Had procedure done yesterday, went in at 8:30 was out by 1pm. Like another person stated once you are given the anesthesia you wake back up in what seems like a couple minutes with the procedure completed.
I was nauseous once I arrived home, so I took the anti-nausea meds that I was given. I was also given a steroid to help with swelling, Oxycontin, and an anti-biotic. I was not really hungry following the procedure, probably because I felt sick. Had a tiny bit of soup took my pain medication and passed out for the night. When I woke up the next morning I felt totally fine, some tenderness from the bruising but that is the only pain I am having so far.
Went in for the post op and I could not believe that even with the swelling my tummy was flat. I am 5'1" weigh about 120lbs and have never had a flat tummy. I am not fat but even when I weighed 100 lbs I never had a flat abdomen.
Bruising is pretty extensive but it is where the compression garment is pressing harder. So my guess is that the garment is causing some of the bruising. will post more as the days go on.
