I got surgery with Dr Rios on Jan 10, 2013. So its been almost three months. I feel great and I didn't have any complications. In the pics you will see the difference of before and after. I do recommend him. I had the drain pump for two weeks (as per his rule) and Im glad I did because I didn't have any of those fluid build ups. Im in my early 20s but my two daughters took a little toll on my belly.

One of the things I really liked was that after surgery they gave me an emergency number to call if I had any questions after hours. So one time during the 3 days after surgery, late at night, I was crying in pain. So my husband said I should call to ask what I can do. So I called and a female nurse answered and as I cried on the phone she comforted me and just calmed me down. She said she could give me a pain patch but I refused it again (because you cant do both pain meds and patch). I just had to share that cause I was feeling pretty miserable and I felt much better after that comfort.

Also when I stopped feeling the actual horrible pain, one of the two meds started making me throw up. Common side effects are nausea or extreme itching (as I have read) well mine ended up being vomiting. Let me just say vomiting is horrible when you are healing. So experiment and stop taking one or the other to see which is making you feel worse and just stop taking it.
