Have lost a lot of weight and my stomach seems to...
And that's that!
The whole procedure was surreal. It felt like an hour, but it took 3 hours. Incredible. I urinated right away which to me is a great sign. When we were done my mom was there waiting and we couldn't catch a cab so we took the crosstown bus then grabbed a cab. I changed and knocked out. Woke up at 7ish, urinated twice, and the faja was soaked. My sis, who's a physician assistant, spoke to the technician of the clinic and she helped me change the pads, I was dripping anesthetic. I guess now this is what I should be expecting. In the meantime here's some Photos of me and the anesthetic seeping through the second wrap and the Tummy fat. The first one was soaked! Don't know how I had the clear mindedness to capture the Tummy fat!
the day after
5 lbs down
Weak and doing own massages
I've had to take two sick days from work due to much needed rest. I tried to go into work but just couldn't. I even took the compression suit off for the day. My post-op appointment is tomorrow. I've bought arnica cream and YouTubed lymphatic massages, so I just do it on myself. I hate that I've taken sick days but I had no choice, I have to listen to the body. Since my appointment is tomorrow, if he feels I need more days, then he can write a note and I'll send it to my managers. So not all is lost! For your viewing pleasure I'm attaching a photo from a couple of days ago.
Doc called and told me everyone's different. That I simply need to rest and that he'd write a note, so I can rest and return to work on Monday.
