thanks RS friends.
Excited Just Waiting For June
So I have finally book my flight. I now have to buy supplies and get as healthy as possible. I have been reading other ladies reviews and have been getting an idea on what foods to eat and what vitamins to drink. Giving the fact that am doing all procedures at once want to make sure my hemo is super high. I plan on eating all iron rich foods in March then April and May drink tons of vitamins. I have decided to go thru with all procedures despite bad opinions from family and friends I feel this is a good opportunity to get the body of my dreams why not get it all done if I can afford to and of course if am healthy enough. Well RS friends well update you guys soon super obsessed with getting this surgery over with constantly on RS am addicted lol

Made it to the other side
Sorry ladies that I have not been able to update but the first 2 days were really rough on me. I got to Cipla at 6 am on Monday but Duran didn't get there till 730 and there was a lot of ladies there about 7 for surgery and a couple of post op. Duran is beautiful in person and super sweet, after talking to her I felt supper comfortable and she knew excately what I wanted I did not show her a wish pic. The doctor that did my ekg said she thought I was doing too many procedures at onces but give the ok for surgery and Duran said it will depend on my hemo. So after all the test and waiting until 1130am I was as at 12.3 I was kinda of disappointed because I had been drinking tons of vitamins so duran said she might no do my breast lift it will be determine during surgery if I was not bleeding to much. I was admitted around 12pm and at 1 they came to give me the blue pill. I got nervous but felt woozy instantly and don't remember much after that. I remember waking up 3 times during surgery and my head felt so uncomfortable and the second time I remember telling duran please do my breast lol. And the third time having lipo on my back it didn't hurt just pressure and burning feeling. But when I woke up from surgery I had a bad reaction to the anesthesia, my aunt was with me thru the whole process and I woke up kicking and trying to get out of be. But you are immobile so you can't move at all my aunt got nervous and called the nurse to help calm me down. When the anesthesia wore off boy was I in a lot of pain mainly the muscles from the tummy tuck hurt the worst I was glad when the nurse came in and gave me a shot for pain and to sleep. Then in the morning they came to wipe me down and drain my back I was in the worst pain ever. When the stood me up I felt super dizzy and like I was going to past out. Duran came to see me and told me my hemo went down to 7 and I needed a blood transfusion. Before I left Cipla they gave me a blood transfusion and left me in observation with couple of hours.
con,t made it to other side
After being in observation for a couple of hours they send me home. Later on that day I began to feel short of breath and a lot.of chest pain. My aunt's rushed me back to the clinic they gave me oxygen and a shot to put me to sleep. They told me it was most likely caused by the blood transfusion my body was adjusting to it and it cause all those symptoms. The left me in observation and send me back home the pain meds the doctor gave only took edge off felt a lot of pain from tummy tuck and its so uncomfortable to get out of bed even with both my aunts helping. They have been great ladies do not come alone its very tough the first 3 days.Am now 4 days post op and loving my results. Luckily duran was able to do bbl,tt,ba and lipo and so far I look awesome and healing fine. Things are finally looking up.Thanks for your support and prayer ladies.
First Massage Today
Yikess not looking forward to this part getting my first massage today. My back hurts a lot feels like I have a lot of liquids build up in my back and my tummy tuck hurts. Wish me luck ladies, love my butt so far hope it fluffs a lil more.
10 days post op
Hey ladies I have made to 10 days post op thank god. I have not had any complications so far beside the shortness of breath the 2nd day. Yesterday I went to a follow-up appt with Duran she tighten my faja and gave me a new on in small to put on Friday. It felt so damn tight but its gonna help a lot with swelling to go down. She did not go into details of how much cc she put and my implants I have my last appt on Monday am going to ask her.Felt a little bit rushed at my last appt she such a busy lady but she takes her time to explain everything. Am hoping my last visit she goes into details about all that. Anyways I have been trying to keep my self busy going out as much as possible my family here have been great don't know what I would have done without them. Will update on Monday take care dolls.
Hi ladies sorry for the delay its been a very busy few days. I had my last post op apt with duran on Monday June 30 and her office was crazy busy their were at least 25 ladies or more a few for surgery but mostly post op. I got to her office at 745 and she didn't see me till 1030. I love my results but at times I wish I had done it in the states just because I felt very rushed at every appt. I had some fluid built up in my tummy because I was not wearing my stage 2 faja which I was suppose to start using since the previous Friday. She drained my tummy with syringe and took at least 5 tubes full she told my I needed to continue with the lymphatic massage to avoid a seroma and for all the liquids are drained. I told her she hadn't given me my implant card or told me how many cc she put. She was saying she would email me the info because her office was so packed and went on to apologize saying she thought she had mention that information at my previous appt. Like I said I love Duran I think she's a very sweet and talented doctor but at times I just felt like another body and super rushed. She gave me advise on how to take care of my incisions and when to shower but it was always short. Anyways I have been home since Tuesday and I feels so good to be home with mu hubby and daughters I miss them so much. My husband was amazed at how good I look couldn't keep his hands off me. Well the first night I slept fine but woke up in the middle of the night sleeping on my side and with lots of pain on my left breast. The second night was pretty bad my back is so sore and stiff barely slept, and I clean a little yesterday and used my arms a lot and my breast have begun to bother me and burn around the nipple area. But when I look in the mirror its al been worth it I look so good, tried old clothes and I must say I have a tiny waist and boobs look awesome with tank tops. Ladies I will upload pictures soon thanks for the support and well wishes.
Well hey ladies, I have been very busy with my kids and getting ready to go back to work next week. Am feeling stronger each day am walking more straight now but still a lot of pain in my back when I stand for too long. My tummy does not bother me at all I started silicon scar sheets today and so far it has some scabs but healing fine. My butt has not gone down much but hurts every now and then at night when am sleeping I wake up with a lot of discomfort and butt cheeks burning. My breast don't bother me at all the only thing is that they are taking a while to heal my tummy tuck is healing much better. Overall the pain is tolerable haven't drank pain meds since am 5 days post op. It takes patience just wish these 3 months past fast lol,hate that I still have a lot of swelling. Also I had a beer yesterday I know am not suppose to drink but it's do hot in Miami, hubby did a bbq and I couldn't help myself lol. Anyways had my first massage in the states today, she went a lil soft compared to the lady in DR but I feel much better need atleast 10 sessions. Well update in a few weeks.
