1000 Needles Poking at my Abdomen - Los Angeles, CA

I decided to have the coolsculpting procedure done...

I decided to have the coolsculpting procedure done on wednesday on my lower abdomen. I have children and I am in my late 30's, weigh 135 and I'm 5'6. Never saw huge results with exercise and weight training. Today is day 6 and I am still in excruiating pain even after taking motrin 800 mg every 6-8hours. The pain will wake you up at night and is about a 7. Ice helps tremendously. I am surprised the company does not recommend a nerve blocking agent to alleviate the nerve fibers firing off eradically with so many medications available on the market. The procedure itself was not too painful.(after the first 10 minutes). They used a large handle set at 70. I will post again once my pain has diminshed.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your experience with us. I hope you're starting to feel a little better with the pain!

Please do come back and let us know how you are, whenever you feel able to.

I've contacted the office today however it was closed and no one is on call. I will call again tomorrow to see if the physician would prescribe neurontin 300mg every 2-3 hours for 7 days. The rating will change depending on the physicians response
