Shocks After Cellulaze? - Miami, FL getting better everyday

Hello everyone I am on my 8th day post surgery...

Hello everyone
I am on my 8th day post surgery (cellulaze and smartlipo) on inner tighs outer tighs and arms.
I must say the first 3 days were better than I ever expected. Some pain swelling and brusing must admit I thought it would be a lot more painful
Went to see my Dr 3 days later and he said all looked good and of course to be patient on results and to expect swelling for some time etc.
I was just happy that I felt good enough to go to work on Monday got surgery on Friday
However yesterday on day 7 I started feeling these incredible sharp painful electric shocks on one of my back tighs (right) specially when I sit to go to the bathroom so bad my tears come out. When I sit I feel as if I am pressing down on something and it shocks the hell out of me
Is this normal ??? I'm so scared


Wow, good job going for a long walk!!

Yes, please keep us posted on what you find out at your appt. Hoping things continue to feel better!!

Thanks for your prompt response.
Saturday the shocks were really bad but today they are much much better
I feel them suddenly but then they go away.
I have a Dr appointment tomorrow so I will let them know and post the Dr's response
I have been taking arnica pills and my brusing is 1000 times better, I suspect I might have them for 1 more week.... If that.
I bought them at GNC for like $8.00 you take them 3 times a day and the devolve in you mouth (Girls this is so worth it )
I make my self fresh pineapple shakes and only add water so this might be helping me with the swelling ( today is day 10 ) and I fit in my jeans with the garment underneath
I can't even imagine being without the garments they make me feel so much better and comfortable.
I do itch a lot but that's to this website I see this is very normal
In do see some improvement but I think it's too early on
Oh by the way I do feel some bumps in my inner tighs and my arms but I hear this is normal and don't wanna panic.
I have done 2 massages so far and tomorrow is my 3rd. I her the massages are key so I will keep you guys posted
I did not take pictures but my Dr did so I will ask him to email me and I will post them tomorrow (before pics) and then I will take some of the post surgery and post them
PS I hear from other ladies that have done traditional lipo that walking helps so I went for a 30 min walk on Saturday around the park and must say it felt good , I did walk slowly :)

I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing shock sensations when you sit down. I can definitely understand why that would freak you out. Have you called your doctors office to tell them about it? I would definitely encourage you to do so.

I submitted your question to our Q&A section so we can hear opinions from the board certified doctors who volunteer on RealSelf:

Update Sorry I have taken so long to write it's...

Sorry I have taken so long to write it's been a crazy few weeks
I traveled to ny with my husband and the plane ride was some what not pleasant I got a little more swollen that usual but it all got better (I travelled 2 weeks after surgery )

The shocks come and go but my dr said that was normal they are nerve ending kind of coming back
I have to admit its annoying cause it's always un expected but other than that I feet great
My pants fits so swelling is pretty much gone ( I think)
I saw dr today and he said I should be happy with the early results...... Yes I look thinner already
The massages hurt like crazy I have only done a total of 4 but I am guessing I si need like 15 or 20 cause my arms feel Lumpy and they hurt too.
Dr says the massages will help make the lumps go away so will keep u posted

Overall I feel like 85% back to normal
Patience is a must for this procedure but u have to keep on with ur daily life to keep from feeling depressed about results takenits time

Today makes 3 weeks
Keep u all posted
