Re-op check up
What a nitemare! Drove 3 hours to get there. Sign all the consent form. Which scare me to death..there are so many thing can go wrong..make me so nervous! Get all the medication and instruction. I have to take arnika forte for 6 days before the surgery..I didn't realize I can't buy it over the counter.
I was at the northwest Hospital waiting for 2 hour for a 15 minutes service. All they have to do is take my blood. I hope they not going to be this way on my surgery day. This is crazy!
By the way is there anybody been ask if u allow to have a nurse student to put anesthetic for your surgery? I refuse to it. That sound scary.
I am going to have so many thing done to my self. Come to find out I have sign up for..lipo on my ab..back..flanks..transfer fat to my hip..and tummy tuck..oh my god..I hope ..I pray..it all going to be alrite..

Almost three month!
Lipo area still burn. First week of scar treatment. Still swollen during the day. Starting to crave for sweet but I try to control myself. Let me c wat the Doct going to say about my progress. Appointment is next week. Of course I don't expect to be perfect but my hip is little uneven..lipo in my inside thigh look lumpy. But hopefully with time it will better. I hope the swelling could stop now.
He is very convincing..little rush with the consult..but I believe in his work..He will lipo my hip, back, tummy, and a tummy tuck..and fat transfer to my hip. So much to be done!
