Getting really nervous about this. I can't wait...

Getting really nervous about this. I can't wait until it's over, I think just reading People who says that your going to be in a lot of pain is really making me nervous... Im going to Dr. Seven Williams in Dublin. I have a follow up appointment this Thursday to ask a list of questions.. I can't believe I'm finally doing this for my self. I am 32 years old with a 17 year old.. My stomach just won't go down as the older I get. My daughter said I looked like I was 6months pregnant ( I almost died when she said that) I'll post pics of my be for pics after my followup on Thursday..

Can't wait until this is gone

Thursday hurry up please!!

Welcome to the community.  Don't focus on the pain, that is all temporary and will end.  Try to take a deep breath and focus on how wonderful you will look and feel.  

We are all here for you.

Today is the day !!!

Well I'm a little nervous. Can't wait to get there ... Here's some pictures of what I'm traveling with to make my ride home a little bit more comfortable because I'm going back home to vallejo from Livermore.. I'll be in the mist of traffic, it's also raining so traffic might be horrific.. I also feel like I'm coming down with a cold.. I'm going to tell my nurse I hope I can still do everything.. What I'm bringing.
1.) protein shake
2.) bottle water ( for protein shake)
3.) one of my Pain pills proscribed by my doc ( muscle relaxer)
4.) crackers
5.) walking cane I picked up at cvs for $20.00.
5.) 6 pillows. 4 to lay on and 2 king size to keep me elevated..
7.) little trash can ( incase I get sick)

I put up my tree

I put up my tree so I can have to keep my spirits up while I'm laying on my couch. I'm glad I bought a sectional instead of a sofa.
Good luck for the big day,,

At home feeling great!!

Hello real-self family!! I got threw my surgery great.. I am so please and happy.. Doctor Williams had gotten there to me a little late, the nurses saint someone came a little late and he had gotten backed up. I was a little frustrated because I was so Hungary $ thirsty. But as soon as I saw him I got so existed , and happy. He told me he's not going to rush anything with my procedure.. He's going makes perfect . And that's exactly what he did.. I am not swollen I think it's because I drink a lot of water. The day before I drank 30 bottles of water with lemon in it.. I have my bender on its tight as hell but it's ok.. I'm up walking fine with my back hunched over but other than that I feel no pain from taking my medication as directed.. I would recommend dr Williams to everyone..
glad all went well, so great that you are not in much pain, wow I was, glad you are doing well, get lots of rest, walk around house when you can and keep us updated ! so glad you got this behind you, all forward from here !

Im messed up on the first night

I was feeling so good that I forgot that I couldn't just eat anything. I was so Hungary that I ate 3 pieces of veggie pizza.. Holy SHIT what was I thinking?? Out of all the the reading I've done about the do's and Don'ts of what not to eat. My stomach started to swell up , I was throwing up all night. My daughter was scared and called my doctor at 3am and told him what I did. He told me to take an antibiotic, and drink only clear liquids. The 7up brought me back. I was throwing up for about 7 hours , and holding my stomach so tight because it felt like my ditches were going to bust open. Worst night of my life. I can't believe that I did that. I'm feeling great now still no pain , drinking lots of water with lemon. Eating yogurt , organic low sodium soups & fresh organic carrot juice. Also organic pineapple , and oranges. I also have 100 % whole wheat beagles & cream cheese. I'm drinking about 15 bottles of water a day.. I'm flat as a board..
Thanks for the advice; my TT is in 4 more days. You look so flat, congratulations!

No bruising at all

I went for my first post op my doctors on vacation, she was so amazed that I had no bruising at all from the lipo. She couldn't believe that it was my first post op appointment. I got one drain taken out & my second appointment is next Tuesday. Dr Williams is the "BOMB".. I'm looking so good and flat . I took my first shower today and it felt so good. Here's some pics will update more soon. Remember water is your best friend & I'm only 6 days post op..

My water routine

Only 3 left. So I've drank 32 today.

Costco

A case of water a day only cost me 35.00 a week from Costco. I am going to the bathroom a lot and buying more toilet paper, but it's worth it. I've always been a health nut so I know how my body will be in the end. I just got pregnant twice and went up to five months and miscarried the baby's. After that it was hard to get my belly to go away because I was so depressed. But know I'm back to my old self.
Wow, that is so cool! Will be stocking up on water! Lol. Sorry abt your past losses. God Knows best. Happy healing

It's ok it helps the bruising go away from the lipo. I drink 3 bottles an hour so I'm good, my skin looks amazing & my incisions heals very quickly.

I was laughing when I read your comment about spelling! I felt the same way when I read over some of my own posts/spelling errors - lol. We had our TT's on the same day! You are looking great! When you said you finally showered, did you take an actual shower/shower or sponge bath? I haven't been given the all clear until the tape comes off :( it's killing me! uggh, but I'll be patient. Again, you are healing beautifully. Good advice about the water - I need to get on that better. The funny thing is, I was a water hog before the surgery. It will definitely help with some of my extra swelling. Keep up the good work!!

I wore this agressive rubber waste cruncher and i could stand up stright After 2 to 3 weeks layer. It Was made out Of rubber. Also there is a silicone wrap made for tummy tucks that If you wrap it around really tight you can stand up stright , but you have to have your drains out befor you can wear Of them.

egressive waist garment

I wear this when I'm out all day. My waist is already small so I don't need to keep it on for long.
Everytime I get discouraged I come to your page. I don't know why. I finally had the opportunity to drive and run errands and when I say I was so swollen and stiff I just came to your page and seen your compression garment post and just made me anticipate my verdette cincher corsets to finally come in the mail. I'm still hanging in there lol! Ttys!

my waist is a 29

I'm so happy that my waist is a 29. I finally went to get a measuring tape to finally do it. I'll be 6 months soon, that's when I can do Crunches, but Im not sure that I really can. I still dont feel like i can. I think Im going to wait à hear.
You look fabulous! Patient, doctor relationships are extremely important, sounds like you have a good one. Take care
