CoolSculpting - Florida

I remember being a child, and being self conscious of my stomach. Diet and exercise do not work. The only way to loose this, would be to become under BMI. I have maintained the same weight (120-128 lbs) for the past 8 years. I am 5'5. I had CoolSculpting done the beginning of June 2012. I had my abs and flanks done (a total of 3 hours).
The abs section hurt really bad. I was in a lot of pain for the first 10 minutes. The sides were a breeze, although my stomach was still in a lot of pain. I took a pillow and the tech gave me snacks, so that helped me to not think about the pain.
I was freezing for about 12 hours after I left the doctor's office. I slept in sweatpants and a sweatshirt. When I woke up, my stomach looked like it had a big gash in it from the pants. I ended up wearing Spanx the following day to try and flatten that out. The pain is not so bad, but I have been taking aspirin every few hours. It does hurt to lean over or press on my tummy hard. The sides are only a little tender.
I'll keep you posted and add some pictures!
It has been one week since I had the procedure...

I am finally posting pictures. Note that these were taken within an hour of leaving the doctor's office, so I am swollen. I will try to take pictures again tonight. I feel like I am no longer swollen, but I am not sure why the pain is getting worse.
No more pain!!!!!!! FINALLY able to wear shorts...
